On this episode of CrimsonCast, Scott and Galen recap the Duke loss, and find a lot of silver linings in the game. Lots of talk about IU's offensive efficiency, their ability to score in the paint, and their ability to limit turnovers in this contest. We also touch on the defensive and shooting issues that led to the outcome. Several positive player performances are highlighted, including Juwan Morgan and Colin Hartman. Finally, we take a step back and take stock of where this IU team is heading into their first conference games, and what their chances are of winning multiple games against their next four opponents.
TheHoosier.com's Jordan Wells shares interviews with five-star shooting guard Romeo Langford and New Albany head coach Jim Shannon from over the weekend, following New Albany's 70-58 win over Bloomington South.
Host Stu Jackson catches up with Bloomington Herald-Times IU Beat Writer Mike Miller to discuss IU football's season-ending loss at Purdue, the offseason ahead for the program, IU basketball's Big Ten-ACC Challenge tilt vs. Duke Wednesday night and more.
We take the first 30 minutes or so to dissect the loss at Purdue, which unfortunately ended Indiana football's 2017 campaign. Lots of focus on the conservative playcalling, the self-inflicted wounds, and the odd lack of energy and enthusiasm compared to the Boilermakers. We then pivot to talking about the season as a whole, the things that kept IU from making a third consecutive bowl, and the concerns and comments from listeners about the team and the coaching staff. Finally, we talk about the situation moving forward for IU football. How well does the program handle recruiting this off-season? What's the outlook for next year, and is there reason to be optimistic? Do we foresee any changes on the staff? Those questions and more, on this final football podcast of the 2017 season.
Bucket Week this year has a lot on the line for both teams, and we have several guests on today's show to chat about it. We're first joined by Kyle Charters of Gold & Black Illustrated to talk about Purdue's surprising season, their strengths and weaknesses, and their key personnel. Next, Taylor Lehman of TheHoosier.com joins us to give an update on IU's injuries, the play of the offensive line, and Richard Lagow. We then welcome back Michael Rayome from PuntJohnPunt, and take a look at the statistical details of this matchup. Finally we answer some reader mail.
All of us at CrimsonCast wish you the happiest of Thanksgivings. Be safe on the roads this year.
TheHoosier.com's Jordan Wells is joined by contributor Jim Reamer to breakdown Archie's packline defense, the team's progress this season and more.
We take the first segment of the podcast to talk about IU football. A dominating victory over Rutgers has created a compelling Old Oaken Bucket matchup with a lot on the line for both teams, and this becomes the last major chance for this year's team to make a statement about the year. Are fans sufficiently excited about the team and the chance of going to a third straight bowl? We also talk about the impressive offensive aspects of the Rutgers victory. Then, we switch gears to talk basketball (22:00), focusing on the early year offensive struggles, the problems with lack of veteran leadership so far, and the importance of the next three games.
On this episode, Galen talks IU basketball with Inside Indiana's Ben Ladner, chats IU football with TheHoosier.com's Taylor Lehman, and previews IU Men's Soccer with the IDS's Josh Eastern. Plus, reader questions and comments!
We spend the first 20 minutes of the pod today breaking down IU football's victory over Illinois, highlighting the impressive performance of the defense, the contributions of Richard Lagow, the surprising success of the running game, and the continually uninspiring offensive playcalling. Then (20:20) we move over to a discussion of IU basketball, recapping the Indiana State debacle, rejecting the notion that panic is logical in this situation, and evaluating how much of a work in progress this IU program might actually be. We also give a quick preview of tonight's game vs Howard.
TheHoosier.com's Jordan Wells is joined by Chris Lee of VandySports.com to update the latest in the recruitments of Nashville (Tenn.) Brentwood Academy five-star point guard Darius Garland and New Albany (Ind.) High five-star shooting guard Romeo Langford.
