Host Stu Jackson is joined by veteran high school football analyst Tom Lemming for a in-depth breakdown of each of Indiana's early signees from its 2019 recruiting class.
The guys are back together again for this weekend edition of CrimsonCast. We talk about the Crossroads Classic, with Scott filling in the eyewitness details from the event and both of us talking through the highs and lows from the game.
Then it's time to widen the lens a bit, as we discuss Juwan Morgan's continued blossoming, Robert Phinisee's development, the troublesome lack of a consistent third scoring option, and the unfortunate lack of depth on the roster currently. We also talk a bit about revised season expectations, how recruiting plays into changing the ceiling of IU basketball, and more.
Host Stu Jackson is joined by Dustin Dopirak, who covers IU, Purdue and Butler for The Athletic, for a preview of Saturday's Crossroads Classic matchup between the Hoosiers and the Bulldogs at Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis.
Back after nearly two weeks off, this episode of CrimsonCast features a good basketball conversation with Inside The Hall's Ben Ladner. We break down IU's successes and struggles on both offense and defense, talk about some of the numbers under the hood of this Hoosier team, and get into an unexpected conversation about personnel choice and offensive design. Some good, relatively wonky basketball discussion for all you lovers out there.
Host Stu Jackson is joined by Howie Lindsey, Louisville First host on 790KRD and publisher of the Louisville Rivals site, for insight on the Cardinals ahead of Saturday's contest between IU and U of L in Bloomington.
TheHoosier.com's Stu Jackson and Jon Sauber discuss IU's road win at Penn State and look ahead to Saturday's FORUM Tipoff Classic which will feature multiple IU recruiting targets.
We pick things up in the aftermath of IU's 68-66 victory over Northwestern, and talk about the positive and negative aspects of the team through the first month of the season. Galen gives his reflections of the road trip to Cameron Indoor Stadium, and we chat a bit about "The Last Days of Knight" and the late 90s in Indiana basketball.
Indiana Football's season came to an end on Saturday, losing a home Old Oaken Bucket game to Purdue 28-21. We break down the loss and talk about what went wrong for the Hoosiers this year, and take questions from our Twitter and live chat audiences on the current state of the program, the future prospects of IU football, and more.
We also get a short amount of men's basketball talk in at the end of the podcast, talking about the holiday week games, the issues with fatigue and injury, and whether there are causes for panic or concern with this roster.
Host Stu Jackson is joined by Matthew Stevens, football beat writer for the Purdue Rivals site, for insight on the Boilermakers ahead of Saturday's rivalry game.
It's feast week, so that means a lot of talk about both IU football and basketball. We start with football, revisiting the Michigan game and talking about whether there are any implications worth drawing from that effort. That then turns into a discussion about the setup of this Purdue game, how positively things have fallen for IU in the lead-up to the Bucket Game...and how vital it is that Indiana wins this football game, for a variety of reasons.
Our attention then shifts to basketball, as we discuss the Marquette victory and Arkansas loss, and look at the deeper implications of the first four games of the season as we preview the UT-Arlington and UC-Davis games. All of that, plus listener questions and more.
