On this emergency edition of CrimsonCast Live, we delve into the sudden recruiting successes of the last 24 hours, and discuss how the perspective around IU basketball has changed so rapidly. We also talk about what to expect moving forward with IU recruiting, and what we might expect from Archie Miller and company when it comes to future targets. We also delve into IU football a bit, and talk about the lead-in to the 2017 season.

We’re joined by Bloomington Herald-Times beat writer Mike Miller, as we talk about the Crean era at IU. Mike talks about his experiences on the beat covering Crean, the disconnect between the coach’s plan and the execution of that plan, and what lasting impact Crean had on the program. We also get into the coaching search, talk about some candidates, and discuss what a new coach could do to bridge the gap between the basketball program and the fan base.
A re-airing of our podcast from immediately after Tom Crean was fired. Many of you may have missed this podcast the first time around. (P.S. I’m also testing some new software to try and fix the “no pause problem” that some users have experienced).
