On this episode of CrimsonCast Live, we look at IU Football’s scrambling victory against Illinois, while simultaneously lamenting the absence of excitement surrounding the program as it stares bowl ineligibility in the face for yet another season. We talk a bit about the state of the defense (600 MORE YARDS SURRENDERED), the disposition of the coaching staff, and the seemingly dim prospects of a happy round trip to Madtown.
We then move on to IU basketball, and talk about a game that only one of us had seen up to that point. Discussions (or monologues) ensued surrounding the head-and-shoulders superiority of Noah Vonleh and Troy Williams to the rest of the freshman crop, the curiosity of Jeremy Hollowell, and the lingering disappointment that stemmed from a lack of consistent minutes for the probable starting unit against Chicago State. We also take a brief look ahead to the upcoming triad of non-major competition facing the Hoosiers in the next seven day period.
