We finish off the IU Football Preview Podcast Cavalcade with a patio discussion on the eve of the first game of the season. Mike Miller of the Herald Times joins us, and we talk about his perspectives on interesting stories for the 2015 season, team confidence, Nate Sudfeld’s leadership style, and IU’s (rather optimistic) chances for the season.
Scott is joined by Darren Kinnard (@deuceandabuse), Sports Director at WSIL. They talk about what to expect from this young Southern Illinois team as they come into Bloomington for the first game of the season. Are they expecting to win again like they did almost 10 years ago?
They also talk basketball and share some Bruce Weber stories.
We’re joined on this edition by the Indy Star’s Zach Osterman, who is back on the IU football beat and dropping knowledge across the board. We talk about several aspects of the IU football team, the status of the program, and the important areas that IU needs to find success (and/or avoid failure) in to find success this season.
Join Mike Petry and Michael Rayome as we detail:
- What we love and what scares us about this roster
- The Success Rate stat and why it should matter to you
- The Hurry-up, a new segment where we answer in 11 seconds or less
- This weekend’s matchup against SIU and what we’re hoping to see
Make sure you stay until the end for this week’s Hoosier Haiku!

We sat down with 24/7 Sports’ Alex McCarthy last week to talk about IU football and the upcoming season. It was outside, there was beer, and we even did a live Periscope broadcast of the whole thing. So here’s the audio-only podcast form, in which you’ll be treated to all kinds of observations on the defensive front seven, the adaptation process for the IU offense, and the general state of the IU program as we enter the 2015 season. You’ll also be treated to some wonderful ambient noises, as well as questions from the live chat crowd.
On the second half of our opening podcast salvo of the 2015 season, we take your Twitter questions about the upcoming season. Is there anything about this season that will be different from past years? Can IU beat Michigan? How secure is Kevin Wilson’s job? And what are the high-leverage games on the schedule?
After a three month hiatus, CrimsonCast is back with part one of a nearly two hour podcast previewing the 2015 IU Football season. This first part of the podcast focuses on both micro and macro issues with the team coming in to this season. We talk in depth about most of the non-line positions, with particular attention paid to the secondary, the non-QB skill positions, and the general aura of the program in Kevin Wilson’s fifth year.
Thanks for listening, and prepare to think about IU football as a reality TV series. Seriously, that’s the first thing we ask you to do this season.
On this victorious and final football episode of CrimsonCast for the 2014 season, we break down IU’s 23-16 win over Purdue in the Old Oaken Bucket game, focusing on the performances by Tevin Coleman, Zander Diamont, and the IU defense as whole. We also take some time to give the 2014 season a full post-mortem, talking about how the team played and how the injuries and other events of the year affected the pre-season expectations that many had for the squad.
We also take a look forward to 2015, talking about the make-or-break nature of the season for Kevin Wilson and his staff, and pondering the situations at quarterback and wide receiver.
11/12ths of the way through the IU football season, Scott and Galen give a recap of the surprising showing that the Hoosiers gave in Columbus this past weekend. Despite losing by 18, IU showed a considerable amount of gumption in battling the more talented Buckeyes, and we spend some time congratulating the defense and certain segments of the offense on their positive production.We also talk about the expectations of realism and fantasy, the chances of Tevin Coleman getting an invitation to New York City, and our initial feelings about the Bucket Game this coming weekend.
On this episode of CrimsonCast Rewind, Scott and Galen talk about the IU-Rutgers game from this past weekend. Yes, the score was disappointing, but were there positives to be taken from the proceedings? Are there some rays of light emanating from Zander Diamont’s on-field play? Has the defense actually improved?
We tackle these issues, as well as discussing the big latent problems on the team, and the question of whether Tevin Coleman’s appearance on this year’s squad is the biggest mismatch between individual ability and team ability in the recent history of IU football.
