Galen is joined by Zach Osterman, IU insider for the Indy Star, to talk about Tom Crean’s firing, the past nine years of IU basketball, the status of the Indiana men’s basketball position, and what’s next for IU and for Tom Crean. Come for the expert analysis by one of IU’s most respected media members, stay for the sounds of two dogs wrestling in the distance.
On this regular season finale episode of CrimsonCast, we talk about the Big Ten Tournament draw for IU, their chances of picking up enough wins to make the NCAA Tournament as an at-large team (yes, it’s still possible), and the possible NIT opponents awaiting IU if they don’t. We also talk about Indiana’s sordid Big Ten Tournament history (TRIGGER WARNING – we go through every game from 1998-present).
We got together to talk IU basketball for a few minutes and ended up going for an hour and a half. We cover the Michigan loss, the general malaise of the program, the near future, and the far future — basically everything regarding the current and future state of the program.
It’s a noisy podcast file due to some cell phone sounds, so be forewarned. Thanks for listening.
On this episode, we talk a bit about the loss to Nebraska, discuss the broader implications of the team’s struggles and the program’s difficulty in getting over the hump, and answer a bunch of reader questions about a variety of things.
Scott and Galen recount their viewing experiences and reflections about the 2016 Foster Farms Bowl, and talk about the state of the program moving forward.
Here’s the first of three podcasts today — a sit-down interview with Zach Osterman of the Indy Star, fresh off his trip to Santa Clara for the Foster Farms bowl. We discuss the outcome of the bowl game, then take a retrospective look at the forces that decided this season for IU, breaking down the offense and defense and what made them work the way that they did. We also take a look forward at Tom Allen’s next move(s) as head football coach, and try to anticipate where he goes with his coaching staff and style of play.
We got a chance to sit down and talk with man behind the @fakecoachwilson Twitter account. Here’s our conversation, where we talk about the background and development of the account, the experiences along the way, and whether the account has a future in a post-Indiana Kevin Wilson world. We also talk about some of the funny and interesting experiences that the Twitter account has experienced along the way, and how Twitter itself has changed during the time between the start of the @fakecoachwilson account and now.
Adam and Anthony stay up late Friday night to take a look at #iubb’s next Top 25 challenge in the Butler Bulldogs.
The two preview the matchups for the Hoosiers, how the pace of the game could dictate the pace of the game, and so much more!
Don’t forget to follow the show on twitter @ADRRSN, @Alower57 and of course, @CrimsonCast!
