Nov. 11 - Maryland Recap And Basketball Update
On the latest episode of CrimsonCast, the guys talk both football and basketball. IU's fifth football win is first on the docket, as we discuss what led to the victory, the sudden emergence of Deep Threat Peyton Ramsey, and how the statistics painted a far different picture of the game than the final score did. We then take some listener questions, before moving on to basketball. We offer our thoughts on the performances from the first two games of the season, and on the early emergence of Evan Fitzner as a contributor.
Nov. 8 - Mike Miller Previews Football, Evaluates Basketball
We're back from a few days off with Mike Miller of the Bloomington Herald-Times. We tackle the impending IU football game first, looking at the similarities and differences between the Hoosiers and the Terrapins, and talking about the things that have allowed Maryland to have a marginally more successful season thus far than Indiana. We then jump to basketball and do a bit of post-season opener recapping, talking about the maiden voyage of Romeo Langford, the play of Rob Phinisee and Devonte Green, the rotational implications of Damezi Andrerson and Evan Fitzner, and the expectations for the non-conference season.
Nov. 4 - IU Basketball Preview With Scott And Galen
After interviewing everybody else, the CrimsonCast co-hosts sit down and have a discussion about their expectations for the season. Are people looking for too much out of this team? Where do things sit in the grand scheme of Archie Miller's program-building exercise? And what are some of the key items that we're looking for during the upcoming year? We try to talk through some of those questions as we get excited for the start of a brand new campaign.
Nov. 2 - Zach Osterman And Josh Eastern
Josh Eastern of The Hoosier Network and BTN Student U stops by briefly to give us an IU men's soccer update, as Todd Yeagley's men head into Big Ten Tournament play this weekend. We then sit down and talk extensively with IndyStar IU Insider Zach Osterman about what he saw from last night's men's basketball exhibition vs Southern Indiana, and what we might glean from the performance as the Hoosiers head into the start of the regular season.
Nov. 1 - IU Basketball Preview With Dustin Dopirak Of The Athletic
We welcome Dustin Dopirak, current IU basketball writer for The Athletic and former Bloomington Herald-Times scribe, back to the podcast to talk IU hoops. We delve into several topics, including:
- How Archie Miller fits in to IU basketball culture
- Whether Miller's statements on the team's shooting prowess should be concerning
- What we're looking for out of the first few games
- How long it'll take to draw conclusions about the ability of this year's team
- Whether Evan Fitzner leading the team in 3 point attempts would be a good or bad thing
It's always a pleasure to have Dustin on the show, and we're looking forward to reading him at The Athletic throughout the year.
