Ep 1037 - CrimsonCASH Championship Week
Scott and James start by discussing the hiring of the new IUFB Coach Curt Cignetti.

Including how to bet a team like Washington, when you like them to not only beat the spread, but win on the moneyline.
Ep 1036 - IU Football Lands Cignetti
Indiana football has their man. James Madison head coach Curt Cignetti is the 30th football coach in the program's history, and our hosts are excited about the move. We did a live video podcast in the immediate aftermath of the hiring --- here's the audio version (which takes a few minutes to get going due to some tech issues).
Ep 1035 - Mackenzie Holmes heads back home
Kevin and Amanda go over Indiana's key wins over Thanksgiving against Tennessee and Princeton before they preview one of the most anticipated games of the year. Mackenzie Holmes and the Hoosiers will take on the University of Maine in a non-conference matchup on Thursday, Nov.30. This is a homecoming game for Holmes and a way for the program to say thank you to one of the all-time greats.

We discuss the frustrations of losing yet another rivalry game, the microcosm of the season that played out in the way the game happened, and how IU continues to struggle in important moments down the stretch.
Great content for IU Sports and Football
Dr G and Scott always bring a great perspective to IU sports. I appreciate the fact that they cover IU football and are spot on for their takes. It can be tough to cover. They both bring interesting and insightful takes.
Insightful, rational, intelligent IU fans on FB & BB
Dr. Clavio brings an intelligence and long view to IU FB and other IU sports that is a refreshing contrast to the landscape of IUFB pod-commentary. Galen’s experience with professional media and IU a media school academic rigor is manifested in cogent thought—optimism with a grounding in reality. His speaking voice is always easy to hear and understand — and since this is a podcast, that matters. (And he likes talking about tailgating and the food requirements thereof, and that’s okay by me.)
Love Crimson Cast!
I always look forward to “Crimson Cast”. It’s so entertaining, honest, insightful, and interesting. Thanks to Galen and Scott!
