CrimsonCast is the longest-running podcast focused on IU Athletics. Founded in 2008, the podcast provides regular discussion about Indiana football, Indiana basketball, and interesting things related to being an IU fan.
Ep 909 - IU Football Recap and Overview with Zach Osterman
Our second post-mortem podcast on IU football features special guest Zach Osterman of the IndyStar. We discuss the season that was for the Hoosiers, what went well and what went badly, and what the current state of the program is.
Ep 908 - The CrimsonCast Women's Basketball Show with Amanda Foster
Amanda goes over what happened during Indiana's trip to Las Vegas over Thanksgiving break, explaining what Grace Berger's injury means for the team and how the rest of the Hoosiers stepped up in her absence. She also previews the top-ten matchup of No. 5 Indiana and No. 6 UNC on Thursday.
Ep 907 - Men's Basketball Weekly
We look at the IU men's basketball team's 6-0 start, evaluate whether Tamar Bates is starting to make a leap, and look at other interesting statistical elements from the first 20% of the season. We then look ahead to IU's fascinating stretch over the next few weeks, evaluating where the team is in relation to upcoming opponents and giving updated previews of the games versus North Carolina, Rutgers, Arizona, and Kansas.
Ep 906 - Purdue Recap and Season Post-Mortem
IU lost on Saturday to drop their final record to 4-8 overall. We talk about the loss, some of the factors at play in the loss, and then evaluate the Hoosiers' football season as a whole.
Ep 905 - CrimsonCASH - Week 13
Scott @CrimsonCast317 is joined by James @CrimsonCast260 to pick the best bets in the B1G this week.
Ep 904 - Old Oaken Bucket Preview
The Bucket Game is a few days away, but due to the holidays it felt right to get some content out there early. DoctorGC looks at the matchup between Purdue and Indiana, highlighting some of the oddities and question marks surrounding both teams, and laying out a potential pathway to competitiveness for the Hoosiers.
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!
Galen is the 🐐
I’ve always tried to find a podcast for IUFB and IUBB that looks at my favorite college sports teams more objectively and less fan boy bias and Galen is that guy. There is a bias that obviously we want the Hoosiers to win , but it’s never unreasonable. He always has the best takes about IUBB and IUFB and I always learn something when listening. While everyone in the world gets negative quickly, Galen and Scott keep very positive vibes, which we need more of as IU fans. Overall, just a great Iu sports podcast!
