My Favorite IU Pod!!!!

By far the best IU basketball podcast out there. Maybe even best basketball pod, but I might be partial!! Seriously though, I am a big Alabama football fan, and I WISH there was a podcast as good as this for my other alma mater.

This is a must listen for anyone who loves IU basketball or BIG 10 basketball. Keep up the great work guys!!!! I’ve been listening for years, and your style makes it seem like I know you personally although we’ve never met.

Big I U fan but love Matt

Matt Painter was great defending the Purdue program. I wish Archie would show the same courage. After listening to your show I would like to send some adult diapers to California for Ryan to wear.
