    Fred Glass steps down, Kalen DeBoer to Fresno State and National Signing Day

    In a dead period on the court for the basketball teams, the news off the court has been aplenty. The biggest item of not only the week but one of the biggest news items of the year came this when Fred Glass announced he'd be stepping down as athletic director. Jacob and Auston discuss his legacy, how much the men's basketball team's struggles may weigh that down and his role in elevating multiple non-revenue sports.
    Then, the two move onto the departure of Kalen DeBoer and where the Indiana football team goes from there. With multiple in-house candidates potentially worthy of promotion and many names expected to be linked to the job out-of-house, there will be plenty of candidates available for an upstart Indiana team.
    In the lastly off-court news, Auston gives a detailed look at the recruiting class Tom Allen locked up during National Signing Day. While the class may not have the star power of years before, it is a deep class that has promise.
    Jacob and Auston then wrap it up by talking about the men's and women's basketball teams. In the men's side, the Hoosiers' up-and-down performances leave lots of questions to be answered.. On the women's side, an unannounced extension for Teri Moren leaked out on Wednesday, which serves as just another huge positive in a great season.

    Optimism for breakthrough against Michigan, tournament time for men's soccer

    While Indiana football suffered another loss to a top-25 opponent, the tides are turning for the Hoosier football program. Auston and Jacob break down a loss to Penn State in which Indiana outplayed a top-25 Big Ten opponent on the road but shot itself in the foot with a host of mistakes in every facet.
    Auston gives his experience in Beaver Stadium before the two talk about the game, the mistakes, the missed opportunities and why all of that has both of them optimistic about what the immediate future holds for Indiana. Yet again, the two praise Peyton Ramsey as he continues to shed every narrative about him while also giving kudos to David Ellis and Ty Fryfogle.
    Then, they turned their attention to Michigan and a golden opportunity. With the Wolverines down this season, coming off one rivalry game and on the heels of another, Indiana has its best chance in years at upsetting Michigan. The two talk about the Wolverine team, Shea Patterson and how the sides match-up before debating whether Whop Philyor's availability is necessary to pull off an upset.
    After breaking down everything Indiana football, Jacob talks about the two stressful Big Ten Tournament games that the Hoosiers won over Maryland and Michigan to capture the program's 10th double. The two then look at the daunting NCAA Tournament draw handed to the team with rematches against Kentucky, Notre Dame, Maryland or Michigan all possible.

    Previewing a top 25 showdown with Penn State

    Previewing a top 25 showdown with Penn State

    A historic season for Indiana football became even more when the Hoosiers entered the top 25 polls for the first time since 1994.. While the College Football Playoff committee may not be in on the #9WINDIANA movement, Auston and Jacob are firmly on board as they bring another episode of The Podcast Was Good.
    After reveling in the fact that the Hoosiers are ranked, Jacob breaks down the bowl outlook and some of the current projections. Indiana currently is slated most likely to go to the Gator Bowl but an upset in the coming weeks over Penn State or Michigan would shake things up..
    Speaking of upsets, the two then jump into a preview of a match-up on the road against Penn State. The Nittany Lions are coming off an upset on the road themselves against Minnesota but are still one of the best teams in the conference. Offensively, Penn State has two dynamic weapons and a young, improving quarterback that has wreaked havoc this year. Defensively, Penn State has a top-10 unit but also was torn apart last week by the Gophers, offering a blueprint for a Hoosier upset.
    Lastly, the duo looks at the huge win from the women's basketball team, acknowledge the men's team's existence and preview the semi-final match-up against Maryland for the men's soccer team in the Big Ten Tournament.

Behind Teri Moren, the Hoosiers have built a deep team with tons of potential as well as a bright future moving forward. After a brief (read: VERY brief) discussion of the men's basketball team, the two end the podcast by talking about the upcoming Big Ten Tournament for men's soccer.
