    I’m digging the new intro soundtrack! As great as “Watford for the win”, “It’s Indiana”, and “Jones…” were (not so sure about that last one, actually) it’s nice to be able to focus on more recent accomplishments again. We Hoosier fans already do enough pining for the “good old days” as it is!

    Hearing stories about how chemistry is developed and teammates lighting a fire under eachothers’ arses like his text before the nd game is cool. Awesome to have things like that out in the open to remeber the season by for us fans.

  • Jah. I haven’t listened to this one yet, but little things like that are priceless for the diehards. Little golden nuggets of Hoosier-dom. Max was such a great addition; sad that it didn’t last longer.

    We haven’t had a lot of one year Seniors,but Max will be the favorite for a long time.

    Great kid. Wish Max the very best. Reminder that EXPERIENCED leadership is huge. Losing YF/MB/NZ’s leadership all at one time creates next year’s biggest hurdle.

    With Max’s play and now his words, great testament to Coach’s ability to develop players. Has to be a big plus with recruiting.
