    It’s good to hear Max’s comments on the team. I really have enjoyed him on and off the court. So glad Michigan didn’t want him.

    Jerod & Alex, that was (as usual) a very good podcast, thank you. I truly enjoyed getting Max’s unique insight and perspective on the team and the players. I hope to hear him in broadcasting more & more.

    Sarge, I agree with you about Max. It’s a great example of how one program and style of play can fit a player better than another. Obviously Max blossomed under at IU, and that’s what I think will happen for Josh Newkirk. I think Josh could have had 10 assists against Bellarmine if IU had been hitting their threes. At the end of the year, we’ll be really happy that we have Josh!

  • Podcast should be better beginning next episode as I finally ordered a new microphone.
