    Great job as always, guys. I really like Jon Crispin. He seems like a really down-to-earth humble kind of guy.

    I had the same reaction. A very insightful guy.

    Thank you Alex, and Jerod for another great episode!

    “Collective unit is an Archie Miller team” that one statement by Jon goes a long way to describing my hopes for the Hoosiers.
    The other highlight that I took note of was the “blue collar” blending work ethic of how Izzo has handled Miles Bridges. If I were another coach in the conference I would be taking notice with CAM in Bloomington.

    hearing pretty much everyone, close to the program and otherwise, is predicting iu finishes no higher than 6th in the BIG, and likely closer to 9th. but hey, we can all be pleasantly surprised if they actually finish higher. and it’s possible, because i’m thinking people are way too high on both wiscy and maryland. and maybe even michigan.

    so nice to hear a prominent voice in cbb coming out against paying players, especially as the solution to all the corruption. seems to be the minority opinion these days unfortunately

    Do you remember the Crispin Brothers playing at Penn State they had a really good Big man during those years (Can’t remember his name). Unfortunately, they did not have much around those three but I think they made it to the Sweet 16 one year. I love that head coach I think it was Oglesby I can’t remember. To lazy to look it up.
