The 317 Podcast: The Start of the Hoosier’s Seasons and What to Expect of the Colts After the Bye

Play episode

This week I welcome the guy who took my old job: Jon Blau! Jon is an IU athletics reporter for The Herald Times in Bloomington. He’s a good friend of mine, a fellow Penn State grad and former colleague during my time at The Herald Times.
Today we’re diving into college football, as we wind up doing almost every time we get together! Despite being delayed due to the pandemic, the Hoosiers have an interesting year on the horizon. With a few question marks around Michael Penix and the defense forced to find a way to replace the production of Marcelino Ball, it looks like it could be a boom or bust year for this team. Jon talks all of the key areas for what we both think can be a very exciting year!
We also dive into basketball, and specifically highlight the growing supporting cast that can spread the floor and take some pressure of Devonte Green. The ceiling is higher this year, but how high is it?
Zak Keefer joins me for the second half of the show this week to talk about a Colts team who we still can’t figure out. We don’t really know yet if this team is legitimately good, but at 5-2 they’re in a good position going into November with time to bring it all together. Zak has some great insights about how they can take the next step and what we might expect to see during the second half of the season.
