On episode 2 of the 317 podcast we welcome Indianapolis legend Bob Kravitz. Bob is a columnist at The Athletic and a good friend of mine, and calling him a legend was definitely not a subtle way to poke fun at his age.
Bob brings his years of wisdom to the table to discuss the troubling L the Colts just took in their week 1 matchup to a Jags team almost entirely depleted of talent. We discuss the performance of Philip Rivers, the potential silver lining to the Marlon Mack injury, and whether or not this team can rebound and be competitive in the division like we had been expecting, or if this is a sign of things to come for the Colts.
We also dive into potential head coaches for the Pacers, including how exciting it could be to bring Becky Hammon on to break the gender barrier in NBA coaching, and the type of impact that could have both inside and outside the sports world.
Finally, we discuss the impact of whether or not The Big Ten plays its college football season and what type of ramifications could come from not playing, including how many layoffs may result across entire universities and what this season will mean for the debate on whether college athletes can really be considered normal students who do not merit financial compensation.
