The Hoosier Sound | IU Sports Podcast

We are the official podcast of IndianaHQ. Our mission and goal is simple: we want to bring in-depth analysis and coverage for Indiana University sports to as many fans as possible across a multitude of modern platforms. "The Hoosier Sound" was founded in 2017 by Noah Freeman and Matt Lukens who had a passion for all IU sports. The guys wanted to give listeners analysis of programs such as Indiana basketball, Indiana football, Indiana soccer, Indiana women's basketball, Indiana baseball, Indiana swim and dive, and more. We also do a daily IU sports news roundup called "Hoosier Sound-Off."... Show More

Matt and Nithin wonder why there has not been a lineup change yet, and the guys dig deeper into what issues they see at the beginning of games. Also, the Hoosiers head into a week where they must...

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times. Okay, that's the last time we will ever use that Dickens line. Indiana went to Iowa City and knocked off the fourth-ranked Hawkeyes, but not even three days later, killed the buzz, losing to a struggling Rutgers team. The Scarlet Knights stopped a five-game losing streak and won their first ever game in Assembly Hall. Matt and Nithin recap both contests, and look into what In...

It's time to address the elephant in the room. After a brutal 81-69 home loss to Purdue, the Hoosiers have now dropped eight straight to the Boilermakers. Archie Miller is 0-6 against the in-state rival, and Hoosier fans' displeasure is growing, to say the least. Should IU move on from Miller in the offseason? Will athletic director Scott Dolson entertain the idea? Also, reports are circulating that Indiana will hire Charlt...

After a disappointing college football selection on Sunday, Matt and Nithin attempt -- and fail -- to make sense of how the selection committee passed on Indiana, 6-1, and No. 7 in the AP Poll, for a New Year's Six bowl game.
