Legendary voice of the Indiana Hoosiers Don Fischer talks about IU football team’s second win over Eastern Illinois. Later, Fisch takes a look at the Hoosiers upcoming game against the Ohio State Buckeyes.


“…Michael Penix…to this point, how good?”   

“…I am really excited about this kid’s career at indiana. I don’t want to go overboard on it, but…he’s the real deal. He’s got a tremendous arm. He’s got great speed, quickness. He’s smart…on the football field he knows what he’s doing out there…he’s going to make a mistake or two, because he’s young…I mean he’s going to go up against one of the best teams in the country – I think the most talented team certainly in the Big Ten, probably…in more than half the country, I don’t think anybody’s probably as talented as Ohio State is…so that said…I thinkn his upside is just astronomical, I think he’s going to be special…at this juncture…you’re going to have to live with a few mistakes as he goes along because that’s part of learning.”
