What Are The Odds That Devin Funchess Returns?Jan 8, 2020 1471
1075thefan.com's Kevin Bowen joins the Ride with JMV to discuss Jeopardy, his view on the approach the Colts will take in addressing the quarterback position in the draft and free agency, and talk a little Pacers basketball with Victor Oladipo's return being announced today as January 29th against the Chicago Bulls.
Do you think the Colts would want Funchess back more than he would want to return?...
"I don't think he is coming back because I don't think Funchess wants to come back to be frank. That's pretty much where I'm at right now and clearly when he signed here, it was a one year prove it contract with Andrew Luck. Now it's no Andrew Luck and he's getting a little bit older, and maybe a prove it deal is all he's going to get. I don't know if some team is going to offer him a three year deal for x amount of money."
Are the Colts going to make suitable changes?...
"They are certainly more equipped. I mean they have resources like no other from ninety-five to ninety-six million dollars in cap space, three draft picks in the top fourty-four. I think them, Jacksonville, and Miami are the only three teams with that draft capital so resources is not a question. The question more comes down to Chris Ballard and his philosophical approach."

Who Has Been The Unsung Hero For The Pacers This Season?Jan 7, 2020 942
Fox Sports Indiana's Jeremiah Johnson joined JMV off an up and down stretch for the Pacers without Stars Victor Oladipo and Malcolm Brogdon. Whether Justin Holiday or TJ McConnell have been more important to the Pacers success so far this season, Myles Turner progressing recently, and looking ahead as the Pacers take on the top of the Eastern Conference over the next few weeks.
On TJ McConnell leading the 2nd unit:
"Atlanta was a tough loss and you're thinking that you might be without McConnell for a week with the ankle injury, Brogdon isn't on the trip and you look down the bench at who else you have that can play PG. McConnell ends up playing and is calm and makes sure the right guys get the basketball. TJ Warren was the star (vs Charlotte) but McConnell deserves a lot of credit for that win."
On if Malcolm Brogdon's injuries should make Pacers fans concerned:
"I don't know if concerned is the right word because I think that's close to panicking, I think it's problematic but to me the foot was kind of the red flag. It's what caused him to drop to the 2nd round and gave him issues last year. For this back injury though, they've done the MRI's and Nate has said there is nothing to worry about long term so as long as his foot is good you're just chalking this up to bad luck and having 3 or 4 things in a row."

Greg Rakestraw fills in for JMV today and Rick Venturi is back for his weekly breakdown of what is going on across the NFL Playoffs, shares a story about Mike McCarthy, and provides his thoughts on whether Tom Brady is done in New England.

"Personally, what you'd really like to do is be creative and really move up in the draft. Here's your problem, basically you have five guys, but there is a big separation between the top three and the bottom two that people are talking about being first round guys."
How do you stop Lamar Jackson?...
"Well you are going to have to force him to win in drop back situations. You are going to have to stop the run and the run now isn't a classic run. This is a run that is not only physical but it is an eleven gap run. You are going to have to have to play split safeties and corner blitzes around the box. I think Tennessee has a decent team to do this because they have really good linebackers that can run to the edge."

What Do The Colts Have That's Good?Dec 30, 2019 2545
Rick Venturi joined JMV for their weekly breakdown of the Colts game including a preview of the off-season, what the Colts have on both sides of the ball, and breakdown Jacoby Brissett and what resulted in him to call off following the knee injury against the Pittsburg Steelers.
What's good on the offensive side?...
"Assuming that we get Castonzo back, I would say with the exception of our right guard, that offensive line is a strength and can be an even better strength. I think Marlon [Mack] is a very good back and you have enough depth around him with Hines as a specialist and Wilkins as a good filler. I think Doyle is a good core tight end because he can block the edge, do a lot of things for you, he isn't a game breaker, but he is solid."
Are you concerned about Anthony Castonzo's retirement comments?...
"Well, it's a bit concerning because when you are dealing with Anthony, you are dealing with a really smart guy. You're not dealing with a guy who says things loosely. From the same token, that can be the beginning of the negotiations also. That can be some profiling at this point in time to try and set your positions saying that you may not want to play and the next thing is that you want to look at all your different offers."

ESPN.com's Mike Wells is back on another Friday edition of the Ride with JMV to discuss if Chris Ballard is in another situation like he was in his last season with the Kansas City Chiefs in terms of addressing the quarterback position and the two biggest issues that have plagued the Colts all season.
Were Frank Reich and Nick Sirianni on the same page?...
"Based off of what Frank Reich said today, I think the lines of communication were a little crossed up on that one. I'm sure the Colts didn't like what Sirianni said, but at the same point it's what we've all been seeing. I'm not going to fault [Jacoby] Brissett for always saying that his knee is fine because that is just Brissett. He's not going to be an excuse maker off of it, but at some point you have to say "Hey this kids knee is bothering him" and address it at some point."

What do you think we are going to hear this off-season from Chirs [Ballard] on the review of this season?...
"They will say all the right things about Jacoby Brissett and I will be beyond shocked if they say he is not our guy or he is our guy. I just don't see it because they are going to keep their options open even if they know after first three weeks of evaluation after the season is over."
What is going on inside the Jacksonville Jaguars front office?Dec 26, 2019 838

Should the Colts Get Nyheim Hines More Involved In The Offense?Dec 23, 2019 2628
Rick Venturi joined JMV for their weekly breakdown of the Colts game including Nyheim Hines explosive day as a punt returner, why he hasn't exploded on the offensive side like some expected, taking another look at Jacoby Brissett as a long term option at QB, and previewing the season finale vs Jacksonville.
On the Colts use of Nyheim Hines:
"He was going to be the punt returner a year ago, I don't think there is any question that right off the bat they could've used his explosiveness. Remember it was terrible, he fumbled punts and all the sudden he got into the game and he wasn't ready, he wasn't looking good at all. I think they made a wise decision at the time not to ruin the kid because that can happen, I think it happened to (Philip) Dorsett too. All of the sudden you put him in there before he's ready and then he can lose confidence in all parts of his game."
On Jacoby Brissett as the future QB of the Colts:
"If you're waking up in the morning and asking if he can take you to the promised land, I think you're asking for a lot. I think right now, you're looking at a guy you can play with, has some good days and needs to be surrounded by a lot of good people, better than he has but is lacking in some areas."

The Colts Should Be Embarrassed by MNF ThrashingDec 17, 2019 2512

Rick and JMV react to the Colts 34-7 beat down by the Saints on Monday Night Football, if the team quit, why the defense is so abysmal, and where the Colts go in the offseason now that they are officially eliminated from playoff contention.
Rick Venturi on the Defense allowing Brees to go 29/30 on Pass Attempts:
"I hate to do this, it sounds cynical but it is what it is. To me this was the confluence of a Junior High Scheme meeting a coach and QB with a doctorate. No concealment, remedial area zones, ability to cover man-to-man was just atrocious and really this defense has been awful for a month. Every QB has been over 100 passer rating and this has been this way for 2 years. It's really sucked for 2 years."
Venturi on Special Teams issues:
"Special teams operation has been as big a disappointment as anything on this team from beginning to end. This operation is just not even close to where we thought it was and in that sense it's been a terrible season, I don't think we saw it coming."

If injuries or kicking problems ruined the Colts season:
"Kicking. One of the FG's was a 29 yard kick vs Los Angeles and the XP. XP against Miami could've sent the game into OT, and then the laces kick in Pittsburgh. Everything else, no Luck, Brissett being up and down, the injuries. You make 3 kicks and at worst you're 8-5, to me it's not even close."

After years of being in his corner, JMV brings up some concerning things he's seen from Myles Turner this season and his future on the Indiana Pacers.
On Myles Turner's struggles vs the Clippers:
"Last night looked to me in watching this game and I can't stay behind a dude that goes out and look like that. And I don't give a crap about a 5 & 5. I know 5 & 5 (points & rebounds) is a big joke, you got to be better than 5 & 5 and ya I would agree. But the listless, pouty behavior, I can't be apart of that. I can't be apart of that."
How Have the Colts Lost 5 of the Last 6?Dec 9, 2019 2322
Coach Rick Venturi joins JMV to break down what is happening with the Colts. After a hot start, the Colts are now 6-7.
On season so far...
“When we started the season, we didn’t know what we had. We hoped to be very competitive with a very good defense. I thought we set a high bar for the defense - they could carry us in the run game and we would win a lot of games 21-17. When we hit that 5-2 with wins over Kansas City and Houston, two division leaders at the moment, our expectations elevated only being destroyed in the last couple of weeks.”
On where the problems are...
“There is a talent issue and a schematic issue. I had a lot of problems with the scheme for a year and a half and then we went through a period where we decided we were going to be very aggressive. We played a much higher percentage of man to man and more matchup coverage with our coverage four. We have gotten away from that 80% area zone and all of a sudden we are just evolving back. This is what bothers me. You know coming into the game that Evans is a vertical guy and on the first series you shuffle into it like he is some bumpkin and the next thing you know he is five yard behind you. I don’t get it.”
On Adam Vinateiri...
“There is so much spin that comes out of there. Going back to the beginning of the season, there is so much spin and when you do that and not hold people accountable but instead think everything is great, then you are slowing going to lose credibility and that is what has happened. It is beginning to happen with this regime just like it did the last regime. I think a lot of this is a lot of things that have been created. Obviously there a meniscus issue - they are going to go in and fix it - but I think it is more in his head. I watched him kick in the preseason and I think the Colts have done the right thing. At this point they are going to give him an honorable way out.”

Jack Doyle Signs 3 Year Extension with the Colts, Who Else is in the Plans for GM Chris Ballard?Dec 6, 2019 1147
ESPN.com's Mike Wells joined JMV to discuss the news that Adam Vinatieri will not play on Sunday vs Tampa Bay, if the Colts regret the way they've handled his injury situation this season, they react to the news that TE Jack Doyle signed a 3 year extension and discuss who else could be in Chris Ballard's plans for the offseason.
On Eric Ebron's up and down 2019 season:
"I think he's hurting himself, by if you look at the situation of how this all went down and all of the sudden he has this ankle injury that shut his season down. You have a reputation around the league and all of the sudden it's going to hurt your value and he didn't have a great season."
If Adam Vinatieri will kick again for the Colts:
"If McLaughlin goes out and has a great performance Sunday, how do you put Adam out there? I think you definitely put him in a position where you have sort of deal for the final home game to honor him for what he's done. I like Adam as a person but you miss a season high 14 kicks and only made 68% of you field goal attempts for the season. I just don't see how Vinatieri kicks again for the Colts."

Did the Colts botch their handling of Adam Vinatieri going back to August?Dec 5, 2019 924
The Athletic's Zak Keefer joined JMV to discuss the recent news of Adam Vinatieri most likely not kicking Sunday vs TB, if the Colts would change things going back to training camp knowing what they know now, and how he thinks he will announce his retirement at the end of the season.
On how the Colts have handled the situation since Training Camp:
"Don't you think if they could go back to late August, early September, late September they would've made a move? I think gun to their head they would've made a move. This has been one headache after another and at this point it just feels like it's way way too late."
On how there isn't a clean end in sight for Vinatieri announcing his retirement:
"I know Vinny does not want to go out like this, I know it's important to him. It's tough because is he going to do what (Robert) Mathis did and announce his retirement before the last home game? The weird thing is that the last home game is the 2nd to last game so what if he does that and kicks poorly, how does that go? Mathis had such a a perfect ending, he played well, he had a sack. He got to do it on his own terms it's just so rare. With Vinny it's just so awkward right now and it's so weird. I don't know how this ends well."

Colts sign K Chase McLaughlin off Waivers, is this the end for Adam Vinatieri?Dec 4, 2019 1520
Kevin Bowen joined JMV to discuss the Pacers rumors and if trading Myles Turner is inevitable, the Colts crossroads and what it will take for a postseason run, and about halfway through their conversation the news broke that the Colts claimed Kicker Chase McLaughlin off of waivers after Adam Vinatieri was listed on the injury report with a knee injury. Have we already seen the last time Vinatieri has kicked in a Colts uniform?
On if we have already seen Adam Vinatieri kick for the last time in a Colts uniform:
"It's interesting because as this news breaks when you make a claim you would of had to make that claim yesterday, 24 hours ago. So I wonder if this (knee) injury in the Tennessee game or what was the reasoning. Obviously Chase McLaughlin kicked in San Francisco and worked our for the Colts in week 3 but it looks for now that the Colts have added some sort of insurance at the kicker position."
If Adam Vinatieri has been working through an injury the whole season:
"I think he is hurt, he was hurt in the preseason with that plant leg. When you've asked Vinatieri where he's at health wise, he's limited, he's hurt. Just because he hasn't been on the injury report, this is a guy that is clearly injured. He's hurt and it's not shocking to me because he's going to be 47 years old in a couple weeks. I think back to the Buffalo game last year he gets a little banged up with that groin and he misses 2 XP that game. Any sort of injury for a guy his age it's going to be a bit more exasperated for a guy his age."

What will IU fans learn after tonight's game vs Florida State?Dec 3, 2019 989
Jeff Goodman from Stadium joined JMV to get a full breakdown of the Big 10/ACC Challenge, what he expects from Indiana this season, why he isn't sold on Purdue but trusts Matt Painter, and why he's impressed by Butler!
On what he expects of IU this season:
"We have no idea what to expect of this Indiana team to be honest, they've done what they're supposed to do and now you get a Florida State team that is playing well. I've moved them from unranked to the 10 spot. Florida State doesn't have that one star but they really guard. For Indiana you have to be healthy which they're not again and I think Trayce Jackson-Davis has been really good so far but Florida State is at a different level from what they've seen so far."
Will Matt Painter find some shot makers on this Purdue season?:
"I think the hard part of this team is where they're going to get their scoring from. When you're playing Jihad Proctor a grad transfer from High Point 30-35 minutes per game it's probably a little more than you want. They've got some good players, Matt Haarms is a good player, Trevion Williams is a good player, same thing with Aaron Wheeler but they aren't stars. (Nojel) Eastern can't shoot, can't score so you need guys around him that are going to score and they don't have enough of that on this team. I think Matt (Painter) is going to have to win with defense but I trust Matt Painter. I do, and I think everyone does but I think it's going to be hard for him because he's going to have to grind out a lot of wins this year, especially in Big Ten play."
Is Jacoby Brissett the Colts QB of the Future? Rick Venturi breaks down the Colts loss to the TitansDec 2, 2019 2540
Rick Venturi joined JMV for his weekly segment to dissect what wrong for the Colts vs Tennessee, why this season has become a season of "what ifs" and answering some questions about the future of QB for the Colts, WR overhaul, and improving the place kicking for next year.
On if Brissett is a long term answer at QB for the Colts:
"Ya I have to say that he's not wearing well, I've gone through a whole evolution with him. I remember the 2017 season and there was a lot to like, the intangibles, and yet there were things to worry about. The QBR was never there, the accuracy was never there, and then in training camp this year I didn't think he looked very sharp, there was a lot of carry over from 2017...and then he had a pretty good start to the season, that this was going to be a team that if he made enough plays and he's really tough and he did early in the season all the way to the Denver game where he runs out of the end zone and makes the great throw downfield. Since from when he got hurt he's looked like he was in 2017 he looks a lot more like that preseason doubt that I said before. I think you have to let it play out and definitely let it play out over a whole season before you give a full evaluation."
Why Running back Jonathan Williams didn't play a lot of snaps:
"He slipped on a run, he had the terrible holding penalty that makes you look bad. In the meantime Wilkins looked really good, Hines is playing as good on offense as anyone on the team. They might have thought that the combo of Wilkins and Hines was better but that's life in the NFL, you go from folk hero for two week and all of the sudden you're there grabbing some bench."

Rick Venturi previews a must win match up for the Colts vs TennesseeNov 25, 2019 2349
Coach Rick Venturi joins JMV for his weekly discussion of the Colts. Coach Rick talks about the news of Ebron, the Colts lack of passing and the upcoming matchup against the Titans.
On sudden news of Ebron being placed on IR...
“Well it was surprising to me honestly simply because we knew he had some issues but nothing was publicized. I guess all of our attention went to Hilton or Mack. it was surprising and it depletes us one more play making guy. It is a tough pill to swollen when we are in these desperation type days. I think they were smart enough to go get Travis back because he is sort of a hybrid, a guy that you can use in match up situations. Now Jack Doyle is going to be their primary tight end so they need a space players to get the passing game going.”
On the Tennessee Titans...
“I define them as average plus where they have had three straight seasons with a 9-7 record and they are coming in 6-5. They have quietly come in but I think this team is impressive. They have been impressive since Tannehill has taken over. I mentioned before that Tannehill would make them better after struggling with Mariota, who never could figure it out or get an identity. Tannehill and now they are 4-1 with him. They had a big game yesterday and I absolutely amazed at what their defense can do. They were also able to get tons of yardage, 471 yards, and the ball only 23 minutes. They got those yards because of explosive plays.”
“I think number one, they become dangerous now because of Tannehill. He is having a terrific five weeks. He is throwing it 71% and while he has always had a pretty good percentage, this is the highest he has been. He has thrown over 1,400 yards and has a passer rating of 111.4, and then add 123 yards rushing including three touchdowns. He is a guy who has really made them different.”
On Devin Funchess...
“The one thing I do believe, because we saw it in preseason and early in the season before he got hurt, Jacoby will throw the fade to Funchess, even if there is tight coverage. I do believe that he has faith in pushing the ball downhill to him and he will back fade him because Funchess is the one guy he feels confident throwing him the 50/50 ball. Otherwise, Jacoby is hesitant to throw that ball because I think in his own mind, there is no reason to feel confident that someone will catch it. With Funchess, anything is an upgrade to what we have now.”
Who is the Colts WR #2 of the future? Rick Venturi breaks down the Colts loss to HoustonNov 22, 2019 2398
Rick Venturi joined JMV for a full recap of the Colts loss to the Texans, why the passing game struggled to get anything going against a depleted Houston secondary, and if he thinks Jacoby Brissett is QB1 for the Colts for the future.
Venturi on the WR problem with the Colts:
"I don't believe that this team has had a legit #2 Wide Receiver since Reggie Wayne. He was obviously a #1 but later in his career he became a great #2 next to TY (Hilton). He could go inside to the slot, maybe #2 is not right maybe it was 1a 1b but we haven't had a legit #2 WR, even when fully healthy, since then."
Venturi on if Jacoby Brissett is the #1 QB of the Colts for the future:
"I do think we live in a world of over reaction, after the Houston win you could've said he was top 15, top 10 in the league, after this loss you can say that you can't win with him. I was very ambivalent about him in the preseason, over the course of 11 games I've seen a little bit of all of it. He is a guy you want to like. He has so many good qualities, he has so much toughness and I think he has a skill level. When you talk about long term being the guy I have a little trouble evaluating him right now because I think the lack of chunk plays is due to how they're trying to win. The mantra is run, play defense, don't turn it over and lets see if we can make 1 or 2 plays in the 4th quarter."

What Do The Colts Do Without Mack?Nov 21, 2019 1031
Chris Hagan joins the Ride With JMV to discuss the Colts Texans game.
”Will the winner tonight win the AFC South?”
“I think there is a 75% chance of whoever wins this wins the division. If the Colts win tonight, they will have a huge stranglehold over the Texans. As far as a regular-season game goes, this is as big as it gets.”
“TY Hilton and his dominance over the Texans is noted.”
“He is not the most media-friendly guy, but he has the team’s respect. He is one of those guys who can hang his hat on this team. I am more interested to see how the Texans can stop him.”
“What do we do without Mack?”
“I think they still need to establish the run game even without him. We need to take some pressure off Brissett. If they can do that, they win.

Colts Defense Has Been In Lock Down Mode Since Kansas CityNov 18, 2019 2734
Coach Rick Venturi joins JMV after the Colts win a big conference game in a dominating fashion over the Jaguars.
On what the win meant for the Colts...
“Every game at this stage of the season is humungous. It almost takes on a playoff atmosphere. I think it was really important after these last two weeks, and particularly that clunker last week, to regain confidence for the entire franchise. No matter what people say and what face they put on, when you go through a bad patch like that, there is a confidence lag and the only way you get it back is with performance. Obviously staying undefeated in the south, and now they are totally back in control of their destiny.”
On game against Jaguars...
“After a real tough first half with the score being 10 to 7, offensively, we had a bad two series at the end of the half where we got sacked. They came out in the second half and really dominated both sides of the ball and won the second half 23-0. Obviously that is what we needed and it was just the doctors order. Everyone got a breather when it finally wasn’t in a nail bitter like it has been for the past two months.”
On Colts defense...
“That defense for the last five weeks has been very good. It started with the Kansas City game when Matt Eberflus made a very strong tempo change. Point totals are down, everything has gone down really. It was a little bit of a shaky start on Sunday but the Colts played 50 minutes until that last giveaway touchdown. It was 50 minutes of shut-them-down football and I thought that Matt did a good job in that he had a really good mix. He is playing with young corners and he still played aggressive man to man. He is at his best when he times the blitz. He is trying to come up with new wrinkles and they have been very successful at it.”
All Elite Wrestling Comes to IndianapolisNov 18, 2019 862
Tony Kahn joins JMV to talk all things All Elite Wrestling. Kahn, a native Hoosier, is the founder, CEO and President of All Elite Wrestling.
On coming to Indianapolis…
“I feel amazing about utilizing Indianapolis. I grew up about 100 miles west of Indy and have been coming to Indianapolis my whole life for sports and entertainment events. I’m really glad to be here.”
On new league…
“It was a right time to start a new wrestling league because there were a lot of fans that were looking for a wrestling show to watch and there wasn’t anything out there that was right for them. There was also a huge array of great wrestlers that were going to be available at the beginning of 2019 so I thought it was the greatest free agent crop. We started in January 2019 and signed a big roster of wrestlers and now you are going to be seeing All Elite Wrestling Dynamite.”
On what Kahn looks for in wrestlers...
“They come in all shapes and sizes and if you watch A.E.W., you will see that because we are a diverse company. You will see wrestlers of different genders and shapes and to me, I don’t think there is any one thing I look for other than the fact you have to be captivating. You have to be captivating somehow and in hopefully more ways than one. The best wrestlers have a combination of being a great athlete and their matches are fun to watch. You want to have someone who is an entertaining talker who the audience can get behind or someone who rallies the audience so that you don’t want to get behind them.”

Hoosiers Take on a Penn State team that is Looking to Bounce Back After Their Lone LossNov 15, 2019 607
Don Fischer, the voice of the Hoosiers, joins JMV to preview the Hoosiers trip to the Happy Valley to take on Penn State.
On Penn State…
“They obviously are coming off their lone loss of the season so they will be mad and have something to play for because if they can knock off Ohio St. at the end of the season, they can very easily jump into the Eastern Division Championship. They are still playing for something and Indiana is still playing for something to get to the best bowl they can get to.”
On quarterback fight…
“Sean Clifford throws three interceptions. That actually doubled his total for the year so the guy has been very proficient this year. He is a really good quarterback who we know is going to want to bounce back in a really big way. He will be on home on top of that...The good news for Indiana is that they have had a week to recover after learning the news that Penix is out for the rest of the season. Peyton Ramsey, who has been a starter for two years, has stepped in there and done a tremendous job when he has played this year. Everyone knows how well he has played, and what a leader he is and I am sure he will be ready for the matchup as well.”
Who Will Win the MVP Race?Nov 15, 2019 1046
Mike Wells joins JMV to talk about the Browns vs. Steelers mishap, the current MVP race, and the Colts upcoming game against the Jaguars.
On Myles Garrett suspension…
“It is definitely a proper punishment because he acted like a complete fool and idiot for what he did last night on Mason Rudolph. If you are sitting there tugging on a quarterbacks helmet and then you sit there and swing at him while using all 200 something pounds to pretty much try to knock him out like you are Mike Tyson. If he landed even more clean, who knows what sort of damage would have happened to Rudolph.”
On MVP race…
“I don’t think Deshaun Watson is going to win MVP. I have been very impressed with what he has been doing but I do believe this is Lamar Jackson’s MVP to lose. I think he has played out of his mind and has made “draft experts” look silly of what he can do. I still believe that even if Deshaun comes into Baltimore and the Texans beat the Ravens, I still do believe it is Lamar Jackson’s trophy to lose.”
On current state of the Colts...
“I can’t put this on Frank Reich. I think what we saw two weeks ago was an undisciplined team with their mistakes and I think that we have talked Adam Vinatieri to death. Last week you are looking at a situation where Brian Hoyer was the complete opposite quarterback that he was in the previous game against the Steelers. The defense is doing it’s part but the offense is not carrying it’s weight. When I say them carrying their weight, I mean that the offensive line has regressed from what they were earlier in the season.”
Myles Garrett Got What He DeservedNov 15, 2019 835

Oladipo Should Be Back By The Third Week Of DecemberNov 12, 2019 723
J. Michael joins The Ride With JMV to discuss the Pacers.
“How good was the news about Oladipo?”
“I kind of expected that he would be going full-court soon, we will know more by December. He obviously wasn’t dunking or going crazy, but he could do everything else pretty well and was the most athletic person on the court. I think they will air on the side of caution. They would hate him to be hurt again.”
“When will he return?”
“I would say the third week of December. That is not based on any facts because no one knows, but that is just my guess from what I’ve seen. I would be shocked if it was in January.”
“Myles Turner is out again, is this worst than we thought?”
“I think it was. I saw him running and gunning so he is at least able to practice. I think they thought Myles was close to coming back. Based on the information that the team has released, I would think he will be back sooner than later. Last year he had a game in Charollete he took a game off when he did poorly due to an injury so I don’t he wants to repeat that.”

The Colt's Margin Of Error Is NonexistentNov 12, 2019 1289
Greg Rakestraw joins The Ride With JMV to discuss the struggling Colts and how they can improve.
“Will there be a change of kickers after this game?”
“No, I think they have ridden this horse too long for them to change it. I think they will stick with the status quo. I would have handled this differently, preferably earlier this year, but we are not the only team to have this problem. I don’t know why they are handling it this way, but it is the way it is.”
“It seems when they lose it is their fault.”
“I know we look at the kicking, but this is not the only problem the team is facing. There certain plays every game that swings the game either way. You would say that the Colts have lost more than they won in the past couple of games.”
“These upcoming games will determine a lot for the rest of the season.”
“Yes they will, but these past games have eliminated all of our margin for error. We are in big trouble if we cannot win these upcoming games and we are not looking strong.”

What should the Colts do about Adam Vinatieri?Nov 11, 2019 2574
Rick Venturi, former Colts coach, back for the Monday update. Rick Venturi discusses the coaches decision to play Hoyer instead of Jacoby. Rick Venturi also goes into his thoughts on Adam Venturi.
On Colts coaching staff and the quarterback situation:
Rick Venturi: "In this respect, from what I gather, Jacoby took almost all the reps going into the game. If you had the idea that he wasn't gonna play, and I don't think he waited until the last minute, you would've had some idea along the way. You would certainly have gotten Hoyer much more prepared for the game. I'm not one to let the other team know if I'm playing Jacoby or not. I do understand that kind of secrecy to a point, I've never wanted my opponent to know exactly who to get read for. But, they probably had in the back of their mind the whole week, that they weren't going to play him. I think in that respect the preparation, I think Hoyer suffered."
On Adam Vinatieri:
Rick Venturi: "I just can't see why you don't just move on. Don't tell me that there's not somebody out there, that will make more than 8 out of 14 extra points. At some point, I said it last week you can be good, you can continue to be the good guy. You can live in denial, and use all that false confidence. I said, as we ended the show, and you can keep losing football games. We lost another one."

Which Quarterback will we see on Sunday?Nov 8, 2019 994
Matt Taylor joins JMV to look forward to the Colts home game against the Dolphins and who might sit in the quarterback seat.
On playing down to opponents..
“That is what makes last Sunday's game so frustrating because on paper, even with it being on the road, that was a game the Colts should have won and could have won. You can't do that because you didn’t play well because you had three turnovers that cost you 17 points and seven penalties with some of those penalties directly costing some points. If there ever was a game where you would look at again on paper, and I know the games aren’t played like that, this looks like a game that they could get right and win by double figure but at the end of the day we are still playing an NFL team that has talented players.”
On Jacoby Brissett possibility of playing..
“We are going to have to wait to see. He has been limited in practice all week which is a great sign considering it could have been a multitude of things when he went out last week. Certainly it is not season ending and not a long term thing, so long as he doesn’t get reinjured with it, but I would say there is a good chance he plays on Sunday. What we don’t have at practice is guys running at him or guys at his feet. They protect the quarterbacks during practice and they are not running out of the pocket and to me, that is the last piece of the puzzle. I don’t know how cablable he will be when pressure comes his way. There is a lot that goes into it that deals with movement.”
On Brian Hoyer…
“It would not. The Colts do a good job of asking the player, getting him involved, getting the coach involved, and decide what is best for the player and what is best for the team. Again, if Jacoby can’t make all of his movements, the next best option is Brian Hoyer and he is a really good option. We saw what he did last Sunday against the Steelers having not playing with those receivers and tight ends, having not played with those running backs and essentially being a Colt for 8 weeks and not having the experience the preseason with the Colts. He has done a good job of getting up to speed in a short time and gives the Colts a great option to win.”

Should Vinatieri be on the injury report?Nov 7, 2019 1224
Mike Chappell of Fox 59 joins the show this afternoon. Mike Chappell discusses Colts vs. Dolphins game, injury report, who we'll be missing this weekend, and more!
On Jacoby Brissette:
Mike Chappell: "If I'm not mistaken, Frank said, he just couldn't do the lateral things that he needs to do. That's why I go back to saying, if the Colts are convinced that he can do what he needs to do, and he's not ask risk for further injury, he'll play. The fact that Jacoby is out there tells me that they have decided that he can play it at a high enough level without further injury."
On Pierre Desir and Vinatieri:
Mike Chappell: "I don't think he practiced. What they don't want, is have him be 90%, and then he aggravates it. They really wanna give him time to get this thing right. One thing that is interesting, is Vinatieri's talk with the media today. We try to keep asking him about the laces and all that, for him to say the laces matter, mean he's making excuses for missing the kick. He's not been on the injury report, but I'm convinced that left knee has been bothering him."

What Does the Penske Corp. Mean to IMS?Nov 4, 2019 936
Robin Miller joins JMV to take a deeper look into the Hulman family selling IMS to Penske Corp.
On bigger purse at IMS…
“Roger Penske has been in the game as puts his money where his mouth is and I don’t think we could have had a better result than what we had today. The Hulman George family stopped putting money into the Speedway ten years ago so the purse has been stagnant and the IndyCar purses themselves are a joke. If you win a race that is not the Indy 500, you get about 35,000 dollars so I am hoping with Roger Penske’s expertise and with all the people he has met along the way, he will find a marketing genius that is going to sell a title sponsorship to the Indy 500 that will put 10 or 5 million into the purse.”
On Penske family…
“Everyone says the right thing during times like this where everyone will stay in the same place or things like that. I think Greg Penske, his son, will be a major player in this whole deal as far as the day to day activities and what goes on because Greg is a clone of his father. He is a sharp business guy with attention to detail and I don’t Roger is going to come in and just clean house but he will look around and ask a lot of questions. The key is the people he will hire that will stay forever.”
On what to look forward to…
“Look at what he runs. He runs a Ford in NASCAR, he runs a Honda in IMSA, and Chevy in IndyCar racing. You think he has pretty good connections? Ford had said they didn’t want to get back into IndyCar racing but Roger can be pretty persuasive when he has to be. Don’t expect this to be over night - we might not see a real chance for a year or so but give the guy a chance and give him time to put his people in place. He is the smartest guy I have ever met. Period.”
Why do the Colts Play Down to Opponents Level?Nov 4, 2019 2550
Coach Rick Venturi joins JMV to look back at the Colts loss to the Steelers, including two main points of why the Steelers pulled out with the slim win.
On the slim loss…
“This was a huge disappointment. Going in, I respected the Steelers defense but you were looking at a team that was 28th in offense, a quarterback that was ranked 26th, and a team that was down to their third and fourth string running backs. The whole game wasn't a disaster. The numbers on defense were really good but it was the big mistakes, negative plays, and mental breakdowns in critical situations. The Steelers did what they do in they go after the quarterback and take away the ball. The disappointing fact is that we always play down to our opponents level.”
On why the Steelers won…
“With Hoyer, it never felt like it was over. In the three touchdowns coming off the bench was really good but I do think the two key plays of why we lost were: 1. The pick six and 2. The miss on the fourth and four. “
On Adam Vinatieri…
“Every time he steps up to kick it, it is mental. Even some of the ones he makes aren’t pretty. I don’t know what is out there and everyone obviously loves him but at this point in time, it is only that reputation that is keeping him here. There is no way that any other kicker would still be here after missing the way he does… It wasn’t purely clean and if it's a perfect world, you want to spin those laces. You do that without even thinking and if you don’t get them out of there, then it still doesn't change that much. I thought what Frank has brought is a real sense of accountability. I don’t know who would take his spot but maybe it is time to seriously consider something.”
On Brian Hoyer…
“I thought he came in and did a good job. The throw and the catch to pascal, who had a really good game, was placed where it needed to be. I thought for his first throw, again Doyle helped him by doing a good job, he did a good adjustment and had the presence to find the guy down field. I thought overall, he got out of trouble well and like I said, I was happy when they signed him because he was the best of the best of the backup guys. This is a guy who has won a ton of games and thrown a ton of touchdown passes. You can still play your offense with Hoyer - you are not dead in the water.”

Looking back at 20 Years of Bankers Life FieldhouseNov 1, 2019 542
Rick Fuson, Pacers Sports & Entertainment President and Chief Operating Officer joins JMV to look back in the 20 years of Bankers Life Fieldhouse and what new improvements are on its way.
On celebrating 20 years…
“Twenty years ago, on November 6th, we opened this building with a great celebration outside against the Boston Celtics and guess who is coming on November 6th 2019 - the Boston Celtics. We had 3,800 ticketed events over the years with almost 10,000 total events with 40 million people coming in. It is still a happening place and it will be even better when we go through this redo going into fieldhouse two point oh.”
On new additions to fieldhouse…
“We are going to start in the early spring, late winter with raising the practice court and it is going to go to street level so that is it going to be able to be used in different situations. We are changing where the locker rooms are for the Fever and doing different club additions. Ultimately we are going to build a large plaza which is going to be enhanced and take some rows off the top of the balcony to make standing room. This goes to the next generation where people like to stand and watch.We have new concessions and more windows, elevators and more to make sure this place does not have to be torn down.”

Who Needs to Step Up in Absence of Hilton?Nov 1, 2019 651
Matt Taylor joins The Ride with JMV to break down the Hilton injury. Who will step up in place of T.Y.? How will Frank Reich change his lineup? Taylor gives his opinion on who needs to step up in place of Hilton and how the Colts need to learn to win without him.
Colts are Winless Without Hilton. Can They Overcome That?Nov 1, 2019 728
Mike Wells joins JMV to talk about T.Y. Hilton’s injury and what this means for the Colts.
“When you think about it, the fact that Frank Reich came out and routinely he would say ‘week to week’ or ‘day to day’ and he flat out said ‘this type of calf injury that T.Y. is dealing with is a 3 to 4 week injury’ and that is probably at best when he says 3 to 4 weeks. It is not a good situation because this was at a time where the Colts were going to take off and hopefully get a little distance in the AFC race. I know the schedule is still in their favor but nothing is guaranteed anymore. They have never won a game with T.Y. not in the lineup.”
On missing Hilton…
“It puts more pressure on others because when we talked about Zach Pascal being number two, now if that is the case, is he going to be able to step up and be that number one wide receiver. I am not sure about that. There is more pressure on Ebron and Doyle at the tight end spot. We saw Ebron play out wide against Oakland and that is when he had a flat out atrocious football game.”
On Ebron needing to step up…
“That game against Oakland, he had three drops. Although he had a touchdown, when they needed him, he did not step up to the plate and you can not have that happen. The margin of error for the Colts has always been small, but it is even smaller now without Hilton. We know what we are going to get from Doyle, Marlon Mack and the offensive line are going to do their job, but it depends on the Pascals, Ebrons and Cains that are wildcards.”
ATI Physical Therapy answers what might be keeping out some important Colts playersOct 31, 2019 558

What's the scoop with T.Y. Hilton?Oct 31, 2019 761
Mike Chappell of Fox 59 joins the show this afternoon. Mike Chappell discusses T.Y. Hilton, red flags during last Sunday's game, and the Colts vs. Steelers game this weekend.
On T.Y. Hilton:
Mike Chappell: "I head something, and I looked, couldn't find anything. I made a few calls and was told it wasn't anything serious. He did miss practice today. With some of these players I don't have the injury report to give me any insight."
On red flags during last Sunday's game:
Mike Chappell: "No, they're the first team since 1940 to go 5-2 and have all their games decided by 7 points or fewer. All I say is get use to it. I just don't see this team being constructed or the way they do things. I think the Steelers have a good offense and the defense is atrocious."
What is it like to be a comedian in today's world?Oct 31, 2019 959
Bob Saget, stand-up comedian, joins the show this afternoon. Bob Saget discusses his emotions performing for crowds, 2 new shows he's working on, new material and music, and his versatility.
On enjoying performing for crowds:
Bob Saget: "A lot, in the past three years the world sort of shifted. Many people are upset and I just want to make people happy. People have different opinions or different kinds of people, that's all the better. I'm working on new material, but I've also been doing two new TV shows that are coming out. One comes out tomorrow night. I will be doing new material and music at Helium Comedy Club this weekend."
Bob Saget: "I think I should become a woman, and I would become the biggest star of all time. In honesty, I have empathy for everybody, there's real kindness in what I do. In my last special it was ages 0-60, which wasn't that dirty. People said it wasn't dirty enough, and I said this is how I'm growing right now. I'm the only television father you can trust."
What makes Tom Allen such a good fit for the IU football program?Oct 31, 2019 1789
Fred Glass, athletic director at IU, joins the show this afternoon. Fred Glass discusses Nebraska's thoughts on IU, vision on Tom Allen and the football program, impressions of Tom Allen, and views on the athletes receiving profit.
On vision of Tom Allen and the IU football program:
Fred Glass: "At this point I'm not going to dance in the end zone now. We've qualified for 4 bowl games in 26 years, but three of those 4 have been in the last 5 years. We have bigger aspirations than bowl eligibility, but I think constantly going to the bowl would be an important step for this program."
On impression of Tom Allen:
Fred Glass: "I think the way he connects with his players. Those guys believe in him, they believe he cares about them as young men. Number one, that he knows the game and can make them better. That's a powerful combination, if the kids believe that you care about them, and they know that you know what you're doing and can make them powerful."
What is the missing piece from last year for the Pacers?Oct 31, 2019 679
Chris Denari, voice of the Pacers, joins the The Ride with JMV this afternoon. Chris Denari discusses win over Nets, Jeremy Lamb, Myles Turner injury, and what the Pacers need to improve on.
On Myles Turner:
Chris Denari: "When you hear week to week, that worries you just from the standpoint that you don't know when he's going to be back. If it's day to day or game to game then you've got a chance, but if they're saying week to week that means they'll evaluate him at some point next week. He's a guy that wants to be out on the floor, he's battled through injuries before. That's why you try to build as much depth as you can, and that's why it's important to have 2 big guys like Sabonis and Turner then add Bitadze."
On missing piece this year:
Chris Denari: "For me, it's a little hard to judge, just because throughout the first four games you had a lot of moving parts. But I'll say this, we all knew this team wasn't going to be as good defensively as it was a year ago, because you've taken away key players. Just in the short sample size last week, I have seen improvement. Look at T.J. Warren last night diving on the floor, creating an offensive foul, doing things he wasn't asked to do. That is something you have to adapt to, I have a lot of confidence in this coaching staff, that they can improve the defenders."
Is 'Holy My' the new call?Oct 30, 2019 1664

Drew Storen, MLB relief pitcher, joins the show this afternoon. Drew Storen discusses watching former teammates, Stephen Strausberg, how long it takes to learn how to pitch in MLB, and impression on post season run.
On watching former teammates in the world series:
Drew Storen: "I'm definitely rooting for them, because the guys who I played with, are just such incredible teammates and guys. It's easy rooting for them, and hopefully they can pull it off tonight."
Drew Storen: "He's just been incredible all post season. I mean he's one of those guys, that when he's in those big situations, he goes out and dominates. The impressive thing is, that it's not the same Stephen Stausberg you saw at the debut. He had to adapt to his ability to pitch, yes he's not lighting up the radar gun like he use to. But, he's able to throw that breaker ball or that plus change up in any count, and kept those guys off balance."
Are the Colts the kings of old school?Oct 30, 2019 778

Athletes can now profit from name, image, and likeness.Oct 29, 2019 1210
Jeff Rabjohns, of Peegs.com, joins the show this afternoon. Jeff Rabjohns discusses NCAA board of governors and IU football.
On NCAA board of governors:
Jeff Rabjohns: "The NCAA board of governors voted unanimously to recommend to D1, D2, and D3 that they changes their bylaws, to allow players to benefit from their own name, image, and lightness. The board of governors have no power, what so ever, over the actual bylaws of D1, D2, or D3. D1 has it's own governance, the NCAA governs cannot write, propose, or vote for a single bylaw that governs D1."
On IU football season:
Jeff Rabjohns: "This is only the 4th time in program history that they've had 6 wins by October 26th. So, they're already bowl eligible, sitting there at 6-2, with 4 games left to play. Tom Allen, obviously, has done a really good job. Steve Waltho, made the point that not only is IU winning, but 48% of the roster is freshman, and another 20% is sophomores."
Chris Hagan got Colts fans riled up with his Twitter Poll QuestionOct 29, 2019 475
Chris Hagan, from Fox 59, joins the JMV show this afternoon. Chris Hagan discusses his Twitter poll question, and why fans are so upset about it.
Chris Hagan: "Basically, the poll was all me, we are encouraged to engage with the fans. It started with the Colts win, I decided to ask a poll about Andrew Luck."
Jeremiah Johnson discusses the Pacers discombobulated end of game situation.Oct 29, 2019 649
Jeremiah Johnson, from Fox Sports Indiana, joins JMV on today's show. Jeremiah Johnson discusses last night's game, Sabonis, the end of the game, and Myles Turner.
Jeremiah Johnson: "I think you'll some line-ups staggering as we move forward. Domantas Sabonis is a starter, and you're never going to be able to count his scoring as bench scoring. But, I think he's going to play with that second unit a lot, especially in the second quarter. So, you can't just look at the box score when the game is over, and look at the bench scoring and the other team's bench scoring. I do think you're going to see some mixing and some matching to where you either have Sabonis or Myles on the court at all times. They have to be able to play together at the start and to finish, but maybe at the end there aren't a lot of times where they are on the court at the same time. When you do that, I think you have an advantage centered offensively most of the time. You're not having as much of Sabonis run around and guard."
On discombobulated end game situation:
Jeremiah Johnson: "I think if you just go back and look at that final play where there was 2 seconds left there were 3 options left. T.J. Warren coming off the screen, and that was the pass Justin Holiday made. If you wait a second it looked like Brodgon was able to pop to the top of the key, he would've been open. If that's not open, Sabonis could've been open on the post. Everyone will appoint to T.J. Warren coming off the screen, maybe fading away, and that's not the best look to get. But, Coach McMillan can't decide where the ball is passed, and who gets it, all he can do is try to create a few different options."
What Role Did Brissett Play in the Win Over the Broncos?Oct 28, 2019 2684
Coach Rick Venturi joins JMV to look back at the Colts slim victory over the Broncos including who deserves game balls and what the Colts need to fix.
On the close game…
“On any given Sunday - thats for real - everyone has enough talent to beat you. All those wins in the left column count exactly the same. It means every bit as kansas city or houston. We were looking at that heads up. This team does play with a back to their wall mentality. I was worried because they were favorites because a lot of the times, you go in there with a knock them out quickly but our guys hung in there and found a way to win in the fourth quarter. Are we playing with fire or are we just finding a way to win?”
On a game ball going to Brissett...
“You have to give a game ball to Brissett. He bailed us out. That is one of the finest plays we are going to see now and see forever. Under the circumstances, backed up, they were killing us at that point and couldn’t make anything at that point. He was taking it all day long and played tough all day long. All of a sudden he has one of the best pass rushers every that had such a clean shot at him, then it looked like he wrapped up - he gets out of it and throws a strike downfield. That is the play of plays.”
On Broncos defense…
“They dominated the line of scrimmage. I thought our offensive line was the worst in the Frank Reich era. Our backs who did not get 100 yards, ran really hard. Mack made things out of nothing but even then, there was not much production at all. Our reliables did not have a very good game. Dolye had the worst game blocking that he ever had. They turned the edge and we did not do a good job on the running game or the protection. Jacoby did a good job detecting that rush but I thought this was his finest hour although the numbers might not show it. The difference was our defense was able to keep the score down.”

Who has the biggest impact on the Colts?Oct 25, 2019 1591
Mike Wells joins JMV to discuss the health of the Colts roster with Carl Davis being the only player ruled out prior to Sunday's game. How does Colts Defensive Coordinator, Matt Eberflus, divide up the snaps in the secondary? Could the Broncos pull off an upset like the Raiders did four weeks ago?
Can Quenton Nelson be the best player on this team?...
"The three players that have the biggest impact on this roster, in order, I am going to go Quenton Nelson, TY Hilton, Darius Leonard when it comes to three players who have the biggest impact on the team because until Quinton Nelson arrived in Indianapolis, the offensive line was a complete utter joke. But, when he he's able to have that kind of impact that carries over to the other offensive lineman, its paid dividends. I mean you gave up a league low eighteen sacks last season, they're opening up running lanes for Marlon Mack, gibing Jacoby Brissett a pretty clean pocket to work with. I think impact wise, there's no bigger player on this roster than Quenton Nelson.
Do they Colts need to make a trade deadline move?...
"I am not touching this roster. I am keeping things the way they are. Keeping the draft picks, and continuing to bank on these young guys because you are sitting 4-2 right now and I believe going into Houston, they will be AT LEAST 7-3 or 8-2 at best and then you go into December with a really tough schedule. Don't try to rock the boat just rock the boat, because when you bring in a guy during the season in a trade, it takes time for that guy to get into his comfort zone, get comfortable, know his role on the roster and everything so I don't see a need for it."
Are the Colts finally healthy?Oct 25, 2019 767

Mike Chappell: "The Colts are at 3 or 4, point being is I don't know why you wouldn't consider these guys among the top 2 or 3."
Pacers lose first regular season game to Detroit.Oct 24, 2019 811
Chris Denari, voice of the Pacers, joins JMV on today's show. Chris Denari discusses where the Pacers went wrong in the 4th quarter, how they gave up 36 in the 4th, and defensively what they need to change.
On 4th quarter:
Chris Denari: " I thought the key stretch was in the 3rd quarter, when you had that 8-9 point lead. You had a couple of opportunities to take it into double figures. There's always sort of a line there, where if you get it to a certain point, it makes it very difficult on the other team. Even if they make a run, a 5 or 6 point run, you have a cushion. unfortunately for the Pacers that cushion went away. I thought Detroit did a really great job, Kennard had a career night, Andre Drummond tied with the most points he's ever scored. I was just impressed with him, he did some things that we just haven't seen him do. I would give him some credit for helping Detroit with that win."
On giving up 36 in the 4th:
Chris Denari: "I think that's where the trust factor, maybe more so on defense than offense. It's knowing where your teammate is, knowing where that help is coming from, knowing where the hedge is coming from. I mean basically, Kennard got open a number of times on the same exact play, and the Pacers didn't do a very good job on defending it. They had a couple of offensive rebounds, where they kick it out, where they get the defense disoriented."
How does Zach Pascal turn being the underdog into motivation?Oct 24, 2019 592
Zach Pascal, Colts wide receiver, joins JMV this afternoon. Zach Pascal discusses being called an underdog, how he overcomes the bad games, and what drives him.
On being called underdog:
Zach Pascal: "No, it doesn't bother me it just shows the road I had to take to get to where I am. I still am going on that road. It helped me learn about myself, it definitely shows the type of man I am. I'm just blessed and thankful for where I'm at. It's not over, the chip is still on my shoulder, I still have a lot to prove."
On bad games:
Zach Pascal: "I'm always going to remember the bad games or things that I did wrong, just so I won't do it again. As far as the good games, I'll remember for as long as I can remember. But, I don't dwell on it too much."
On what drives Zach:
Zach Pascal: "That last years Patriots game. That was my first start, T.Y. was hurt that week. I had the worst game in my career so far. I used that in the off season as motivation to get my confidence back, continue to drive and push, and be better everyday."
Could the Colts OL be in the top 5?Oct 24, 2019 383
Rick Demulling, former Colts OL, joins the show this afternoon. Rick Demulling discusses Colts OL, when other NFL teams begin to recognize strategies and strengths, thoughts on Jacoby Brissett, and the amount of flags thrown in a game.

Will Malik Hooker Be On the Roster For This Weekend?Oct 23, 2019 1049
Kevin Bowen, Colts and Pacers reporter, joins JMV on today's show. Kevin Bowen gives his opinion on Malik Hooker playing this weekend as well as where he sees the Colts sitting right now.
On Malik Hooker:
Kevin Bowen: "The the fact that he was full on Friday, full participate at practice today, I expect that to continue this week. He actually said yesterday, that he felt he was above 90% before the Houston game. I think when you look at his injury history, you know very well that you have 10-11 regular season games left, you're going to keep him out. I think he will play this weekend."
On Colts Ranking:
Kevin Bowen: "I have them slotted at 2B, New England 1st, I have Baltimore at 2A, and Houston or Kansas City right behind that. I know it's kind of a cop out and I'm being soft, but I would throw Baltimore, Indianapolis, Houston, and Kansas City."

Indy Eleven Hoping For A Little Rain This Weekend.Oct 22, 2019 702
Drew Conner, Indy Eleven player, joins the show this evening. Drew Conner expresses excitement about being able to play outside, and what weather he hopes for this weekend.
On inside to an outside stadium:
Drew Conner: "I mean it's something I'm really excited for, I haven't experienced that stadium first hand, so it's something I'm really looking forward to. Obviously we had a really great home field advantage at Lucas Oil, but you know, we're going to have our fans there so I'm excited for it."
Drew Conner: "We're playing on turf, the ball tends to pop up, it doesn't roll natural like it does on grass. That's something we had a bit of an advantage on when teams would come and play us at Lucas Oil. Some people are under the impression, you have to hit your passes, you have to underweight them; the truth is sometimes you have to hit them a little harder too depending on the type of turf. So, we've been training out there, we're getting use to it. I hope it stays relatively dry, but I wouldn't mind a little bit of rain so the ball will roll nice."

Pacers GM Chad Buchanan Goes Behind the Scenes With JMV About How The Sabonis Extension Played OutOct 22, 2019 873
Pacers general manager, Chad Buchanan, joins JMV on today's show. Chad Buchanan takes us behind the scenes about the extension of Domantas Sabonis. Chad Buchanan also goes into details about the importance of a core group.
On Domantas Sabonis:
Chad Buchanan: "I think at the time he probably was disappointed. I think part of any negotiation, one side starts at one starting point and the other starts a different starting point. You have ups and downs and peeks and valleys during the talks. You catch the one side on the wrong day, and you may sense some disappointment. Some of the quotes you heard from Domas the other day, he's known from the very beginning on how we feel about him. I think this is the first time for him going through this type of situation. Everything was new to him, and I think at the time he was discouraged of where things were going. I think his intention, his agents intention as well as ours, was to find a deal. At the end of the day he was ecstatic, and today you could tell there was a cloud lifted off of him."
On importance of the core group:
Chad Buchanan: "Last year we had a good core group, but the majority of them were on the last year of their contract. So, that creates a dynamic that you gotta manage as a coach. Now, we've got a group of guys that are all in a similar time frame of their career. They're all, for the most part, entering their mid-20s, entering their prime or in their prime of their careers. Justin Holiday is 30, which isn't old, but he's our oldest player in our locker room. We're feeling good with where we're at with our roster, and now it's just has to come together on the court. You've got a lot of new faces that are playing with new guys, and playing for a different coach now. So, it takes some time for that to come together. There's a lot of things that are gonna go into this team, that it may not be as smooth as a transition on the court. But, we're hopeful that it will come together, just because of the talent and the character with the guys in the locker room."

“This was a gateway win”Oct 21, 2019 2661
Coach Rick Venturi joins JMV to break down the AFC win over the Texans, look forward into the schedule, and the impact of defensive changes.
On win over Houston...
“This was a huge win. We talked about the blueprint last monday about what they had to do and they went out and did it. To think we are sitting at 4-2, I think we totally reestablished who we are, and totally reestablished an identity on offense. We have a new identity on defense. To quote coach Reich, the last eight quarters in the last two wins have been confident team wins...It was a really outstanding game. Tactically and physically we are playing at a championship level. In some respects, we were a better team than the score indicates.”
On looking forward to the rest of the season...
“You have to stay in the moment. This is not a league where you are guaranteed a win. I really think that is important because when you look at the team, the Colts have established their identity. They know they have a good offensive line and in the last two weeks, they have reshaped their defense. I can't say enough about what we have done in the last two weeks, both on and off the field. With the combination of Colts, offense, defense and special teams, the sky's the limit. They need to grind it out and never look back.”
On Jacoby Brissett...
He has grown every week. The numbers were there: 326 passing yards, four passing touchdowns and those four touchdowns were in the red zone. It doesn't get better than that. He really is reflective of Frank Reich. He plays with the patience, smartness, and toughness. He has proven that he is a very accurate passer. He will occasionally have a mistake which is not uncommon like his fumble snap but other than that, he makes almost no mistakes. He never puts you in that hole early. The tools are there for him and he can move the chains. He has great mobility… and sometimes his greatness comes from not making that mistake.”
Looking to SectionalsOct 18, 2019 415
Bob Lovell joins the Ride with JMV to break down high school football. The MIC teams are on the uprise with all around solid teams. Sectional matchups have the chance to stir up unexpected results.

How Successful will IU Football and Basketball be this year?Oct 18, 2019 1207
Voice of the Hoosiers, Don Fischer, joins JMV and Chris Hagan to look forward to Indiana vs Maryland game and look into IU basketball. In a very winnable game where the Hoosiers can get to a bowl game and have a winning record, Indiana must prove themselves. Michael Penix Jr. might be at risk of an injury, but his effectiveness has come at a dire point. IU basketball comes in as underdogs but are easily able to overcome that.
Can the Colts Keep Their Momentum Going?Oct 18, 2019 1448
Mike Wells joins JMV and Chris Hagan to preview the upcoming match up between the Indianapolis Colts and the Houston Texans. Is Brissett able to step up? Are injuries still a problem on both sides? Can Ebron find his groove?
Is this a must win?...
“I can’t go with a must win. I can’t go with the must win in this situation. If they do beat the Texans, they will go on a nice run of teams that are not playing well. No Kenny Moore, Pierre Desir is game time, Malik Hooker is doubtful. This offense that the Texans have is one that has pieces all around. They have some running backs and they are able to pass it. With the Houston three top wide receivers, it is going to be a tough matchup for the Colts and I don’t think Brissett is able to get into a high scoring affair...I just think offensively, the Texans are an all around better offensive team.”
Who is in the more dire injury circumstances…
“I’m going to go with the Colts still because the quarterback for Colts still isn’t passing the ball and the reality of it is, who is the Colts number two wide receiver. I think the Colts injury situation considering the way Houston plays is more severe than what Houston is going to have to deal with. The Colts are going to try to run the ball and I think that is a bigger issue than what Houston has on their plate.”
On what Brissett needs to improve on...
“I don’t think Brissett is ever going to beat you. Maybe not beat but he's not going to cost you a game. He is going to make the safe play while Luck would make the dangerous play that sometimes worked. My thing that I want to see out of Brissett is when you fall back 14 or 17 points, Brissett is going to have to lead the Colts back with his arm. At some point, he is going to have to show that he can get the ball down the field in a hurry in the air. That is the one question mark I am waiting to see out of Brissett.”
How Defensive Backs were Key to win at Kansas CityOct 18, 2019 478
Bobby Okereke, Colts linebacker, joins JMV to talk about his rookie year so far and what the Colts need to continue to do to improve.
On transition from college to NFL…
“It has been a huge learning process. Coming in with guys like Darius and Anthony in the room, learning from our linebacker coach, getting acclimated to the way coach Reich runs our program and system - it’s been a great process… Darius was hurt the last couple of games and the reps I got playing slowed the game down even at a faster rate.”
On practice energy...
“In the linebacker group, we do a really good job of competing with each other and pushing each other while also coaching each other. Anthony Walker has been a huge help to me and he is a smart guy who understands the game well. The biggest thing for me so far is getting my eyes in the right place. I am physical and long so coach told me if I work on my eyes, I will be a good linebacker.”
Keys to carry over from Kansas City game to Houston…
“Stopping the run and making them one dimensional was the key. I think we did a good job of that and held them to about 36 rushing yards the whole game. We tried to keep Patrick Mahomes in the pocket and you saw what happened when we let him out of the pocket: he had that big third down touchdown. We forced them to throw the ball downfield and our defensive backs played really well in man to man and did a tremendous job.”

Can the Astros take home another series?Oct 17, 2019 839
John McClain of Houston Chronical's, joins the show this afternoon. John McClain discusses Astros and whose win was more impressive, Texans or Colts over Chiefs. He also compares Texans and Colts OL's. Will the Colts take the W for a chance to sit in the #2 spot?
On Astros winning another series:
John McClain: "Well, I've got to be honest with some words that are fighting words, those 2 Rocket teams won back to back championships. Before and after there championships, the Bulls won, those two years Michael Jordan quit basketball. So, they didn't have to beat Michael Jordan. When they won the World Series here in 2017, they had to beat the Red Sox, Yankees, and Dodges. Considering where they came from, where they lost more than 100 three years in a row, I would say this is more impressive."
On Texans or Colts Win Over Chiefs:
John McClain: "Well, the Texans scored more points. What was impressive, we thought the Colts controlled the ball well. The Texans came and controlled the ball for 39 minutes 48 seconds. Until the Colts can prove that they can stop somebody, that's going to be the MO of other teams."
Who had the most impressive win over the Chiefs, Colts or Texans?Oct 17, 2019 1326

Do the Colts have to beat the Texans this Sunday to have a chance at winning the AFC South?Oct 16, 2019 1340
Kevin Bowen, Colts reporter, joins the show this afternoon discussing the upcoming Colts vs. Texans game. Kevin Bowen discusses what to expect from the Texans, if this is a must win for the Colts, and an update on Colts injuries.
On Colts vs. Texans:
Kevin Bowen: "I mean, if you want to win the division, this is about as close to a must win game that you're going to get in week 7. I know you're a Mr. Must Win, and I believe you deemed just about every Colts game, at some point, a bit of a must win over the past few years. I actually do agree with your line of thinking for a week 7 game, considering how the division looks, and considering how the AFC looks. The Colts are 7th right now in the AFC, they're actually on the outside looking in of the current playoff picture. But, if they win on Sunday, and Baltimore looses to Seattle, I'm almost positive they would climb up to the #2 spot."
Kevin Bowen: "I think if you're making an MVP list after 6 weeks, I think Deshaun Watson has got to be on it somewhere. I think he's definitely been one of the top 5 players in the NFL this season. Yes, that offensive line is starting to jell together a little bit more, they haven't allowed a sack the last two weeks. Now, the right tackle, Tytus Howard, did get hurt in their win over Kansas City and he will be out. I think what stands out to me about Houston, and you go back and look at last years match ups, the Colts beat Houston in December and again in January, no Will Fuller in either of those games or Keke Coutee."
Can Indy Eleven Take Down Swope Park Rangers?Oct 16, 2019 577

Where Will This Seasons Rookies Take The Pacers?Oct 16, 2019 631
Chris Denari, voice of the Pacers, joins this afternoons show. Chris Denari speaks highly of Goga Bitadze and Michael Brogdon, and what standard he holds the Pacers at.
On Goga Bitadze:
Chris Denari: "It was fun to watch him. He's been a pro since he was 15 so, even though he's only just turned 20 and new to the NBA, he's not new to professional basketball. It will take him time to get use to the NBA, but I thought for night 1, he showed himself very well. He shot the ball well, did some good things, yea he had 6 turn overs, but for a guy that played his first NBA game last night he performed well. He is a fan favorite, there's question that when Goga is on the floor the fans go wild."
On Pacer Rookies:
Chris Denari: "Well I still think the real key is Michael Brogdon, because I think he makes the rest of his teammates so much better. Watching him in game 1, in the comeback against Sacramento, when he had 15 points and 14 assists. He is 6'5", he's got some size, and he's a very willing passer. He makes the pass that you like to see from players, it's the pass that the defender is not expecting. He makes a lot of skip passes to the corner, he finds open men, and I think he has triggered a very unselfish starting unit. They all know they can score, they all have an offensive mentality, but they're all more than willing to make the extra pass."
Who Will Step Up, Out Of The Rookies, To Lead The Defenders?Oct 15, 2019 1504
Stephen Holder, from The Athletic, joins the show this afternoon beginning a discussion with an umbrella over the entire league.

11th Inning Excitement in OctoberOct 14, 2019 492
Tucker Barnhart, the catcher for the Reds, joins JMV to discuss the MLB playoffs.
On Astros win over the Yankees...
“The guy [Carlos Correa] won a postseason game with a walk off home run in the 11th inning in a must win game for them. I give him all kinds of credit for taking that pitch and driving it out of the park. In game two when you have a one game lead, then I thought the leash was a little bit shorter than I would have thought but the bullpen pitched well and it ended up in the 11th.”
On Nationals and Cardinals...
“I would say its the Nationals stepping up but I believe in the baseball gods so I wouldn’t be surprised if there was a little bit of that here too. I think the National starting pitching staff is unbelievable. They have a tough match up tonight with Stephen Strasburg on the mound who has been better in the postseason than he has in the regular season.”
Rick Venturi’s Keys to Beating HoustonOct 14, 2019 2410
Coach Rick Venturi joins JMV to break down the use of the Colts bye week, the keys to beating the Texans and the importance of the upcoming games
On the upcoming game against Houston...
“This is a huge game. I know Frank talks about 1-0 but I would say this is a roman numeral one. These two teams are clearly the best two teams in the division. The QB is a challenge. He's been terrific, although he was an elevator before being up and down but this is a big one. This is almost like one and a half for Frank. This is a better Houston team than we played in the playoffs. It's taken them a while with Watson to connect but now they have found a rhythm and balance with what he can do without killing him.”
On the bye week...
“The bye week, while you normally don’t want it early in the season or after a big win, will be different. It may help us here. Houston had to spend themselves for the past two weeks. Sunday was a come from behind fight to the end where they all had to put in. It was a great win mentally. We will be coming in the fresher team. This is one that will be exciting to watch.”
Importance on the Texans game…
“This is a game and a half. We own these guys in the playoffs, we've played two tight games against them. I do think this is a better team where their offensive line is not as of a liability as it was. We held the ball for 37 mins while they held it for 39 mins, which is why Kansas can’t win. Their quarterback creates more gaps in the defense and can make all the throws - what he does best is play action deep balls. They are going to be battling all year long and the Colts don’t want them to get to 5 and 2.”
"This is a team that is going to be ready for the playoffs."Oct 14, 2019 642
JMV is out tomorrow so who else other than Jeffrey Gorman to take his place. Gorman is hopeful for the Colts this season as well as previewing what he might have in store for tomorrows show.
Is IU a Bowl Contender Once Again?Oct 11, 2019 975
Don Fishcher, the voice of the Indiana Hoosier, joins Jeremiah Johnson and Chris Denari to look into the IU football game including defense, the quarterback position and team mentality.
On Indiana being bowl eligible...
“This football team is going into a four game stretch which is probably the most critical to their season without question. They are already three wins into it with two losses. The loss to Michigan State was disappointing, there is no question about that, because it shows Indiana still struggles to finish out football games. It’s been over twenty years now where we see teams that just can’t seem to finish in games like that, but hopefully this team can rev up because it is pivotal for going back to a bowl game.”
On opponent Rutgers...
“You have little doubt that Rutgers is a team in disarray. They lost last week under a new interim head coach, to a Maryland team that has been struggling for quite some weeks now. The difference is that in this ball game, Rutgers will at least have a little bit better feel for what the new coach can bring into this game offensively and that is where his strength is. He was a running back coach and a tight end coach in his two years at Rutgers and prior to that he was the head coach of the powerful program called Bergen in the state of New Jersey. He has some background that is a little bit different than the former offensive coordinator.”
Leveling the Playing Field of High School FootballOct 11, 2019 827
Chris Denari and Jeremiah Johnson are joined by Bob Lovell to talk high school football and how it is growing to be more competitive throughout
On dominant high school teams...
“Avon is playing well, Brownsburg is having a good year, North Central has a match up with Pike tonight, Ben Davis is starting to play a little bit better but all in all, it's interesting because there is no clear cut favorite. There are some good teams but I don’t think you have the clear cut dominant team.”
Is the gap closing between the best conferences?....
“I think it is. I think it’s understandable because you look around and you start to pay a little more attention, put more emphasis on not losing. Coaches are working harder and resources are getting better. I think when you raise the bar, people will raise it with you and that's what is happening in the central Indiana area. Things are just getting better and better because people love to go out on a Friday night. Crowds are huge, everything is great and you don’t want to be one of those programs that is not mentioned.”
Fresh Faces of the BullsOct 11, 2019 595
Chris Denari and Jeremiah Johnson fill in for JVM and talk to Chuck Swirsky, the Bulls radio play by play, to break down the Pacers and Bulls preseason game
On the new Chicago Bulls...
“There are a lot of new faces with this ball club, as every team can say in the NBA, some more than others. New Orleans has 14, believe it or not, new faces on their club. What I think the coach of the Bulls is trying to do now is really develop his bench and find out a little about his ball club and will probably go back to most of his starters against the Raptors.”
On Thadius Young in Chicago…
“My initial observations are with him in the locker room, you have to have more than one voice, and that voice, if it's going to be strong, has to come from credibility and that is Young. I don’t know him as well as you know him as Im just trying to get to know him at this point, but obviously I’ve called many games when he's been playing. The bottom line is that he knows what he is doing - on the court and off the court - he is a very durable player. He players have instant respect for him.”

Will the Colts Keep the Energy Coming Back From This Break?Oct 10, 2019 752
Mike Chappell joins the JMV show discussing the Colts vs. Chiefs game last Sunday. The Colts definitely deserved this week off after beating the Chiefs. But, after this weekends celebrations, will they keep the same energy they brought into Sunday's game? Mike Chappell explains more in detail that it's all about taking care of business.
On Kansas City:
Mike Chappell: "I didn't see it coming, I thought the offense played well, I never that the defense could do this. It was pretty surprising I thought."
Can the Nationals Win it All?Oct 10, 2019 596
Tucker Barnhart joins the show today giving thoughts on the MLB post season as well as what he defines as a rival.
On Cardinals being a rival:
Tucker Barnhart: "I think anytime that you a division team, you play them so many times, that there becomes guys that rub you the wrong way that I'm sure are great guys. But, for the most part, the way that I watch the game and the way that I watch the postseason and Cardinals, it's tough to say being a Red and the history between rivals. Yadier Molina has been the best to me, a couple years ago when I won the gold glove, he was one of the first people to text me and congratulate me. So, I watch it based on relationships, I wanted the Braves to win that series solely because of Adam Duvall and Billy Hamilton. Billy, a guy that I would do anything for and I would like to think he would do the same for me. We signed together in 2009, he's like a brother to me. Adam, I got to play with a couple of years, our wives are really close. I watch it based on relationships."
Tucker Barnhart: "It's been interesting to watch, they were really confident in what they had especially in their minor league system this year. Victor Robles came up this year, he's played a lot of center field, electric on the bases and the outfield. He kind of took over Bryce Harper's spot, because they have Adam Eaton in right and Juan Soto in left. I know going into the Dodgers series, a lot of people, late in the season kind of tabbed the Nationals as the team that may give the Dodgers the best run at knocking them out of the postseason."
For more on MLB postseason tune into the JMV show weekday's 3-6 p.m.

Was Sunday's Win For The Colts A Turning Point?Oct 7, 2019 2742
Rick Venturi joins JMV to discuss the 3 major plays of the game.
On 3 biggest plays from the game:
Rick Venturi: "I thought there were 3 magnificent plays individually in the game that made the difference. I thought Odum's strip #1, I think without that play it could be different. I think the blitz sack by Kenny Moore, I think that changed the game, because that really shook Mahomes. You could see it on television, all the sudden those bright eyes, those big wide eyes, they looked a little different. There was a sequence there after Kenny's sack, I think 2 plays later Autry hits him right down the sternum and just shakes him up. Then, Turay comes in and just messes that ankle up, because he just turns everybody down. I thought Mahomes looked worn out after that. But, I mean those were some great things, 4 sacks, no questions about it."

Particularly with the deep stuff and play action I would approach it a little bit different. Now what you want to get in the end is a decisive, compact, and accurate game by him. Now to get that, this is where I think he's looked the best in camp and the preseason games. First of all, you want a quick rhythm passing game with him (Brissett), you want to win on 1st and 2nd down and I think you want to move him because he's really good with his legs, bootlegs and I think you can run the zone-read a little bit more with him than you would Andrew (Luck) and I think he's ready for it."

JMV - "What do you think of both sides of this thing?"
RIck Venturi - "Yea, well, first of all, you talk about a bizarre evening. All I can say is, and looking back on it, we started the game with a tribute and cheering for Chuck Pagano and ended the night with a booing of Andrew Luck. That’s a heck of a three hour feat right there to do that. My take on it is that what we say, and we’ve seen it coming, is really, and I’m not a professional but I know athletes, I know sports, and I know pressure. To me this was a psychological meltdown so to speak. The injuries and the cumulative injuries over time have something to do with it. Last year, though, was a great year. I mean it was fun and he basically was clean and went to the pro bowl and all of that for years. Just remember Brady had a serious ACL. Marino serious ACL. Brees had what they thought was a career ending shoulder. Peyton played after a broken neck. It isn’t like this doesn’t happen. It isn’t like you’re injury free. This is a sport that’s what happens."
