You know how it goes on The Dan Dakich Show.

We had ourselves another MONSTER on Thursday afternoon. Some of our best conversations happen when everybody is around the mics in studio.

And today we didn’t just have anybody. We had THE COACH. Indiana Football Hoosiers head man Tom Allen dropped by with Big Ten Media Day in town for a great conversation with DD.

Tom Allen is the type of guy you want to run through a brick wall for. He also gives a very firm handshake.

But in all seriousness, Coach was fantastic.

From discussing the health of his son Thomas Allen as well as Michael Penix Jr, to scheduling and expectations in the Big Ten, getting ESPN’s College Gameday back on campus, and what the stars of the roster may contribute this year, we had it all. Coach even touched on the new Name, Image, Likeness (NIL) rules and how that will change things for years to come.

“It all goes back to getting guys to buy in,” Allen said. “Every locker room is a bit different. And our guys realize that if they buy in, they’re going to get their opportunity. And when they get it, they must make the most of it.”

September 4 at 3:30 PM in Iowa City can’t come soon enough.

Hoosiers and Hawkeyes getting together again. Get yourself juiced up with Coach Allen and DD.
