E96: Colts X-Factor, Brickyard weekend, Remembering Bill Russell

We have breaking (Monday) news about Deshaun Watson,¬† happy news about some Colts’ standouts in training camp and a successful NASCAR/IndyCar doubleheader weekend (at least in 2022 terms), and also some sad news to discuss with the passing of one of the greatest champions in American sports. Here’s a rundown of another jam-packed edition of […]

“We Were The Champions” in Indy Monthly

My first published article, an oral history of Indy’s Super Bowl XLVI, is in the latest issue of Indianapolis Monthly and posted on their website. It may sound ridiculous, but one of my career goals was always to published. I know it’s 2022 and the idea of “published” is kind of an antiquated one when […]

Indy Monthly: Schultz on Slick

Attempting to put into words the magnitude of Slick Leonard’s legacy in Indiana was an impossible task, but I tried my best in this latest piece for¬†Indianapolis Monthly. While many have focused on his on-court accomplishments – there are many – I think what made Leonard’s connection with Indiana so special was the fact that […]

Schultz on Woodson Hire

I gave my take on Indiana’s hire of Mike Woodson in my latest piece for Indianapolis Monthly: TL;DR – I was kind of “meh” about hiring an IU guy, but considering where Indiana is, they have nothing to lose… and Woodson is easily the most qualified of the guys with Indiana ties.

Schultz on Carson Wentz for Indy Monthly

Hey, I wrote some more stuff for Indianapolis Monthly! In the wake of the anticipated Carson Wentz deal, I put this together to give my take on what his impact will be. Despite some extreme reactions on either side of the spectrum (“MVP!” to “he’s done!”), my belief is that his tenure here will fall […]

Schultz Writes About Matt Painter

After starting a new job with ISC Sports Network in December, and the normal holiday happenings, I had been dragging my feet on getting a new submission out there for Indianapolis Monthly. I started contributing for them at the beginning of the football season and wrote about myself (my favorite topic), the Anvil (second favorite), […]

The IU Football Fan Experience

With undefeated Indiana set to face #3 Ohio State, I reached out to a few of the Hoosier football fan diehards that I know (there aren’t many) to get their perspective on the program’s turnaround. Indiana, long a punchline, made progress with a solid 8-5 campaign in 2019, but is so far making history this […]

Colts-Titans Indy Monthly recap

I’ve had a lot of fun participating in these Colts’ game recaps with Indianapolis Monthly. While I find All-22 film reviews and real, in-depth analysis interesting, I think it’s fun to take a funny, non-serious look at each game – kind of like a conversation with your friends over beers (or Zimas!). Last night, I […]

The Story Behind the Colts Anvil

As many of you know, I recently became a contributor for Indianapolis Monthly. Writing has always been something I’ve enjoyed, so I’m really excited about getting a chance to “write whenever you feel like it” (direct quote from my IM editors). For my second piece, I wanted to focus on the phenomenon that is The […]

Colts-Bears Recap on Indy Monthly

As you may know, I recently became a contributor to Indianapolis Monthly. So far, the posts have been semi-frequent, but I’ve been helping weekly in a “roundtable” discussion after each Colts game with editors Michael Rubino and Derek Robertson. We always have fun with it – and find completely random pop culture references to shoehorn […]
