Returning from their post signing day hiatus, Rich and Max are joined by Travis Wilson of Wisconsin Sports Network on the podcast to learn more about the dynamics of football in the state of Wisconsin. Afterwards Rich and Max discuss the significance of the departure of Thomas Brown and what the potential hire of John Settle means for the future of Badger football.
Let's be honest. You aren't reading this. You don't even care what's here. What you care about is what's INSIDE this podcast. It's the pure buttery goodness of Evan Flood's recruiting knowledge. And there is a LOT of it in this epsiode. Enjoy!
With Signing Day just around the corner, Rich and Max take a look at Chryst's first few weeks as a recruiter in Madison, what Gary Andersen and Sam Madden's comments about Wisconsin academic standards mean in the bigger picture, and finally - FINALLY - close out the 2014 season with the 2014 Golden Bucky awards.
Rich and Max are joined by Kyle Kafentzis - father of 2015 QB commit Austin Kafentzis and long time high school football coach - to discuss Gary Andersen as a coach, recruiter, and developer of talent. With a decade of coaching experience in Utah, Kyle has seen Andersen through the years as an assistant under both Urban Meyer and Kyle Whittingham as well as his time as a head coach at Utah State. Kyle tells us what separates Gary from his head coaching peers in Utah, what's wrong with the Elite 11 competition, and what Andersen saw in his son that made him the first quarterback offered in the 2015 class. A really unique perspective on the coach and football program.
With Max back, he and Rich talk through Rich's Stave Injury worries, review Wisconsin's monster recruiting weekend, give their thoughts on Gary Andersen as a recruiter in general, and name their 5 most important Badgers for 2014.
