In the latest installment of our B1G Picture series, Philip Rossman-Reich of Lake the Posts joins the BuckAround to talk all things Northwestern. Philip does his best to forget the disappointment of 2013, talks about Venric Mark in an offense without Kain Colter, and if Northwestern has a shot to surprise people this year. With Max away this week, Rich tackles some Badger news including some interesting quotes surrounding Joel Stave's shoulder injury.
Evan Flood makes his long-awaited return to the BuckAround to give a summer update on Wisconsin recruiting. He talks about the Badgers' recruiting success in Texas, positive steps in Michigan, the staff's efforts to find hidden gems in far away places, and even answers listener questions. It's a jam packed show that even includes a breakdown of Nick Saban's love of watersports.
For listeners, below is a link to the greatest video clip in the history of watersports:
Taking a break from guests, Rich and Max discuss James Franklin's perceived assault on the SEC heartland, Jordan Scarlett's interest in the Badgers, and take a wide angle view of the B1G West division. Most importantly, we even find time to dispense a little fashion advice.
Joined by Brandon Cavanaugh of HuskerCorner.com, Rich and Max take a look at the other preseason favorite for the West Division Crown. They talk Nebraska's offense post-Taylor Martinez, the Randy Gregory-lead defense, and the importance of proper syllable emphasis when talking about supporters of Bo Pelini (BO-lievers vs. bo-LEAVERS...just listen). It's definitely an interesting conversation about an interesting team.
Marc Morehouse, Iowa sportswriter for the Cedar Rapids Gazette, is the latest contributor to The B1G Picture series as he joins the BuckAround to talk all things Hawkeye football. He paints a picture of a team that looks to be on the rise in the reorganized B1G, and a legitimate contender for the West division crown. He talks depth on the offense, strength on the defensive line, and Kirk Ferentz's undying love of punting.
