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.
The long promised interview is finally here! Rich and Max are joined by Paul Zeise, sports writer for the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette and father of Pitt wide receiver Elijah Zeise, to disect Paul Chryst's tenure at Pitt. Paul explains the situation on the team when Chryst arrived in Pittsburgh, where he excelled, where he needs to improve in Madison, and what the coach was like during the recruitment of his son. Paul brings a unqiue perspective to the new man in charge that is a must listen for any Badger fan.
With the dust finally starting to settle surrounding the coaching change, Rich and Max catch up with official Friend of the Show (his words, not ours) Jesse Temple to reflect on the 2014 season. Jesse gives his thoughts on the staff's handling of the quarterback situation, why Rich was so wrong about Marcus Trotter place in Dave Aranda's defense, and of course no visit from Jesse is complete without some fashion talk. There is something for everyone!
Hot on the heels of the official announcement of the balance of Paul Chryst's first staff as Wisconsin head coach, Rich and Max give their thoughts on the confirmed hires to date, examine the larger implications of the national title game for the B1G, and announce the winners of the 2013 Prop Bet Competition. Hint: the most handsome host of the BuckAround wins!
