Wrapping up what they started last week, Rich and Max take a stab at projecting the 2015 defense. They look at some of the new starters at defensive line and linebacker and agree that the secondary looks very crowded with the potential additions of Tanner McEvoy and Natrell Jamerson, but first take time to examine the significance of how the John Settle hire was rolled out.
After a record shattering performance against Bowling Green, Rich and Max breakdown the highlights - and significant lowlights - of the blowout victory. They talk about Melvin Gordon's triumphant day, the importance of Dare Ogunbowale's emergence at running back, the impressive showing by the defense, and even find time to dissect Max's drunken tweets, play some message board trivia, and discuss the finer points of knitting a purse during a football game. As always, it's an action packed and informative show.
Message Board Trivia challenge:
Below are four statements. Three of these were actually made on message boards; one was made up. Reply in the comments with your guess as to which one is the false one. The winners get our never ending respect.:
- Bart Houston is the type of QB who would just thrive if thrown into the spotlight. Probably the best pure passer on the roster, no fear.
Anyone else a bit disappointed in what we are seeing from Clement so far?
Dare should get 10 touches a game, he shows more explosiveness than Clement.
McEvoy is like Pryor, miller types in that he can throw enough to be a very good qb.
Rich and Max are joined by Luke Mueller of Bucky's 5th Quarter who provides his take on what he's seen and heard so far in camp. Luke talks the offense, defense, and players who may surprise this year.
With Spring Practice only days away Rich & Max tackle some of the less discussed aspects of spring practice (what does Michael Trotter's playing time tell us about the future of Badger football) as well as some of the bigger topics as well but not before spending way too much time breaking down the relative merits of the month of March.
