Returning from a wet and miserable day in Piscataway, Rich gives his take as a visiting fan to High Point Solutions Stadium. Continuing on the misery theme, Rich and Max talk about the Badgers quarterback play as well but balance that out with some big complements for the defense and special teams. The show is rounded out with a short preview of the Purdue game in the coming week.
With Rich rolling solo this week, Logan Larson - better known as the Space Coyote - makes his long awaited second appearance on the BuckAround to examine the Badgers on the defensive side of the ball. He focuses on the strengths and weaknesses of a youthful but athletic defensive line, how the Badgers compensate for a lot of smaller bodies playing at linebacker, and whether or not we are being fair in saying Sojourn Shelton has had a disappointing year thus far. Logan's first visit over the summer was one of the most popular and his return will not disappoint.
Rich and Max sift through the still smoldering embers of the Northwestern game and try to answer the burning questions surrounding UW's offense, specifically a seeming QB controversy and just what's with this offensive line. Also, was the defense really THAT bad? Also, the first winners of the @JSComments message board trivia contest are revealed!
Dissecting the Badgers final game on the non-conference slate, Rich and Max break down Wisconsin's 27-10 win over South Florida. They look at how Melvin Gordon largely look over the game in the 2nd half, how the offensive line took a step back this week, and compare Tanner McEvoy to Badger quarterbacks since the beginning of the Alvarez Era in Madison. They even find time to reveal the identity behind the @JSComments twitter feed.
DON'T FORGET TO ENTER THE MESSAGE BOARD TRIVIA CONTEST THIS WEEK!
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.
