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.
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.
