Making his annual spring practice pilgrimage to the BuckAround, B5Q's Luke Mueller joins the podcast to give Rich and Max an update on what he's seeing with Paul Chryst's Badgers this spring.  He breaks down the progression of the quarterbacks, if Dare Ogunbowale can be the #2 running back, and what the new faces at inside linebacker bring to the table.  He even finds time to give some hot punting takes!

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.  

 

Episode 50 - Week 10: Rich Does Rutgers

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. 

 

Episode 48 - The Xs & Os of the Badgers Defense with Space Coyote

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.
