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!
The Badgers won their first bowl game in the last five tries, and Rich and Max couldn't be happier. They wax poetically on the final performance of Melvin Gordon in a Badger uniform, the strong showing from the offensive line, the not so strong showing by Joel Stave, and finish out the season with a tiebreaking Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel comments contest. Oh, and it looks like the original show title was taken; hopefully this one will suffice.
Because they are gluttons for punishment (and you are too for listening), Rich and Max spend way too much time breaking Wisconsin's stunning 59-0 defeat at the hands of the Ohio State Buckeyes in the B1G Championship Game. They look at why the defense was basically powerless to stop Ohio State's spread attack, why the offense couldn't move the ball on the ground or through the air, and finally devote some time to the Outback Steakhouse menu. Cheer up people, there is one game left!
Off a 34-24 come from behind victory over arch-rival Minnesota, Rich and Max analyze what the 10th victory of the season means for the Badgers. They examine the team's ability to come back from an early 17-3 deficit, the adjustments made on both sides of the ball in the 2nd half, deal with a very challenging Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel comment contest, and cautiously deal with the thoughts of, shall we say, a very devoted fan.
Rich and Max examine the Badgers 26-24 victory at Iowa this past week. They discuss the importance of putting Joel Stave's performance in full context, if Melvin Gordon had a "Heisman Moment", and why the defense struggled in the 2nd half. They also celebrate the show's growing popularity while reviewing how not to sound like a stalker when sending the show audio feedback.
