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.
Despite an historic, record breaking performance from Melvin Gordon - and a lively discussion of Gordon's place in Badger history - Rich and Max come away from the Badger win with almost as many questions as they went into the game with. While the defense seemed to answer most questions, what looked to be an underwhelming performance by Nebraska left everyone a little unsure of just how much could be taken from the Badger win. After looking ahead to the Badgers' opponents in the home stretch of the West division race, Max and Rich speculate on what it would be like to date Bo Pelini's daughter.
Rich and Max try not to take too much from the Badgers' 34-16 victory over Purdue, but just can't help it, especially when it come to the quarterbacks and the salty defense. They also offer their thoughts on "Freedom" and roll out the latest from JSComments. This week's show went a little long, but it wraps up with an intriguing suprise at the end. Everyone likes surprises, right?
