Jesse Temple makes his long awaited return to the BuckAround to break down the details of fall camp. Rich and Max ask about the emergence of the freshmen at wide receiver, depth at the linebacker position, bask in Rich's brilliant and unwavering support of Reggie Love as a viable receiving option for the Badgers (guess who writes this), and even learn Jesse's secrets to being the most well dressed writer on the Wisconsin football beat.
After a lesson on the pronunciation of his name from freshman kicker Rafael Gaglianone, Rich and Max analyze the Badgers as they approach the midpoint of fall camp. They discuss the lack of the depth on the offensive line, the changing cast at safety, and Rich's "Marquis Mason," the emerging Reggie Love. Oh yes, they say a little something about the quarterbacks, too.
The Forgotten Man - Zach Heilprin interviews Reggie Love
With just two B1G teams on the Badgers' schedule yet to be discussed, Mark Primiano of The Champaign Room joins the BuckAround to give us a preview of Illinois in Tim Beckman's 3rd year. Not to limit the conversation to the Illini, Mark's interview is bookended with a discussion of B1G Media day at the start of the show and closes with an exercise on who will be catching balls for the Badgers this year. SPOILER: that last part isn't pretty. Ugh.
Our Receivers "Worksheet":
With Max back, he and Rich talk through Rich's Stave Injury worries, review Wisconsin's monster recruiting weekend, give their thoughts on Gary Andersen as a recruiter in general, and name their 5 most important Badgers for 2014.
In the latest installment of our B1G Picture series, Philip Rossman-Reich of Lake the Posts joins the BuckAround to talk all things Northwestern. Philip does his best to forget the disappointment of 2013, talks about Venric Mark in an offense without Kain Colter, and if Northwestern has a shot to surprise people this year.
