Buckle up people because it's officially here! The doldrums of the pre-spring practice off season has arrived and Rich and Max have officially set sail for conjecture land with their depth chart projections for the 2015 season. With a striking amount of agreement between them they are able to put together a consolidated depth chart for the two of them while still finding time to discuss killer whales, arm wrestling, and Billy Dee Williams
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?
Given the upheaval at quarterback following the Northwestern loss, a 2nd episode of the BuckAround was inevitable this week. Rich and Max dive headfirst into the controversy, trying to discern where the choaches are looking to take the program through the remainder of the '14 season and into the future. They look at McEvoy's future in the offense, if Bart Houston is a viable option as a replacement, and finish the show examining how the Badgers ended up with such a shortage of talent at wide receiver and quarterback. Controversy always makes for a good podcast!
With Spring Practice only days away Rich & Max tackle some of the less discussed aspects of spring practice (what does Michael Trotter's playing time tell us about the future of Badger football) as well as some of the bigger topics as well but not before spending way too much time breaking down the relative merits of the month of March.
Rich and Max boldly predict personnel assignments on the 2014 Wisconsin Badgers offense, remark on the ridiculous number of safeties on the roster, and comment on uncomfortably named winter storms.
