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.
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!
The Badgers can't go to the B1G Championship game without a preview show, can they? Rich and Max are joined by Matt Brown of Land Grant Holy Land to break down the Badgers' opponent in Indianapolis - the Ohio State Buckeyes. They talk about the Buckeyes offense in a post-J.T. Barrett world, what OSU needs to do to stop Melvin Gordon, and the path to victory for both teams in Saturday's competition. They wrap things up talking about the coaching search at Nebraska.
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.
