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?
Rich and Max sift through the still smoldering embers of the Northwestern game and try to answer the burning questions surrounding UW's offense, specifically a seeming QB controversy and just what's with this offensive line.

Message Board Trivia challenge:
Below are four statements. Three of these were actually made on message boards; one was made up. Reply in the comments with your guess as to which one is the false one. The winners get our never ending respect.:
- Bart Houston is the type of QB who would just thrive if thrown into the spotlight. Probably the best pure passer on the roster, no fear.
Anyone else a bit disappointed in what we are seeing from Clement so far?
Dare should get 10 touches a game, he shows more explosiveness than Clement.
McEvoy is like Pryor, miller types in that he can throw enough to be a very good qb.
