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!
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 relive the glory that was the Badgers' 52-7 trouncing of Maryland. They look at the multitudes of positives in all three phases of play while still finding time to discuss moving, Max's odd use of the word certain verbiage, and Rich's big plans for the Rutgers game this coming week. It's a LONG show, but tons to talk about!
With Rich rolling solo this week, Logan Larson - better known as the Space Coyote - makes his long awaited second appearance on the BuckAround to examine the Badgers on the defensive side of the ball. He focuses on the strengths and weaknesses of a youthful but athletic defensive line, how the Badgers compensate for a lot of smaller bodies playing at linebacker, and whether or not we are being fair in saying Sojourn Shelton has had a disappointing year thus far. Logan's first visit over the summer was one of the most popular and his return will not disappoint.
Coming off a solid performance against the Western Illinois Leathernecks, Rich and Max delve into the finer points of the Badgers' 37-3 victory. They gauge the progress Tanner McEvoy has made as a passer, evaluate Alex Erickson as a receiver, and even sing the praises of the defense. They even find time for listener mail and play some user submitted feedback from a very special listener!
After breaking down the offense last week, Max and Rich delve into the far more uncertain defense, explore the options at kicker, and Rich struggles to pronounce 'Serge Trezy' while Max's references to 80's movie franchises make us both sound old.
