Episode 120 - 2015 Retrospective with Jason Galloway

2015 was a weird season. There's no way of getting around that. But with that in mind Rich (flying solo this episode) tries to make sense of the year that was with Jason Galloway of Madison.com. He gives his take on the career arc of Joel Stave, the division of labor on the Badger coaching staff, and how he grades out Year 1 of Paul Chryst.
