Episode 37 - Buck-A-ROUNDTABLE

The season opener is just days away!  To get everyone to share their own thoughts on the season, we thought we'd bring back something we started back when this site was just a blog: Badger Prop Bets.  

This week we brought along some "friends of the podcast" to take a shot at the competition.  Below are a dozen prop bets (and one tiebreaker) that we thought touched on major themes, story lines, and unanswered questions about the Badgers.  We answered these questions as a group on Tuesday, but we want to know what you think as well.  Simply put your replies in the comment section below (our only rule is you need to login with your Twitter, Facebook, or Disqus account so we actually know who you are).

The best part? The winner gets a free T-shirt from the great people over at Wiscy! What's better than free T-shirts? Everyone loves a free T-Shirt! So come join the fun.

ASIDE: You aren't feeling confident that you can win this thing but still REALLY need some gear for game day? Go visit our friends over at Wiscy and use the promo code BuckAround20 at checkout.  You get 20% off your order and as an added bonus you're helping out a business that is helping out your favorite podcast.
