Episode 122 - The Golden Buckys: 2015 Edition

The end of 2015 - from a BuckAround perspective - is here. Rich and Max hand out their post season awards and close the book on the season that was, but not until they reveal the results of the prop bet competition with friend of the show Andy Schaaf and discuss possible reasons behind the mysteriously quiet (and long!) search for a new defensive coordinator

Episode 103 - Week 5 Review Iowa: Sneaky Bad

Coming off a turnover-laden clunker of a loss to Iowa, Rich and Max discuss the what went wrong Saturday at the hands of the Hawkeyes.

Episode 56 - Championship Week: Buckeye Road Kill

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! 

       

Episode 52 - Week 12: Bo Pelini Would Make a Wonderful Father-In-Law

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.

       

Episode 16 - Badgers Spring Game with Jesse Temple

Fresh off the Spring Game, Rich and Max are joined by Fox Sports Wisconsin's Jesse Temple who discusses Saturday's game and Spring Practice as a whole.  They talk the quarterback race, the complexion of the defense, and Max's ability to fit into 10 year old clothes.

       

Episode 9 - National Signing Day Wrap Up with Evan Flood

Evan Flood joins the BuckAround to break down the Badgers 2014 recruiting class. It's our best show yet.  Mostly because we let Evan do most the talking!

       

Episode 8 - Way too Early Depth Chart - Defensive and Special Teams Edition

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.

       

Episode 6 - The Golden Buckys

Rich and Max bid a fond farewell to the 2013 season with their first annual Golden Bucky Awards.  Want a last look at 2013 before the doldrums of the college football off season set in?  We have you covered!
