Episode 72 - Media Relations

After taking a week off (OK, a week and a half!) Rich and Max return to discuss the latest developments in spring practice.  They look at the depth at running back, the questions at wide receiver, and the pronunciation of Alex Hornibrook's name.  They close the show with Rich's theory on why the Badgers have had such a "quiet" spring.

Wrapping up what they started last week, Rich and Max take a stab at projecting the 2015 defense.
