In our second episode of Bucky’s 5th Podcast, we bring on our first Super Bowl champion to the show, a beloved former Wisconsin Badgers walk-on and team captain in Philadelphia Eagles safety Chris Maragos. Plus, we welcome one of the newest commits to the class of 2019 in North Carolina wide receiver Nolan Groulx.
Not to mention, we debut the podcast version of our “B1G Roast” with the “beloved” and not-yet-fired (somehow) Drew Hamm.
Lots of Super Bowl, recruiting, and basketball talk this week!
- 0:00–19:00: Chris Maragos chats with B5Q about: How his Eagles fought through injuries to come within a game of being Super Bowl champion; being a presence on the team despite currently placed on IR due to a PCL injury; how former Badgers Beau Allen and Corey Clement have contributed to the Super Bowl run; where he is with rehab and when we should expect him back on the field; how he isn’t surprised that friend and current Wisconsin defensive coordinator Jim Leonhard is thriving as a college football coach
- 19:00–42:38: Drew joins the B5P to bring the B1G Roast into podcast form, reflecting on the likes of Wisconsin, Minnesota, Illinois, Purdue, and Penn State. He also discusses living in the city that is hosting the Super Bowl, the Royal Rumble, and why he’ll never listen to himself on this, or any, podcast.
- 42:40–55:04: Recruiting news: Wisconsin picked up two big football commitments for its class of 2019 in safety Bryson Shaw and wide receiver Nolan Groulx. Groulx joins the show to discuss pulling the trigger, what stood out about UW that made him decide to end his recruiting process, and how that class of Badgers is already bonding.
- 55:05–End: We finish up recruiting talk with 2019 safety Bryson Shaw and the new offer for 2018 point guard Xavier Pinson. We also break out our new quick-hitters segment, the “Joel Stave Two-Minute Drill,” touching base on women and men’s hockey.
