Bucky’s 5th Podcast, Ep. 24: 2018 FIFA World Cup preview with Rafael Gaglianone

This was a lot of fun.

We return with an international edition of Bucky’s 5th Podcast, as Drew Hamm and Jake Kocorowski welcome Wisconsin kicker and diehard Brazil fan Rafael Gaglianone to the podcast to break down what we’ll see at the 2018 World Cup. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll nominate us for a podcasting award (OK, maybe not the latter, but please consider us). At least enjoy Drew poking fun at Jim Harbaugh and Michigan in pre-B1G Roast mode.

Here’s the full preview from our nearly half-hour chat:

[0:00-28:45] From inside Camp Randall Stadium, Gaglianone talks about Wisconsin’s summer conditioning so far, along with his love of soccer and the following:

  • Growing up and playing soccer in Brazil
  • This year’s Brazilian squad
  • Who he’s looking forward to watching and his favorite kits
  • Why people in Wisconsin schedule fall weddings

Seriously, a can’t miss conversation with one of Wisconsin’s all-time efficient placekickers heading into his senior season.

[29:00-end of show] Jake discusses Jeff Potrykus’s report about defensive ends Garrett Rand and Isaiahh Loudermilk being “out indefinitely” and what it could mean to the defense, along with who will have to step up in their potential absence.
