Starting off the week on the right note with another edition of the show with a special guest who’s using his performance at the NFL Scouting Combine to raise money for a special cause. Here’s the full breakdown:

  • Inside linebacker Ryan Connelly hopes to impress NFL personnel this upcoming week at the NFL Scouting Combine. We talk about his training, the injury that he dealt with during the course of his redshirt senior campaign, his career at Wisconsin, and (most importantly!!!) his Pledge It fundraiser for the American Lung Association that is linked to his performance in the vertical jump—and why he’s doing it. In our humble opinion, a MUST LISTEN interview with yet another former Wisconsin Badgers walk-on on the doorstep of the NFL.
  • On that note, Connelly is one of eight Wisconsin Badgers participating in the NFL Scouting Combine. Owen and Jake discuss what they’ll be watching for and what fans should keep an eye out for, along with those we feel could be a surprise or help their stock the most this upcoming week.

Again, please check the Pledge ItRyan Connelly Raising Up for My Mom” link to find out how you can support Ryan and the American Lung Association.
