Just when we thought we wouldn’t record another show until next week, Wisconsin announced on Wednesday afternoon that quarterback Alex Hornibrook had opted to leave the football program. Sooooo ...


We break down the following on this hour-long episode:

  • The announcement, his Instagram post and reports about entering the Transfer Portal.
  • His legacy as a quarterback at UW; the good times, the bad times, and more.
  • The QB competition that feels more wide open than before, though there is a player that holds a significant edge in Jack Coan, and also how it affects the chances of a certain four-star QB in Graham Mertz
  • We bring back our mailbag segment to answer your questions on Chase Wolf’s chances as QB1, way-too-early thoughts on who will be the starting quarterback next year and yes, even if UW will retire Hornibrook’s number (yes, the last one was more tongue-in-cheek)
