On today’s episode of Bucky’s 5th podcast our focus dives into the Badgers opener against the Illinois Fighting Illini. In the front half we discuss the contest by first breaking down what we think the gameplan will be Friday evening, and what each side of the ball will need to do to come away with a victory. After that we discuss our concerns for the game (hint hint turnovers & special teams, sound familiar?). Following that we of course give our score predictions and our picks to click on both sides of the ball.
In the back half of the show we are joined by Stephen Cohn of The Champaign Room to get an insiders look on the Illinois Fighting Illini. In our discussion we talk about the expectations for Illinois football, the strengths and weakness of the squad, and where he thinks will shake out come Friday evening.
It feels so good to be back ladies and gentleman, and remember, we’ve got a THIRD podcast for you this week coming out Friday where we breakdown and give our Big Ten predictions for the 2020 season with Pick Six Previews!
