Bucky’s 5th Podcast, ep. 197: The good, the bad, and the ugly from the Big Ten’s first week

So, uhh, yeah we’ve got a lot to talk about. Some good, some not so positive... as we await a false positive?

The first week of the Big Ten’s return to action has come and gone and there is a LOT to unpack. To make it simple, we divided today’s episode into three sections. The tried and true system of the good, the bad, and the ugly. To start, we talk the good which includes a breakdown of the Badgers big win over Illinois with focus on a dominating performances by the Badgers defense and quarterback Graham Mertz.

After that we talk the bad which gets into the struggles of the game for the Badgers on both sides of the football, and the major news off the field surrounding said quarterback Graham Mertz (fingers crossed, people) and what to make of that developing story. To end we talk the ugly which is surprisingly not going to focused on Rutgers but thankfully for us we can rip on pretty much the rest of the Big Ten West and Michigan State out East.

There’s a lot to get to on this one, we hope you enjoy as we head into Week 2!
