In today’s episode of Bucky’s 5th Podcast we talk a little bit of everything to get the week started. To open the show we talk some Wisconsin football recruiting as the Badgers pick up a huge commitment from 3-star outside linebacker Jake Ratzlaff.

We break down his commitment and then get into a strong first week of Wisconsin basketball. In our talk we break down what the Badgers did well in their first two contests, what they will need to improve on, and how the young players like Ben Carlson and Johnathan Davis looked in their debut.

Following the basketball talk we get into some news around the Big Ten in the likes of a brutal loss for Northwestern, Ohio State’s Championship hopes in jeopardy, and the Sickos Bowl between Penn State and Michigan.
