On today’s episode of Bucky’s 5th Podcast we’ve got a full show covering some football hypothetical’s. First, we talk about the recent release of ESPN’s updated FPI which has the Badgers ranked rated rather high. So high that they’d be taking on Clemson in the College Football Playoff. What does that mean? Not that much really, but we deep dive on what the driving force is behind having the Badgers getting such high praises anyway.

After that, the conversation shifts to some other news in regard’s to team activities in the Big Ten, followed by our first installment of returning player profiles which is covered here on the site as well as on the podcast. Today we discuss the backfield combo of Mason Stokke and Nakia Watson as well as Eric Burrell.
