Those are just a few of the topics Hoss and Hooch cover with Jake Kocorowski from Bucky’s 5th Quarter. Jake is a busy podcast co-host as well as an editor at B5Q. We talk about Wisconsin’s 3-1 start to the season, including the close loss to BYU. Who are some players to watch out for besides Jonathon Taylor? Where are the Badgers’ weaknesses? Do the Badgers have any weaknesses?
And as always, Jon Damn Johnston comes in to give us the latest on the winos by his house and to give his thoughts on the loss to Purdue. And BAH GAWD! The predictions this week!
Well, Mother Nature is a cruel mistress who played a tune and danced on all of our hearts last Saturday night. So this Saturday afternoon, your UNDEFEATED Nebraska Cornhuskers will open the season against the pests of the past, the wienies to the west, the Colorado Buffaloes.
In this episode, we’re joined by a writer from Colorado’s SB Nation site, the Ralphie Report. Jeff Hauser covers the Buffs and is also a Heisman voter and FWAA member who took time out of his busy schedule to join us to talk about Colorado’s win in the Rocky Mountain Showdown. Who are some of the key components on the CU team that could be problematic for the Huskers?
And then after the break, it’s the return of Jon Damn Johnston. We are going to bring Jon in every week just to bring our opponents back down to reality. He’s a fan favorite, and by God, he’s our favorite as well. So hear the tale about torn down goalposts and tuxedos and get some predictions for the game. GBR!
In this episode, Hoss and Hooch take a departure from their summer Cross Examination series to get caught up on life and Husker news.
Last Saturday night, Hoss was in an emergency room in Missouri.
Scott Frost got away for a few days and hiked the Grand Canyon (24 miles) in one day. That can only help him in the locker room, but exactly how will it motivate the team? And how does Frost’s off-season compare to someone like Jim Harbaugh?
Let’s get caught up on some Husker recruits, shall we? It’s been a few weeks, but a QB from Colorado with a familiar last name committed to the Class of 2019. He’s joined by a couple offensive linemen who would add some much-needed depth and “NFL level” ability to the line. Throw in a defensive back that is eligible to play in 2018 and we have one more warm body in that room.
We talk about this preview piece by SB Nation’s Bill Connelly, why we agree and disagree with him.
And we end the show with Hoss regaling us with the tale of his Friday night in Omaha. Also, he’s a bit of a poet at the very end.
