Excellent Wisconsin football and basketball

This is the best Wisconsin podcast by far. They are not homers but also don’t act like they know it all. They are fair to the players and coaching staff. They do an excellent job of breaking down the season and the games.

I also appreciate how they answer questions and are not afraid to tell listeners when they are off track.

What I like best about this podcast is that they cover content but don’t rehash the same subject over and over like the major sport shows.
