Quality content

Zach and Jesse are good hosts. They have a great knowledge of Wisconsin basketball and typically have a good conversation - with a wild tangent every now and then. Everything from recruiting to coaching, individual players to game breakdown. 5/5 - have listened to every episode.

Great to have a Badger basketball focused podcast.

Why be a sports fan?

The host baffles me. Should you go all in on this Badger team? Or anything in life? He says you will be hurt at the end of the season, really? Why participate in life with that attitude! At the end of the day or your journey in life you will never achieve all your dreams but it sure is fun to try and see what happens. Plus you should grow and learn from your experiences to build a better person. Life is a journey and you never know where it will get you. Enjoy the Badger season as you never know what happens. Just ask Howard Moore.
