GUEST ALERT: Richard Rhoden of the Aurora News-Register
We were lucky enough to be joined by friend of the program Richard Rhoden, the Sports Editor of the Aurora News-Register. Connor butchered the newspaper name during the podcast. I wouldn’t rule out Rich publishing a slam piece on Connor as a retort.
Erin Sorensen last week was an impossible act to follow, but Rich did one hell of a job with those guest shoes to fill.

Wisconsin (Honey) Badgers DO Care…?
Wisconsin fans are the nicest fans in college football. Is that a hot take? Let me know.
A lot of Wisconsin talk this week, reflecting on some painful Husker losses at the hands of the Badgers. Might need to update our location on Twitter to Camp Randall for a week.
Just to hurt Connor’s feelings, here’s a highlight reel of Jonathan Taylor pounding the rock against the 2018 Huskers.
