03.01.2019: Alex Hornibrook departs and March Madness begins

Mar 01, 04:51 PM

Badgers beat reporter Jeff Potrykus joins host JR Radcliffe to discuss the big news that Badgers quarterback Alex Hornibrook is leaving the football program, and how many names should realistically be in the hunt to replace him. Yes, the name Graham Mertz is said more than once. What's Hornibrook's legacy in Madison? With the NFL Combine under way this week, which Badgers participant is likely to have the best NFL career?

But it's March, so we we have to talk basketball. The Badgers will look to finish strong and secure a top-four bye in the upcoming Big Ten tournament. What's to be done about Ethan Happ's significant foul-shooting issues, and who needs to rise up aside from Happ and D'Mitrik Trice? Jeff and JR also look back at the Indiana loss and assess what could make this team a second-weekend squad in the NCAA Tourney ... or a first-round exit.
