Recorded: March 12, 2021 | It took a few tries, but The Boys finally got the boy Maxx Crosby on the bus. A young monster defensive end for the Raiders, Maxx came out to Nashville just to get on the bus, so it's safe to say he's for the boys. Will and Maxx kick things off by discussing Maxx's recent battle with Covid-19 (which is why his voice sounds like he's been gargling gravel), then Maxx reviews the Raiders' 2020 season, compares his rookie season to his second, and the two studs swap stories of what it was like playing against Tom Brady.
Next, Maxx opens up and reveals the REAL reason why he was dodging The Boys last year (and it's an excuse The Boys could never be mad about). He explains how he has been sober for 1 year after checking himself into rehab last March because his partying was taking over his life. This leads to some honest talk about owning insecurities and what it really means to "be a man." This was one of the coolest moments we've ever had on the bus. Then, Maxx talks about how uncertainty almost derailed his track to the NFL Draft, how he developed a relationship with Marcus Mariota, playing against Taylor, playing high school football in Texas, the Oklahoma vs Nebraska drama, living in Las Vegas.
Lastly, they dig into some wild ways dudes are "allegedly" preparing for games in the league, and they swap some of their craziest college football stories. This one's an instant classic. Enjoy.
TAKE A LOOK UNDER THE HOOD WITH BRYAN CALLEN, SEAN STEMALY, & BUCK REISING
On this episode of UTH... Will crashes a recording of Pickin' With The Boys where Sean Stemaly is laying down an acoustic version of his new smash, "Hello You Up". Then, Will and the crew prep for a pod with actor/comedian/podcasting legend, Bryan Callen. After the pod, Bryan takes off and everybody else stays behind for a little brainstorming session before Will heads downtown to appear on 104.5 The Zone with the boy Buck Reising.
