Starting off Friday's show with a grab bag of stories. Jake Kocorowski returns to break down the matchup for the Badgers against Purdue. Then we close out the first hour with Butch's Breakdown and a best tweet we saw.
We begin Thursday's show with a little 'Hold Up Stop The Tape' with some Aaron Rodgers audio as the Packers QB was pretty loose at the podium when he met with the media on Wednesday. David Strauss pops in to talk about a brutal Thursday Night football matchup in the NFL, what's in store for the weekend and where Adam Schefter may land if he leaves ESPN. Really good insight and inside information on Schefty from David! Also a Butch's Breakdown from Brian that looks at the PAC 12 and B.J. is now a Kendrick Perkins fan after today's 'Best Tweet We Saw' as Perk is sold on Giannis.
Always a fun start to the second hour as KB swings by to talk all things "Stuff" including today where we found out there isn't much he sucks at except home improvement projects. B.J. and Brian look at the moves by Green Bay and don't necessarily believe the moves for Jaylon Smith and Whitney Mercilus indicated 'All-In' moves. They feel like they are more high reward/low risk financial moves. Plus what is the over under for houses hit by trick-or-treaters? If you can bet on it B.J. and Brian will find a way to put a line out.
Beginning Wednesday's as usual by taking a look at what Aaron Rodgers had to say on the Pat McAfee show and it didn't disappoint as he explained more on the reasoning behind the greatest moment of smack talk in the Packers/Bears rivalry...."I Still Own You". We catch up with Ti Windisch to bask in the championship glow of the Bucks and the impressive win on opening night. And Chris Broussard is the subject of our 'Best Tweet We Saw' due to a massive letdown by his brain.
Quite the interesting second hour as the good vibes on Wednesday were fueled by a championship celebration by the Bucks and a 127-104 beat down of the Nets to kick off the 2021-22 season. A mid-show phone call from none other than "El Grande" spurred a Bucks win total bet of 72 for Milwaukee, which B.J. and Brian quickly took. More on the rings, banner and Giannis' MVP start to the season. Plus a story about Tinder's new option on their APP to help out single wedding goers.
A very happy Tuesday as B.J. and Brian are still basking in Bears fans misery. We hear from Matt LaFleur as Green Bay turns their attention to the Washington Football Team. Balky joins the show to talk Bucks title defense and also gives you the latest and greatest fantasy football adds for Week 7. Brian give you his Butch's Breakdown with just 3 weeks until the college basketball season begins and a 'best tweet we saw' where Brian decides to bury the UW-Platteville QB for a late game fail.
We begin the second hour looking at the Milwaukee Bucks who begin their title defense Tuesday night against the Brooklyn Nets. In all honesty B.J. and Brian believe there won't be much of a story line during the regular season unless they make a move to add an 'enforcer' to the roster. John Dinse swings by to talk Packers beatdown of the Bears and the depth of the roster that continues to impress for Green Bay. Finally a story that you couldn't dream up that involves a woman streaking on an 8th grade practice field....seriously, you can't make this stuff up.
Another winning Monday to celebrate as B.J. and Brian discuss the ownership of the Chicago Bears by Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers. A weekend whip-around in the NFL with Week 6 and LSU moving on from Coach O. Greg Pederson gets you locked in for some action on the ALCS and NLCS. Butch's breakdown features 'Silent Scrimmages' and a best tweet we saw that short and sweet but the best.
The second hour on Monday begins with more good vibes with the Packers 24-14 win over the Bears. Aaron Rodgers' "I still own you", is true in so many ways and even Bears fans are accepting it. B.J. and Brian take a listen to running back Aaron Jones' comments following Sunday's win. David Gasper swings by to put a bow on the Brewers season and look towards what will be an extremely important off-season filled with tons of key player arbitration hearings.
Starting off Friday's show loose like usual with a grab bag of stories that includes; sex in a stall at a Panthers game, Tiger gender reveal & measuring shafts. Jake Kocorowski returns to break down the non-traditional matchup for the Badgers against Army. We close out the first hour with Butch's Breakdown featuring Iowa hoops and a best tweet for the Kracken with a franchise first!
Friday's second hour begins by taking a look at the Brewers roster and loads of arbitration eligible players for the 2022 season. Not only is there a high number of guys up for arbitration, there are some key contributors set for a hefty pay raise. The boys have you covered for Sunday's Packers/Bears rivalry with Dave Schroeder from WBAY Action 2 sports and a weekend primer filled with a six-pack of picks and Monday's headlines on Friday.
Beginning Thursday by trying to move past the Brewers season being over by focusing on Packers v. Bears. The boys play a little "Hold Up Stop the Tape" with some Aaron Rodgers audio from Wednesday's presser. David Strauss swings in to talk Fury Wilder, NLDS game 5 bets for Dodgers/Giants and week 6 action in the NFL. Finally we close out the first hour with another Butch's Breakdown and a spot on take in the 'Best Tweet We Saw' featuring Chargers head coach Brandon Staley.
In Thursday's second hour the boys continue to try to get over the Brewers loss to the Braves and the season being over. Helps that it's Packers/Bears week as the attention can turn solely to that. KB jumps on to talk fitted hat sizes, Crew criticism and the worst moment for the Packers in the rivalry. More on that matchup with some Aaron Rodgers audio as well as the conversation on how luck Green Bay has been at the QB position for the last 30 years. What will the next decade plus look at that position and how grateful should we really be right now? Finally the Pizza Bet is back with Papa Murphy's! B.J. and Brian pick a little Thursday night football for the wager.
The pain of another postseason lost headlines Wednesday show as B.J. and Brian roll out the therapy couch to shift through the Brewers season ending NLDS loss to the Atlanta Braves. Easy to second guess Manager Craig Counsell's decisions and criticism is fine, but do you still support him? How frustrating should this Brewers loss be, based on the lack of offense all year? Plus a ton of phones calls from disappointed listeners and the end of the first hour wraps with Butch's Breakdown and the best tweet we saw.
More Brewers pain for the fellas in the second hour as former MLB pitcher Paul Wagner joined B.J. and Brian to break down Milwaukee's game four season ending loss to the Braves in the NLDS. From Counsell's moves to the easing back at the end of the season after winning the division, it was all on the table Wednesday morning. Head coach of the UW-Oshkosh football team, Pat Cerroni joins the show to talk about Saturday's big WIAC game against Whitewater.
