In this week’s Jake’s Take, sports director Jake Zimmermann says Brewers second baseman Eric Sogard is quickly becoming a cult hero and for good reason. Jake says the nerdy looking guy seems to get it done each and every game. Last Monday he became just the 6th player in Brewers history to homer in his first two starts. He had a career-high four hits the next night. Two days later, on Thursday May 18th, Sogard followed it up with another 4 hit game.

In this week’s edition of Jake’s Take, sports director Jake Zimmermann says Badger men’s basketball player Nigel Hayes will be missed for a variety of reasons. Jake says the former Badger, who’s taking part in the NBA combine in Chicago this week, will go down in school history as one of the best Badgers on the court and one of the most influential off the court.
This week Hayes wrote what he called a commencement address on the Players Tribune titled “Don’t Just Shut Up and Play.” The forward gave a couple of final messages.. his biggest? Telling his class to never stay in your lanes. In other words, just because they are athletes doesn’t mean they get to talk about sports. Hayes argues he has the right to speak his mind about a variety of issues. Jake Zimmermann agrees.
