The Joe & Ebo Experience: Them Be Fightin’ Words

MADISON | Not sure if there’s something in the air or everyone just woke up on the wrong side of the bed, but it got testy today.

With caller on caller violence running rampant on the airwaves this lovely Tuesday, it got me thinking on a new event… THE ZONE’S FIRST PAY PER VIEW WRESTLING MATCH! Seriously, let’s make this happen. I need something to hold me over until football is back.

In between the on-air spats, we also get into our own power rankings in the NFL and try and nail down our Brewers party. Give it a listen.

The Joe & Ebo Experience: Cutty Does It

MADISON | A very tough day in the NFL, but when we’re feeling down, we must remember the good times.

It’s with a heavy heart that I type this… Jay Cutler’s playing days are behind him. *tries to hold back the tears* That’s right. Jay Cutler is hanging it up for a job in the broadcast both. *tears begin to flow*

We’ll never forget you and all the love you showed the Packers defense, Jay.

The news was so upsetting that Joe Miller couldn’t even complete the show. He was sure to give his love though, as well as

The Joe & Ebo Experience: Did You Say Rookie Or Wookie

MADISON | May the Fourth be with you,  you nerds.

How can people not love Star Wars? I could go on a rant here, but I won’t. I guess I’ll just never understand how someone can’t appreciate cinema at it’s finest.

Now, before I pop in the Empire Strikes Back,  which rookie do you think will make the biggest impact for the Packers this season? We get into that and celebrate everything Star Wars.

The Joe & Ebo Experience: Take The Over

MADISON | Ah, you think gambling is your ally? You merely adopted gambling. We were born in it, molded by it.

Vegas has released the Over/Under’s for the NFL season and we couldn’t be happier as the Joe & Ebo Show was born from a gambling show.

Speaking of gambling, would you gamble on potentially trading Eric Thames for some more prospects for the Brewers and their rebuild moving forward? It got a little heated today.

The Joe & Ebo Experience: Weekend At Teddy’s

MADISON | We need football back in our lives, like, right now.

We got a taste of some NFL action with the Draft, and it got our juices flowing. Apparently, after cutting Michael and Jackson, Ted Thompson wasn’t finished yet either.

Also, who saw this coming from the Milwaukee Brewers? Keep turning up the heat!

MADISON | The NFL Draft and Ted Thompson — a match made in football heaven.

With the Packers draft over, it’s time to decipher what’s going to happen with their new players and the upcoming season. Oh, and no beer goggles here, but who thought the Brewers would be looking this decent?

Baseball at Wisconsin: Progress Report

MADISON, Wis. — I’ve started research for my next in-depth report and I wanted to take this opportunity to let our listeners/readers know where I’m at in the process. I’ll try to do these somewhat regularly as a way to inform the public, but also allow feedback on parts I may be getting wrong or new directions to consider.

Topic: Baseball at the University of Wisconsin and if it’s possible to revive the program

Interviews completed:
Terry Gawlik | Senior Associate Athletic Director for Sports Administration, University of Wisconsin

Interviews Requested:
Jeff Block | head coach of club baseball, University of Wisconsin
Pat Richter | former Athletic Director, University of Wisconsin
John Vodenlich | head baseball coach, University of Wisconsin | Whitewater
Bud Selig | former MLB commissioner and Milwaukee Brewers owner, University of Wisconsin alum
Herb Kohl | former Milwaukee Bucks owner, U.S. Senator, University of Wisconsin alum
Steve Schmitt | Owner of Big Top Baseball and Madison Mallards

Interviews declined:
Barry Alvarez | Athletic Director, University of Wisconsin

Summary of information gathered so far: In speaking with Terry Gawlik, it appears very unlikely Wisconsin will ever revive its baseball program unless there is a substantial surplus of revenue. Operating costs have run at or very near revenue generated in each fiscal budget report for at least the last 10 years. Barry Alvarez also appears to have no willingness to bring baseball back to Wisconsin at this time.
