MADISON, Wis. — With the Milwaukee Bucks and free agent point guard Derrick Rose reportedly having mutual interest in a free agency signing, the boys of The Neighborhood were at odds.

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.

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

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?

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
Terry Gawlik | Senior Associate Athletic Director for Sports Administration, University of Wisconsin
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.
