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

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.
Feigin discussed the process the Bucks used to submit proposals to host a future All Star Game, which will be either in the 2020-2021 season or the 2021-2022 season. That process, he explained, involved a shared interest with the NBA to bring an All Star Game to Milwaukee.
“It’s a matter of when,” Feigin began. “…Part of our campaign and what we’ve said to the NBA is ‘We’re all in this together. This is a huge message for a small-market team to have [the All Star Game] on an international stage.'”
“My expectation is if we didn’t get it for 2021, some team that was maybe a little more deserving might get it, but there’s no way we’re not going to get it in the near future, which is important to us.”
Feigin also announced a timeline for naming the D-League team being established in Oshkosh, which broke ground on arena construction early last week.
While a team name is set to be announced in the “next couple weeks,” the Bucks have made it a priority that they’d like the name to be taken seriously, thus, names like the “Deer Ticks” and “B’Goshs” are not being considered. Feigin said at least one of the names up for discussion was submitted by a fan, but he didn’t provide any other hints.
MADISON | With the Packers currently thin at the running back position, would their all-time leading rusher be willing to come back and play if he got the call? “Hell yeah I would go,” Ahman Green told the Joe & Ebo Show. “What would be the hesitation? It’s something that I love to do,” he continued.
Ahman Green also shared his insight on the the possibility of Adrian Peterson coming to Titletown and if Ty Montgomery can be the #1 option for the upcoming season.
Outside of football, Ahman is very active with charities, his foundation, a leading spokesman for the Alzheimers Association of Wisconsin, and an avid fan of video games, comic books, superheroes and even has a role in a few movies.
