As we talked about the Packers and T.J. Lang’s future with the team on the Joe & Ebo Show, our conversation took a very bizarre turn with one caller looking for her true love.
Now, it’s Valentine’s Day, I get it, people either love or hate this “holiday” as they search for someone to love them. Cue Maggie (lovingly tabbed as Maniac Maggie after her call) he thought she had found her soulmate in Joe Miller after a night out drinking.
Take a listen:
Yeah, this woman is crazy. It didn’t end there though.
Maniac Maggie then left a voicemail to the front desk. We were forwarded her message and more craziness ensued.
So. Many. Questions.
Who is Maggie? Is she Joe’s soulmate? What is Joe not telling us? Will Joe and Maggie got to 50 Shades Darker tonight? I MUST KNOW!
MADISON | The NCAA says Ron Dayne is no longer the FBS career-rushing holder despite him running for more yards than anyone else.
San Diego State’s Donnel Pumphrey broke the NCAA’s all-time record for rushing yards in a career on Saturday, going for 115 yards in the Aztecs’ 34-10 win against Houston in the Las Vegas Bowl. The senior finished his career with 6,405 yards, topping the previous mark of 6,397 yards held by Wisconsin’s Ron Dayne since 1999.
Now I know what you’re thinking, ‘didn’t Dayne have more yards than that?” Well, yes, yes he did! The NCAA says Dayne’s career total was 6,397, the Wisconsin record book puts it at 7,125 yards. Why the discrepancy? Well, the NCAA didn’t start counting bowl stats until 2002, meaning the 725 yards Dayne ran for his four bowl games, including three 200-yard outings, aren’t counted in the official stats.
The numbers don’t lie, and they are there, but the NCAA doesn’t want anything to do with that.
Sign the petition to recognize Ron Dayne is the real All-time rushing leader!

Success of UW walk-on tradition is the focus of new book titled Walk-On This Way. Jake Kocorowski, co-author, joined the Joe & Ebo Show to talk on his project. Listen below!
WALK-ON THIS WAY
A new book that looks at the success of the University of Wisconsin football walk-on tradition will be hitting area stores October 17.
Walk-On This Way – The Ongoing Legacy of the Wisconsin Football Walk-On Tradition by Joel Nellis and Jake Kocorowski highlights the contributions made by the “undersized, underdeveloped and under recruited” players that have played a vital role in the success of Wisconsin football’s 216 wins and six Rose Bowl appearances since 1990, featuring first person accounts and over 100 interviews with former players and coaches.
“Walk-ons are now a staple of the highly successful UW program,” said co-author Nellis, a former walk-on tight end at UW from 2001-2006. “Former walk-ons like Jim Leonhard, JJ Watt, Mark Tauscher, Ricky Wagner and Chris Maragos have gone on to excel in the NFL – and their stories are certainly highlighted in the book | but many others continue the legacy of making significant contributions to the program while toiling outside of the limelight. We felt some of their stories needed to be shared with Badger fans as well.”
Walk-On This Way provides Wisconsin fans with the stories of the unheralded and underappreciated players whose love for the game and sacrifice for the good of the team helped build one of the top football programs in the country. The book will be available at all traditional bookstores as well as Bucky’s Locker Room and www.kcisports.com.
KCI Sports Publishing is one of the leading publishers of sports titles in the country.
If you’d like more information about this book, or to schedule an interview with Joel Nellis or Jake Kocorowski, please call Peter Clark at 217-766-3390 or email Peter at firstname.lastname@example.org
MADISON | Some are born great, some achieve greatness, and some have greatness thrust upon them. I think it’s safe to say, today on the Joe & Ebo Show, a random caller named John achieved greatness.
During a great debate over the Packers and Giants, the studio phone line lit up, we went to it and a radio legend was born.
Now before you listen to one of the hottest takes of all time, leading up to this phone call, no one had ever mentioned one thing about second hand smoke or anything remotely close to sounding like second hand smoke. Please, take a listen:
Ladies and gentleman, the man, the myth, the legend… Second Hand Smoke John. A phone line is always open for you.
