Happy Wednesday all! A big night of football talk awaits us!
The first half of the show we'll look at some NFL news and notes, particularly with the Green Bay Packers and their rash of injuries. The Green Bay Press Gazette's Wes Hodkiewicz will join us again at 8:15 for some insight as we break down their match-up against former Badgers standout Joe Thomas and the Cleveland Browns.
We'll play some audio from Tuesday's practice with the Badgers offensive coordinator Andy Ludwig and offensive line coach T.J. Woods. Some great audio from the coaches in preparation for their night time affair with the Illinois FIghting Illini Saturday evening.
At 8:45, we'll preview what Illinois can bring against Wisconsin with The Champaign Room's Mark Primiano. We'll highlight what Chris Borland and the Badgers D will have to deal with the Illini offense under quarterback Nathan Scheelhaase and other weapons at his disposal. Illinois' defense is ranked 102nd overall and 97th against the run - will Melvin Gordon and James White run wild in Champaign? He'll let us know.
We'll also discuss Wisconsin Director of Athletics Barry Alvarez' selection as part of the College Football Playoff Selection Committee, what we've been hearing from possible Wisconsin football targets, along with our picks for this weekend's games.
