Before we break down the show's events, if you like the Kielbasa Kings Sports Extravaganza, why not go to podcastawards.com and nominate us among the top sports podcasts? We've brought you the voice of Wisconsin football in Matt Lepay, local, ESPN and Big Ten Network analysts, as well as a slew of former Wisconsin Badgers. We'd be humbled and honored if you nominated us. Voting ends Tuesday evening at 11:59 p.m.
On to the episode...
The first 20 minutes are dedicated to some NFL reviews. How many more injuries can the Green Bay Packers withstand? How did they pull out the win over former Badgers tackle Ricky Wagner and the Baltimore Ravens?
At the 20-minute mark, we proudly welcome on Fox Sports Wisconsin's Jesse Temple to breakdown the Badgers' dominant victory over the Northwestern Wildcats. How did the defense, led by Chris Borland, hold the Wildcats' offense to half of its normal output? How much did Jeff Duckworth, Alex Erickson and Jordan Frederick step up in place for the injured Jared Abbrederis? We also look ahead to Illinois before our Wednesday football preview show.
We also talk more football and how other former Badgers, from Russell Wilson's Seattle Seahawks to the Denver Broncos' Montee Ball to the Houston Texans' J.J. Watt, are looking. How far have the Texans fallen without tight end Owen Daniels? Plus, is former Badgers linebacker DeAndre Levy having a career season in Detroit?
Check back 8 p.m. CT Wednesday, as we preview Joel Stave and Wisconsin's trip down to Illinois to face the Fighting Illini.
