Listen here:

The first 35 minutes of the show are dedicated to Selection Sunday. How did Wisconsin fare in the West region? How far can the Badgers go, and who will be the biggest obstacles? Phil Mitten comes on around the 15-minute mark to let us know which Badgers need to step up in the Big Dance, as well as his favorites to head to Dallas for the Final Four.

About 35-38 minutes in, we play our conversation with former Badgers running back James White. A great 8-minute conversation detailing his young journey to the NFL and his preparation for the next level. What's he been working to improve upon since his last collegiate game? He lets us know.

We then discuss Marquette and its squashed NIT hopes, and why it was in the Golden Eagles' best interest to end their season after not being invited to the NIT.

The Green Bay Packers signed Julius Peppers. We state why the signing was a great move by Ted Thompson, but also acknowledge that "TT" will never win with certain sects of Packers fans.

At the 1:08 mark, Jacob Pedersen tells us who he's asked for advice during his NFL draft process, along with why he thinks he's a great fit for NFL teams.
