“THIS. IS. MARCH.

The Wisconsin Badgers upset No. 1 overall seed Villanova last Saturday in Buffalo, N.Y., to advance to the Sweet 16. Now, they try to make it to their third Final Four in four years -- but first, Nigel Hayes, Bronson Koenig, Ethan Happ and others must take down the Florida Gators and either Baylor or South Carolina at Madison Square Garden in New York City. We preview the Badgers and Gators match-up and make our revised NCAA Tournament Final Four picks!

ESPN Wisconsin's Jason Wilde stop by to discuss the current state of the Green Bay Packers after NFL free agency has started, along with giving his thoughts on what former Wisconsin standout tight end Lance Kendricks could bring to Aaron Rodgers' offense. Plus, despite the re-signing of Nick Perry, does general manager Ted Thompson look at All-American T.J. Watt at outside linebacker at No. 29?”

For those that don’t know as well, Jason’s a UW-Madison graduate who worked at the Badger Herald. He had some great insights into what the state of the athletic program was during his time as a student.
