A super show is on tap for tonight's Kielbasa Kings Sports Extravaganza, of course presented by Bucky's 5th Quarter (and our new sponsor, Audible.com)!
At 8:30 p.m. CT, we'll break down Selection Sunday and the NCAA tournament brackets. Which teams were surprised with certain rankings, and how did Wisconsin fare in terms of its region and possible opponents?
At 8:45, B5Q's Phil Mitten joins Scott and I to talk March Madness. He'll tell us which teams could give Wisconsin trouble in Milwaukee, along with his thoughts on how far this team can go in a West region featuring No. 1 Arizona and No. 3 Creighton. Can Sam Dekker, Ben Brust and company avoid an upset before reaching the Sweet 16?
Around 9, we'll play the first of two conversations with former Badgers training for the NFL. Running back James White joined us last Tuesday to talk about his preparation for early May. Has he had a chance to talk with former running backs coach Thomas Hammock, who's now with the Baltimore Ravens, and where has he trained leading up to the NFL Scouting Combine and Wisconsin's pro day?
At about 9:30, former tight end Jacob Pedersen tells us his journey from the day after the Capital One Bowl until now. He told us what he learned from the three different Badgers tight end coaches he worked with, and who he's looked to for advice during this hectic time. An honest and open chat with a player who's looking to continue the great tradition of tight ends making an impact in the NFL.
Plus, we'll talk about the Green Bay Packers dipping into the free agent market and signing Julius Peppers, along with a potentially bad situation a former Wisconsin and NFL linemen's gotten himself into.
