SORT BY Relevancy
We kick off our third year as YOUR Wisconsin-sports podcast by bringing on another former Wisconsin Badgers standout in the NFL. Linebacker Conor O'Neill talks about the emotions he experienced after the Chicago Bears told him they would sign him as a free agent in June, his training preparation for the NFL, and who he thinks will lead the 2014 Badgers defense under defensive coordinator Dave Aranda.
Plus, we'll talk LeBron James heading back to the Cleveland Cavaliers, and how that'll affect the Milwaukee Bucks. If LeBron can be forgiven in Cleveland, what would it take for Badgers fans to forgive Bret Bielema, or Green Bay Packers fans to forgive Brett Favre?
Can the Milwaukee Brewers get out of their funk to start the second half of the season? Their rough two weeks are looked at, and also we discuss the tragic loss of shortstop Jean Segura's son. We give our sincere thoughts and prayers to the Segura family during this rough and trying time.

We will talk about the stand-outs from the G1 Climax Tournamanet of New Japan Pro Wrestling and perhaps TNA
