What kind of statement can the Wisconsin Badgers make with a victory Saturday against the Nebraska Huskers? Can Melvin Gordon continue rolling over defenses and stay in contention for the Heisman Trophy? Can Joel Stave and Tanner McEvoy, along with the Badgers' wide receivers, help keep the Huskers' defense honest to allow the Badgers to run wild?
We'll also recap several former Badgers' big days in the NFL. Chris Borland has 35 tackles in two games, and J.J. Watt's on TWO magazine covers this week!
Plus, we'll recap the Green Bay Packers' big victory over the Chicago Bears -- can they keep it up against former Badgers Chris Maragos, Beau Allen and the 7-2 Philadelphia Eagles?
Great Plains writer Marilyn June Coffey has written three books, 600 poems, and dozens of articles and stories. A trained journalist (B.A., University of Nebraska, 1959) and creative writer (M.F.A., Brooklyn College, 1981), she has produced work that includes a popular memoir, a record-setting novel, and a prize-winning poem. Her poem, Pricksong, reviewed in the Los Angeles Times Book Review and Newsweek, won a national Pushcart Prize. Coffey's novel Marcella made literary history. It was the first novel written in English to use female autoeroticism as a main theme. Gloria Steinem called it "an important part of the truth telling by and for women. In 1989, Coffey's memoir, Great Plains Patchwork, appeared. The New York Times called it entertaining and insightful. Atlantic Monthly featured a chapter as its cover story. Natural History bought two chapters, American Heritage one. Harper & Row, McGraw-Hill, Macmillan, and Harcourt Brace Jovanovich printed excerpts. Known as a prose stylist, Coffey received a Master Alumnus award for distinction in the field of writing from the University of Nebraska in 1977. Since 1987, the UN-L Archives has collected forty boxes of Coffey's papers in its Mari Sandoz room. In 1991, Coffey investigated the orphan train movement, developing three programs for the Nebraska Humanities Council. One became the second most popular of the 232 programs underwritten by NHC and spurred her to write Mail-Order Kid. Now retired, Coffey taught writing at Boston University, Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, and Fort Hays State University in Kansas for thirty-four years, twice earning tenure. She became an interpretive reader/performer, appearing on local radio stations, statewide TV, and before more than 130 groups in twelve states, from Maine to Texas.
Her new book, Thieves, Rascals, & Sore Losers is available for pre-order.

The Wisconsin EMS Live broadcast on Tuesday, April 14 is dedicated to Community Paramedicine and recent action by the Physicians Advisory Committee.
The CommunityParamedicine conversation will run from 9:00 to 9:40 a.m. Our guests include Minnesota Ambulance Association’s Buck McAlpin, PAAW President Patrick Ryan, and city of Milwaukee Fire Department’s Michael Wright. All three are deeply involved in CP and building the infrastructure to deliver it the right way here in Wisconsin. Like anything new or evolving some education and learning is required to move forward, and there will be many questions to ask and answer.
Community Paramedicine programs have been evolving in Minnesota, Colorado and Texas. An architect in Minnesota’s CP development is Buck McAlpin, director of government affairs for the Minnesota Ambulance Association and North Memorial Medical Transportation in Robbinsdale, Minnesota. Given his experience in leading CP concepts in Minnesota, McAlpin’s knowledge and expertise is being sought nationally, to include by the Professional Ambulance Association of Wisconsin.
At 9:40 a.m. we’ll be joined by Dr. Suzanne Martens, Chair of the Physicians Advisory Committee. Her group recently recommended use of nitrous oxide as an option to control pain management at the Advanced EMT level and higher. Another recommendation is allowing one paramedic and one trained airway technician to perform a medication assisted advanced airway procedure that under current situations requires two paramedics.
As always, the live show offers caller questions. Make sure to listen live on your phone or any internet connected device on Tuesday, April 14 starting at 9:00 a.m. central time and lasting 60 minutes.

Yes, Bobby Gonzalez picked Kentucky to go all the way ... but always included the caveat that a lot would have to go wrong for them to lose in this tourney, and a lot would have to go right for someone else to beat them.
That's exactly what happened last night.
Kentucky only made three 3-pointers, only shot 10 free throws, got outrebounded by 12 ... but more than anything else, they did not do the things they were known for, the things that got them to 38-0.
They always played to win in close games, instead of not to lose, except last night they were up 4 with under 5 minutes to go but then got very tentative with their offense, having three shot clock violations and not getting the ball into an unstoppable force, big man Karl Anthony Towns, down the stretch.
They did not get stops like they always had in the last few minutes, and ultimately Wisconsin did to Kentucky what Kentucky did to everyone else all year ... they closed out the game with all the big shots, big defensive stops and big plays down the stretch.
Coach Bo Ryan took advantage of matchups and exploited Kentucky with his multi-dimensional and multi-skilled front court of Frank Kaminsky Sam Dekker and Nigel Hayes. All that was up for discussion this morning on Ian O'Connor's radio show on ESPN Radio in New York.
Can Frank Kaminsky, Sam Dekker and the Wisconsin Badgers overcome the powerhouse Kentucky Wildcats? How can the Badgers stop Willie Cauley-Stein, Karl-Anthony Towns and Aaron Harrison?
Who else needs to step up besides Wisconsin's big two. Can Nigel Hayes, Bronson Koenig and Josh Gasser all contribute, and will Duje Dukan and Zak Showalter provide key minutes off the bench?
WIll Bo Ryan's team get to the magical National title game against Duke or Big Ten rival Michigan State?
We preview this on today's show!
