>>Pair Of Packers On Short List For Pro Football Hall Of Fame
(Canton, OH) — A pair of Green Bay Packers are on the shortlist for the Pro Football Hall of Fame Class of 2021. Charles Woodson and LeRoy Butler were among the semifinalists announced Tuesday. Butler has been a semi-finalist four times while Woodson was eligible for the first time. He played for the Packers from 2006-to-2012. He also starred for the Oakland Raiders in an 18-year career. Butler had 38 interceptions in a 12-year NFL career – all with the Packers. The list of 25 semi-finalists will be cut to 15 in January. Woodson and quarterback Peyton Manning are considered to be locks to make the Hall on their first ballot.
>>Talent-Filled 2021 Major League Baseball Draft Coming Up
(Milwaukee, WI) — The Milwaukee Brewers need to stock up their farm system, making it likely they will hang on to their competitive balance draft pick. They traded it off that last two years, getting reliever Alex Claudio and catcher Omar Narvaez in return. The 2021 Major League Baseball Draft is full of talent after this year’s five-round draft. Claudio has never performed for the Brewers as he did with the Rangers and though Narvaez is a good receiver, his hitting was non-existent. It’s okay to trade the pick, but if all it brings back is a non-tender candidate like Claudio and Narvaez, the team may decide to use it to draft a future big-league player who can be developed.
>>Games Canceled For Football, Women’s Basketball
(Minneapolis, MN) — The battle For Paul Bunyan’s ax will not be played this weekend due to COVID-19 cases at the University of Minnesota. Gopher athletics is pausing all team-related activities and Saturday’s game at Wisconsin will be ruled a no contest. Nine players and six staff members have tested positive in the past five days, and there were additional “presumptive” positive results Tuesday. Athletic Director Mark Coyle says the goal is “to be healthy enough and ready to compete on December 5th against Northwestern.” Meanwhile, the season opener for Badger women’s basketball was supposed to be played tonight (Wednesday), but it’s off. The Miami Redhawks canceled due to “protocols related to COVID-19.” The Badgers opener will now be Sunday against Western Illinois.
>>Wisconsin Men’s Basketball Hosts Eastern Illinois To Start Season
(Madison, WI) — With seven players from last season’s rotation ready to go again, the Wisconsin men’s basketball team has high hopes for this season. The action starts tonight (Wednesday) against Eastern Illinois. The Badgers will have a chance to prove their high ranking early in the season when they take on Marquette December 4th and Louisville five days later. Marquette is hosting Arkansas-Pine Bluff tonight at the Fiserv Forum. The Badgers are riding an eight-game winning streak now, although the last time they played was in March. Tipoff at the Kohl Center is set for 9:00 p-m. Wisconsin won the last meeting with the Panthers a year ago, 65-52.
