Packers vs. Bears.

The Packers added some depth to their defensive line heading into this weekend’s game with the Bears.  CJ Wilson’s injured knee isn’t improving and Green Bay was stuck with just 4 defensive linemen on Sunday against the Lions.  Ted Thompson moved Jordan Miller up from the practice squad.  He spent last season with the Bears and was signed to the Packers practice squad earlier in the season.  The Bears have placed kicker Robbie Gould in season ending injured reserve and signed veteran Olindo Mare


No Saint Suspensions

Former NFL Commissioner Paul Tagliabue, who was asked to review the New Orleans Saints bounty suspensions, has decided that the players shouldn’t have been suspended for their role in paying out money to knock opposing players out of games.  Suspensions and fines for the Saints franchise and head coach Sean Payton stand.


Ash to Arkansas

Bret Bielema is taking the Badgers co-defensive coordinator Chris Ash with him to Arkansas.  Ash will be the defensive coordinator for the Razorbacks.  He will stay with the Badgers through the Rose Bowl on January 1st.


Ball AP All-American

Badgers running back Montee Ball has been named first team Associated Press All-American for the 2nd straight year.  You have to go back to the 1941 and 1942 seasons to find the last time a Badger was named AP First Team All-American in back to back years when end Dave Shreiner was honored.


Alvarez Rose Bowl Pay

Badger Athletic Director Barry Alvarez will be paid $118,500 to coach the team in the Rose Bowl on January 1st.  If the Badgers beat Stanford he will get another $50,000.  Money to pay Alvarez will come out of the $1 million dollar buyout Arkansas had to pay to allow Bret Bielema to break his contract with UW.


Badger Hoops on KFIZ

The Wisconsin Badgers host UW-Green Bay tonight at the Kohl Center.  Coverage begins at 7pm with the tip set for 8pm on KFIZ.
