Badgers Football Update with Paul Noonan

We have our bi-weekly check-in with Paul Noonan who covers the Packers for the Shepherd Express, and Acme Packing company, and hosts the weekly podcasts Reporting as Eligible and Milwaukee’s Tailgate Podcast.

We talk about all the shake-ups happening with Badger Football – Wisconsin is the Big Ten’s No. 1 team to watch as the 2023 season inches closer. According to the new analysis from CBS Sports, “No team is going through a bigger overhaul than Wisconsin after coach Luke Fickell opted to move away from the power-run offense that has defined the program for decades. And he just might be onto something.”

And Mike Lucas – After more than 50 years covering Wisconsin Athletics, and 29 as the voice of Badger football and basketball, Mike Lucas is retiring. Lucas’ calls provided the soundtrack to five Big Ten football championships, including six Rose Bowls, as well as nine Big Ten basketball championships, including three Final Fours.

The Brewers lost another starting pitcher as Wade Miley had to leave his start early with a lat injury (never good) and they are really hurting. They also signed DH/1B Darin Ruf, who specializes in hitting lefties, which they really really need. 

And finally, Paul fills us in on what we need to know about Jonathan Owens (Mr. Biles) and what impact he could make for the Packers.

How Much Would You Spend on a Sick Pet?

Most people know that when they get a dog or cat, a big part of the pet’s expense will be routine veterinary care. On average, pet owners spend $235 per year in recurring medical costs for a dog and $160 for a cat, according to the ASPCA. But if a pet becomes ill or has an accident, those expenses can skyrocket.

Kristin retells the story of her sick pup, Cliff, as she and her husband shell out money to make sure he stays healthy and we ask you, how much are you willing to spend on your fur baby?
