The greatest sports weekend ever in Wisconsin? It's hard to imagine anything better than what took place as October opened. The Brewers began their quest for the World Series by beating Arizona twice at Miller Park. The Badgers welcomed Nebraska...

As the Brewers have snapped out of their slump and moved their Magic Number below five, they're competing for attention and fans with the other major sports in the state: the Packers and the Badgers. While the Magic Number countdown has made it to the upper corner on the front page of the J-S and Miller Brewery has started projecting images supporting the team on their I-House, the tallest buildin...

Much like the NFC Championship game, Special Teams are going to be an important part of the game. The Packers were able to win the field position battle against Chicago (when no one thought they would/could) and they need to carry that momentum into the big game. And while they won the battle by neutralizing Devin Hester, they still didn't manage to put together much on their own returns. The lack...
