    Badgers 3-0 with sophomore at helm

    He’s just the fill-in point guard for the University of Wisconsin men’s basketball team.

    We're talking Giannis Antetokounmpo taking the next step for the Milwaukee Bucks. A new stadium in Milwaukee.

    We also hit on Mike McCarthy relinquishing play-call duties for the Green Bay Packers, and whether that's a good thing for 2014's No. 1-scoring offense.
