Barry Alvarez is calling it a career at the University of Wisconsin, and Good Karma Brands is sending the legendary figure out on a high note. ESPN Milwaukee and ESPN Madison are both broadcasting “Barry Week” up through Friday afternoon.

“Barry Week” is airing from 12-2 p.m. CT every day this week with five different shows slated at the stations airing throughout the coming days.

Monday kicks off with the “Coaches of Barry” show hosted by Greg Scalzo and Ben Brust, interviewing coaches Greg Gard, Paul Chryst, Bret Bielema, and Paula Wilkins. Tuesday is highlighted by “Coverage of Barry” hosted by Jason Wilde with guests that covered Barry, such as Mike Lucas, Tom Oates, and more.

Wednesday brings the “Business of Barry” hosted by Craig Karmazin with guests such as former-AD Pat Richter, Wheels Up CEO Kenny Dichter, and Ted Kellner. Thursday is the “Players of the Barry” hosted by former Badgers, and ESPN Wisconsin hosts Mark Tauscher, Tarek Saleh, and Derek Engler. Guests on the players’ show include running back Ron Dayne, Brooks Bollinger, and Lee Evans. Friday wraps up with the “Barry Interview” a two-hour sit down with Alvarez, Craig Karmazin, and Mark Tauscher.

Alvarez and Wisconsin Athletics go together like peanut butter and jelly. Alvarez has spent over 30 years as a football coach and athletic director. The face of Wisconsin football from 1990-2005, Alvarez leaves a lasting legacy on the gridiron. He led the Badgers to three Big Ten titles, three Rose Bowl victories, and coached one of the school’s two Heisman Trophy winners in Dayne. Alvarez hung up the whistle as one of 16 football coaches in Big Ten history to win at least 100 games at one school.

One of the most prominent faces in college sports gets the send-off he deserves from Good Karma Brands. Check it out all week on ESPN Milwaukee and Madison.

The United States has been eliminated from the 2022 World Cup, and FOX Sports Radio host Doug Gottlieb believes that will return the sport back to its usual place inside the sports media landscape.

“I’m sure people in the soccer world are still talking about the World Cup,” Gottlieb said on his In The Bonus podcast Monday. “But zero people I know in real life are talking about the World Cup today.

“You can tell me how big soccer is in the world — and I’m not gonna dispute it — and you can tell me we’re doing better in the world than we’ve ever done — and I’m not gonna dispute it, it’s fine — but the fact is that as soon as that match was over we went from a couple of hours of soccer guy, or writer guy who’s really a soccer guy at heart, talking about should we change coaches, tactics, players, or whatever, and then it’s over. I don’t know who won and I don’t care.”

Gottlieb later added that soccer has been “the sport of the future” for his entire life, but added that college basketball is going on right now, and it isn’t on the national sports radar, either.

94WIP afternoon host Jon Marks has revealed he is working without a contract.

A report from CrossingBroad.com claims Marks mentioned the development on the air two weeks ago, and Marks confirmed the news when the outlet asked him for comment.

He did not, however, wish to say much more about the situation. WIP is currently in the midst of changes to its lineup due to the upcoming departure of legendary morning host Angelo Cataldi.

In late October, the station announced the current midday show of Joe DeCamara and Jon Ritchie would replace Cataldi in the mornings. Longtime morning co-host Al Morganti will remain with the station but will no longer be heard in mornings once DeCamara and Ritchie take over. Anchor Rhea Hughes will stay in the morning timeslot.

The station has yet to name a new midday show to replace DeCamara and Ritchie. Marks is currently teamed with former NFL linebacker Ike Reese from 2:00-6:00 PM. The two were paired together in 2017.

Monday Night Football got off to an energetic start last night, with the usually reserved Joe Buck showcasing an exuberant attitude while discussing the weather and the fact that the calendar has already flipped to December. WFAN morning host Boomer Esiason wondered if there was an ulterior motive to Buck’s raucous start.

In addition to the energy exuded by the Monday Night Football announcer, Buck nearly howeld in excitement as the network showcased Tom Brady’s usual scream of “Let’s F—ing Go!”, by shouting “Yeah! Let’s go! I can’t say one of those words!”

The excitement was noticed by Boomer & Gio update anchor Jerry Recco who played the audio for the show, with Boomer Esiason wondering if Buck was proving a point to someone.

“Maybe somebody told him he was too downcast the previous broadcast,” Esiason wondered. “Maybe he was doing that emphatically because somebody criticized him as flat or something.”
