>>Brewers Manager Not Saying Who Starts Friday — Officially

(Milwaukee, WI)  —  Milwaukee Brewers manager Craig Counsell tells reporters he doesn’t have a name for them yet when he’s asked about a game-one starting pitcher.  Counsell hasn’t officially named a starter for Friday’s first game of the National League Championship Series.  Most observers think Jhoulys Chacin will get the start, but Counsell could choose to go with a “bullpen game,” just like he did to start the series against Colorado.  Oddsmakers have chosen Milwaukee as the long shot to take the World Series title — one betting house putting their odds at four-to-one against.  Friday’s game starts at 7:09 P-M.


>>Wisconsin Badgers Football Class Of 2019 Taking Shape

(Madison, WI)  —  Even in the middle of the season, college football teams are busy recruiting high school athletes.  Linebacker J-D Bertrand of Georgia has announced he’s been offered a scholarship by the Wisconsin Badgers.  Websites like Rivals and 247Sports designate him as a four-star recruit.  The Badgers have received a verbal commitment from three-star recruit Spencer Lytle, an outside linebacker and another linebacker, Jared Casey, is expected to announce his decision today (Thursday), with Wisconsin one of his possible destinations.


>>Clinton-Dix:  ‘I Don’t Think I’m Going To Be Here Next Year”

(Green Bay, WI)  —  Safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix is hoping for a long-term deal with the Packers at the end of the 2018 season, but he’s not counting on it.  Clinton-Dix is off to a strong start with an N-F-L-leading three interceptions.  Pro Football Focus gives him the seventh-best grade among all safeties in the league.  He says he’s playing every game as if it’s his last.  He tells reporters he has to be honest with himself and that means he doesn’t think he’s going to be in Green Bay next season.


>>Coach Bud’s Motion Offense May Help Bucks Realize Offensive Potential

(Milwaukee, WI)  —  The Milwaukee Bucks’ offense was rated in the top-seven in the N-B-A last year, but the team is hoping the best is yet to come.  New coach Mike Budenholzer’s motion offense, driven by more three-point shots, may unleash the athletic potential of the Bucks young players.  Milwaukee fans know they will see more of the pick-and-roll and they hope superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo can exploit the floor spacing the offense should create.  The Bucks open the regular season six days from tonight (October 17th) at Charlotte.
