>>Jordy Nelson: Criticisms Of Rodgers “Comical” (Green Bay, WI) — Oakland wide receiver Jordy Nelson is sticking up for his former quarterback. Several players have trashed All-Pro Aaron Rodgers recently, with former Green Bay tight end Jermichael Finley saying he is self-centered and former defensive end Kabeer Gbaja-Biamila calling Rodgers “arrogant.” Nelson says he thinks it’s comical to read the comments and he thinks the guys were just seeking attention. Nelson says there are hundreds of former teammates who know number-12 is a leader. Nelson says Rodgers just expects his teammates to practice well and he is demanding when they don’t.

>>Golden Eagles, Badgers Have Winning Weekend (Providence, RI) — Both Marquette and Wisconsin picked up important victories on the road Saturday.
