Jeff's foray into radio is a relatively new career choice. He stepped up to the mic in 1995 as a fill-in host for another local radio station. Before he joined the ranks at WTMJ, most people recognized Jeff from his long and successful law career. He is a former federal prosecutor at the U.S. Attorney's Office for eleven and a half years where he was Head of the Organized Crime Task Force. In 1993, Jeff went into private practice and was also on the 1994 Republican candidate for State Attorney General.

Had Wisconsin won they would obviously be ranked ahead of a Spartans team with two losses. Instead, it's now a trip to Orlando. Here's how I see it shaking out:
The Packers began on-field preparation for the Atlanta Falcons Wednesday in Green Bay. As expected, quarterback Aaron Rodgers was a limited participant, and Matt Flynn took reps as the starter. After a perfect October, the Packers went winless in the month of November. In order to make the playoffs, they will likely need to win all four December games, and hope the Detroit Lions lose two of their final four.
