Brust leading Badgers on the glass

MADISON, Wis. The reasons for Ben Brust's dramatic increase in rebounding totals this season aren't entirely clear. Maybe it's more assertiveness as an upperclassman.

Two Commits added to Wisconsin's 2013 class

With all the news of conference expansion a little nugget of football recruiting has gotten lost in the shuffle, Wisconsin has added added two more recruits to their 2013 class.

Sunday Morning Hangover: Badgers Coming Close Just Isn't Good Enough Anymore

(photo courtesy M.P. King - Wisconsin State Journal) As painful as it was to sit back and watch Wisconsin lose 21-14 in overtime to hated rivals Ohio State yesterday, it was even more painful to put myself through watching it a 2nd time on the good ole DVR. After watching things over once again there's only one conclusion that you can come to: Coming so close, yet losing...

Wisconsin routs Cornell 73-40
