The weather didn’t necessarily pan out for the 2012 Wisconsin Badgers Annual Spring Game, but that didn’t stop a few thousand people from coming out to Camp Randall to watch some of the team’s young stars.
Third-string running back Melvin Gordon stole the show with 30 rushing attempts for an impressive 159 yards. The future star Gordan helped lead the Cardinal squad to a 21-10 victory over the White squad.
- Arguably the two most recently talked about Badgers in the off-season weren’t even a part of the Spring Game.

- There were two touchdowns in the game. One from the redshirt freshman quarterback Joel Stave (14/25, 135 YDS, 1 TD and 1 INT) to redshirt sophomore wide-out Chase Hammond (4 REC, 48 YDS and 1 TD) for seven yards and the other coming on a Melvin Gordon two yard run.

One such person is now former Badger fullback Bradie Ewing, who's sitting beside the phone and tv waiting to see if he becomes the latest...
On Tuesday's edition of Badgers Power Hour Arman and myself talked about some of the things we'd be watching for on Saturday in the Spring football game and if you haven't checked that out already I highly suggest doing so as it's pretty in depth and player specific. However, things have been changing over this week with injuries, announcements, etc. involving...
After spending last year working as an outside linebacker on the Wisconsin defense's scout team, redshirt freshman Derek Watt has been moved to the center of UW's defense. After being one of the units top playmakers in two scrimmages, the move shows that Watt is a fast learner.
