Found September 20, 2012 on Madtown Badgers:
Before we dive into the issues and things we'd like to see on Saturday, I had the chance to do some talking with the enemy for Saturday as I was a guest on the Miner Rush podcast "The Rush" so, make sure to give it a listen for info on our opponents and also for what I had to say about Wisconsin there. It's something new once again for the Camp Randall crowd as we'll see our first 11am Central kick off on Saturday morning, so I'm sure we won't see the Student Section fill up till about the start of the 2nd quarter, 'cause you know drinking your face off for 24 hours is more important than watching the team you've paid good money for and all. But, I digress. Once again we find Wisconsin having a ton of questions to answer and of course we all want to know the actual answer to the burning question - who will be our starting QB? (We've said Stave all along since Saturday and reports say we were right, but nothing from the man that ma...

Badgers desperately seeking takeaways

MADISON, Wis. It's not a stretch to suggest the measuring stick for any great defense can be found in its ability to force turnovers. Causing momentum-swinging mistakes lead to points and quickly flip a game on its side. At Wisconsin, creating turnovers has been a staple of the team's success in recent seasons. Over the past two years, the Badgers have ranked among the national...

Could Abbrederis be True Key to Badgers Success?

It's the classic trick - put an object in one hand and keep everyone looking at it while the other is doing something completely different.

Wisconsin Badgers vs. UTEP: Brutally Honest Preview

Will the Badgers (2-1) head  coach, Bret Bielema, go with redshirt freshman Joel Stave or stick with the experienced Danny O’Brien?
