MADISON, Wis. -- First thing's first: Tanner McEvoy would like to let it be known that he's still a quarterback.
He just isn't a quarterback right now.
"Every position has different ups and downs," he said. "But I love playing quarterback. I'm still going to try it when this is all good."
"This" is a broken bone in his left wrist, which made his task even more difficult. McEvoy broke his scaphoid, a small bone at the base of his left thumb, during the team's second scrimmage of fall practice while playing quarterback. Although he underwent surgery to insert a screw nearly three weeks ago, he still wears a small cast on the wrist for safety measures.
The injury prevented him from being able to take snaps under center, though he was clearly behind quarterbacks Joel Stave and Curt Phillips at that point. He briefly moved to wide receiver, but catching passes with a bum wrist wasn't exactly easy, either.
So now, just two months ...

MADISON, Wis. -- They have not developed a clever moniker. No "Smash and Dash" or "Thunder and Lightning." Nose guards don't garner much publicity anyway, so Wisconsin's Beau Allen and Warren Herring are fine keeping it that way.
"We'll talk about it," Herring said. "I don't know. I don't have a nickname yet."
Wisconsin football coach Gary Andersen spoke with the media Tuesday morning on the Big Ten's weekly coaches teleconference following his team's game against Ohio State. The Badgers have a bye week and will return to action Oct. 12 with a home game against Northwestern.
Andersen discussed the health status of running back Melvin Gordon and center Dallas Lewallen, along with...
All Chris Borland wanted out of high school was a chance. Coming out of Archbishop Alter high school in Kettering, Ohio, was an undersized linebacker at 5-11 and 217 lbs. Of the 119 Division I-A teams in the NCAA, only one team offered him a scholarship, the Wisconsin Badgers. Barry Alvarez and Bret Bielema (now head coach at Arkansas) gave Chris Borland that chance.
Our weekly look at how Wisconsin ran and passed, this time vs. Ohio State as well as for the season.
Trends are certainly developing five game in. For one, Wisconsin has been more effective running to the right (a Twitter follower suggested this is because RT Rob Havenstein is good at blocking to his left and LG Ryan Groy excels at pulling). Also, Jared Abbrederis is getting 44.6...
(Eds: With AP Photos.) By GENARO C. ARMAS AP Sports Writer Wisconsin running back Melvin Gordon walked the sideline with his typical gait, as if he were taking a breather following another long touchdown.
The Big Ten's leading rusher looked this week like he was over an apparent left knee injury that came from a hit last week against Ohio State, and that he'd be ready to...
MADISON, Wis. – The Wisconsin football team will take part in ‘Shave to Save’ on Thursday, Oct. 3 at noon in the UW locker room. A number of UW football players, including WR Jared Abbrederis, LG Ryan Groy and TE Jacob Pedersen, will have their heads shaved to raise awareness and funding for childhood cancer research at the American Family Children’s Hospital.
(Eds: With AP Photos.) By BENJAMIN WORGULL Associated Press Heading into the first of two bye weeks during October, Wisconsin coach Gary Andersen has a long to-do list to try to get his football team on track.
After the developmental work and having his staff spend the weekend recruiting, getting his team healthy is next in line.
''We'll get them healthy,''...
With the Wisconsin Badgers on a bye week it seems appropriate to reflect back on the first portion of the season.
As the old adage goes, “you don’t know where you’re going until you know where you’ve been.”
Here’s a look at each of the Badgers first five opponents and a projection of what bowl game they could end up in.
1.) UMass (0-4)
Result vs. Wisconsin Badgers:...
He came to Wisconsin wanting to compete for the starting quarterback spot, but sophomore Tanner McEvoy is currently making his impact as a Badgers safety, making four tackles against No.4 Ohio State Saturday.
The Wisconsin Badgers, as voted upon by the B1G coaches, were chosen as the preseason favorite for the inaugural B1G hockey conference. Not much of surprise, since the Badgers return nine seniors and seven juniors after reaching the NCAA tournament last year. The Minnesota Gophers were voted to finish second, with Michigan slotted for third, Michigan State and Ohio State projected...
