MADISON, Wis. Joel Stave may have the looks of a pretty boy, but he considers himself to be a tough guy. So don't be fooled when the Wisconsin quarterback admits to welling up with tears when he walked off the field Oct. 27 during the second half against Michigan State."As I passed my mom in the stands, she was kind of crying," Stave said. "That never helps."...

Wisconsin's Exhibition Victory over UW-Oshkosh
MADISON, Wis. Given the inexperience peppering Wisconsin's roster this season, there are sure to be nights when Badgers basketball coach Bo Ryan finds himself reaching for some Maalox to settle his stomach.Wednesday night, for the most part, was not one of those nights.No. 23 Wisconsin obliterated Division III UW-Oshkosh, 96-44, at the Kohl Center in the Badgers' lone exhibition...
Tonight a lot of the speculation and conjuncture finally can come to an end as fans will get their first real glimpse of what the 2012-13 Badgers are going to take to the court for a real game! Granted it's an exhibition game against D3 in-state foe Wisconsin-Oshkosh, but at least it's not someone on your own roster you'll be playing against.
Having said that, we...
Apologies to those following this countdown as I got a bit sidetracked on it but we're back today to look at #10 Senior Guard Dan Fahey. There's just 6 days left until the Badgers' season opener on Sunday!
Fahey has appeared in 17 games in his 3 year career at UW, including 9 last season. He's tallied up 23 minutes, 2 points and 8 rebounds in his career...
Amazingly we are just 5 days away from the start of the Badgers basketball season and tomorrow night is the exhibition game. All this means we are just Ryan Evans from things getting going and his play could be a key indicator of the season Wisconsin is about to have. He certainly was a key cog in last season's Sweet 16 run.
Evans was 2nd on the team last year in...
