Found October 31, 2013 on College Spun:
Wisconsin running backs James White and Melvin Gordon form a pretty dynamic duo, both on and off the field. A few days ago we showed you them dressed up as Power Rangers while visiting kids with the Badgers Childhood Cancer Network — now it’s time to share some more of their good work. This time, the pair is spreading cheer with their dance moves — their touchdown celebration dance moves. Wisconsin athletics has put together a humorous video about the “new dance trend” that is taking the world by storm:

Not starting, sixth-year QB Curt Phillips makes best of situation

MADISON, Wis. -- The notebook fills a little more each week, useful tidbits only Curt Phillips understands. He can't know just yet, but it could represent the start of something big for his second football life -- even as his first sputters toward the finish line. No, this is not the season Phillips envisioned for himself when he returned to the University of Wisconsin after...

Melvin Gordon talks about de-committing from Hawkeyes

Wisconsin star Melvin Gordon was once committed to Iowa. With the Hawkeyes on the schedule in Week 10, the Badgers running back discusses making the switch.

Wisconsin LB Chris Borland sits out practice

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Linebacker Chris Borland has missed a second day of practice for No. 22 Wisconsin as he recovers from a strained right hamstring. Coach Gary Andersen said earlier this week that he expected his star senior to be ready for Saturday's game at Iowa. Defensive coordinator Dave Aranda said Wednesday that Borland was held out as a precaution, and that the team...

Wisconsin's Gordon returns to face Iowa

Wisconsin running back Melvin Gordon nearly went to Iowa. The Hawkeyes will soon get to see what they missed out on. Gordon, a sophomore who verbally committed to Iowa before joining the 22nd-ranked Badgers (5-2, 3-1 Big Ten), has emerged as the nation's most productive running back heading into Saturday's game in Iowa City. Gordon has run for 1,012 yards on 9.5 yards...

Emotions will run high for UW's Melvin Gordon at Iowa

MADISON, Wis. -- Mean-spirited mail tends to be anonymous, so Melvin Gordon has no idea exactly who sent him letters last season. He does know those people fit a certain disposition -- fanatical nuts whose rooting interests leaned heavily in the direction of Iowa football. In those letters, Gordon would read comparisons between his statistics and that of Iowa running back Mark Weisman...

Badgers roll Platteville in exhibition, leave room for improvement

The Badgers rolled Bo Ryan's former employer, Wisconsin-Platteville, 81-50, in the lone exhibition game for Wisconsin on Wednesday night.  However, it wasn't all sunshine and roses for the Badgers as they struggled in some areas before using a late 1st half surge to start pulling away.  Defensively, the Badgers struggled in the 1st half and led just 20-18 before  a...

Badgers showcase new faces, depth in exhibition win

MADISON, Wis. -- Question marks abound this time of year for college basketball programs across the country because October intra-squad practices can only reveal so much. That's why No. 21 Wisconsin's 80-51 exhibition victory against UW-Platteville, though it won't officially count for anything, was so important Wednesday night at the Kohl Center -- it signified a step...

Gary Andersen: A lot of respect for Iowa

Wisconsin football coach Gary Andersen spoke with the media Tuesday morning on the Big Ten's weekly coaches teleconference ahead of the Badgers' game against Iowa. Andersen discussed the importance of players understanding the Iowa rivalry, the improvement of Wisconsin's wide receivers, the effectiveness of Melvin Gordon on jet sweeps and James White's role with the...

Gordon, Borland named award semifinalists

You must be doing something right as a team when you get an offensive and defensive player named semifinalists for postseason awards.  That's exactly what happened on Tuesday as Melvin Gordon was named to the Maxwell Award semifinalist list and Chris Borland was named a semifinalist for the Bednarik award.  Both of those awards happen to be pretty major, with the Maxwell...

Gasser's return adds to solid Wisconsin backcourt

Josh Gasser's legs are gradually coming back on the court, though the Wisconsin guard's upper body is probably as strong as ever. The Badgers are easing Gasser back from a left knee injury that knocked him out for all of the 2012-13 campaign. But the combo guard's return is a welcome sight for coach Bo Ryan. ''The Big Ten is such a physical conference,'...

Game Recap: Exhibiting their Potential

Senior guard Ben Brust scored a game-high 20 points and sophomore forward Sam Dekker added 13, as Wisconsin out scored Platteville by 22 in the second half to earn a 80-51 victory at the Kohl Center.
