The Victory Formation:
While so much attention was given to other job openings in college football over the past two weeks, the one surprising vacancy has had very little discussion, and that is the one in Madison. Following the sudden departure of Bret Bielema to Arkansas, the Badgers coaching search has been a quiet one. Of course, they [...]

AROUND THE WEB
It's always tough to know who's names are smokescreens and who's names aren't, but according to CBSSports.com's Jeremy Fowler the Badgers will be interviewing a familiar name to Badger fans, Oregon State's Mike Riley. According to the report Riley is expected to interview with Wisconsin yet this week.
Riley has a history of facing off with the Badgers...
Boy, oh boy... You've gotta love the silly season that is the Badgers coaching carousel, huh?. It's honestly getting sickening to see the sheer number of rumors, denials, and pure speculation. Honestly, it's hard to not bring you the maybe news and the actual news in regards to this situation. Why?
Well, when it was reported last night by CBSSports.com that Oregon...
CORVALLIS -- So, about that report that said Mike Riley would interview with Wisconsin by cbssports.com? The head man of the Beavs just threw some cold water on the idea following Oregon State's Friday practice in preparations for the Alamo Bowl. Here's what Riley had to say...
CORVALLIS -- While much attention was dedicated to the reports surrounding Mike Riley and Wisconsin’s head coaching gig, there was also an actual practice that took place. And as Oregon State prepares to take on Texas in the Alamo Bowl on Dec. 29, Mike Riley looked like he was having the time of his life on Friday calling the plays for the Beaver offense.
Looking for just the third head coach at Wisconsin football since 1990, news surfaced late Thursday that Oregon State head coach Mike Riley will be interviewing for the Badgers opening this week. We have the latest on what we're hearing on Riley and other options at Wisconsin.
MADISON, Wis. Expectations for Wisconsin's offensive capabilities formed well before the Badgers took the football field for their first game of the season. The majority of opinions seemed to suggest that, though Wisconsin had lost five players to the NFL, enough talent remained to avoid a considerable drop-off in scoring.
Then, the season began in disarray, and those same...
MADISON, Wis. Travis Frederick grew up as an offensive lineman in Wisconsin, which is to say he knew he wanted to be a Badgers player from a young age. Young enough to have seen Barry Alvarez coach from afar.
When Frederick, a New Sharon, Wis., native, committed to play for Wisconsin, he never thought that commitment would include the opportunity to play for Alvarez, too.
Whomever the new Wisconsin head coach is, it's looking increasingly like he'll have to bring on a bit of his own guys at the very least as Tom Mulhern of the Wisconsin State Journal is reporting tonight that Badgers wide receivers coach Zach Azzanni is taking the same position with Tennessee.
Azzanni will coach the Badgers through the Rose Bowl, according to the report...
Replacing an offensive catalyst
With senior wideout Markus Wheaton headed to the NFL draft this spring, Oregon State will have a huge void to fill on its depth chart.
Since his junior season, Wheaton has been the Beaver’s go-to receiver on offense. He led the team with 986 yards and 73 catches in 2011, while averaging 13.5 yards per catch.
