Wisconsin-michigan
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 pundits wondered what the heck had happened.

Badgers want to impress Alvarez, Bielema

MADISON, Wis. The Arkansas football fan base revved like a high-powered car engine last week, so Bret Bielema was going to satiate its desires by stuffing the program full of compliments at his introductory news conference.

A double-digit margin certainly looks like the kind of advantage the Badgers should have had all game. It wasn't that easy. And given the supposed discrepancy in talent, size and athleticism, one has to wonder how Wisconsin should feel...

Badgers, Evans find spark in 65-44 win over Green Bay

Ryan Evans was in a massive funk entering the game against Green Bay and it was starting to affect the team, but on Wednesday night both the team and Evans broke out of that funk in a big way. His team high 13 points helped Wisconsin win by 11 points, 65-44. More importantly it was Evans getting out of the funk from the free throw line that helped spark this team as a whole. ...
