JOEL STAVE RUMORS & GOSSIP

MADISON, Wis. -- At his lowest moment, when the one skill he performed better than anybody had inexplicably abandoned him and jumbled his mind, Joel Stave stood alone inside Wisconsin's football practice facility.

But only one could win, and -- as has been the case for a decade now -- Wisconsin once again prevailed. No. 14 Wisconsin came back from a two-touchdown deficit to beat No. 18 Minnesota 34-24 at Camp Randall Stadium in...

Wisconsin football: solving the Badgers QB problem

When I heard a month ago that the Wisconsin Badgers were leaning towards using a two quarterback system I thought a cruel joke was being played on me.  Since the graduation of Russell Wilson in 2012, the quarterback play has been inconsistent at best for Wisconsin football.   Following the loss to Northwestern, after abysmal quarterback play from both Joel Stave and Tanner McEvoy...

Wisconsin 52, Maryland 7: Joel Stave makes case to be Badgers full time QB

Wisconsin came in to the last two games and three weeks wanting to play a two-quarterback system. However, Joel Stave had other designs on Saturday against Maryland. The junior quarterback made an emphatic statement in the Badgers’ 52-7 win over the Terps, perhaps cementing himself as the one guy we’ll see behind center from here on out. It was a game out of nowhere, considering...

Wisconsin football: What went wrong in loss to Northwestern

Joel Stave replaced a struggling Tanner McEvoy but did not play much better in Wisconsin’s 20-14 loss to Northwestern in Evanston. McEvoy completed four of 10 passes for 24 yards and an interception, while Stave threw 19 passes, completing eight, for 114 yards with a touchdown and three interceptions.

Wisconsin's Stave not shying away from QB competition

MADISON, Wis. -- The way Joel Stave sees it, this whole quarterback competition to begin Wisconsin's fall football camp is old hat. What hasn't he seen as he enters his third straight season in a battle to be the Badgers' starter? How much more mentally prepared can he really be? There is, of course, a fair amount of pressure that comes with trying to be the No. 1 signal-caller anyway...
