JOEL STAVE RUMORS & GOSSIP

McEvoy making impact with feet at quarterback

MADISON, Wis. -- On the surface, some Wisconsin fans may consider Tanner McEvoy's season as a Badgers quarterback to be something less than satisfactory. How could the team's quarterback of the future, they will ask, throw more interceptions than touchdowns and lose his starting job after only five games? Questions about McEvoy's passing skills are a legitimate concern, and he has...

Badgers report card: Nail-biter a learning experience

Quarterback Joel Stave never has been known for his wheels. But when it mattered most on Saturday, Stave scrambled for the game-clinching 12-yard run during Wisconsin's 26-24 victory against Iowa in Kinnick Stadium. Stave's slide certainly left something to be desired -- he was crushed near midfield and flipped over at the knees. But no one can question his toughness. And...

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. Here are some reasons why the No. 16 Badgers did not snap the trend of falling...

Alvarez sees Joel Stave saga as overblown

Full on damage control, or brutal honesty? Considering what took place from Saturday night to Tuesday night, it’s telling that Wisconsin athletic director Barry Alvarez had to come out and speak to the media to quell some of the firestorm building up.  On Wednesday, Alvarez spoke to Andy Baggot of the Wisconsin State Journal about the last of a PR nightmare — the Joel Stave...

What's wrong with Wisconsin QB Joel Stave?

Just when you thought things couldn’t get any more frustrating/bizarre for Wisconsin Badgers football fans, a confounding situation involving quarterback Joel Stave unfolded Tuesday. In the morning, Wisconsin officials announced that Stave would be out indefinitely with an injury in his throwing shoulder. This seemed to make sense, considering how many questioned head coach Gary...

Wisconsin QB Joel Stave Is Out Indefinitely Because He Has ‘The Yips’

Joel Stave started all 13 games for the Wisconsin Badgers in 2013, throwing for nearly 2,500 yards and 22 touchdowns. So it was a bit of a surprise when Stave sat out the team’s 2014 opener, a 28-24 loss to LSU. A few days later, Badgers head coach Gary Anderson appeared to have the answer, revealing that Stave would be shut down indefinitely because of an injury to his throwing...

Gary Andersen And Joel Stave Say That The Quarterback Is Not Injured, Wisconsin Continues To Be Confounding

Joel Stave and Tanner McEvoy.(Twitter/@BTNTomDienhart) Over the weekend, there was a ton of confusion over Melvin Gordon’s lack of touches in the second half. Head coach Gary Andersen and Gordon seemed to be out of sync in terms of the issue, and now it looks like Andersen is having similar communication breakdowns when it comes to quarterback Joel Stave.  Previously, Andersen...

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...
