JOEL STAVE RUMORS & GOSSIP

Badgers QB Stave takes the lead in first start of season

MADISON, Wis. -- Joel Stave insisted he showed up to Camp Randall Stadium on Saturday morning with no real idea as to how much he would be used. Stave and teammate Tanner McEvoy had spent the week splitting repetitions at quarterback with the first-team offense, and they seemed to be as mystified as anybody else about what Saturday would bring. Once kickoff arrived, Stave trotted...

Andersen going 2 quarterbacks, but success depends on play calling

Wisconsin trotted Joel Stave out for the first time this season during the second quarter against Northwestern, and immediately the questions about who starts, who plays when and if there’s a controversy began. Stave going 8-of-19 for 114 yards, one touchdown and three interceptions didn’t really clear up matters all that much, considering he was brought in to prop up the passing...

Badgers QB problems actually start with O-Line

Wisconsin didn’t have much going for it on Saturday afternoon in Evanston, Ill., so much so that Gary Andersen made the switch at quarterback. Joel Stave played for the majority of the game, and the results weren’t much better than what McEvoy was doing before being pulled.  It would be easy to blame Stave and McEvoy for the four picks, the lack of consistent play at quarterback...

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.

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...

Joel Stave focusing on improving footwork, accuracy

MADISON, Wis. -- Joel Stave would like to make it clear he isn't a perfectionist. Except that, after pausing for a few seconds to think about it, he decides that, yeah, maybe he is. "Kind of I guess," Stave said with a smile after Tuesday's practice. Wisconsin's starting quarterback has set high goals for himself -- sometimes so high that they might not even...
