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...
