Wisconsin kicker Kyle French handles demotion in unique fashion

MADISON, Wis. -- Kyle French will never know whether things would have turned out differently if he'd only made that 38-yard field-goal attempt two Saturdays ago against Northwestern. He'll be left to wonder if one single kick that sailed wide left doomed his career as Wisconsin's starting kicker. He will admit his demotion was partially due to a culmination of misfires...

Badgers struggling kicker French won't return to team

MADISON, Wis. -- Kyle French lost more than his starting kicking job when he missed a 38-yard field goal wide left against Northwestern last week. Apparently, he also will lose his scholarship. French, a redshirt junior from Menomonee Falls, Wis., posted on his Facebook page Thursday night that he would not be back with the team for his senior season. "I want to personally...

Kyle French announces departure from Badgers program after this season

Last week the Badger faithful saw Kyle French miss a 38-yard field goal attempt against Northwestern.

Wisconsin Football: Doing the little things wrong

For each of the past few seasons, it just seemed as though Wisconsin couldn’t catch a break. Apparent bad luck and bad timing characterized each of the several close losses of the past few years. They say football is a game of inches, and the Badgers always seemed to be a few inches short. Yet Saturday’s loss to No. 4 Ohio State demonstrated that for all the heartbreak, Wisconsin...

Badgers starting kicker for Saturday still up in the air

MADISON, Wis. -- If there is one thing Kyle French has learned from his yearlong starting kicker battle with Jack Russell, it's that thinking on the field -- about mechanics, crowd noise, game situation, anything -- is never good. Thinking about losing a starting spot? That's even worse. This week, as French and Russell continue a seemingly endless competition to take over...

Badgers kicker Kyle French in far better frame of mind at 2013 season's outset

MADISON, Wis. -- The Kyle French of last year would probably still be seething about missing a 38-yard field goal attempt wide right in practice on Thursday. He would agonize over his form, wonder if he would make the next one, compare his statistics to teammate Jack Russell and fear he might lose his starting spot. In short, he would be so deep inside his own head that he'd...

QB Battle Over, But Is Kicker Battle Heating Up?

The news of Danny O'Brien winning the starting quarterback job probably came as little to no surprise to anyone, but the other bit of news coming out of Badgers camp this weekend probably does surprise a few people and that news is there is a real battle going on at the Kicker spot. A lot of people (myself included) assumed that Kyle French had the starking place kicking duties...
