Badgers add in-state defensive end Luke Benzschawel

Borland recruiting loss stings, but not time to write off Paul Chryst and Co.

Tuf Borland was supposed to be wearing Cardinal and White — his dad was a Badger after all. Tristian Pipp was a shoo-in to be a Badger — after all, he’s from in-state and a legit three-star linebacker. Except neither of those two things have happened. Pipp, a two-sport star at Greenfield (Wis.) High School surprised a lot in Badger nation and in football recruiting circles...

VIDEO: BTN’s Gerry DiNardo talks with Badgers Paul Chryst

Paul Chryst has put the Wisconsin Badgers on the backseat of the national media, and that shouldn’t surprise anyone that knows his use for the media in general. Let’s just say Paul Chryst doesn’t much care what the media has to say or wants to do. He tolerates the guys and gals who ask the questions, answers as politely as possible and goes on his way. So, when an extended...

We all know the world of college football recruiting keeps getting more ridiculous by the year, but you can bet the Wisconsin Badgers aren’t going to go as crazy as the rest of the folks in the CFB world.

Chargers Draftee Melvin Gordon Knocked Northwestern During Interview At NFL Draft

Boom or Bust: Looking Back at Wisconsin Badgers 2011 recruiting class

Everyone knows the lifeblood of any program comes on the recruiting trail, but getting players on campus and to sign on the dotted line is a far cry from meaning success or failure. The other half of the equation is how the recruiting class plays once on campus.
