Wheelwright looks to be 'the guy' at WR for Badgers this season

MADISON, Wis. -- The days of Rob Wheelwright claiming inexperience, wide-eyed from the immense speed and expanded playbook of college football are over. He is a sophomore now, a full year as a travel squad member under his belt. And for a player with his talent level, there's no more time for excuses. The reality of Wisconsin's wide receiver situation is this: Not a single...

Video: Wisconsin’s Gary Andersen Uses Trivia Game To Surprise Walk-On With A Scholarship

While they don’t always get talked about, college football walk-ons are absolutely vital to a program’s success. While they may rarely, if ever, see the field, their contributions in practice are key, and teams with good walk-on programs have the benefit of added depth that others don’t. When a coach is able to put a hard-working walk-on on scholarship, it is always a great...

Deal learns from past Badgers RBs, looks to create own legacy

MADISON, Wis. -- The first thing that's noticeable on the football field about Taiwan Deal is the number, screen-printed in big blocks across his chest. Plenty of talented Wisconsin players have left their mark on the program, and the Badgers can't just go retiring numbers every time someone sets a team record or plays in the NFL. But No. 28? Worn so soon by another running...

After three ACL tears, ex-RB Jackson competing for spot at safety

MADISON, Wis. -- When Vonte Jackson says his body feels good these days, it is a statement that should not go overlooked. For a player that hasn't made it past the first game in any of his last three football seasons, this is considered big news. First came the tear in his left anterior cruciate ligament as a high school senior during Kenosha Bradford's season opener against...

Wisconsin's Sam Dekker got pretty jacked this offseason

For most college basketball players, much of the offseason is spent in the weight room. This is apparently especially true of Wisconsin forward Sam Dekker.  Dekker, who averaged 12.4 points and 6.1 rebounds a game as a sophomore last season, checked in at 6-foot-8, 220 pounds in 2013-14. He’s gotten bigger and, most likely, a lot stronger.  #Badgers Summer conditioning is in...

The Wisconsin Badgers men’s basketball team will go in to the 2014-15 season as one of the most talked about teams in the country.

Wisconsin Badgers quarterback battle befuddling even the media?

The Wisconsin Badgers coaching staff did something we haven’t seen in some time around Camp Randall last week, splitting the 105-man squad in to two different groups for practices over the first week of camp. It led to the media only seeing one-half of the picture at most during the first week, yet that didn’t stop most from speculating on who will or is winning the starting...

Wisconsin Badgers football: Sleep on passing attack at your own risk?

There’s no doubt that the first, second and third things most people think about surrounding Wisconsin Badgers football revolve around the running game. After all, Melvin Gordon is earning preseason accolades seemingly every day and the Badgers have turned out 1,000-yard rushers like the state produces milk. Combine those things with the loss of one of the top wide receivers in...

Badgers running thin on bodies, does it hurt preparations for LSU?

The Wisconsin Badgers haven’t been lucky with injuries to key players over the past year, and that trend has continued through fall camp. According to Jeff Potrykus of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, the Badgers’ 18th practice of the season saw a dozen players sitting out with various injuries. While 12 players on a 105-man roster may not seem like a lot, one look at the list...

Friday Night lights haven’t hit Wisconsin high schools just yet, but on Friday night the Wisconsin Badgers football coaching staff had a late night of its own, celebrating a new member of the class of 2015. That’s because 3-star offensive lineman Kevin Estes was making his collegiate choice and Wisconsin was among the frontrunners for his verbal pledge. At 10pm CT that pledge...

So much for conventional wisdom and “seeing the way things are going” in practice.

However, Jeff Potrykus of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel is reporting...
