JJ Watt named NFL Defensive Player of the Year for 2nd time in career

Wisconsin’s own J.J. Watt has become somewhat of a cult-hero in the NFL. Not only is he making great moves with his charity work and overall great attitude off the field, but he’s been one of the most electrifying men in the NFL over the past few years. He’s only been in the league for four years, but he’s managed to rack up some major awards. On Saturday night the NFL held...

Badgers sweep Hawkeyes for 2nd straight season

Wisconsin’s big victory over Iowa was barely out of the memory bank as the two teams tangled for the second time this season on Saturday.

Badgers expect different kind of game against Iowa second time around

MADISON, Wis. -- Wisconsin players and coaches are quick to admit they put together their most complete basketball game this season 10 days ago during an 82-50 blowout victory against Iowa at the Kohl Center, when seemingly everything went right for the Badgers. But they are equally quick to acknowledge Iowa also happened to play at its absolute worst. It was a night in which the...

Advanced capabilities: Badgers most offensively efficient team in country

MADISON, Wis. -- Acknowledging the importance of adjusted offensive efficiency in college basketball likely doesn't move the meter for fans, who prefer the immediacy of a good old-fashioned alley-oop dunk or a crossover step-back jumper. But in the newfangled world of advanced analysis, where metrics are used to break down every facet of the game, few statistics over the long haul...

Could Wisconsin Badgers go without a cornerback in 2015 recruiting class?

Time flies when you’re baring down on the final days of a recruiting cycle, and with just under a week to go before Paul Chryst’s first national signing day as the Wisconsin Badgers head coach things are very fluid. No position seems to be more fluid than that of cornerback, where the Badgers at one point had not one or two, but FOUR committed prospects. It seemed like a loaded...

UW adds walk-on punter Connor Allen

Notebook: Badgers enjoy rare breather in middle of Big Ten slate

MADISON, Wis. -- During the lengthy grind of the Big Ten men's basketball schedule, there are few opportunities for breathers. So when they arrive, it's best to take advantage as much as possible. That's the scenario Wisconsin faces early this week. UW (18-2, 5-1) does not play a game for a span of seven days until squaring off at Iowa (13-7, 4-3) on Saturday. It marks the Badgers...
