Badgers preseason watch list breakdown

The college football season doesn't start for over another month, but the past two weeks have been another season of sorts: the announcement of award watch lists. These lists are, by and large, irrelevant. Players can make the watch list and flame out. Or not make the watch list and end up winning the award (which does happen). Also, some lists are quite inclusive -- the Bednarik...

Frank Kaminsky rocked ‘Frank the Tank’ jacket at ESPYS

For some odd reason, celebrities and athletes taste in apparel seems to have people scratching their heads. I wonder why that would ever be the case… Take what Charlotte Hornets newly drafted player Frank Kaminsky did for example at the ESPYs on Wednesday night. The former Wisconsin Badgers player looks like he’s still reminiscing about the NBA Draft from June. Looking more like...

Prospect primer: Corey Clement | RB | Wisconsin

As soon as Corey Clement announced his commitment to the Wisconsin Badgers out of high school, it was pretty apparent he was going to be next in a long line of Wisconsin running backs that shined once they got their opportunity for meaningful carries. As a true freshman (who generally don’t get much playing time at Wisconsin) he carried the ball only 67 times but rushed for 547...

Who were Wisconsin’s best and worst non-conference football opponents ever?

It’s the offseason, and that means countless hours of pouring over history and finding crazy stats for you, the loyal Wisconsin Badgers fan and MTB reader. One of the most maddening talking points in past offseason’s has been the utter lack of anything exciting on the Badgers non-conference schedule.

July Could Be Big For Changing Course at Wide Receiver for UW

The 2014 Wisconsin Badgers had what it needed on defense, it certainly had the run game. However, there was one glaring weakness that stopped it from being a true national contender — any resemblance of a fearful passing game. It was never more on display than in the opening and closing losses for the Badgers. It was partly a quarterback thing, as Tanner McEvoy opened up cold and...

What's the best Badgers football play ever?

Earlier on Wednesday, prompted by a poll on the greatest college football play of all time, I posed the question on Twitter as to what was the greatest Wisconsin Badgers football play ever? I expected the answer to be Darrell Bevell's touchdown run in the 1994 Rose Bowl. And, as usual, I couldn't have been more wrong. While that play definitely stands out in Wisconsin lore, that...

However, entering the 2015-16 season the Badgers won’t have the services of either of those two veteran netminders. It wasn’t...
