2016 In-state prospect rated 5-star by 247sports ☆

Wisconsin and 5-star prospects are usually associated with a snowball’s chance in hell. That began to change last year as the Badgers were in the final three for 5-star running back Joe Mixon. However, in the 2016 recruiting class, UW has a very big chance to land one of the nation’s best players.  That’s because Hartland (Arrowhead) Wis. offensive lineman, Ben Bredeson, is...

Houston 'not in the fight' for starting QB job

MADISON, Wis. -- When Bart Houston arrived on Wisconsin's campus two years ago, he figured his shot to be the team's starting quarterback would come in due time. Work hard, make smart decisions and accurate throws and the rest would fall into place. But that has not happened for Houston, a one-time four-star prospect from De La Salle High School in California. And now, the...

Badgers Spring Game 2014: Impressions not pretty ☆

Wisconsin’s annual spring game wasn’t much of a game—especially given the injuries and format because of said injuries. In the end, it was Cardinal 6, White 0. The score mattered little to the coaches, the fans, nor the players. Instead, it was all about the individuals on Saturday afternoon at Camp Randall. What everyone ended up seeing was a defense that had the offense...
