How the Badgers ran and passed: Game 11

An interesting thing occurred for Wisconsin against Iowa last Saturday. The Badgers handed the ball off 33 times and Melvin Gordon received 31 of those. The other two hand-offs both lost yards. Yes, Tanner McEvoy also ran the ball, but, as mentioned way back in the beginning, I don't track QB runs as they can come on scrambles and such, plus sacks count as rush yards. Maybe that...

Gophers prepared for heavy dose of Wisconsin's Gordon

MINNEAPOLIS -- Even as a high schooler, Cameron Botticelli knew Melvin Gordon was special. Botticelli, the Gophers senior defensive tackle, was on the Marquette University High School defense that tried to slow down Gordon and the Kenosha Bradford offense years ago. It wasn't easy to do then -- even though Botticelli and Marquette emerged victorious -- and it's gotten even harder...

After allowing 59 points and an FBS-record 408 rushing yards to Melvin Gordon and his Wisconsin Badgers, it sure was nice to be back home for an easy win over the Minn–wait, what?

Samaje Perine’s 427-Yard Day Somehow Got The Taiwanese Animation Treatment

This past Saturday, Oklahoma freshman Samaje Perine broke the one-week old FBS record for most rushing yards in a single game. Perine ran for a ridiculous 427 yards on 34 carries, besting Wisconsin’s Melvin Gordon, who finished with 408 yards two Saturdays ago. Apparently, the occasion was important enough to warrant one of NMA’s bizarre animations. The video mostly makes fun...

Badgers 84, Green Bay 60: Wisconsin burns Phoenix with size advantage

Green Bay wasn’t going to be intimidated going up against the Badgers size advantage, but said advantage seemed to be the biggest difference maker after all. Wisconsin used its size to help bang its way to an 84-60 win, improving to 3-0 on the young season. Wisconsin knew coming in it had an advantage over Green Bay team who’s tallest player was just 6-9, and with a trio of Sam...

What does a 59-24 win over the main competition for a division title look like condensed into one minute? Thanks to Wisconsin, now we know. The school’s video team put together an awesome time lapse from this past weekend’s game. While Melvin Gordon’s 408 yards should probably be enjoyed at a slightly more normal pace, we still thought this was very cool.  The Badgers travel...

Wisconsin Fan Makes Tecmo Bowl Version Of Melvin Gordon’s 408-Yard Day

This past Saturday, Wisconsin running back Melvin Gordon set a new FBS record as he racked up 408 yards against Nebraska in just three quarters of play. To celebrate, one Badgers fan decided to show us what it would have looked like back in the day, when Tecmo Bowl was still the game of choice for football fans. It’s not entirely accurate, as the Cornhuskers’ defenders had a...

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you would have heard of Wisconsin Badgers running back Melvin Gordon destroying LaDanian Tomlinson’s single-game rushing record IN THREE QUARTERS this past weekend.

Is this the best Wisconsin Badgers defense of all-time?

Week after week the Wisconsin Badgers defense seems to do something special. Whether it’s shutting an opponent out, holding them to under 100 yards rushing or a myriad of other things — it’s always something new and different each week. After helping out in a big way in the win over Nebraska it got us wondering just how good this Badgers defense really is. We know that this...

Badgers' unselfish Kaminsky a skilled guard in a big man's body

MADISON, Wis. -- The 7-footer who plays like a guard was leading a fast break during Wisconsin's exhibition game two weeks ago, when he spotted teammate Josh Gasser lining up for 3. Frank Kaminsky had decisions to make here. He could have pulled the ball out and set a half-court offense. He could have driven the length of the floor and fired up a quick shot for himself. Instead,...
