WISCONSIN RUMORS & GOSSIP

Wisconsin finishes strong, eases past Iowa

IOWA CITY, Iowa -- Bo Ryan sat behind a podium in the underbelly of Carver-Hawkeye Arena on Saturday afternoon, trying his best to deflect the heaping of praise directed at his basketball team. He has a national player of the year candidate, a Big Ten regular-season crown in his sights and the chance to secure the program's first-ever No. 1 seed in the NCAA tournament. But on January...

No. 5 Wisconsin's Kaminsky comes up big in victory over Iowa

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. It didn’t quiet go the way the first one did, but the end result was the same as No. 5 Wisconsin (19-2, 7-1 B1G) took care of Iowa 74-63. That meant the Badgers swept the season series against the Hawkeyes (13-8, 4-4 B1G) for the second-straight...

GIF: Nigel Hayes Throws Down A Nasty One-Handed Putback Dunk

Wisconsin and Iowa are in the middle of an exciting one at Carver-Hawkeye Arena with the Badgers leading 58-49 with under eight minutes remaining in the game.

Frank Kaminsky leads all...

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...

Jesse Temple: Kaminsky most valuable Badgers player ever

MADISON, Wis. -- Here was Bo Ryan being at his most honest. In the minutes after Wisconsin had escaped with a 69-64 overtime victory at Michigan on Saturday night, Ryan couldn't help but effusively praise Badgers center Frank Kaminsky, whose 22-point, nine-rebound performance lifted the team from the depths of despair. And if you've come across many Ryan news conferences, you'll...

Gary Andersen sends terrible message in reasoning for leaving Badgers

When Gary Andersen took over the Wisconsin Badgers program all he had to do was not screw it up for the first couple of years. He managed to do that for the most part, winning 20 games over the course of two seasons and making an appearance in the Big Ten championship game. That’s acceptable to most in the Badger fan base, and Andersen was sitting in pretty decent territory with...

After Wisconsin head coach Gary Andersen left Madison for Oregon State, the tight end/defensive end out of Millburn, New Jersey started looking at other options. Pickard spent his last weekend here in Syracuse, and will travel to Eugene this weekend to...

With Jackson out, backup Showalter looks to make most of more minutes

MADISON, Wis. -- Zak Showalter approached preseason practices in October with the same zest and energy he always had for Wisconsin's basketball team. Except this year, there seemed to be a tangible carrot dangling in front of the redshirt sophomore -- the opportunity for playing time as the fourth guard in Badgers coach Bo Ryan's rotation. When Showalter edged Jordan Hill for that...

Badgers 'not ready for prime time,' fall 5-2 to Gophers

MINNEAPOLIS -- It took the Wisconsin Badgers almost three periods to surmount a rally in Friday's tie against Minnesota. One day later, the Badgers never had that chance. Wisconsin fell behind early and found itself in too big a hole to mount any type of comeback in Saturday's series finale at Mariucci Arena. Minnesota stymied the Badgers and handed Wisconsin a 5-2 loss, one game...

Wisconsin Badgers once sent recruit named Clint letter addressed to ‘C*nt’ (pic)

Clint Copenhaver held on to a recruiting letter from the Wisconsin Badgers football program for about two decades, not because he cherishes the memory of a time when a powerhouse school had interest in him, but for other reasons entirely. Copenhaver wound up playing linebacker for the Michigan Wolverines, not the Badgers, from 1995-1998, and...Read More The post Wisconsin Badgers...

Auburn And Wisconsin Ate An Absurd Amount Of Food At The Outback Bowl Dinner

Perhaps the best perk of getting to play in the Outback Bowl is the game’s introductory dinner. Every year, the two squads playing in the annual contest team up to eat a jaw-dropping amount of food. This year’s version was no different. Per Auburn, both the Tigers and the Wisconsin Badgers combined to eat 1,200 pounds of food – and that was just for dessert. Check out the damage...
