WISCONSIN RUMORS & GOSSIP

Mike Riley Expects His Nebraska Team To “Latch Onto” The Trash Talk From Wisconsin Running Back Corey Clement

The best trash talking on Day 1 of Big Ten Media Days in Chicago came from Wisconsin running back Corey Clement.  Clement said the Badgers are like the cool, trendy iPhone while rival Nebraska is like an old flip-phone.  “That’s how I compare Wisconsin to Nebraska. Nebraska is a flip phone (laughs with reporters), and Wisconsin is an iPhone,” he said.  Nebraska coach Mike...

Chryst’s passion for Badgers shines through at Big Ten Media Days

Chicago — By now the story of Paul Chryst and his “journey home” to the University of Wisconsin is a well known and often talked about tale. However, just because a coach is coming back to a place he’s known for most of his life doesn’t mean it will be a good fit. At the 2015 Big Ten Media Days one thing became very obvious — Paul Chryst genuinely loves Wisconsin Badgers...

Wisconsin’s Clement wants ‘no less than 2,000 yards’ in 2015

One thing you can say for Wisconsin Badgers running back Corey Clement: he’s not afraid to set the bar high. Clement, who ran for 949 yards and nine touchdowns last season as the backup – the backup – to Melvin Gordon, told ESPN.com’s Brian Bennett at B1G Media Days in Chicago that his personal goal for the 2015 season is to rush for “no less than 2,000″ yards. A lofty...

Running Back Corey Clement On Badgers-Huskers Rivalry: “Nebraska Is A Flip Phone, Wisconsin Is An iPhone”

You never quite know what kind of quotes you’ll get out of media days. While some coaches and players are very reserved, others aren’t shy with the media, and are willing to take a swing or two at their rivals in the process. Put Wisconsin running back Corey Clement in the Steve Spurrier/Mike Leach/Cardale Jones category. During today’s Big Ten media day, Clement used an extended...

Wisconsin Running Back Corey Clement Wants To Rush For “No Less” Than 2,000 Yards This Season

Melvin Gordon, one of the greatest running backs in the history of the Wisconsin football program, will certainly be missed in Madison, Wisc., this season.  He won’t be too missed if Corey Clement has the type of season he’s aiming for, though.  At Big Ten Media Days in Chicago, Gordon’s replacement at tailback for the Badgers said his personal goal for the season is to rush...

Hayes, Badgers hoopsters release 'diss' raps

Apparently inspired by the ongoing beef between rapper Drake and his rival, Meek Mill, a few Wisconsin Badgers hoopsters have hit the recording studio. The Badgers' jabs are in jest. . . . We think. First, Nigel Hayes threw down the gauntlet, Wednesday night. His rap was titled "Back to Back Freestyle." It is better than The Super Bowl Shuffle, if only slightly. With a delivery that...

Wisconsin players throw diss tracks at each other

The Wisconsin Badgers men’s basketball players clearly like to have fun with each other and rising junior forward Nigel Hayes took it to a whole new level recently. Set to the beat of Drake’s “Back to Back”, Hayes recorded a “diss track” aimed at teammate Vitto Brown, sort of his own homage to Drake’s track, which takes a shot at Meek Mill. For those unaware, Mill has...

Wisconsin F Nigel Hayes Rapped A Track “Dissing” Teammates Over Drake’s “Back To Back” Beat

Wisconsin forward Nigel Hayes played a key role on the Badgers’ consecutive Final Four squads. We know he has some game on the basketball court. On the microphone, though? That’s a different story.  Hayes recorded a “diss” track over the beat from Drake’s “Back to Back” diss of Meek Mill. He takes lighthearted shots at teammate Vitto Brown’s singing and one of Wisconsin’s...

Nick Saban Among Circling Sharks After Wisconsin Denies 4-Star RB Jordan Stevenson Admission

After rushing for 2000+ yards in back to back seasons in high school the Wisconsin Badgers were probably hoping that Jordan Stevenson (from Dallas, Texas) could recreate more of that magic for them. As it turns out they will never get the chance to find out because the school denied him admission. It appears that he did not meet their admission standards.He has since been released...

Have Wisconsin admission standards saved Badger football from embarrassment?

There’s little doubt that 4-star running back Jordan Stevenson is a special talent on the football field. Rushing for over 2,000 yards in back-to-back seasons at Dallas (TX) South Oak Cliff proved that much. However, Stevenson was denied admission to the University of Wisconsin earlier this week and it made for a firestorm against the standards set by the school for football players...

Wisconsin recruiting expenses dwarfed in Big Ten

According to the Indianapolis Star, Wisconsin finished dead last in recruiting expenses, investing only $100,000 in future pools of talent. Despite contributing a small percentage to the Big Ten’s overall dollars in basketball recruiting, Wisconsin managed to appear in back-to-back Final Fours and featured players, Frank Kaminsky and Sam Dekker.

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...

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...

If you would’ve told anyone alive that paid attention to Big Ten basketball through the 1960’s, 70’s and 80’s that the Wisconsin Badgers would be a college basketball power, they likely would’ve laughed at you. But, through 14 years of the Bo Ryan era the Wisconsin Badgers are exactly that. However, the 2015-16 season will be Ryan’s last at the Kohl Center as the head...
