Badgers' Koenig embraces being role model for Native American community

MADISON, Wis. -- A group of about 20 boys sat across three rows of chairs inside a small conference room at a Nebraska Holiday Inn last March, rapt by the words coming from the man up front wearing his white Wisconsin Badgers warmup shirt. He was just a few years older, still a baby-face with a buzz cut, and yet he was worlds away on a path many seated there could only dream about...

Notebook: Badgers enjoy rare breather in middle of Big Ten slate

MADISON, Wis. -- During the lengthy grind of the Big Ten men's basketball schedule, there are few opportunities for breathers. So when they arrive, it's best to take advantage as much as possible. That's the scenario Wisconsin faces early this week. UW (18-2, 5-1) does not play a game for a span of seven days until squaring off at Iowa (13-7, 4-3) on Saturday. It marks the Badgers...

Badgers pick up surprise commit from RB Bradrick Shaw

The Wisconsin Badgers 2015 class continues to fluctuate as we come closer and closer to national signing day. It continued to change on Saturday night as the Badgers picked up a surprise commitment from a running back previously thought to be off the radar — Bradrick Shaw of the famed Hoover program in Birmingham, Ala.

Kraig Howe becomes Badgers’ 25th commit for 2015 class

It didn’t take long at all for former Pitt defensive tackle commit Kraig Howe to pledge to the Badgers. In fact, it was just hours in to his visit to the Madison campus, but the Badgers are back up to 25 commits in the class. Our recruiting partners at Badger247 (if you aren’t subscribing you should be) are reporting that Howe has committed to the Badgers on Saturday afternoon...

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...

Sifting Through TE/DE Jake Pickard’s Options Before Signing Day

On paper TE/DE Jake Pickard is still committed to the Wisconsin Badgers, but off the record things are much more complicated. 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...

Projecting the future Wisconsin Badgers football scholarship distribution

We’re just two weeks away from the annual celebration of new players coming aboard, otherwise known as national signing day. The Wisconsin Badgers are busy putting out new offers and figuring out where things stand, so we figured it would be a good time to look to the future too. UW’s new coaching staff has resulted in a few changes to the plan that was put in place by the last...

(Video) Eddie Wittchow blows up Leon Bristedt

There was a little excitement to finish Saturday's game between the Wisconsin Badgers and the Minnesota Gophers. Wiscon's Eddie Wittchow was given five-minute major and a game misconduct for contact-to-the-head on Leon Bristedt. That's what the final box score said.I think there's a chance that Wittchow could get a game suspension for this hit, it was high.WIS-13 Eddie Wittchow ...

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...

Koenig ready to take turn piloting Wisconsin's offense

MADISON, Wis. -- Bronson Koenig knew when he began his sophomore season that he would take on a bigger role with Wisconsin's basketball program. But to suddenly be thrust into the Badgers' starting point guard spot at mid-season? That's something even the most optimistic Koenig backers likely could not have seen. Yet that's exactly where Koenig finds himself after starting point...

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...

Dress to impress: Syracuse has a chance to flip DE/TE Jake Pickard’s Wisconsin commitment

The Orange sustained a big recruiting loss in late July when Jake Pickard announced his commitment to the Wisconsin Badgers over Syracuse and Virginia. However, that was before then head coach Gary Andersen decided to take over at Oregon State and leave the Wisconsin program. Andersen’s decision came as a shock to Pickard who expressed his feelings on Twitter after he found out...

Video: Wisconsin Players Give Barry Alvarez A Gatorade Bath Following Outback Bowl Win vs. Auburn

December was a turbulent month for the Wisconsin football program. The Badgers were shellacked by Ohio State in the Big Ten Championship Game and then lost their coach, Gary Andersen, to Oregon State.  Wisconsin is off to a pretty great start in January, though.  The Badgers (11-3) beat Auburn (8-5) in the Outback Bowl Thursday afternoon, defeating the Tigers, 34-31, in overtime...

WATCH: Melvin Gordon Destroys Auburn with Epic TD Run

Some said Wisconsin’s Melvin Gordon was overrated. Some said he wouldn’t produce at a high level in the Big 10. Heck, some have even said he’s not going to be a good pro. We wonder whether those people watched Gordon’s ridiculous touchdown run against the Auburn Tigers in the Outback Bowl on New Year’s Day. H/t SB Nation Did we just see Gordon carry that Auburn defender...

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...

Wisconsin RB Melvin Gordon Says Pittsburgh’s Paul Chryst Would Be A “Great” Hire For The Badgers

In all likelihood, Melvin Gordon’s final game as a Wisconsin Badger will come playing under Barry Alvarez, who is coaching the team’s bowl game against Auburn Jan. 1. Gordon, a redshirt junior, is likely to declare for the NFL following this season.  So, the Badgers’ Heisman finalist doesn’t really have to worry about who will be replacing departed coach Gary Andersen.
