WISCONSIN RUMORS & GOSSIP

Could Malik Zaire be answer to questions for Badgers at quarterback?

Few programs in the country know the value that a graduate transfer quarterback can bring to a team like the Wisconsin Badgers can. Some guy by the name of Russell Wilson comes to mind. Then again, few teams in the country know the value of a deep quarterback position overall better than the Badgers do as of late. So, it came as little surprise that former Notre Dame quarterback...

NFL Draft 2017: Wisconsin RB Corey Clement scouting report

The Big Ten’s second leading rusher in 2016, Clement should carve out a nice NFL career. In scouting, it’s imperative to remind yourself that every player is an individual.

Succeeding Melvin Gordon, James...

Friday night, the NCAA Tournament provided us with our first buzzer-beater. And arguably, the very best game of the big dance. It was worth the wait for some, but the same old pain for others.
