Badgers report card: Nail-biter a learning experience

Quarterback Joel Stave never has been known for his wheels. But when it mattered most on Saturday, Stave scrambled for the game-clinching 12-yard run during Wisconsin's 26-24 victory against Iowa in Kinnick Stadium. Stave's slide certainly left something to be desired -- he was crushed near midfield and flipped over at the knees. But no one can question his toughness. And his play...

UW’s Frank Kaminsky Had An Awesome Twitter Chat With Green Bay Guard That Nearly Dunked On Him

Few college basketball stars are as personable as Wisconsin big man Frank Kaminsky. Last night during a win against Wisconsin-Green Bay, Kaminsky was very nearly dunked on by 5-foot-11 point guard Keifer Sykes.  Kaminsky joked about the play on Twitter after the game, and the two players wound up having a very nice moment. Thank God that @keifer1124 missed that dunk. Would have...

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.

Melvin Gordon’s Destruction Of The Huskers Gets The Tecmo Bowl Treatment

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 add Virginia CB to 2015 recruiting class

This past weekend was magical for the Wisconsin Badgers. They managed to wrestle control of the Big Ten West away from everyone else in the division, had a record-setting offensive performance and the defense wasn’t too bad. Needless to say, for those recruits on hand it was a helpful scenario. On Tuesday, one of the recruits in attendance, cornerback T.J. Griffin, made his verbal...

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,...

How the Badgers ran and passed: Game 10

I've often wondered how a player accumulates 300 yards rushing in a game. I never imagined 400 (or 408, to be exact). But now we know. To say the least, when Melvin Gordon ran outside against Nebraska, good things happened (as it usuall does). So without further adieu, here's how Wisconsin's numbers broke down against the Husker and the totals for the season. (Key: LI...
