WISCONSIN RUMORS & GOSSIP

Wisconsin Football: Make or Break November

The 2014 Wisconsin football campaign has, for the most part, gone completely unnoticed nationally after they lost their opening game against LSU on a national stage.  Wisconsin had their chances to put the game away, as they led for a full 3 quarters and collapsed down the stretch as LSU shut down the badger offense in the second half and injuries took their toll on the young badger...

How the Badgers ran and passed: Game 7

One thing seems to remain constant for Wisconsin when running the ball is success when running outside of the left tackle. That remained true against Maryland despite not having the usual lofty rush average Badgers running backs have been used to lately. (In fact, Melvin Gordon didn't have a rush of 10+ yards until his final two carries, both of which went for more than 20 yards...

Road win over Rutgers huge for Wisconsin Badgers’ late-season push

It’s hard not to feel good after a 52-7 win against a fellow Big Ten team, especially when you played the way the Badgers did in the win. However, don’t expect Wisconsin to rest on its laurels from that game for long. That’s because Wisconsin faces a road game, and last time anyone checked the Badgers haven’t exactly fared well when traveling away from the confines of Camp...

Badgers' reserve guard Hill: 'I don't want to be on the bench'

MADISON, Wis. -- Jordan Hill spent most of his offseason time in two worlds: Working on his basketball skills and thinking about working on his basketball skills. Every player wants to find areas to improve, but Hill entered the summer with a feeling of even deeper purpose after a freshman season in which he barely played for Wisconsin. During the course of those workouts, Hill contemplated...

Wisconsin 52, Maryland 7: Joel Stave makes case to be Badgers full time QB

Wisconsin came in to the last two games and three weeks wanting to play a two-quarterback system. However, Joel Stave had other designs on Saturday against Maryland. The junior quarterback made an emphatic statement in the Badgers’ 52-7 win over the Terps, perhaps cementing himself as the one guy we’ll see behind center from here on out. It was a game out of nowhere, considering...

Wisconsin punter Drew Meyer channels inner Tim Tebow

Wisconsin football will never be flashy, that much is a given. But when it goes off script it is usually glorious in nature. Such was the case on Saturday, as the Badgers faced a no man’s land punting situation. Rather than play field position Wisconsin decided to make punter Drew Meyer go all Tim Tebow and jump pass it. Well, that was the idea anyway…either it was a replica...
