WISCONSIN RUMORS & GOSSIP

Andersen: Bye week gave Badgers time to get 'run game back on track'

MADISON, Wis. -- Two weeks without a football game provided Wisconsin's coaching staff plenty of time to hone in on fixing the team's struggles in the run game. And Badgers coach Gary Andersen said following Thursday's practice the best way to achieve that feat was simply to strap on the pads and let the starters clang against each other. "I think we had more crossover...

Adeyanju, in fact, has yet to make an appearance on the depth chart in four seasons with the program. That is an awfully long time for a player to wait his turn. But Adeyanju is doing his part each day to make...

Badgers QB commit continues to set high school football world on fire

The Wisconsin Badgers may have gotten lucky in a way no one in the athletic department was thinking when Gary Andersen was hired as head coach. See, it didn’t take long for his relationships inside Utah to pay off, and one of the biggest names in the state just so happened to be a high 3-star quarterback by the name of Austin Kafentzis. It didn’t even take a year for that relationship...

Wisconsin Badgers football: Is this 2006 all over again for UW?

Wisconsin QB Joel Stave Is Out Indefinitely Because He Has ‘The Yips’

Joel Stave started all 13 games for the Wisconsin Badgers in 2013, throwing for nearly 2,500 yards and 22 touchdowns.

A few days later, Badgers head coach Gary Anderson appeared to have the answer, revealing that Stave would be shut down indefinitely because of an injury to his throwing...

Joel Stave and Tanner McEvoy.(Twitter/@BTNTomDienhart) Over the weekend, there was a ton of confusion over Melvin Gordon’s lack of touches in the second half.
