AUDIO: Badgers linebackers going bald for a good cause

Melvin Gordon sends heartfelt message to Wisconsin

New Chargers running back, Melvin Gordon was an absolute star at Wisconsin. He’s the owner of every major rushing record at Wisconsin and was a Heisman finalist last year after rushing for 2,587 yards and a stunning 29 touchdowns.

Joel Stave's experience serves Wisconsin well

He has learned to be prepared for anything, which comes with the wisdom of being in the program for so long. He has also learned to...
