Armchair Scouting Reports: Melvin Gordon, RB, Wisconsin

What the Film Shows Similar to Marcus Mariota, I often find it difficult to evaluate Wisconsin backs due to their consistently potent offensive lines. Gordon makes the most of terrific blocking as a part of a great Badger scheme. He is patient, willing to wait for holes to develop, and uses jump cuts to navigate [&hellip (Visited 2 times, 2 visits today) The post Armchair Scouting...

Wisconsin Badgers Spring Football 2015 Preview: Defensive Line

We’ve come to the end of our spring previews already, but we’ve saved perhaps the most up in the air position for last too. If there was one area that the Wisconsin Badgers could’ve improved on in 2014 it was the production of the defensive line. Part of it had to do with injuries to both Konrad Zagzebski and Warren Herring, the other part had to do with a lot of youth at the...

Frank Kaminsky, Jahlil Okafor battling to win John R. Wooden Award

Now that college basketball’s regular season is coming to a close, the select few who’ve got a legitimate shot to win the annual John R.Wooden Award as the nation’s best player have unofficially separated themselves from a long list of hopefuls that just can’t compete, and going forward, only two of those players will matter. At the moment, Wisconsin senior Frank Kaminsky...

Badgers pound Spartans en route to Big Ten title

Senior Day may be bittersweet for some players, but for Frank Kaminsky it was all business…and business was good. He went to work early and often and the Badgers benefited to the tune of a deceiving 68-61 victory. Deceiving because Wisconsin led by as man as 20 points and it took most of the last few minutes of the game for Michigan State to make it a game on the scoreboard. As...

Ryan says Jackson could be out two more weeks

MADISON, Wis. -- Traevon Jackson said with certainty last week that he would return from injury in time for Wisconsin's senior day against Michigan State on Sunday. Doctors, however, never medically cleared Jackson, and he instead watched the game from the bench in street clothes. Now, it appears Jackson could be sidelined even longer. Badgers coach Bo Ryan said Monday on the Big...

Kaminsky leaves Wisconsin's senior day with Big Ten title

MADISON, Wis. -- Frank Kaminsky stood on a podium inside the Kohl Center next to a sea of teammates wearing red Big Ten championship T-shirts, hats and permanent grins Sunday afternoon. The celebration of Wisconsin's first regular season conference title in seven years was only a few minutes old, and Kaminsky -- between joyous hugs and cell phone selfies with the trophy -- took time...

Wisconsin Badgers Spring Football 2015 Preview: Linebacker

The Wisconsin Badgers survived a quick transition to the 3-4 look in 2013, managed to survive a massive turnover in front of them in 2014 and the transition to Dave Aranda players is nearly complete heading in to 2014. However, the Badgers won’t have stalwarts like Marcus Trotter or Derek Landisch available anymore and that makes for a really young and interesting looking group...

Bracketology: Is Wisconsin or Gonzaga the last Top Seed?

It’s that time of year. “Seed lines” become a part of the national discussion… and unlike Great Britain, such a term has nothing to do with the Royal Family or its babies. We’re talking brackets, and no seed line is more scrutinized than the top one. Just exactly which teams are in line to get the four No. 1 seeds? Kentucky and Virginia are set, and Kansas is falling...

Vine: Dez Wells After Maryland Win Over Wisconsin- “Frank Kaminsky’s A Great Player, But He’s Not God”

Wisconsin’s Frank Kaminsky is one of the nation’s best player, and a favorite to win this year’s Naismith Award, but not everyone in the Big Ten is overly impressed by the Badgers center.

Badgers know bench must improve for a deep tournament run

MADISON, Wis. -- Wisconsin's basketball team is on the precipice of a Big Ten regular season championship thanks largely to an exceptionally talented starting five.

Melvin Gordon: Falling Short Of Barry Sanders’ Record “Sucked A Little Bit”

Melvin Gordon was an absolute monster for Wisconsin in 2014, rushing for 2,587 yards and 29 touchdowns, and posting a crazy 7.5 yards per carry on the season.

Traevon Jackson, who suffered a foot injury during a January 11th game at Rutgers, is inching closer and closer to returning to the Badgers’ lineup.

Gary Andersen sends terrible message in reasoning for leaving Badgers

When Gary Andersen took over the Wisconsin Badgers program all he had to do was not screw it up for the first couple of years. He managed to do that for the most part, winning 20 games over the course of two seasons and making an appearance in the Big Ten championship game. That’s acceptable to most in the Badger fan base, and Andersen was sitting in pretty decent territory with...
