Not starting, sixth-year QB Curt Phillips makes best of situation

MADISON, Wis. -- The notebook fills a little more each week, useful tidbits only Curt Phillips understands. He can't know just yet, but it could represent the start of something big for his second football life -- even as his first sputters toward the finish line. No, this is not the season Phillips envisioned for himself when he returned to the University of Wisconsin after...

Stave looks for consistency for No. 21 Wisconsin

(Eds: Eds; Updates.) By GENARO C. ARMAS AP Sports Writer Joel Stave won the Wisconsin quarterback job. Runner-up Curt Phillips won his new coach's respect. The veteran Phillips yielded snaps in a game to a freshman who needed the experience, a selfless act that Gary Andersen hopes is a defining moment for his 21st-ranked Badgers. It's no big deal, Phillips said. The 45...

Badgers QB Curt Phillips makes rare display of leadership

MADISON, Wis. -- Seven minutes, 30 seconds remained in a game that was over for all intents and purposes, when Wisconsin coach Gary Andersen pulled his offensive starters from the field. Quarterback Curt Phillips, who narrowly lost out on the starting job to Joel Stave, was Andersen's man for what would be the final drive. Phillips, meanwhile, had other plans. The sixth-year...

Big-play ability could mean Joel Stave starts at QB for Badgers

MADISON, Wis. -- Maybe there is nothing more to say. Curt Phillips and Joel Stave have been battling to be Wisconsin's starting quarterback in 2013 for more than five months. Yet here we are, nine days before the team's season opener, and nobody seems certain which man will emerge from the first huddle of the game. Not Phillips. Not Stave. It is out of their hands at this...

Much remains to be decided in Badgers' QB battle

MADISON, Wis. -- Wisconsin's second and final open scrimmage of fall camp came and went Monday, and you'd have thought the most intriguing remaining position battle would have been decided. After all, how many practices does it take before a coaching staff finally picks a starting quarterback? Apparently, at least 18. After more than two weeks of competition, and with just...

Curt Phillips may be pulling ahead in Badgers QB race

MADISON, Wis. -- Wisconsin quarterback Curt Phillips is no stranger to success in the two-minute drill, and that experience appears to be serving him well as he tries to win the Badgers' starting job in fall camp. During Saturday's practice, the 15th of 28 this fall, Phillips demonstrated his poise in such a situation, perhaps pushing ahead again in a back-and-forth battle...

Badgers defense makes offense look offensive

MADISON, Wis. -- If defense wins championships, as the old adage goes, then Wisconsin would have walked away with a national title based on their performance during Thursday's fall practice. The defense so thoroughly dominated the Badgers' offense that it looked at times as though the two sides were in different college football divisions. For a team trying to find a starting...

Though practices would seem to clearly indicate a two-man competition brewing between Curt Phillips and Joel Stave, Andersen is not ready to proclaim junior-college transfer Tanner McEvoy out of...

Good Guy/Bad Guy with the Wisconsin Badgers QB battle

Three different quarterbacks started for the Wisconsin Badgers in 2012 and the very same situation could arrise in 2013. Last year it was Danny O’Brien (has since transfered to a D2 school) who beat out current Badgers Joel Stave and Curt Phillips for the role of starting quarterback at the end of fall camp. This time around, Stave and Phillips try to fend off a talented junior...

Wisconsin's Tanner McEvoy takes step back in QB battle

MADISON, Wis. -- Wisconsin coach Gary Andersen didn't need to announce an official quarterback depth chart following his team's first open scrimmage of the college football season. Based on the results, it would seem the Badgers are no longer entrenched in a three-man race. Not after Curt Phillips and Joel Stave separated themselves as a cut above junior-college transfer...

Andersen impressed by freshman Corey Clement

MADISON, Wis. -- One tradition Wisconsin football coach Gary Andersen has implemented during fall camp is the idea that incoming players must earn the logo on the side of their helmets. On Monday, for example, the sides of every new player's helmets were blank, with a single black stripe the only decoration. By Friday's practice, five players had been "de-striped"...

Tanner McEvoy still trying to learn Badgers offense

MADISON, Wis. -- It's so early in fall camp that players have yet to don full pads, so any major position proclamations would be premature. But through four fall practices, this much is clear about Wisconsin's quarterback battle: Tanner McEvoy still has a long way to go if he hopes to win the starting job. McEvoy's overall repetitions have been limited in comparison...
