Wisconsin Backup RB Pokes Fun At Sports Illustrated For Mistakenly Using His Photo In Melvin Gordon Feature

Back on November 15, Wisconsin running back Melvin Gordon set a new FBS record for most rushing yards in a game (425) against Nebraska. That number has since been eclipsed by Oklahoma tailback Samaje Perine, but the fact remains that it was still one of the most impressive performances in college football history. Not surprisingly, Sports Illustrated chose to do a feature on Gordon...

How the Badgers ran and passed: Game 9

One of the advantages to tracking statistical tendencies is you can see when something different occurs. For example, before last week's game, Melvin Gordon had run wide right (as in a jet sweep-type run) just twice and for all of 1 yards combined. Against Purdue, he had two of those kind of runs and gained 62 yards. OK, now let's get right to the numbers after this reminder on keys...

Andersen lays down the gauntlet to Badgers youngsters

The Wisconsin Badgers football season hasn’t exactly gone to plan, sitting at 4-2 and entering an interesting stretch against the two newcomers — Maryland and Rutgers. After seeing Maryland take down Iowa and Rutgers get to bowl eligibility, Wisconsin can’t expect more of the same from the first half to work in the second half. Wisconsin is far from a perfect team, and it has...

How the Badgers ran and passed: Game 4

Some interesting numbers looking at the way Wisconsin ran the ball against South Florida. Running to the left had been successful in the early going of 2014 for Melvin Gordon, but not so this past Saturday. Meanwhile, running to the right -- and specifically inside -- had been trouble for Gordon, but, again, the opposite was true against the Bulls. Elsewhere, looking at Tanner McEvoy...

How the Badgers ran and passed: Game 3

So, I'm guessing this week's version -- at least the run game part -- will be a little more fun to read than last week's. The way Wisconsin ran the ball against Bowling Green certainly will pad the numbers for the season, but note that the Badgers are still having difficulty running to the right. As far as Tanner McEvoy's passing targets, perhaps no surprises there for anyone who...

Notebook: Badgers get big performance from surprise source

MADISON, Wis. -- Dare Ogunbowale didn't have any grand ideas about what Saturday's game might hold for him. Two weeks ago, he was a defensive back struggling to crack Wisconsin's playing rotation. Now, he'd been switched to running back entirely out of necessity because of depth issues. When considering the fact Ogunbowale's last carry in an actual football game took place four years...
