4 Badgers named to Athlon 1st team All-Big Ten list

Things are going to be very different in 2015 for the Wisconsin Badgers. Gone is headlining running back Melvin Gordon and so too is head coach Gary Andersen. With both those guys off to the West Coast now, the Badgers look to a future with new stars and a familiar name at head coach. Given the change, it may be surprising to know that the Badgers are loved by a lot of pundits in...

Wisconsin Badgers Spring Football 2015 Preview: Secondary

If the last two games were any indication, you would have believed the Badgers didn’t have much in the way of a secondary. Wisconsin gave up 257 yards passing to Ohio State in the Big Ten title game, while the UW defense also gave up 216 yards passing to Auburn in the Outback Bowl. Still, Wisconsin’s pass defense was one of the best in the country and the best in the Big Ten...

Chryst’s most important hire will be defensive coordinator

Earlier today we took a look back at expected (just formally not announced) new Badgers head coach Paul Chryst’s second stint as offensive coordinator at Wisconsin. Most of us remember how things ended there, and it was glorious to say the least. However, there is one big mystery in the hire of Chryst — just what the Badgers defense will look like.

Hillary has quietly become Badgers' best cornerback

MADISON, Wis. -- Wisconsin coach Gary Andersen didn't need to go out of his way to single out any one player on his team's defense this week. The Badgers rank first in college football in total defense largely because of the unit's ability to excel at all levels, with contributions from every starter. Still, Andersen was compelled to mention one player whose name, he felt, had not...

Wisconsin defense lifts team

MADISON, Wis. (AP) When Wisconsin coach Gary Andersen and his staff had to replace seven starters on defense, there was concern the lack of experience would hinder the Badgers this season. As the regular season winds down, it turns out that No. 25 Wisconsin is playing some of the best defense in the nation. The Badgers, who shut out Rutgers 37-0 on the road Saturday, boast the No...

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...
