Badgers focused on learning, moving on from loss to LSU

MADISON, Wis. -- Visions of appearing in the inaugural four-team College Football Playoff have faded from view for Wisconsin's football team, at least for the foreseeable future. What lingers now is the sting of a 28-24 loss to LSU in a game that most Badgers players would tell you they should have won. How does a team regroup after blowing a 17-point third-quarter lead in the...

Badgers long snappers follow same route to anonymity

MADISON, Wis. -- The snap slipped from James McGuire's hands, and he knew immediately that trouble was imminent. It fluttered in the cool October air, drifting lower and lower toward the turf until Wisconsin punter Drew Meyer bent down to scoop and salvage the play. Instead, Meyer couldn't handle the ball, he was chased backward and ultimately had the kick partially blocked...

Camping with the Badgers 2013: Special Teams

Wow, the time has really flown by... We're past the halfway point on our camping journey through the Badgers roster and today we look at an area that was rocky at best in 2012 and could use some improvement going forward - no, we aren't talking about the passing game, silly - instead today we are focusing on the Special Teams at Wisconsin.  The kicking game left a lot...

Plan B could turn out just fine for new Wisconsin kicker Andrew Endicott

Four months ago, Andrew Endicott thought he'd found the perfect scenario when he chose to attend the University of Nevada as a preferred walk-on kicker for the football team. In a short time, he had developed a strong rapport with Wolf Pack special teams coach Jeff Genyk. And he would reside just a couple hours from his hometown in Sacramento, Calif. As college plans went, Endicott...

Drew Meyer to Badger Football 2013

So far this year we've already counted down with two specialists, because the Badgers are cool like that and have amazingly high numbers for their punters and kickers. Heck, the person most famous for wearing No. 94 is former punter Ken DeBauche.  Today we celebrate Drew Meyer to Badger football kickoff. That means we're just 90 days away from all the wonderful sights...

Sunday Morning Hangover: Badgers Coming Close Just Isn't Good Enough Anymore

(photo courtesy M.P. King - Wisconsin State Journal) As painful as it was to sit back and watch Wisconsin lose 21-14 in overtime to hated rivals Ohio State yesterday, it was even more painful to put myself through watching it a 2nd time on the good ole DVR. After watching things over once again there's only one conclusion that you can come to: Coming so close, yet losing...

Ohio State 21, Wisconsin 14: Badgers Leave Sour Note on Senior Day

Wisconsin had it's share of opportunities, but in the end it was the Ohio State Buckeyes that took advantage of theirs as they remain undefeated after a 21-14 overtime victory in front of a stunned Camp Randall crowd.  Just like the 2010 version of the game at Cam Randall it was a special teams return that set the tone for the game, only this time it was to Ohio State'...

Badgers punter Meyer a virtual MVP

MADISON, Wis. It's no secret quarterbacks, running backs and wide receivers garner the vast majority of praise on the football field. Scoring points, after all, make the highlight reels spin.

Meyer first in line to replace Nortman

MADISON, Wis. Wisconsin punter Drew Meyer learned plenty about his craft while watching from the sideline on game days last fall. He hopes to learn even more by playing next fall. Meyer took a redshirt season as a freshman last year as senior punter Brad Nortman closed out one of the best punting careers in Badgers history. Nortman finished his career ranked third in school history...

Spring Football - Specialists

We're nearing the end of our look at the Badgers roster breakdowns and there's no way we can forget the Specialists, right?  As Badger fans we've been spoiled rotten over the past 10 years or so to have mostly great to very good kickers and punters but entering 2012 both positions are going to be manned by new players.   Add to it that the Badgers will be breaking...
