Boom or Bust: Looking Back at Wisconsin Badgers 2011 recruiting class

Everyone knows the lifeblood of any program comes on the recruiting trail, but getting players on campus and to sign on the dotted line is a far cry from meaning success or failure. The other half of the equation is how the recruiting class plays once on campus. A two-star recruit can become a star, while that highly rated four-star recruit never pans out the way the recruiting services...

It was a mixed bag for Wisconsin’s special teams this...

Looking ahead to the Badgers in 2015: Offense

The book has barely closed on Wisconsin's 2014 football season, but that doesn't mean we can't look ahead to 2015. After all, it's already been seven days since the Outback Bowl. The Badgers will lose several key pieces off a team that finished 11-3, won the Big Ten West Division and captured its first bowl victory since 2009. Other players will return to try and solidify their roles...

How the Badgers ran and passed: Game 14

The final edition of this feature for the 2014 season (hold your applause) is a lot more palatable than the pentultimat one, I'm sure. Some interesting tidbits from the Auburn game include: -- In a game in which center Dan Voltz was lost due to injury (and early), Melvin Gordon had a season-high six carries up the middle (i.e. over the center spot) -- Corey Clement had run left wide...

Badgers seniors knew quickly they wanted Alvarez to coach bowl game

MADISON, Wis. -- The words that rocked Wisconsin's football program yet again had settled in the air, and what remained was stunned silence from players. An impromptu team meeting inside the McClain Athletic Facility last Wednesday had resulted in head coach Gary Andersen informing his group that he was leaving to take over Oregon State's program. Andersen thanked players for their...

How the Badgers ran and passed: Game 13

Yeah, I know you'd just as soon as forget about Satuday's debacle than be reminded of it. But that's the thing about a weekly feature -- you do it every week. One thing from this past game: Melvin Gordon was given an additional 7 yards lost after he fumbled. Wisconsin had the ball at the 12 and Gordon lost a yard and fumbled. Joey Bosa picked it up at the 4. In accordance with NCAA...

Late in difficult season, Badgers WR Wheelwright seizing opportunities

MADISON, Wis. -- Rob Wheelwright brimmed with optimism in early August at the thought of developing into Wisconsin's go-to wide receiver on a unit in desperate need of playmakers. He possessed graceful route running, an improving set of hands and -- most important -- a healthy body. That is, until he didn't. Just when it appeared Wheelwright was ready to crack the playing rotation...

Notebook: Clement plays through pain, stings Gophers

MADISON, Wis. -- If Corey Clement was being honest with himself -- really honest -- even he had to admit the odds of him playing in Wisconsin's most significant game of the season Saturday were slim to none. "Really, I wasn't supposed to play today unless I was really needed," Clement would say. Turns out, Clement was needed. And he came through in a big way. Clement did not appear...

How the Badgers ran and passed: Game 11

An interesting thing occurred for Wisconsin against Iowa last Saturday. The Badgers handed the ball off 33 times and Melvin Gordon received 31 of those. The other two hand-offs both lost yards. Yes, Tanner McEvoy also ran the ball, but, as mentioned way back in the beginning, I don't track QB runs as they can come on scrambles and such, plus sacks count as rush yards. Maybe that...

How the Badgers ran and passed: Game 10

I've often wondered how a player accumulates 300 yards rushing in a game. I never imagined 400 (or 408, to be exact). But now we know. To say the least, when Melvin Gordon ran outside against Nebraska, good things happened (as it usuall does). So without further adieu, here's how Wisconsin's numbers broke down against the Husker and the totals for the season. (Key: LI = left inside...

Notebook: Badgers' defense holds strong vs. No. 16 Nebraska

MADISON, Wis. -- Members of Wisconsin's defense would've been well within their rights to start pointing fingers in every direction early in Saturday's game against Nebraska. A fumble, a botched punt and another fumble gave the Cornhuskers three possessions in Badgers territory -- with an average starting field position of the 34-yard line. Those three possessions resulted in 17...

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...

How the Badgers ran and passed: Game 8

A quick note before we get into the numbers. These stats I list are not my opinions. I try to do my best in determing accuracy. But there are times where I have to make a decision. This often comes up with dropped passes. This past week, I determined more than usual. My basic tenet is if it hits a player in the hand(s) and isn't caught, it is a drop. There are always exceptions...

One thing seems to remain constant for Wisconsin when running the ball is success when running outside of the left tackle.

Badgers freshmen WRs developing, even if numbers don't show it

MADISON, Wis. -- Wisconsin's football program has been in desperate need of wide receiver help for years.

Welcome back to another edition of the mailbag. Wisconsin is coming off a 38-28 victory against Illinois, and that can only mean the questions did not come in as fast and as furious.

Perhaps it is just me, but numbers fascinate me. So while Melvin Gordon had a big game against Illinois, it is interesting to see exactly where his success came from. And Corey Clement also had a lot of rushing yards, but the stats show when he ran to the left that's when the big plays occurred. Anyway, hope you enjoy the breakdown of this last game against Illinois and the totals...
