Musical chairs about to happen on 2016 recruiting trail for Big Ten RB targets?

One can argue about conference strength all they want, but there’s little doubt that the position of running back has more emphasis and importance in the Big Ten than any other conference in the country. It’s no coincidence that schools like Michigan State, Ohio State and Wisconsin have dominated the top of the conference as of late. They’ve also dominated in the offensive...

Badgers appear to have discovered offense just in time for Big Ten opener

MADISON -- No. 19 Wisconsin has its running game going again, piling up a season-best 326 yards in 54 attempts in last week's 28-0 victory over Hawaii.

Navy's Reynolds rushing up the record books

It’s only fitting that the player nobody wanted will end up being the one history will not be able to forget. When Keenan Reynolds graduated from Goodpasture Christian High School in Tennessee, the undersized, under-recruited quarterback had three college football options: Air Force, Navy and Wofford. The 5-11, 205-pound Reynolds elected to go with Navy, where his knack for making...

2015 Big Ten power rankings: Week 2

The Big Ten looked like the laughingstock of college football in Week 1, but now the tables have turned. After the disastrous opening weekend for the conference as a whole, Week 2 was exactly what it needed to right the ship. A 12-2 Saturday put two Big Ten teams in the top five, two more into the national rankings and only the two newest members, Maryland and Rutgers, dropped games...

Montee Ball says he should have skipped senior year

As the sharks of uncertainty circle Montee Ball, give the man credit. He’s stood up and faced every question like a professional and answered them honestly, perhaps even too honestly for the Broncos’ liking. While the Broncos are reportedly attempting to execute a trade of their 2013 second-round pick, they are (perhaps desperately) hoping to convince a willing trade partner...

Badgers preseason watch list breakdown

The college football season doesn't start for over another month, but the past two weeks have been another season of sorts: the announcement of award watch lists. These lists are, by and large, irrelevant. Players can make the watch list and flame out. Or not make the watch list and end up winning the award (which does happen). Also, some lists are quite inclusive -- the Bednarik...

Melvin Gordon goes No. 15 to San Diego Chargers in 2015 NFL Draft

It will be a long time, if ever, that Badger fans who witnessed the 2014 football season will forget the name Melvin Gordon.

Where will running back Todd Gurley get drafted?

There isn’t much debate in who’s the best running back in this year’s draft and that’s Todd Gurley who played his college football with the University of Georgia Bulldogs. Gurley has excellent size for a running back as he stands 6-foot-1 and weighs 236 pounds; he is simply a wrecking ball with legs.If the only thing Todd Gurley did was pound the rock he’d be worth the...

Borland recruiting loss stings, but not time to write off Paul Chryst and Co.

Tuf Borland was supposed to be wearing Cardinal and White — his dad was a Badger after all. Tristian Pipp was a shoo-in to be a Badger — after all, he’s from in-state and a legit three-star linebacker. Except neither of those two things have happened. Pipp, a two-sport star at Greenfield (Wis.) High School surprised a lot in Badger nation and in football recruiting circles...

MADISON, Wis. -- The questions about Melvin Gordon's looming career decision began in July, back before he put together one of the great seasons in college football history.
