Who were Wisconsin’s best and worst non-conference football opponents ever?

It’s the offseason, and that means countless hours of pouring over history and finding crazy stats for you, the loyal Wisconsin Badgers fan and MTB reader. One of the most maddening talking points in past offseason’s has been the utter lack of anything exciting on the Badgers non-conference schedule.

From Small Town to Big Stage: Adam Schulz Could Be Houston’s New Hope

Muskego, Wisconsin, is a town of just under 25,000 people outside of Milwaukee. Pronounced Mus-key-go, this normally quiet town becomes a summer hot spot thanks to three amazing lakes dominating the landscape.

Instead of team chartered flights and five star hotels, bus rides and cheap motels from small town to small town represent the beginning of a baseball...

Time to hit the reset button on the college basketball season

The moment Russell Wilson threw that end-zone interception, it was time.

Dispelling the myth of Paul Chryst’s offense as only ‘ground and pound’

Wisconsin will run the ball down your throat, then shove it even further down your throat some more and eventually continue doing it until you beg for mercy. Those are the scenes painted in words and written about the Wisconsin Badgers offense, especially that of former offensive coordinator turned new head coach Paul Chryst. None of which should be surprising with the number of...

The Seattle Seahawks quarterback is a former bully? When Russell Wilson’s voice came out in an ad last year encouraging fans to ask him anything, to learn all about him, who expected this? He was a face grinder as a kid, a slammer who put others on the wall, a slugger who knocked teeth out. Easy to say he would have been a handful on a sleepover with his friends, if he had any...
