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...

Wisconsin Badgers potential assistant coaches under Paul Chryst

The Wisconsin Badgers won’t have a new head coach offer and/or announcement until Wednesday (despite all signs pointing to Paul Chryst being the man that will be offered and accept the job). However, that means we’ve got coaches hanging in limbo for the next few days. It also means that some coaches are going to go with Gary Andersen to Oregon State, while others may stay. Still...

Paul Chryst coming home, set to be named next Wisconsin Badgers head coach

When you’re a Madison, Wis. native, a former quarterback at the University of Wisconsin and have been the offensive coordinator at the school twice, it’s safe to say you’re a Badger for life. According to reports Chryst’s journey at the University of Wisconsin is not done, as Barry Alvarez is set to hire the Pitt head coach for the same position, per multiple reports out...

Big Ten Championship Game Preview: Badgers can become Big Ten’s bellwether program

With the No. 14 Wisconsin Badgers 11th-straight win over Minnesota, UW presented itself with an opportunity to win a Big Ten title next weekend. It’s the goal of every team, every year — win a conference championship. You can’t get to the national title picture or get national respect without it (unless you’re in the SEC). National respect could very well come Wisconsin...

Gopher Hate Week: Decade of domination in review (2011 edition)

(All this week we’re taking a look back at the last 10 years of wins in this rivalry, reminding everyone of the decade of domination by the Badgers) For most Badger fans, 2011 will be looked as perhaps the most special season we’ve ever seen. Offensive records were broken like crazy, the defense was amazing and just like other seven years the Badgers put it on the Gophs. By this...

Badgers treating critical Nebraska game as 'one-week playoff'

MADISON, Wis. -- It is no stretch to suggest the electricity coursing through Camp Randall Stadium the last time Nebraska came to town was a phenomenon that has not been matched since. Given the stakes of that night -- a nationally televised primetime game with ESPN's College Gameday on site, Nebraska's inaugural Big Ten game and a chance for Russell Wilson and Montee Ball to capture...

Badgers report card: Passing game comes alive against Boilermakers

No one will ever suggest losing the Big Ten opener to Northwestern did Wisconsin some good back in early October. The loss essentially ended whatever small talk remained of the Badgers competing for the College Football Playoff and raised serious questions about whether this team could even compete in the Big Ten West. But a shift has gradually taken place since the loss, and now...

Bielema’s recruiting woes are finally catching up with Badgers

Just when we all thought we could move on from the man who jumped ship when things were getting good, we’ve been smacked in the face with the ramifications of Bret Bielema’s tenure all over again. Some thought he was crazy for leaving after the heights Wisconsin reached in his final three years at UW. Either that, or Bielema was the smartest man in the room and he jumped ship...

What We Learned From Seattle Seahawks Quarterback Russell Wilson In The Player’s Tribune

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...

Kirk Cousins vs. Russell Wilson: College Edition

Before Kirk Cousins dueled Russell Wilson in the NFL (Cousins stepped in for an injured RGIII in that infamous 2012 playoff game), they shared a remarkable duel in the Michigan State – Wisconsin series. I have an academic attachment to both schools and watched these games with great fascination. My rooting interest is more Spartans than Badgers; I spent more time in East Lansing...

Packers serve as Seahawks chum in season-opening loss

This is not the way we wanted to start the season, Packer fans. We knew it was going to be a tough game. The Seattle Seahawks were 6-point favorites over the Green Bay Packers. Turns out, that was just mildly understated. The 'hawks routed the Pack by 20 points, 36-16.The Packers kept the game close for a half, but then the wheels fell off entirely in the second half.

5 bold predictions for Big Ten in 2014

The season is almost upon us and in a few weeks y’all can bring out the sharp words on Twitter and Facebook, letting us know how idiotic and stupid we were. Since we know that is going to happen, we might as well go B1G and go bold! If last season proved anything, there are plenty of surprises to come in the Big Ten. After all, who saw Minnesota winning eight games, or Tevin Coleman...

NC State's Russell Wilson, other NFL alums come home

The football season at NC State could not have ended worse, as the Wolfpack lost their final eight games to finish the season winless in ACC play and 3-9 overall under first-year head coach Dave Doeren. Doeren ended up signing a top-25 recruiting class a few months later but, like most rebuilding projects, it's going to take time. So it doesn't hurt to have influential alums like...

Russell Wilson’s goal is to be the best QB ever

Russell Wilson throws out first pitch for Rangers

ARLINGTON, Texas - After quarterbacking a team to a Super Bowl win, the pressure of throwing out the first pitch before a major league game was nothing to Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson. Wilson also happens to be a former minor league infielder whose baseball rights are still owned by the Texas Rangers. That's why Wilson was able to calmly zip a fastball into the glove...

Pete Carroll Teams Up With Wisconsin Basketball For April Fools’ Joke

Thoughts on the Super Bowl

I saw a stat the other day saying that the Super Bowl is not the American television success that we think it is, because there are more teevees not on for the Super Bowl than there are teevees on for it. Something like 55 million sets are on for it, and 65 million sets aren't, a difference of ten million. This is a compelling argument for about three seconds. Until you realize that...

Need An Underdog To Root For On Super Sunday? Consider Russell Wilson

It has probably been a long time since more than one player on a Super Bowl team stole the thunder of that team’s quarterback during Super Bowl Media Day, but such is the case for the Seattle Seahawks this year — led by the loud and proud cornerback Richard Sherman and the reclusive running back Marshawn Lynch.  So coming in third place in viewer interest is second-year quarterback...
