Wisconsin Badgers Spring Football 2015 Preview: Secondary

If the last two games were any indication, you would have believed the Badgers didn’t have much in the way of a secondary. Wisconsin gave up 257 yards passing to Ohio State in the Big Ten title game, while the UW defense also gave up 216 yards passing to Auburn in the Outback Bowl. Still, Wisconsin’s pass defense was one of the best in the country and the best in the Big Ten...

Badgers add Virginia CB to 2015 recruiting class

This past weekend was magical for the Wisconsin Badgers.

Opposition Research: Scouting the Maryland Terrapins offense

Yesterday we gave you the inside look at Maryland’s defense and today the offense takes a turn in the hot seat. However, unlike the defense, Maryland’s offense has shown up in a big way on more that one occasion. In fact, it nearly was enough to beat a Terps defense that gave up 40 points to West Virginia in non-conference play. Heck, this team even had enough to overpower an...

Badgers CB Shelton: 'I haven't been the player I know I can be'

MADISON, Wis. -- By nearly any measure, Sojourn Shelton's freshman season for the Wisconsin football team was a rousing success. He dazzled with his ball hawking skills at cornerback, created big plays in crucial situations and, quite often, was one of the Badgers' best and most consistent defensive players. In some respects, however, it proved to be the worst thing to happen to...

Notebook: Big plays, missed tackles a blight on Badgers defense

In Gary Andersen’s first class at UW he saved the commitment of Sojourn Shelton, and it proved to be a very good thing indeed as the freshman corner went on to become a bright spot in the Badgers secondary.

Badgers cornerback Shelton knows starting spot not assured

MADISON, Wis. -- Maybe it was the fever. Maybe it was complacency. Or perhaps it was a mixture of both. Whatever the case, Wisconsin cornerback Sojourn Shelton wasn't producing at an acceptable level at the midway point of Badgers spring practices a few weeks ago. So head coach Gary Andersen and cornerbacks coach Ben Strickland decided to let him know about it. "They expressed how...
