It means preparations for Alabama on Sept. 5 are hitting their stride and the chances to impress coaches and gain snaps are winding down as well. With the shift in focus, its time to look back on the open part of Paul Chryst’s first fall camp in charge of the UW program and see where...

Should WR depth be more of a concern in Madison?

Depending on who you talk to or read, there are wild swings in how the Badgers run game will looks in 2015. History tells us that will be fine so lets focus on the passing game. With Joel Stave at the helm, the team has stability under center but does he have anyone besides Alex Erickson to throw to? Tom Dienhart of the Big Ten Network wondered that very thing when he watch the...

Bloguin Top 50: No. 12 — Wisconsin

Wisconsin Badgers 2014 Record: 11-3 (beat Auburn in Outback Bowl) 1 Burning Question: Can the Badgers find a passing game? There’s really no big secret to the Wisconsin Badgers’ success — they’ll run the ball right down your throat and kill you with the passing game when you sell out against the run. Over the past two seasons, however, the Badgers have slowly regressed...

Is Tanner McEvoy the Wisconsin Badgers secret weapon for 2015?

Safety, Quarterback, Wide Receiver — those are the positions former JUCO transfer Tanner McEvoy has played since coming to the Wisconsin Badgers in 2013. The problem is, McEvoy has never really found a home in his first two seasons. He’s played just a handful of games at quarterback, started a few at safety and has had minimal snaps as a wide receiver in game action. It makes...

July Could Be Big For Changing Course at Wide Receiver for UW

The 2014 Wisconsin Badgers had what it needed on defense, it certainly had the run game. However, there was one glaring weakness that stopped it from being a true national contender — any resemblance of a fearful passing game. It was never more on display than in the opening and closing losses for the Badgers. It was partly a quarterback thing, as Tanner McEvoy opened up cold and...

Tanner McEvoy has become the Badgers 'MacGuyver'

Tanner McEvoy wanted to be the starting quarterback at Wisconsin for the last two seasons. That's a goal that he accomplished last season in a year where he split time with Joel Stave.Now that Paul Chryst has taken over the team and named Stave the starter, McEvoy's role has evolved even more than he could have anticipated. He lined up on both sides of the ball during the spring...

Report: Badgers add 2nd QB to 2015 class

Wisconsin has done a miraculous job of keeping its 2015 class together after Gary Andersen left and the Badgers searched for a new head coach. As Paul Chryst was quickly hired, the 2015 class continued to stay committed to Wisconsin, including prized dual-threat QB Austin Kafentzis. He won’t be the only quarterback in this class either, as our recruiting partners at Badger247 are...

Notebook: McEvoy without a position but proves he belongs on field

TAMPA, Fla. -- The way Tanner McEvoy sees it, he's a man without a position. But given the way McEvoy performed during Wisconsin's 34-31 overtime victory against Auburn on Thursday at Raymond James Stadium, he may already have his answer. McEvoy played sparingly in his role as the team's backup quarterback, as he has for the latter part of this season. However, he played his first...

Two sides to every story: McEvoy to play QB, S in bowl game

MADISON, Wis. -- The Tanner McEvoy Quarterback Experience has not been shelved completely. But based on practice developments this week, McEvoy very well could spend Wisconsin's bowl game as a rare two-way player, with a particular emphasis at safety. That's the position McEvoy was seen playing during portions of Thursday's practice, an installation day as Wisconsin (10-3) prepares...

QB platoon maturing for No. 14 Wisconsin

MADISON, Wis. (AP) A two-quarterback system is working out just fine after all for No. 14 Wisconsin. Starter Joel Stave is the pocket passer. Tanner McEvoy is the change-of-pace running threat. The Badgers (9-2, 6-1 Big Ten) are undefeated since coach Gary Andersen started alternating the tandem behind center in Week 6, with the frequency of switches picking up as the comfort level...

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...

Playing the percentages: Badgers QBs know they have to improve completion rate

MADISON, Wis. -- Joel Stave and Tanner McEvoy each acknowledge a completion rate of 60 percent is deemed the general benchmark for success in most college football programs. Connect on three out of every five passes, they say, and you've got the makings of a special offense. Of course, recognizing the importance of that statistic and actually achieving the feat have fallen into two...

Sunday Morning Hangover: Badgers need to go back to drawing board at QB

After seeing the Badgers rack up 89 points and give up seven over the last two weeks, one could easily think all is right in the world of Wisconsin Badgers football. With the Badgers winning 37-0 over Rutgers that assumption could be even easier. However, reality is that is far from the case, especially at the quarterback position — and a second viewing of the contest on Saturday...

Wisconsin Badgers vs. Rutgers Scarlet Knights: Preview, Predictions and Prognostications

After beating down the first of two-straight newcomers to the Big Ten last week, the Badgers make a trip out east to take on a completely unfamiliar Rutgers Scarlet Knights team. For a few members of the Badgers team it will be a homecoming of sorts, as three players will return to their home state (Sherard Cadogan, Corey Clement and Tanner McEvoy).

Badgers buying into two-quarterback system

MADISON, Wis. -- When Wisconsin's coaching staff opted to implement a two-quarterback system halfway through this season, none of the players appeared to have any idea how it would work. Least of all, it seemed, quarterbacks Joel Stave and Tanner McEvoy. "I've never been in a two-quarterback system before," Stave said this week. "I'd seen Northwestern do it a little bit last year...
