Fun Facts: Iowa-Wisconsin

We go from the least-fun game of Iowa’s football season (North Texas) to objective followers, to perhaps the most-fun to anticipate (at Wisconsin).The most-fun game deserves Fun Facts. Coincidentally, here they are:1. Iowa has played in 20 other stadiums since its last game at Wisconsin, in 2009. Legends and Leaders. Never forget.2. Boise State (.972) is the only FBS team with...

Roster Updates Happen at Badgers Media Day

The 2015 Wisconsin Badgers football season gets underway in earnest on Monday, as fall camp finally opens up. With that comes changes to positions and the roster in general. Here are a few highlights of the changes made: #Badgers roster includes soph. WR Ricky Finco from Arrowhead.

Badgers freshmen watch: Game 5

Another game and once again a number of freshmen played for the Wisconsin Badgers. Some are making an impact, too, and look no further than the defense. For those who haven't seen the field, will they play at all? Seems doubtful any of the "true" freshmen will. Of the redshirt freshmen, no Jazz Peavy has been a bit of a surprise while T.J. Watt, who was expected to play in 2014,...

Badgers freshmen watch - Game 2

Playing an FCS team is often a chance to get younger players some on-field chances and Wisconsin is no different. After playing six "true" freshman in Week 1 against LSU, three more saw the field against Western Illinois. If my math is correct -- and even I can figure this one out -- that makes nine "true" freshman to play for the Badgers this season, or one more than UW used all...

Social life: Reasons vary, but most #Badgers on Twitter

MADISON, Wis. -- Gary Andersen stood inside a back hallway that connects the studios at ESPN headquarters in Bristol, Conn., three weeks ago and pulled out his smartphone. Wearing a light gray suit, white button-up shirt and red tie, Wisconsin's football coach slowly began typing in a series of characters to mark the first tweet on his official Twitter account, verifying every step...

Badgers' inexperienced tight ends hoping to catch up quickly

MADISON, Wis. -- The questions about on-field production linger through fall camp, but Wisconsin's Sam Arneson makes assurances his conviction in the Badgers' tight end group is well founded. Yes, the team lost two players that combined to play in 100 college games and make 54 starts. And yes, that's a whole lot of knowledge and talent to replenish. Still . . . "I've told people...

T.J. Watt to 2014 Badger football

Wisconsin and the Watt family, nothing goes together better in the state (perhaps outside of brats and beer). Today we get a look at the youngest of the Watt family on the Badger roster, and that is redshirt freshman T.J. T.J.’s Story So Far: - Redshirted last season and is listed as a 6’5″, 235-pound tight end. - Was honorable mention all-state in his senior season. What to...

Badgers FB Derek Watt prepares for bigger role, possible TE duties

MADISON, Wis. -- A year ago, fullback Derek Watt touched the ball on approximately .004385 percent of plays during Wisconsin's entire football season. And if that number seems particularly miniscule to you, that's because it is. In total, Wisconsin ran 912 plays from scrimmage. Watt finished the season with one rush for eight yards and three catches for 20 yards with a touchdown...

2014 Badgers Spring Football Preview: Tight Ends

Another day, another look in to the Badgers 2014 Spring football camp. We previewed the defensive line last time out, and while all three starters are gone our next position group is equally barren entering this spring.  Up next is a look at the tight end position, a group that was vitally important to Wisconsin's offensive success last year. There are a lot of questions...
