Senators Acquire Tommy Wingels from Sharks

Thanks to the announcement prospective top-six forward in Clarke MacArthur would miss the remainder of the season with a concussion, speculation as to how the Senators would fill that void led to wondering about whether the team would attempt to bring in a top-six forward or find a depth forward. The answer came yesterday afternoon when the Senators announced that the organization...

Thoughts on Senators Shutting Down MacArthur

I can’t imagine the emotions running through Clarke MacArthur’s mind at this moment. After a long and arduous recuperation process that left the Senators’ left winger admittedly feeling like he was symptom-free and physically ready to return to the lineup, he has been shut down for the remainder of the season after doctors refused to medically clear him. Leading up to this...

A fond farewell…to a new Badgers beginning

It is also the sentiment with which I come to you today. For today is the day the staff and I...

Koenig lifts Badgers past Michigan in ugly Big Ten affair

Winning ugly is sometimes part of the mix in the Big Ten conference. But there was nothing ugly about senior guard Bronson Koenig’s second half, as he pulled the Badgers over the finish line 68-64 against a game Michigan Wolverines squad. The win was Wisconsin’s 17th straight at home and its 11th in the last 12 games overall this season. However, it took a mammoth effort from...

A Decade in Wisconsin Badgers Recruiting: Top 5 Quarterback Recruits

Recruiting is the lifeblood of any college football program, and few understand the importance of player fit to program than the Wisconsin Badgers.

So, over the next few weeks we’re going to look back over the last decade some of...

5 Names to We’d Look to in Wisconsin Badgers Defensive Coordinator Search

What has been long reported as contract negotiations now appears to be a done deal, as Badgers defensive coordinator Justin Wilcox is off to Cal to become its head coach on a 5-year deal according to further reporting. That means UW will be in a position to find its third defensive coordinator in as many years. Not exactly ideal, but is this happening at a good time for the program...

Badgers make easy work of Buckeyes, 89-66

So much for a shooting slump. The Wisconsin Badgers took it to Ohio State early and often and there was no doubt about this one as the No. 13 Badgers (14-3, 3-1 B1G) took down the Buckeyes 89-66. Bronson Koenig went from ice-cold against Purdue to red-hot against Ohio State. He finished the game with a game-high 21 points, hitting 5 of 7 three-point shots on the night. It was the...

Projecting the 2017 Wisconsin Badgers Defensive Depth Chart

The first two seasons of the Paul Chryst era have set the bar rather high in Madison. A large part of the Wisconsin Badgers’ ability to get to 10-plus wins each of those two years has been its defense. Last season, a transition occurred as three-year defensive coordinator Dave Aranda left for LSU and in came Justin Wilcox. That move may have been a godsend, as Wisconsin’s secondary...

Projecting 2017 Wisconsin Badgers Offensive Depth Chart

There have been few coaching eras at the University of Wisconsin that have started as good as Paul Chryst’s has. Wisconsin finished this season with 11 wins and took the only win of any Big Ten team in four different New Year’s Six opportunities. It means some big time expectations have been set for the future of this program. But, the time to look backwards is over and it is...

Badgers men’s hockey makes emphatic return to the ice, blasts Michigan State

Michigan State may have come in with just four wins on the season and none in Big Ten play, but the Badgers needed this series to start out well for them if they are to get things rolling in the second half of the season. Getting off to a quality start hasn’t been the Wisconsin Badgers’ biggest strength so far this season. However, as the second half of the season began against...

Patrick Peterson loses QB bet, rocks out in dinosaur costume (VIDEO)

The Cardinals have one of the coolest pregame rituals in the NFL, with their friendly accuracy competition. We’ve seen players dressed as clowns, monsters and all sorts of things, but Patrick Peterson probably had the best costume so far, which he donned before Monday night’s game against the Jets. Here’s Peterson in a t-rex costume, for your viewing pleasure. https://platform...

Thus far, the Coyotes have played the fewest games of any team in the NHL, but they have the distinction of extracting the maximum number of points from their one game. While looking at their place in the standings might give the impression that they are slow out of the gate, but Coyotes GM John Chayka recently spoke with Fox Sports Arizona with a bold proclamation: “We expect...
