Taiwan Deal, Bradrick Shaw giving hope for future at running back

Last season was certainly a let down at one of the premier positions for the Wisconsin Badgers – running back. Between the lost season of expected star Corey Clement, an offensive line trying to find its identity and a very inexperienced group behind Clement, the Badgers struggled mightily to find a consistent run game all […]

Could Dan Voltz make selfless move to guard for Badgers?

Dan Voltz came in to Wisconsin as one of the most highly touted recruits of the 2012 recruiting class. He was the No. 100 ranked player in the country and the No. 8 guard in the nation as well. But, since arriving in Madison Voltz’s home has been at center and been an award-winning center […]

Badgers lock down last piece of in-state 2017 recruiting class puzzle

With the return of Paul Chryst, a renewed emphasis was placed on in-state recruiting for the Wisconsin Badgers. That was obvious with the 2015 and just completed 2016 recruiting classes. However, unlike those two classes the 2017 class will have a total lockdown on the in-state products. That’s because 4-star offensive tackle Tyler Beach of […]

Is there really such a thing as QB battle in 2016 Badgers spring camp?

The seemingly annual tradition of a spring “quarterback battle” was once again all the talk as the 2016 version of the Wisconsin Badgers.
