Beyond the Box Score: Wisconsin 84, Green Bay 60

So I’m glad Andy did such a great job with the postgame because I had the flu yesterday and while the game was on, deep analysis wasn’t going to be my forte. The first half ran as I was expecting, a close game with Sykes getting his, but the foul trouble was just too much. […]

Is this the best Wisconsin Badgers defense of all-time?

Week after week the Wisconsin Badgers defense seems to do something special. Whether it’s shutting an opponent out, holding them to under 100 yards rushing or a myriad of other things — it’s always something new and different each week. After helping out in a big way in the win over Nebraska it got us […]


Badgers add Virginia CB to 2015 recruiting class

This past weekend was magical for the Wisconsin Badgers. They managed to wrestle control of the Big Ten West away from everyone else in the division, had a record-setting offensive performance and the defense wasn’t too bad.

Did Melvin Gordon wrap up Heisman Trophy with record-setting performance?

On Saturday that hashtag was about as appropriate as possible, with Gordon setting the single-game FBS rushing record with 408 yards rushing.

Not a bad start to the season. Andy went into depth on the game last night, so I’m going to delve in a little deeper quick before the big football game this afternoon. Let’s jump into the box score.
