The Wisconsin Badgers earned a fifth WCHA playoff title and an eighth appearance in the NCAA tournament in the 2014-15 season, despite a ton of turnover and lots of “getting to know you” moments. Next season won’t be even close to that scenario, so the Badgers will look to build off the positives of an […]
Everyone knows the lifeblood of any program comes on the recruiting trail, but getting players on campus and to sign on the dotted line is a far cry from meaning success or failure. The other half of the equation is how the recruiting class plays once on campus. A two-star recruit can become a star, […]
There’s no denying that age is creeping up on Wisconsin Badgers men’s basketball head coach Bo Ryan. He is 67 years old and just went through one of the biggest roller coaster rides of his career. A year after losing in the national semi-final to Kentucky, his Badgers basketball squad reached the next step only […]
Big Rob, big ugly…whatever ESPN wanted to say, the St. Louis Rams pulled one over on a lot of teams and even those of us that cover the team. That’s because they selected former Badger right tackle Rob Havenstein with the No. 57 overall pick (No. 25 in the 2nd round). Most mock drafts and […]
It will be a long time, if ever, that Badger fans who witnessed the 2014 football season will forget the name Melvin Gordon. On Thursday, Melvin Gordon got his own moment to never forget — hearing his name called at the NFL Draft in Chicago. Gordon didn’t have as long as many mock drafts thought, […]
The 2011 Badgers football season looked like a disaster waiting to happen on offense, then entered graduate transfer quarterback Russell Wilson. What transpired on the field was the most prolific offense in Wisconsin Badgers history, and off the field it became a love affair between Wilson and Badger nation. He was exactly what you’d like […]
One of the lone bright spots on a dreadful season for Wisconsin Badgers men’s hockey was the play of forward Joseph LaBate. The senior was a leader on and off the ice and that leadership, along with his overall play has paid off. According to a release from the Badgers athletic department, LaBate has signed […]
We all know the world of college football recruiting keeps getting more ridiculous by the year, but you can bet the Wisconsin Badgers aren’t going to go as crazy as the rest of the folks in the CFB world. After all, UW isn’t offering 8th grad prospects (thanks LSU). However, Wisconsin head coach Paul Chryst […]
(Over the next few days we’ll be taking a look at each position on the Badgers roster and breaking down what took place during the 2015 spring camp) Wisconsin Badgers fans have been spoiled for a better part of a decade, with not only one, but usually two running backs that are nationally elite. Going […]
(Over the next few days we’ll be taking a look at each position on the Badgers roster and breaking down what took place during the 2015 spring camp) If there was one position few worried about this spring football camp it was the safety position. That’s because depth, experience and talented youth all existed. Previous […]

On a mild day in front of just over 9,000 fans, the Paul Chryst era got underway. It started with a nod to the Wisconsin Badgers’ basketball team, as Josh Gasser and Duje Dukan were guest coaches. It ended with Gasser getting a Badger Max bath following his team’s 35-7 drubbing of Dukan’s bunch. Along […]

So much for a quiet run up to an all-important spring game weekend on the recruiting trail for the Wisconsin Badgers and head coach Paul Chryst. Late Tuesday night the Badgers added a verbal pledge from in-state linebacker Mason Stokke. The Menomonie, Wis. native became the fourth pledge to the 2016 class, and the second […]
The Wisconsin Badgers 2014-15 season will go down in history as easily the best in school history. So, celebrating that special season was indeed warranted. That’s exactly what happened on Tuesday night at the sold-out season-end celebration. Special season. Special group. Good to honor the achievements of the
