Badgers defense making easy transition to Justin Wilcox as DC

There is no denying the special level that Wisconsin’s defense has played at the last three years. Few defenses have been as consistently great across the board as UW’s was, but as 2016 approaches there is a whole lot that is new. Chief amongst the new pieces to the puzzle is a new defensive coordinator, […]

Top 5 Wisconsin Badgers of All-Time: Quarterback

Yes, the Wisconsin Badgers of today are an annual Big Ten contender and it seems as if history starts and stops with the 1990 season for some. However, the history of Badgers football is rich from the beginnings of the game through to today. With that in mind, we’re going to look in to the […]

Badgers solve QB scholarship issue with unique walk-on addition for 2017

Last week we talked about Wisconsin’s issue heading in to the 2018 season at quarterback. We also wondered if UW’s recent dolling out of multiple scholarship offers at the position was more a signal of taking two quarterbacks than anything else. On Tuesday, Chryst and Co. surprised many by gaining a preferred walk-on commitment early […]

Biegel, Clement named to preseason CFB Award watch lists

Such was the case on the first day of award watch lists being announced […]

5 Badgers sign UDFA contracts following 2016 NFL Draft

The 2016 NFL Draft was a rather uneventful one for those in Badger Nation, as just two former UW players heard their names called in the seven-round extravaganza in Chicago this weekend.

Post-Spring Wisconsin Badgers football observations

After what could only be described as a muted, yet entertaining 2016 spring game, there certainly was plenty of things to observe about the state of the Wisconsin Badgers football program.

Hawaii transfer Nick Nelson commits to Badgers, waiting on admissions

Here we go again….the University of Wisconsin admissions department vs. the football team.

Often times […]

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 […]

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. With starter Joel Stave gone and very little in-game experience on the roster, a battle for the QB1 position was inevitable. However, we all should’ve known better because when was the last […]
