NCAA Football: Bowling Green at Wisconsin

Andersen lays down the gauntlet to Badgers youngsters

The Wisconsin Badgers football season hasn’t exactly gone to plan, sitting at 4-2 and entering an interesting stretch against the two newcomers — Maryland and Rutgers. After seeing Maryland take down Iowa and Rutgers get to bowl eligibility, Wisconsin can’t expect more of the same from the first half to work in the second half. […]

Bielema’s recruiting woes are finally catching up with Badgers

Just when we all thought we could move on from the man who jumped ship when things were getting good, we’ve been smacked in the face with the ramifications of Bret Bielema’s tenure all over again. Some thought he was crazy for leaving after the heights Wisconsin reached in his final three years at UW. Either […]

Opposition Research: Scouting the Illinois defense

Big Ten play is under way for the Badgers and after two weeks UW will already be done with the neighbors to the south in FIBlandia. At least this time the game is in the friendly confines of Camp Randall, where Wisconsin has won 10 of its last 11 Big Ten openers and haven’t lost […]

Wisconsin v LSU

Wisconsin freshmen have been Jekyll and Hyde in 2014

Wisconsin’s 2014 recruiting class was one of the more heralded groups the Badgers have ever put together, according to the recruiting services. However, since arriving on campus the class of 22 players have had a mixed bag of results.  In fact, one could say UW has had two sides to the coin for its freshmen […]

Andersen going 2 quarterbacks, but success depends on play calling

Wisconsin trotted Joel Stave out for the first time this season during the second quarter against Northwestern, and immediately the questions about who starts, who plays when and if there’s a controversy began. Stave going 8-of-19 for 114 yards, one touchdown and three interceptions didn’t really clear up matters all that much, considering he was […]

Badgers QB problems actually start with O-Line

Wisconsin didn’t have much going for it on Saturday afternoon in Evanston, Ill., so much so that Gary Andersen made the switch at quarterback. Joel Stave played for the majority of the game, and the results weren’t much better than what McEvoy was doing before being pulled.  It would be easy to blame Stave and […]

Opposition Research: Northwestern defensive scouting report

No more non-conference, time for the real games. While it was nice to experiment with a tougher non-conference opponent, the last three games have felt like the same old boring, going through the motions type games. While Northwestern may not burn the fire of Minnesota or Nebraska or even Iowa for Badger fans, those in […]
