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.

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 […]
