Earlier this morning the Big Ten released the full conference basketball schedule and Wisconsin now has their full 2012-13 schedule to look at. If you want to see the full schedule, visit here. We'll analyze it and breakdown how the conference slate looks later today for your viewing pleasure.no comments
Three 21-year-old Madison men were arrested Tuesday for their alleged connection with the beating of Wisconsin running back Montee Ball on August 1.
Wendell J. Venerabale, Deonte J. Wilson, and Robert A. Wilks were all taken into custody by Madison Police and will likely be facing battery charges, although none of them have been officially charged as of this writing.
Many around the nation are quick to dismiss the chances that Northern Iowa has against the Badgers in the season opener. But, as Andy Baggott of the Wisconsin State Journal points out, the Panthers are used to mixing it up with top-level, non-conference competition.no comments
IT'S FOOTBALL TIME and we covered just about every angle possible and gave you all the insight into the Badgers 2012 football season as Andy and Arman broke it all down in tonight's episode of Badgers Power Hour.
First off we were joined by the one and only Mark Packer of Sirius XM's College Sports Today to break down Wisconsin and the Big Ten as a whole.
We also played a little "good, bad, and ugly" as well as some "over/under" while looking at the Badgers fall camp and the season at hand. So make sure you check it all out below.
On a side note, we'll be doing our Ohio State episode of The B1G Countdown to Kickoff tomorrow morning at 10:30amET/9:30amCT so make sure you check that out as well.
Let’s be honest, as soon as Danny O’Brien announced that he would be taking his talents to Madison, he immediately became the favorite for the starting quarterback spot in 2012.
While the end result surprised no one, the road to get there was a bit unexpected.
The coaching staff did its best to create a competitive environment and, heading into the season, it appears to have paid dividends. Head coach Bret Bielema raved that this may be the deepest group of quarterbacks he has ever had during his tenure at Wisconsin.no comments
Alright, after a bit of off time we're doubling down on our attempt to remind you of what was said and thought about each position entering camp and where we now stand heading into game one against Northern Iowa.
If you've missed any of this weeks revisits it was started with the Wide Receivers and it's now time to move on to the other side of the ball.
Also, if you missed our preview before camp and want to know more about what the heck we're talking about, you can find our Linebackers preview here.
This was and is a position that didn't hold much in the way of mystery as we all know that Chris Borland and Mike Taylor are both all-Big Ten and all-American caliber of players. The one spot that had a tiny question mark was at the weak side linebacker position where Ethan Armstrong was coming off of hip surgery.no comments
Last week the Badgers and Bo Ryan were snubbed by five star recruit Semi Ojeleye. The 6'6" small forward narrowed his list of potential teams from 11 to 4, and the Badgers did not make the cut. Ojeleye, ranked 38th in ESPN's top 100, had been recruited by Bo Ryan for over a year, but unfortunately Wisconsin was not on his final list of Duke, Indiana, Stanford and Oregon.
So, where does that leave the Badgers 2013 class at? Well, as of now the Badgers have three verbal commits:
1) Point Guard Bronson Koenig of La Crosse, Wisconsin. Bronson was the Badgers' first 2013 commit, and as of now the gem of the class. Koenig has a four star ranking and is the 23rd best point guard in the class.
While we didn't get to see much of Koenig last year thanks to a freek thumb injury, we know this guy is quite the talent. Playing AAU ball for the Wisconsin Swing this summer, Koening showed a very high quality of play, even against some of the top competition. He's a great ballhandler, smart playmaker, good shooter, and overall a complete basketball player. It's no coincedence that Koening and Bo Ryan fell in love with each other (in basketball terms of coruse) almost instantly.no comments
With the Wisconsin football team less than a week away from opening its season against Northern Iowa at Camp Randall Stadium, the roster is still taking shape.
Head coach Bret Bielema clarified the status of several positions on the depth chart during a press conference Monday at the Camp Randall Media Center.no comments
The weather may not have been kind to the fans in attendance, but those that braved the rain were treated to the Badgers 3rd straight shutout as they routed visiting Loyola-Chicago 4-0 at the McClimon Soccer Complex on Sunday afternoon.
With the win the Badgers moved to 3-0-0 on the year and have become the first team since the 2005 team to achieve that feat. In fact that 2005 team got off to a 3-0-1 start.
During the first half the Badgers opened up a lead they would never let go of. Wisconsin opened up the scoring in the 21st minute on McKenna Meuer's header off of a corner kick. It turned out to be the game winning goal and was also her 1st goal of the season.
Following up just 11 minutes later was Monica Lam - Feist's 2nd of the season to make it 2-0. She was assisted by Kodee Williams and Molly Laufenberg to double up the Ramblers.no comments
Wisconsin volleyball got off to a good start to their season this weekend, reaching the final of the USF Invitational before being bounced by Creighton in the championship match. The Badgers won the first set, but would drop the next three in losing their first match and first sets of the season.
Creighton took the title by a score of 17-25, 25-14, 25-20, 25-22 to go 3-0 in the tournament.
Wisconsin got to the final by winning every set along the way to defeating USF 3-0 and fellow Florida school UCF 3-0 to start the year off right.no comments
Just before camp began earlier this month we took a look at where Wisconsin stood at the various position groups for you. Well, camp is over and with it things have changed at multiple positions. It begs the question of just how accurate we were in predicting starters and/or giving you players to watch.
With that, it's only fair that we revisit the things that were said and give you the update on the roster as we enter game week for the first time in 2012.
Up first is our revisit of the most unknown position group entering camp, the wide receivers.
Before we get into it, if you want a history lesson on where we stood at the beginning of camp, check out our preview here.
We thought that Jared Abbrederis and Jeff Duckworth were for sure bets to become starters, but that wasn't exactly the case. Duckworth is on the two deep, but sits behind players with vastly less experience than him.
It just proves that experience, while helpful, isn't the end-all-be-all that some make it out to be.
