Borland recruiting loss stings, but not time to write off Paul Chryst and Co.

Tuf Borland was supposed to be wearing Cardinal and White — his dad was a Badger after all. Tristian Pipp was a shoo-in to be a Badger — after all, he’s from in-state and a legit three-star linebacker. Except neither of those two things have happened. Pipp, a two-sport star at Greenfield (Wis.) High School […]
