Potential CFP pitfalls for Wisconsin

What could keep Wisconsin from making it to the College Football Playoff in 2017? ESPN’s Heather Dinich looked at the biggest potential pitfalls for playoff contenders, including the Badgers.

Big year for Isaac Guerendo

Wisconsin’s decision to offer Isaac Guerendo, and his decision to commit to them, is paying off for both parties as the Class of 2018 wide receiver is lighting opposing defenses up in the early portion of his senior year.

Chris Orr loves to talk and tackle

After missing nearly all of 2016 because of a right knee injury, Wisconsin linebacker Chris Orr is back to doing what he loves — tackling and talking. Here’s the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel’s Jeff Potrykus on the charismatic Orr being back in the middle of defense and as loud as ever.

John Chenal talks about his decision

The Badgers gained a commitment from preferred walk-on John Chenal earlier this week. Jesse Temple caught up with the 2018 linebacker to talk about his decision to come to Wisconsin, which came less than a week after his brother, Leo, became the Badgers first commitment in the Class of 2019.

What the film said about the win at BYU

Jason Galloway of the Wisconsin State Journal broke down the video of the Badgers’ 40-6 win at BYU last Saturday, and it showed the protection quarterback Alex Hornibrook received played a big factor in his success.

Former Wisconsin star Joe Thomas hasn’t missed a snap in his NFL career, passing the 10,000-consecutive play mark on Sunday. On Tuesday, the Cleveland Browns released a video tribute to Thomas with guys that he played with and that coached him taking time to praise the 10-time Pro Bowl selection.

Hockey team delivers tickets

In what has become somewhat of a tradition among several of Wisconsin’s teams, a number of hockey players and coach Tony Granato went around Madison on Tuesday delivering season tickets to fans.
