Wisconsin football and basketball are always the main topics in Bucky’s Breakfast, Land of 10’s daily Badgers notebook — but we cover news, notes and analysis across Badgers sports. Join us each morning to get caught up on everything you missed in the world of Wisconsin football, recruiting, basketball and more.
Another big offer for Graham Mertz

Tony Granato posterized
The term posterized is usually reserved for when someone gets dunked on in basketball. But it’s also valid in the way it was used by the Wisconsin hockey Twitter account Wednesday.
