Mertz was a four-star recruit in the 2019 recruiting class. Expectations were through the roof everyone thought that Mertz was going to lead this team back to prominence and playing in important bowl games. Didn’t quite happen. Inconsistency from Mertz and an outdated offense should have tempered those expectations a little bit. For sure Mertz didn’t play well in stretches but Wisconsin also did him … Continue reading Graham Mertz is entering the transfer portal.
It wasn’t pretty but it was enough. Graham Mertz snuck in on a go-ahead one-yard touchdown as Wisconsin escaped against Nebraska 15-14 to become bowl-eligible for the 21st straight season. This was a classic Big-Ten football game as Wisconsin won this game in the trenches. The Badgers ran for 235 yards as a team and were able to run the ball at will against a … Continue reading Wisconsin sneaks past Nebraska 15-14 after last-minute touchdown drive.
There was no way Wisconsin was losing this game. After dropping a tough double-overtime loss to Michigan State last week, Wisconsin came out firing on all cylinders in the first half. Fueled by a 29-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Graham Mertz to redshirt freshman Skylar Bell, you just had an idea this was a different Wisconsin team from last week. Safety John Torchio put the … Continue reading Wisconsin bounces back with 35-24 dominating performance vs Purdue.
I like this team Yes Wisconsin lost in double-overtime on Saturday, but since Jim Leonhard took over as interim head coach this team has played harder for Leonhard in two weeks than they had for Paul Chryst all-season.

It was time. Yesterday’s 34-10 loss to Illinois showed that a change needed to be made at head coach. Paul Chryst’s message of “we have to do better”, had fallen on deaf ears and his offensive scheme had grown stale over the past two years. Wisconsin was going to make this move if teams like Illinois, Iowa Rutgers Maryland and Illinois were doing things such … Continue reading Wisconsin fires Paul Chryst after eight seasons.
Wisconsin football in a nutshell this year: I’m embarrassed to be a Wisconsin fan right now. After suffering an embarrassing 34-10 loss to Illinois. I think we can agree that this is the lowest point in the Paul Chryst era. This was supposed to be a get-right game for Wisconsin after being trounced last week 52-21 by Ohio State which is understandable, but a 34-10 … Continue reading Badgers hit a low point in the Paul Chryst era with humiliating loss to Illinois.

A few words to sum up the game. Wisconsin had no shot to beat the Buckeyes on Saturday.

Ohio State fumbled the opening kickoff and had to start from their own 12-yard line but that didn’t matter … Continue reading CJ Stroud throws five touchdowns; as Ohio State throttles Wisconsin 52-21
Kentucky Wildcats vs Youngstown State Penguins This game is more of a nod from Kentucky’s head coach & Youngstown Ohio native Mark Stoops who just surpassed Paul William “Bear” Bryant for most wins as head coach at Kentucky. Youngstown State comes to Lexington as an undefeated team fresh off a 49-16 beat down of Dayton & a 31-14 win against Duquesne in week 1. Dremeatric … Continue reading Know Thy Enemy
