A new era in Wisconsin has arrived. The Badgers added Oklahoma transfer quarterback Nick Evers to the roster on Saturday. Evers was a four-star recruit from Flower Mound High School in Flower Mound, Texas. Luke Fickell was in the market for a quarterback after three-year starter Graham Mertz entered the transfer portal earlier this month. Evers served as a backup to Dillion Gabriel at Oklahoma … Continue reading Is Wisconsin back?
One of my earliest sport’s traditions with my dad is getting the local paper for the Bowl Schedule. My dad and I would go down the list, alternating picks, and place a penny on the winner of each game. Before I get any comments like “What type of father would teach his young kid to bet” or “Gambling at your age will cause you to … Continue reading Bowling for Incompetence

Everyone would forgive you for writing Michigan off after the first offensive set for both teams. Ohio State marched down the field and scored with ease; Michigan’s Blake Corum limped to the sideline while JJ McCarthy looked ineffective.

Living in Michigan, I am no stranger to the Michigan-Michigan State rivalry. My rivalry started when I was four years old. I walked by a TV and saw Michigan State hosting Michigan and couldn’t understand how a state was playing itself. One of my aunts, a Michigan State grad, tried to explain it to me. She wasn’t successful, which was obvious when I asked if … Continue reading Another Week, Another Fight in the Tunnel
The scoreboard does not always tell the whole story, but there were two scoreboards that told the College Football world a lot about Michigan football. The first scoreboard was not at the Big House- it was hundreds of miles away in College Station. Penn State had just battled with Ohio State in what has to be considered a classic.
