Wisconsin Football: 5 bold predictions for September

The Wisconsin Badgers have already endured enough adversity in the early stages of the 2018 season than they should all season. First off, the team lost two of their top wide receivers in Quintez Cephus and Danny Davis as they deal with off-the-field issues. Then, one of their more experienced cornerbacks in Dontye Carriere-Williams announced he would be transferring out of the program to explore opportunities elsewhere- leaving the defensive secondary thinner than the team has seen in years.

Stanford Football: Should Cardinal be on upset alert vs San Diego State, again?

Way north California meets way south in an under-the-radar season opener as the Stanford Cardinal will welcome in the San Diego State Aztecs in a rematch of their close game played just a year ago. The phrase “Pac 12 after dark” turned into “in the dark” last year in San Diego, as the Aztecs prevailed after a power outage delay and took the game by a score of 20-17. Despite being in the same state, last season’s meeting was the first matchup between these two teams since 1988. The Cardinal hold

Michigan State Football: Spartans look to start strong vs Utah State

After surging onto the scene in 2017, the Michigan State Spartans will enter the new year with much higher expectations. Rewinding back to 2016, the Spartans were ranked in the top 10 to start the year, but after an unexpected downfall finished with just three wins on the year. Entering 2017, it was assumed the program would be heading in the right direction, but no one thought they would be competing for a Big Ten East divisional crown this quickly. Now, with the return of quarterback Brian L

Texas A&M Football: Jimbo Fisher era begins vs Northwestern St

The buzz surrounding the Texas A&M Aggies is for good reason. A brand new and prestigious coach and a treacherous schedule lies before them in the 2018 college football season. While the Aggies may not be on anyone’s preseason radar to make a CFP run in 2018, the schedule ahead of them presents a unique opportunity in that if they can pull a few (major) upsets, they can control their own destiny. That is how college football works. Winning the games in which you are not favored to win can help

Wisconsin Football: Badgers in position to make College Football Playoff push

A couple of years ago in 2016, the unranked Wisconsin Badgers football team shocked the college football world by rattling off several top 25 wins to begin the year- including LSU, Michigan State and Nebraska. While they missed the College Football Playoff (CFP) by quite a few metrics, the Badgers took a huge leap forward in 2017- missing the playoffs by virtually one game, a Big Ten Championship loss to Ohio State in Indianapolis. Entering that game with an undefeated regular season record, a

Wisconsin Football: Karé Lyles announces intent to transfer

The Wisconsin Badgers will be a little thinner at the quarterback position in 2018 as redshirt sophomore quarterback Karé Lyles announced via Twitter he would be leaving the program to pursue opportunities elsewhere. The once rated three-star quarterback out of Scottsdale, Arizona is a part of a family connection with the Badgers as he father Kevin played quarterback and tight end for the team back in the early 90s. Karé redshirted after joining the program in 2016, but did not see a single sna

NFL Draft 2018: R.J. McIntosh a multi-use defensive tackle

There can sometimes be a stigma of what type of player and physique defensive tackles hold. Often times they are not seen as the quickest or most athletic type, and that my be true. In order to be an effective defensive tackle, it is crucial there is a great deal of strength needed, but also speed. Miami Hurricanes defensive tackle R.J. McIntosh is the epitome of balance when it comes to strength and speed in that position and due to his versatility on the defensive side of the ball, he will po

North Carolina Football: Antonio Williams a major addition for Tar Heels

The North Carolina Tar Heels football program received good news on Monday, as former four-star running back Antonio Williams announced he would be leaving the Ohio State Buckeyes’ program and enrolling at North Carolina. While the former seventh-ranked running back in the country switching schools is big enough news in its own, the running back has dealt with controversy so far in his early collegiate career. Williams, out of New London, N.C., originally committed with the Wisconsin Badgers i

NFL Draft 2018: Georgia’s Trenton Thompson could be late-round steal

One of the more caution areas for NFL teams when looking at collegiate prospects is how healthy, or unhealthy, a player has been in recent years. Even when presented with the most skillful and talented players, a person’s medical history can sometimes sway his draft stock. This is the case for Georgia Bulldogs defensive tackle Trenton Thompson. While he appeared in 13 games in 2017, Thompson played in just 35 percent of the team’s defensive snaps and was unable to get a consistent presence with

NFL Draft 2018: Micah Kiser’s experience makes him NFL ready

It is a rarity in today’s world of college sports to find a player as talented as Virginia Cavaliers linebacker Micah Kiser stick around for all four years of eligibility. In a world of one-and-dones in college basketball and the three-year rule in football, some players find it extremely beneficial to stick around for an extra year, and this instance, Kiser is a prime example. As a sophomore, Kiser posted 117 total tackles and a career high 7.5 sacks and 65 solo tackles. Entering his junior ye

Wisconsin Football: Cancelling 2018 spring game a smart move

For some programs, the annual spring football game is an event many football fans look forward to- but for others, it is simply a teaser for the real thing. This is true for the Wisconsin Badgers, who do not gain the amount of attention from their fans for their spring game every year, compared to those of Big Ten foes Ohio State and Nebraska. While they are far from failing to fill the stadium, the spring game seems be just another practice to Badgers fans every year. The 2018 Spring Game for
