  • Bucky's 5th Quarter: Wisconsin football: fall camp practice no. 5

    Led by Paul Chryst, the Wisconsin football team practiced in "half pack" for roughly two hours Monday morning on the grass field just north of Camp Randall Stadium. The practice marked the first full practice that media members were privy to seeing thus far, and the team's fifth practice of fall camp. Bucky's 5th Quarter has a breakdown of today's action below.

    On the injury front, the biggest news was that junior tight end Gabe Lloyd will miss the entire upcoming season with a leg injury. His injury is a blow to a tight end room that is in need of players to step up behind Jake Ferguson and Luke Benzschawel.

  • Bucky's 5th Quarter: Wisconsin football recruiting: One more big official visit weekend

    June is a rough month for the average college football fan. There hasn't been a meaningful game played since Clemson stomped Alabama in January and the first game of the new season isn't for another two months! Luckily, we at Bucky's 5th Quarter aren't "average college football fans," we are above average in both looks and hunger for knowledge on OFFICIAL VISITS FOR 'CROOTS!

    Last weekend saw a huge number of recruits on campus but hasn't led to any commitments as of yet. The Badgers, by all accounts, did make a good impression on everyone who was there and sometimes you just have to play the waiting game while recruiting 17-year olds.

  • Fansided: Wisconsin Football: Freshman Tight End Clay Cundiff

    Position: Tight End

    Hometown: Wichita, KS

    Rankings: 3-star (No. 49 TE, No. 1101 overall)

    Other offers: Kansas, Illinois State, Northern Iowa, South Dakota, South Dakota State

    Cundiff had been committed to Kansas since June at the time of his official visit to Madison for the Nebraska game last October. However, heading into that trip, the Wisconsin staff had made it clear that they would need a final decision from him one way or another by the end of the weekend. Simply put, Cundiff would need to let them know right away if he was going to cut ties with the Jayhawks and become a Badger or if he would be passing on that opportunity.

  • Bucky's 5th Quarter: Wisconsin football recruiting: Another big weekend coming up for the Badgers

    June is a rough month for the average college football fan. There hasn't been a meaningful game played since Clemson stomped Alabama in January and the first game of the new season isn't for another two months! Luckily, we at Bucky's 5th Quarter aren't "average college football fans," we are above average in both looks and hunger for knowledge on OFFICIAL VISITS FOR 'CROOTS!

    Last weekend's official visit-palooza has already led to one new commitment for the Badgers 2020 class AND one new commitment for the 2021 class. Not too shabby a weekend if you ask me.
