  • Fansided: Wisconsin Football Recruiting: Top five targets in class of 2020

    If you following Wisconsin football recruiting, then I don't need to tell you it has been an extremely slow few months for the Badgers on the trail in the class of 2020.

    To be sure, fans should be very pleased with the group that Paul Chryst and his coaching staff have put together so far. Headline by a pair of 4-star studs at offensive tackle in Trey Wedig (Wales, WI) and Jack Nelson (Stoughton, WI), Wisconsin's six-man class currently ranks a solid No. 27 in the nation and No. 6 in the Big Ten. In addition to Wedig and Nelson, the group currently includes:

    Wide receiver Chimere Dike (Waukesha, WI)
    Outside linebacker Cole Dakovich (Waukesha, WI)
    Offensive guard Dylan Barrett (St.

  • Bucky's 5th Quarter: Where do you see Wisconsin athletics five years from now?

    While we continue to push and trudge through this 2019 "offseason"--as we wait for both Joey and Sam Hauser's announcement of their next college basketball destination and the start of the Wisconsin football season in less than 100 days--our group of writers came together earlier this week to discuss some random topics that we will also throw out to you, the Bucky's 5th Quarter community.

    Four topics down this week, one final discussion to go, and it's a big, loaded questions with many variables.

  • Bucky's 5th Quarter: Wisconsin offers two more 2020 recruits

    The Wisconsin Badgers coaching staff continues to dish out offers to high school recruits in the current 2020 recruiting cycle.

    Earlier this week, we wrote about two wide receivers from the state of Hawaii receiving opportunities to play inside Camp Randall Stadium, and on Wednesday, a standout defensive lineman from Texas placed UW as one of his top eight programs.

    Now let's take a look at two new 2020 offers from Thursday from familiar areas where Wisconsin has seen previously success from.

  • Madison.com: Badgers runner Oliver Hoare on pace to defend NCAA outdoor 1,500 title

    University of Wisconsin junior Oliver Hoare won his section in the 1,500 in a time of 3:44.60 at the NCAA West preliminary track and field championships on Thursday in Sacramento, California.

  • Bucky's 5th Quarter: Who are the top 5 Wisconsin linemen to play in the NFL?

    While we continue to push and trudge through the offseason--as we wait for both Wisconsin football and Joey and Sam Hauser's announcement of their next college basketball destination--our group of writers came together earlier this week to discuss some random topics that we will also throw out to you, the Bucky's 5th Quarter community.

    On Monday, we published our chat about what plays we would love to see more of from Wisconsin football, if and when appropriate. Today, we dive into Badgers at the next level. See we ask:

    Who are your top 5 offensive linemen from Wisconsin to ever play in the NFL?

  • Bucky's 5th Quarter: Wisconsin receives projected accolades from Athlon Sports for 2019

    With spring football in the rearview mirror and fall camp not yet upon us, it is time to #embracedebate and look at what all the preseason rags are saying about this year's Wisconsin Badgers football team.

    There are a few things that you won't need anyone to tell you: Jonathan Taylor is the best running back in the Big Ten (and possibly the country); a Wisconsin offensive lineman will be one of the five best in the conference, and Rutgers will struggle to field a full team, let alone get someone on a preseason all-conference team.

  • Bucky's 5th Quarter: Wisconsin offers 2020 wide receiver recruits from Hawaii

    As we approach June and the likely start of a very busy recruiting month for Wisconsin with camps and official visits, reported offers continue to pop up from Paul Chryst's coaching staff.

    This time, two high school teammates from Hawaii tweeted out the news early this week. These two wide receivers come from the same program as Wisconsin linebacker target Nick Herbig, who himself will reportedly take an official visit to UW the weekend of June 7.

    Can Wisconsin make some noise in these two recruits' respective recruiting processes? That is yet to be determined, but it is interesting the Badgers have offered more projected wide receivers in this year's class.

  • Bucky's 5th Quarter: An early look at the Illinois Fighting Illini

    It's never too early to write about next season!

    With spring football completed for college programs, and with what feels like a long offseason until late July/early August, B5Q wanted to check on the Wisconsin Badgers' 2019 opponents--with the help of some of our SB Nation friends.

    Note: These previews will not be in the chronological order of the games, but we hope to get through all of them at some point before fall camp rolls around.

    On Oct. 19 inside Memorial Stadium, Wisconsin will look to beat Illinois for the tenth straight time in a Big Ten West showdown.

  • Madison.com: Badgers softball team halts Sooners' streak, but Oklahoma bounces back, ends UW's season

    NORMAN, Okla. -- If the top-ranked Oklahoma softball team goes on to win its fifth national championship this season, Sooners coach Patty Gasso just might send a note of thanks to University of Wisconsin coach Yvette Healy and the Badgers.

    The Sooners advanced to their 10th consecutive NCAA Super Regional on Sunday with a 2-0 victory in the championship game of the double-elimination Normal region. But the day's biggest news came hours earlier, when UW junior pitcher Kaitlyn Menz led the Badgers to a 2-1 victory over the Sooners, halting Oklahoma's 41-game winning streak.

    Menz allowed a leadoff home run to Sydney Romero in the first inning, then shut down the Sooners (53-3) en route to a five-hitter.

  • Bucky's 5th Quarter: Wisconsin in Top 5 for 2020 LB Nikhai Hill-Green

    On Friday night, Baltimore (St. Frances Academy) linebacker Nikhai Hill-Green announced his top five schools. The Wisconsin Badgers made the final cut along with Indiana, Michigan, Pitt and Purdue.

    247Sports composite rankings and Rivals rate Hill-Green as a three-star outside linebacker for the 2020 class, though 247Sports' standalone rankings designate him as a four-star prospect in this recruiting cycle.

    Rivals reports 32 offers for the mid-Atlantic 'backer. Outside of the four Big Ten schools and Pitt in his declared top five, Boston College, LSU, Minnesota, Nebraska, N.C. State, Virginia Tech and West Virginia all presented opportunities for Hill-Green to play football at the next level.

  • Bucky's 5th Quarter: Wisconsin offers 2020 OL Tanor Bortolini

    Wisconsin already boasts four projected linemen as verbal commits in its 2020 class--three of which already hail from the Badger State. It appears the coaching staff has extended another opportunity to an in-state big man.

    On Friday night, Kewaunee, Wis., offensive lineman Tanor Bortolini announced he received an offer from Wisconsin.

    Based on Bortolini's conversation with BadgerBlitz.com's Jon McNamara, Wisconsin foresees him on the inside of the offensive line as a center or guard.

    Rated a three-star recruit by 247Sports, a two-star by Rivals, the latter recruiting service reports 20 offers for Bortolini.

  • Bucky's 5th Quarter: An early look at the Purdue Boilermakers

    It's never too early to write about next season!

    With spring football completed for college programs, and with what feels like a long offseason until late July/early August, B5Q wanted to check on the Wisconsin Badgers' 2019 opponents--with the help of some of our SB Nation friends.

    Note: These previews will not be in the chronological order of the games, but we hope to get through all of them at some point before fall camp rolls around.

    Last season, the Purdue Boilermakers almost, almost broke their years' long losing streak to Wisconsin--but a fourth quarter comeback led to a triple overtime victory for Bucky.

  • Bucky's 5th Quarter: An early look at the Nebraska Cornhuskers

    t's never too early to write about next season!

    With spring football completed for college programs, and with what feels like a long offseason until late July/early August, B5Q wanted to check on the Wisconsin Badgers' 2019 opponents--with the help of some of our SB Nation friends.

    Note: These previews will not be in the chronological order of the games, but we hope to get through all of them at some point before fall camp rolls around.

    On Nov. 16 inside Memorial Stadium, Wisconsin will hope to upend the Nebraska Cornhuskers in what could be a critical divisional showdown.

  • Bucky's 5th Quarter: Wisconsin offers 2020 recruits Noah Arinze, Len'neth Whitehead

    Earlier this week, B5Q highlighted five prospects offered by the Wisconsin Badgers in recent times. Since then, the coaching staff offered two more opportunities this week to out-of-state recruits who are in this current recruiting cycle.

    As a reminder, UW currently holds six verbal commitments for the class of 2020, five of whom hail from the state of Wisconsin. In the next month with official visits forthcoming from other high school prospects, it should be interesting who joins projected linemen Trey Wedig, Jack Nelson, Dylan Barrett and Ben Barten, wide receiver Chimere Dike and outside linebacker Cole Dakovich as Badgers verbal pledges.

  • Madison.com: Field House exterior renovation projects planned to begin in early 2020 gain approval

    Projects to clean up the exterior of the University of Wisconsin Field House and construct a new plaza outside its south doors have been given a thumbs-up.

    Jason King, UW's senior associate athletic director for capital projects and operations, told the Athletic Board's finance, facilities and operations committee on Wednesday that the work, totaling just under $6 million, was approved by the State Building Commission.

    An exterior renovation to the 88-year-old building will include new, historically accurate doors and windows that will increase energy efficiency. The price tag was reported at $2.995 million, 92% of which will be paid for from UW athletics gift funds.
