Editor’s note: College football is nothing without its fans, and its fans are nothing without their passion. In an attempt to capture that unique intensity and overreactability, we’ve asked sports editor and The South enthusiast Bremen Keasey to give us a weekly breakdown of college football happenings around the country like only a true fan could.
Wisconsin’s wide receiver depth, viewed as a considerable strength following the group’s strong performance down the stretch in 2017, recently took a hit when starters Quintez Cephus and Danny Davis were implicated in reports of a sexual assault in the spring. In need of a boost in the passing game, the Badgers have turned to young players who otherwise may not have seen much time. In Friday’s victory over Western Kentucky, Jack Dunn was one of those players.
The Badgers defense features seven new starters this year, three in the secondary alone. Of those new faces, Scott Nelson is the player to keep an eye on as the year progresses.
It wasn’t always pretty, but the Badgers offense showed flashes of what it is capable of, while their new-look defense impressed in Wisconsin’s 34-3 win over the Western Kentucky Hilltoppers.
Over eight months removed from their last game, the No. 4 Wisconsin Badgers football team (0-0 Big Ten, 1-0 overall) looked rusty throughout the first half of their 34-3 home win against the Western Kentucky Hilltoppers (0-0 Conference USA, 0-1 overall) on Friday night.
Redshirt sophomore cornerback Dontye Carriere-Williams announced that he would be leaving the Badgers’ football program.
After a summer of lofty expectations and pre-season hype, including a No. 4 ranking in the AP poll, Wisconsin football kicks off its 2018 season Friday night against the Western Kentucky Hilltoppers. For many on the Badgers’ new-look defense, Friday will be their first collegiate game.
Heading into a season with their highest preseason ranking in 18 years, unforseen adversity has been dropped on the Badgers’ doorstep. Wisconsin will be without its top two receivers for at least the first two games.
Sophomore wide receiver Danny Davis has been suspended for the first two games of the season Wisconsin head coach Paul Chryst announced Wednesday.
Junior receiver Quintez Cephus, who announced he is taking an indefinite leave of absence from the Badgers football team Saturday, has now been formally suspended from the team for a violation of the Student-Athlete Discipline Policy, according to a Monday afternoon statement from UW Athletic Director Barry Alvarez.
The Wisconsin football team will be without last year’s top receiving target for the indefinite future, following today’s announcement by UW-Madison junior Quintez Cephus that he is leaving the team due to potential “unspecified charges” to come from the Dane County District Attorney’s office.
The 2018 Wisconsin Badgers have a unique luxury when it comes to their incoming freshmen: If all goes according to plan, they may not be needed at all. The coaching staff, led by head coach Paul Chryst, has emphasized development and deference to the best interests of the team, which creates an ideal situation for upperclassmen to pay their dues and earn playing time as they progress. Even some of the program’s most highly touted recruits are expected to redshirt their freshman years to learn and mature. Yet in recent seasons, some players have proven to be too valuable to keep off the field, including Jonathan Taylor and Danny Davis in 2017 and Quintez Cephus and Bradrick Shaw in 2016. This year’s freshmen class, too, may have some players who will contribute sooner rather than later.
Six months ago, I started a self-imposed hiatus from writing as I began my semester in Italy. Having consumed all the carbohydrates I can reasonably eat and said “alora” more times than you can count, however, I’m back. No ordinary issue would have been sufficient to awaken “Unopinionated” from its slumber. This is a topic very near and dear to my heart.
After losing starting cornerbacks Derrick Tindal and Nick Nelson along with starting safety Natrell Jamerson, senior D’Cota Dixon is the lone returning member of the Badgers’ 2017 defensive backfield. Although he didn’t participate in spring camp, the first team All-Big Ten safety has become a mentor for the younger defensive backs.
If you’re looking for Jonathan Taylor during spring practice, chances are you will find him near the end zone with head coach Paul Chryst. This spring, the sophomore running back who broke the FBS freshman rushing record with 1,977 yards in 2017 is working to become a more complete player.
For senior nose tackle Olive Sagapolu, breaks during practice do not mean he stops working. Instead, in between drills and after practice, Sagapolu is constantly working to be a mentor for UW’s younger defensive linemen.
Friends, family, prospective recruits and alumni poured into the McClain Center Friday evening for Wisconsin football’s 12th spring practice. The Badgers were scheduled to play their Spring Game Friday night, but were forced to cancel due to inclement weather. Instead, UW held a full-contact scrimmage indoors.
Truly in-instate products: UW football uses homegrown food to improve player health, on-field performance
Linebacker Andrew Van Ginkel gave the Wisconsin Badgers a spark of energy during the Big Ten Championship Game. His first-half pick-six tied the game at seven and he later forced a fumble that led to a much-needed field goal that kept a sputtering UW offense in the contest.
