On eve of first playoff ranking, Badger fans need to prepare for rude awakening

The Chinese philosopher Confucius once said that “Real knowledge is to know the extent of one’s ignorance.” William Shakespeare echoed him, saying “The fool doth think he is wise, but the wise man knows himself to be a fool.” If these erudite thinkers were indeed correct, then I must be the wisest man of all time when it comes to the College Football Playoff rankings.


Adhering to tradition ensures UW's future

First things first: Wisconsin’s offense needs to get on the same page, the special teams need to fix whatever happened on that punt, the defense needs to stop waiting until their opponent is beyond midfield to start making stops, the mistakes and penalties need to be cut down and Jonathan Taylor needs to be a serious Heisman candidate.

Wisconsin's backup quarterback decision signals win-now mentality

Much like Lil Wayne in the 2008 pop hit “Let it Rock” by Kevin Rudolf, I’m back like I forgot something (note: my similarities with Mr. Wayne end there).

Moyes’ tirade indicates larger issue of sexism in ‘locker room banter’

With Sunderland nestled firmly in last place of the English Premier League, club manager David Moyes is unsurprisingly under plenty of public pressure and scrutiny. Last week, however, he was thrust into the global spotlight for a different reason. A video of Moyes verbally abusing BBC journalist Vicki Sparks, after a March 18 game, leaked with the 53-year-old responding inappropriately to a question about the added pressure of having the club’s owner in attendance. “You were just getting a wee bit naughty at the end there, so just watch yourself,” Moyes said.
