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. Now, let’s talk a little about Camp Randall. Halftime of Saturday’s game featured a triumphant tribute to a century of history at our beloved stadium.

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). In my inaugural foray into the Sports section of the Daily Cardinal, whose Opinion section I’ve been known to frequent, I’m here to write about the position that could make or break the Badgers’ hope at an undefeated regular season, a Big 10 title shot and, dare I say it, an elusive playoff spot.

Wednesday word: LaVar Ball setting son up to fail with outlandish public behavior

LaVar Ball is loving his moment in the spotlight. What may have started as an honest attempt to drum up NBA interest for his son Lonzo, a projected Top 3 pick in the upcoming draft, has cascaded into the formation of his own celebrity and mass attention around his family. LaVar has said his son is better than Steph Curry, told of his desire for a $1 billion dollar shoe contract for his three sons and even appeared on ESPN’s First Take alone to spout that he could beat Michael Jordan in a one-on-one matchup.

Mondays with Rasty: 'What-ifs' will remain, but senior class Wisconsin's greatest

To have the greatest four-year stretch in Wisconsin basketball history end the way it did Friday night feels unfairly cruel and yet, almost heartbreakingly appropriate at the same time. The departing senior class of Nigel Hayes, Bronson Koenig, Vitto Brown and Zak Showalter will hold a special place in Badgers fans’ hearts for years to come given the crucial role they played in the program’s success over the last four seasons.
