Injuries, inconsistent play hinder Badgers

Against Minnesota Oct. 29 and Nov. 1, the Wisconsin women's hockey team played its best hockey of the year, functioning well with strong goaltending and a high-powered offense that helped the Badgers to a pair of victories over their toughest competition of the year. It was a big difference from the same team that faced North Dakota, Bemidji State and Ohio State earlier in the season and split each of those series with first-game losses.

Impatient fans should heed warnings

When the Michigan Wolverines take the field at Camp Randall Stadium Saturday, they won't be looking to shore up a resume for a BCS berth or gearing up for a dynamic rivalry game with Ohio State. No, on Saturday they will be fighting for their first FBS win since September and their best chance for bowl eligibility.

Badgers ride strong defense to lopsided win

On UW-Superior's first possession, junior forward Jake Smith sent a high, inaccurate pass to junior forward Marcus Helland, who made the catch, hung in the air and banked it home to complete the alley-oop, sending oo's and ah's through the Kohl Center. But it was all downhill from there for the Yellowjackets, as Wisconsin cruised to an 80-47 preseason win.

Bielema reflects on close call with IU

Coming off its most complete team performance and most impressive win of the season a week ago against Purdue, the Wisconsin football team had to squeak out a victory against Indiana Saturday. Although the running attack for the Badgers was dominant throughout, Wisconsin had trouble at times on defense, especially containing big plays.

Rodgers not worthy of praise from Packers

Being a displaced sports fan creates many annoying situations. You hear a lot more about the hometown teams than you want to, you get a lot of biases about how good the local teams are and you're stuck watching Packers-Lions on Sunday afternoons instead of a good game.

UW splits series with rival Minnesota

With rival Minnesota in town for a weekend series, the Wisconsin men's hockey team played with a high level of energy on both Friday and Saturday night. However, energy does not always equal execution, and Wisconsin looked sloppy at times during the series split with its neighbor to the northwest.

NBA offers exciting regular season storylines

As a self-proclaimed NBA fanatic, it's frustrating when year after year I'm unable to convince most people to follow the league's regular season. This is especially difficult with a packed NFL schedule and the World Series going on at the same time.

Top-ranked Penn State UW's next test

Coming off another inconsistent weekend in which the Badgers (6-6 Big Ten, 11-10 overall) split games, the Wisconsin volleyball team looks forward to facing two quality opponents at home in top-ranked Penn State and Ohio State this weekend.

Border Battle, raucus Kohl Center await Badgers

After the dominating showcase the Wisconsin men's hockey team put on display last weekend, it would usually be difficult to imagine how the team could come out with the same intensity again this Friday and Saturday.  But with the Border Battle against Minnesota this weekend, the energy level should be higher than ever when the Minnesota Golden Gophers come calling.
