The Wisconsin State Journal/Madison.com says they have a source with that information. Yesterday, it was said Ball would hold a press conf...

Monty Ball said today that he plans to submit paperwork to the NFL advisory committee to gauge his place in the upcoming NFL draft. Ball says that if the committee tells him that he's a likely first or second round pick, he will leave Wisconsin early and enter the NFL draft. If the committee comes back with any round lower than that, Ball says he will return to school for his senior year. Things h...

It took entirely too long for him to get the recognition he deserved, partyly because of an ill-fated push to get Russell Wilson in the top-5, but Montee Ball finally got the nod as one of the Top 5 Heisman finalists today. Ball is one touchdown away from trying Barry Sanders' record for the most touchdowns scored by any NCAA football player* Despite the fact that Ball won the Big Ten Running Back...

Well the holes in the defense and special teams were evident and the Badgers almost blew it again, but this time it was the Badgers that prevailed.

The Badgers refusal/inability to adapt to the Ohio State defense last night cost them the game. Ohio State knew that the heart of the Badger offense was the run game and they came prepared to keep Montee Ball in check. If you remove the late-in-the-fourth-quarter 40 yarder that Montee Ball had, the Badgers were able to muster just 49 yards rushing on 28 attempts. Ohio State was able to com...

There are many criticisms that are being rained down on Bret Bielema and the Badgers after last night's loss to Michigan State. The time management issue is a big one and a lot of people will talk about it, so I'm not going to spend a lot of time on it. I'll address the time management at the end of the blog post. Bret Bielema's post-game excuse for calling the timeouts during Michigan State's fin...
