The new, non-BCS way of doing things will mean even more scrutiny on teams that could be eligible for the four-team playoff. One of the things the selection committee will be looking at is strength of schedule, something Wisconsin has struggled with for as long as I can remember.

Incoming freshman Nic Kerdiles was selected in the second round (36th overall) by his hometown Anaheim Ducks this morning. Kerdiles had hoped to be a first round draft pick, but I imagine being able to play at home will make up for sliding down a few spots. Kerdiles, a member of the U-18 National Team, winning gold at the last two World Junior Championships. In face, he had 2 goals and 3 assists i...

Reader's Digest, the known authority of sports, has compiled a list of the best football stadiums. The list ranges from high school to pro stadiums and Wisconsin holds two spots and a third in an honorary sort of way. Not a bad way to represent, Badger State! The list includes Camp Randall, Lambeau Field and the Rose Bowl, but Wisconsin is in great company with Notre Dame Stadium, The Big House an...

Chuck Schwartz over at Bucky's 5th Quarter has some interesting quotes from the brass of the Ducks during an Anaheim fan day about former Badger Justin Schultz. Schultz has reportedly signed his papers to leave UW after his junior year. He was drafted by Anaheim in 2008 and by new CBA rules, would become a free agent after his fourth summer. The Ducks get 30 days from his removing himself from sch...

There's no college these days that isn't using Facebook and usually Twitter to recruit kids. The strategy "get them where they are" couldn't be more evident than when you make your presence known on Facebook and Twitter. But could Pinterest be a new outlet for teams? While Pinterest is predominantly used by women, this basketball blog points out that Wisconsin is using Pinterest well and that ther...
