The Badgers are playing in their third straight Rose Bowl and look to hall-of-fame coach Barry Alvarez to improve upon his perfect 3-0 record in Pasasdena. Stanford enters the game on a three-game streak in BCS …

With credit to the late Notorious B.I.G., the Wisconsin Badgers are going, going, back, back to Cali after demolishing the Nebraska Cornhuskers 70-31 in the Big Ten Championship at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis. The 70 points the Badgers (8-5) scored are tied for the second most in the modern era in school-history and tied …
It was especially disappointing to see the Badgers hurt them selves via the yellow flag after ranking first in the NCAA with only 2.92 penalties per game.

I Caesar Cliffius, hereby state that there are way too many bowl games in college football today. You may agree or disagree, but you have to admit with me, the bowl qualifications are too watered down. In 1923, there was one bowl game, the ?Grand daddy of them all? (as Jim Simpson would say) the …
