Wisconsin football and basketball are always the main topics in
, Land of 10’s daily Badgers notebook — but we cover news, notes and analysis across Badgers sports. Join us each morning
to get caught up on everything you missed in the world of Wisconsin football, recruiting, basketball and more.
Bradrick Shaw on the injury list
Wisconsin starting sophomore running back Bradrick Shaw was listed as questionable on the Badgers’ injury report released Monday. Shaw is dealing with a right leg injury, but coach Paul Chryst said Shaw did some work during the first practice of the week, which gives him a good chance of playing against Florida Atlantic on Saturday.
Starting to fix the mistakes
The score was 59-10, but Wisconsin knows for all the good it did in its win against Utah State there is plenty to correct. The Badgers have already started that process, writes Jesse Temple.
Wisconsin in the AP Top 25
The new AP Top 25 poll will be released Tuesday afternoon, but Land of 10 didn’t want to wait. Here’s our projection of where the Badgers, No. 9 last week, will end up in the poll this week.
Penalties an issue for the Badgers
Few things frustrate a coaching staff more than penalties, especially ones before the snap. So you can imagine the angst Chryst was dealing with in the wake of the Badgers being called for more penalties against Utah State (9) than in any game in 2016. The Wisconsin State Journal’s Jason Galloway examines the issues.
Scott Tolzien earns a start
Former Wisconsin signal caller Scott Tolzien has been named the starting quarterback for the Indianapolis Colts. Andrew Luck, the team’s franchise quarterback, remains out after undergoing offseason surgery.
Tyler Johnson’s road to playing time
With a season-ending injury to sophomore Zack Baun, the Badgers needed someone to step up and fill his role as the fourth outside linebacker. Enter Tyler Johnson, a sophomore who played quarterback in high school. Jeff Potrykus of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel has Johnson’s story.
Sam Dekker’s famous friend
Former Wisconsin basketball star Sam Dekker and Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers have become good friends since first meeting in 2013. But it’s unlikely either ever would have envisioned that more than four years later Rodgers would be called over to help fix Dekker’s sink. But that’s exactly what happened last weekend.
Wisconsin volleyball stays put
Despite winning the K-State Invitational in Manhattan, Kan., during the Labor Day weekend, the Wisconsin volleyball team remained ranked No. 6 in the latest AVCA poll.
