  • Wisconsin sits at 4-2 after a 10-point win over Illinois at Camp Randall Stadium. All four of the Badgers’ wins have come in Madison, while their two losses have come on the road at Northwestern and at a neutral site game in Houston against LSU.
  • A second team All-Big Ten selection in 2013, Melvin Gordon has emerged as one of the best runners in the country this season. Gordon is averaging an astounding 7.9 yards a carry and his 174.3 yards per game is tops in the country.
  • Joel Stave started at quarterback against the Illini after Tanner McEvoy had helmed the Badger offense for the first five games. McEvoy has passed for five TDs and 653 yards, while Stave has thrown for one score and 187 yards in his two games.
  • Junior wide out Alex Erickson leads the Badgers in re- ceptions (27) and receiving yards (319). Senior tight end Sam Arneson also provides a threat for Wisconsin with 14 catches for 228 yards and two touchdowns.
  • Gary Andersen became Wisconsin head coach after the 2012 season and led the Badgers to a 9-4 record and an appearance in the Capital One Bowl in 2013. Andersen ar- rived from Utah State where he led the Aggies to an 11-2 record and a top-20 national ranking in his final season.
Big Game James Throws Batting Practice Pitches to Giants as Madison Bu...

Where was all the bluster last night. Great pitching will always overshadow banging your chest after bloop singles. Eric Hosmer went a lame 0-4.

Here’s hoping for a giants sweep though I still believe KC wins in 7 games.

Though  was disappointed John Wall didn’t play, I cant blame the Wizards for not playing him. Kevin Seraphin was extremely impressive in defeat.

Turgeon Says on Media Day:

Opening statement:

“We’re excited about the year, obviously. We’ve had a great spring, summer and fall. It’s been really good for us and our guys have really improved. You’re going to love covering this team because you all like to be around winners and I know you like being around good kids. This has been a low-maintenance team and a lot of fun to coach. You’re going to have fun covering them just like I’m having a blast coaching them right now.”

On team chemistry:

“They are getting along great. I think we have a group of guys coming back who are very determined to be successful. They’ve worked extremely hard and we have a group of new guys who are very good basketball players and also very humble. I think there is a respect factor among our team. They respect each other’s abilities and this group seems to really get along between the lines and understand each other’s games. It’s been great so far. Now we haven’t gotten into playing time yet, it’s just practice time. Playing time changes things, but they’ve really been together. It’s been a good mesh.”

On the impact of the highly-regarded incoming freshman class:

“I don’t think our young guys are feeling pressure. I think there is a reason they are ranked so high, because they are such good players. They can handle it. It’s a good group of new guys.”

On moving into the Big Ten:

“The league is obviously a big change, but the thing with us is we are going from a great league to another great league. It’s not like we are dropping down six levels. Arguably we could be moving up. The Big Ten has been the best league in the country the last four years. They’ve had the most Sweet Sixteen teams, the most Elite Eights, the most Final Fours and the most first-team All Americans. It’s a heck of a league. It has coaches that I really respect. I’ve followed their programs and they do a tremendous job.”

Finally!!! Maryland Lands a Point Guard –Jaylen Brantley from Od...

Excerpt from terrapintimes.com

It was a weekend full of highs and lows for junior college point guard Jaylen Brantley (Odessa College/Odessa, Texas). The 5-foot-11, 175-pound Springfield, Mass., native took what he called an “outstanding” official visit to Maryland Oct. 17-18, but on the night of Oct. 18 he learned one of his best friends had died in an automobile accident.

Brantley left College Park, Md., early for Massachusetts, although he did ultimately commit to Mark Turgeon’s program on the morning of Oct. 20. Brantley was not immediately available for comment following his UMD pledge, although his mother, Angela Cayode, who accompanied her son on the visit, confirmed the commitment.

“Jaylen did just commit to Maryland, and we’re very, very excited about it. But he’s with family right now, because this death [to his friend] has rocked his world,” said Cayode, who was joined on the College Park trip by her brother and Brantley’s uncle, Kerny Cayode. “It was a horrible death, and it’s heartbreaking because this [the commitment] was such a big moment for Jaylen, and then this [the accident] happened. He was very excited about Maryland, but he doesn’t want to take away from the person he lost and their family.”
