Wow, thatís an impressive list to say the least. I know nothing is guaranteed but I donít think it is meaningless. UW beat out a long list of successful competitors for the most valued position. Nice win for the Badgers. I hope the kid does great.

And Kansas.

I might be off a guy or two but I believe I saw a graphic during the Pinstripe Bowl that said Miami had 36 4 or 5-star recruits on their roster vs 6 for the Badgers, roughly the inverse of the gameís final score. FWIW

...which is probably why "The U's" coach is retiring, before they could fire him...furthermore, the Badgers have a grand total of ZERO 5-star recruits. I didn't see the graphic you speak of (I didn't see the full game either), but if your recollection is accurate, giving the Badgers six, 4-star recruits appears to be a very generous acknowledgement by that collection of dimwits who announced the game for ESPN (they were about as bad as bad can get).
Thereís two times of the year for me Ė football season, and waiting for football season.

Perhaps it's what you do with them after you get them rather than what they were ranked before you got them.   I wouldn't mind Mertz taking the position by storm if it helps the Badgers win. But I wonder if Chryst isn't too conservative to go with a newbie when he's returning a senior who's started for three years (yes, I know, too many interceptions) and another who's a junior and has starting experience including the bowl win.  It should be an interesting competition and Mertz will no doubt get his opportunities.

If you try to fail and succeed which have you done?

Mertz will be at spring practices -- that will help. I think Chryst's seat got a little warm this season. He'll go with whomever gives the Badgers the best shot at winning their next game, but UW will need much more help from their WRs this season or the QB will be irrelevant.

I've been checking out the practices for the Under Armour All-American Game at ESPN Wide World of Sports at Disney World the past few days/nights. Some really good high school ball players. Game is tomorrow night at Camping World Stadium in Orlando at 6pm ET on ESPN2 if you can't be like BoBo and be at the game.

Interesting that two of the four QBís on the combined rosters are committed to AZ State.


I donít watch as much Badger football as the WI residents- I just didnít see it w the 3- year starter (despite 2017). Iím of the mindset that great teams pretty much need great QBís (w rare exception). Chryst may feel he has to win now, Iíd rather see UW roll with Mertz if they think heís the real deal. UW may win a bunch of non-conf games and most conference games w their 3-year starter, but what hope does that give the fan base and the potential recruits?

From BadgerofHonor.com:

Buffalo redshirt junior quarterback Tyree Jackson will be exploring graduate transfer options. Wisconsin Football should try and get involved.

Wouldn't that be something?

For Jackson's sake, I hope he stays in school another year. Not sure if UB or another school is best for him.
He has tremendous talent, but much to improve on with accuracy, decision making and ball security.
 

Jackson to Badgers not going to happen. He has decided to make himself available for the NFL draft. Not currently one of the top 10 QB on most if not all draft boards, so only time will tell if this gamble pays off for him.

I'll bet he rises. I didn't know he's 6-7, 245. NFL is sure gonna like his measurables.

LL, if he's back at UB (and many dominoes are yet to fall that would dictate his future), is looking at an offensive rebuild. Top two WRs also on their way out, one to graduation and one to transfer.

That's too bad. the Jackson/Johnson connection has been really dynamic for a couple of years and KJ Osborn really came on this year as well. Hopefully, they've got some kids in the wings that are ready to come in and make an impact.

I could see Johnson as an NFL level WR.

UWEC's Dan Larson has resigned in order to take a position on the North Dakota State staff. DC Matt Ebner is listed as interim head coach on their website.

Look for Rimington Trophy-winning UWW center Nate Trewyn in Saturday's NFLPA Collegiate Bowl all-star game, 4 pm on FS1. I don't know how this game differs from next week's Senior Bowl, might be basically the same deal, a draft showcase for seniors, NAIA through D1.

Will be an interesting hire -- the AD is heavily involved in the program.

UW-W continues to draw high level talent. They are getting a gem in Charlie Hamilton, a 6'2" 190 pound wide receiver from Sacred Heart Griffen.  Hamilton, who had a lot of mid-major interest, turned down a scholarship at Eastern Illinois to attend UW-W.

Much much more ahead on the UW-W recruiting front.

As far as transfers, joining the program and enrolled in the spring semester:

2017 Al Toon Award winner WR Hayden Iverson of Lake Mills. (Transfer from Minnesota Duluth)
6'3" 210 lb QB Matt Nelson (Transfer from Minnesota State)
6'2"  217 lb QB Max Meylor (Transfer from Lindenwood)
6'1"  206 lb WR CJ Davis (Transfer from Carthage)
6'2"  215 lb DE Cashmen Beal (Transfer from Carthage)
