Melvin Gordon makes CBS Sports' All-American team

+

CBS Sports released its preseason All-American list Wednesday, including Wisconsin's Melvin Gordon as one of two running backs alongside Georgia's Todd Gurley. Only a first team was released, so Gordon is the only Badgers representative. The other Big Ten players are Iowa offensive tackle Brandon Scherff, Ohio State defensive tackle Michael Bennett and Iowa defensive tackle Carl Davis.

Oh crap, your son has to block J.J. Watt

This J.J. Watt clip from HBO's "Hard Knocks" is awesome. The Atlanta Falcons are featured this season, and their scrimmage against the Houston Texans brought them face-to-face with J.J. Watt. The clip begins with Bruce Matthews, a Hall of Famer who's son is Falcons left tackle Jake Matthews, talking to Atlanta offensive line coach Mike Tice (and father of Badger fan favorite Nate Tice). The ensuing voiceover is awesome; by highlighting the football dads first, the transition to Watt is essentially, "Oh, man. Your son's screwed!" And indeed, Watt looks pretty damn unblockable in the clip.

Braxton Miller injury makes UW Big Ten favorite

28

So Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller is out for the season, according to ESPN's Brett McMurphy. Miller reinjured his throwing shoulder in practice Monday, and the effects on the college football world are felt everywhere from the Big Ten picture to the Heisman Trophy race. Wisconsin stands to benefit from both (Melvin Gordon should get even more attention among the conference's top players), and according to PredictionMachine.com (via the USA TODAY link above) the Badgers are now favored in every game (including the opener vs. LSU and in a Big Ten Championship matchup vs. Michigan State). PredictionMachine runs 50,000 simulations of the college football season, and in this instance, the Badgers replace Ohio State in the College Football Playoff.

Hawaii AD: Warriors football in danger of "going away"

1

This is a stunner: Hawaii athletic director Ben Jay told the university's Board of Regetns on Monday that the football program could be going away. The university has operated under a budget deficit during 11 of the past 13 years, and is on the way to making that 12 of 14 this year. On the football field, the Warriors haven't had a winning season since 2010 and have also won just four games over the past two seasons. There's also a Wisconsin connection here: the Badgers are scheduled to host Hawaii in 2015, travel there in 2021 and play another in Madison in 2022.

Badgers won't name QB before opener

Gary Andersen indicated Monday that the Badgers won't name a starting quarterback before the season-opener against LSU on Aug. 30.
