2

This link is unfortunately paywalled, but you can get the gist of the story from the headline. Together with fellow South Oak Cliff (Dallas) cornerback Takadrae Williams, Ausborne's commitment gives the Badgers new inroads into Texas that have generated even more momentum on the recruiting front. The duo committed to UW on Friday.

Previewing Wisconsin with Lake The Posts

Lake The Posts is a fine Northwestern blog, and Jay Sharman there asked me to breakdown this season's upcoming matchup in Evanston and what else might be in store for Wisconsin in 2014. This also officially ushers in Q&A season -- the season's almost here, friends.

Sports on Earth: Melvin Gordon is college football's most explosive runner

"It's not because he's the prototypical Big Ten power back and nobody's strong enough to tackle him; it's because nobody's able to react quickly enough to bring him down."

SoE's Matt Brown knows what's up. His profile of Gordon is fantastic, and auto-read material for all Badgers fans. Hold on, y'all. The season's almost here.

Judge to allow evidence in Dominic Cizauskas sexual assault case

9

We hope to have a more in-depth look at this case later in the week, but this news has been around for a few days now. Last week, a Dane County judge denied a motion to suppress evidence from a sexual assault exam in the case against Dominic Cizauskas, a linebacker from Mukwonago who committed to UW but never signed his Letter of Intent. Cizauskas allegedly sexually assaulted a female student in a UW dorm room in December and has been charged with third-degree sexual assault. His legal team argued the sexual assault exam should be thrown out because the victim reportedly had sexual contact with her boyfriend before the alleged assault. A hearing has been scheduled for June 9 and a trial is scheduled to start June 16.

UWBadgers.com profiles new Director of Football Operations Jason Thomas

+

"I’ve adopted a similar philosophy to Coach Andersen. If you take care of yourself academically and socially, athletics will always take care of itself. The type of man and woman you are in the classroom is going to have a direct reflection on the type you are on the field of play."

That's just one quote from Jason Thomas in Mike Lucas' profile of Wisconsin's latest Director of Football operations. The full story is worth a read, as Lucas traces Thomas' path from talented high school wide receiver who was sidetracked by injuries to Utah State's assistant athletics director. Now, he joins the Badgers for Gary Andersen's second year in Madison.

None of that is surprising, though the "WHY NOT BART HOUSTON?!" crowd might be a bit crushed.

Chris Borland on joining San Francisco 49ers

+

"We’ve gotten a little bit of exposure to those guys and that defense when we had a switch to 3-4. We watched some of their film. We actually implemented a few things the Niners do on defense. So, they’re two of the best in the league and I’m looking forward to learning from them."

49ers.com That's Borland talking about pairing up with linebackers Patrick Willis and NaVorro Bowman. The full Q&A (plus audio of Borland's conference call) is well worth your time. Among other things, he admits he had no idea the 49ers were interested in him, even though he spoke to head coach Jim Harbaugh at the NFL Combine.

Well this is a bummer, if true. Borland's shoulder issues were well known while he was in Madison, though they seemed nothing more lingering than here and there. Hopefully Borland settles into a nice situation in the NFL.
