USA lost, but at least Meghan Duggan scored


Former Wisconsin Badger Meghan Duggan entered Thursday's gold-medal game vs. Canada goalless, but now she can say she was just saving it for the right time. This snipe put the Americans up 1-0 on Canada in the second period, surely making @NicoleHaase jump with joy. Be sure to watch the remainder of the game on NBC. GIF via Deadspin.

Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian speaking on UW-Madison campus Thursday

This is pretty cool. Ohanian's visiting as part of UW's Distinguished Lecture Series, and he'll discuss advice for entrepreneurial students and his new book, "Without Their Permission," according to The Badger Herald. The talk begins at 7:30 p.m. in Union South’s Varsity Hall. Attendance is free.

Ohio State's Bradley Roby has some interesting comments about Jared Abbrederis

"I had a bad game against Wisconsin. A lot of people want to say [Abbrederis] had 10 catches for 200 yards on me, but that’s not how it went. He probably caught four balls on me, but he was a great player. It was at a time when I was kind of slacking. I didn’t start off the season as serious as I should have. I wasn’t playing the first game so maybe I held back in practice. I think that showed in my first half of the season. At cornerback you always have to be fundamentally sound and if you don’t you’re going to mess up."

Andy Ludwig on the possibility of D.J. Gillins starting as a freshman

"It’s too early to say because I haven’t seen him take a snap. But you’ve seen it happen. He’s smart and he’s got a great skill set so let’s see March seventh. Let’s see how that first snap goes."

NFL Network's Mike Mayock ranks Chris Borland No. 4 linebacker in 2014 draft

The real story here, though: Mayock has Borland above Ohio State's Ryan Shazier. Brace yourselves for the grumbling from Columbus.

Saturday's Wisconsin vs. Iowa game slated for 11 a.m. CT on ESPN2

11 a.m.'s still too early, if you ask me.

Shockingly, J.J. Watt is still good at hockey

J.J. Watt grew up a huge hockey fan in Wisconsin, but he was forced to give up the sport due to the financial cost of equipment, travel and what not. Naturally, though, he still looks pretty sleek on the ice. Our Andy Johnson says he could be the power winger the Badgers need...

Thomas Hammock made a recommendation for Wisconsin's next running backs coach

It'd still be nice to have Thomas Hammock coaching Wisconsin's latest crop of talented rushers, but he's at least given input on a possible ideal replacement. On his way out of Madison, Hammock reportedly recommended Syracuse running backs coach DeAndre Smith, per Tom Mulhern of the Wisconsin State Journal. Hammock played for Smith at Northern Illinois, rushing for 1,095 yards as a junior under Smith in 2001 before a heart condition shortened Hammock's career. Of course, a recommendation is just a recommendation, but Hammock's opinion almost assuredly carries some weight. Smith's experience also speaks for itself -- he's coached nine thousand-yard rushers and three eventual NFL running backs in 15 years.

Seattle Seahawks sign Mike Taylor, really are Madison West

Congrats, Mike Taylor! He's the latest former Wisconsin Badger to become a Seattle Seahawk. A lingering sports hernia forced him to miss both the 2013 combine and UW's pro day. A workout with the Green Bay Packers followed, as did a week-long stint on the Seahawks' practice squad in December. In case you forgot, Taylor was insanely productive at Wisconsin -- he totaled 273 tackles (24 for loss) and five sacks in 2011 and 2012. He joins Russell Wilson, Chris Maragos and O'Brien Schofield as former Badgers in Seattle. Taylor's signing also means Wisconsin is now the most represented school on the Super Bowl champion's roster, exceeding Texas A&M's three alums.
