I'm writing this post-midnight and I'm beattt. The main/only news for this morning is that Joel Stave is officially back (as Wisconsin's No. 2 quarterback). Here's Gary Andersen during his Thursday media availability:

"Joel will be the backup," Andersen said. "If there's an opportunity to get Joel into the right setting, that could be a possibility. Again, like I said, I think he's continued to progress and handled some more team activities in a solid way this week."


"He's definitely progressed. I would agree. He's been throwing the ball like the old Joel out there. I think it's important to remember that he's working, he's doing a great job. He's a good quarterback and we're excited to have him back. ... He's excited. He has a good look in his eye. Like every other position or any other person, he'll never be perfect even though we may all want him to be perfect, but he's excited to have an opportunity."

What do you think -- will we see Stave on Saturday? Should we?
