Wisconsin Badgers news, 9/4: Tanner McEvoy 'disgusted' by play vs. LSU, working on footwork

Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

Bad news struck the Wisconsin Badgers again on Wednesday, as a pair of starters underwent surgery and will miss at least the next month. Defensive tackle Warren Herring will be out 4-6 weeks following right knee surgery, while fullback Derek Watt had right foot surgery and is out until November.

Good news was found in that link, nonetheless: Konrad Zagzebski is expected to play Saturday.

Tanner McEvoy is "disgusted" by his play vs. LSU and is focusing heavily on footwork this week. One thing that's interesting: offensive coordinator Andy Ludwig says the quarterback reps in practice won't change, even with sophomore Bart Houston being thrust into the backup spot.

"My thought right now is to get the No. 1 quarterback to be the best that he can be so I think he needs the No. 1 workload," Ludwig said of the reps distribution. "So that's not going to change."

I enjoyed this column from Land-Grant Holy Land's Matt Brown on why college football polls still matter.

Breaking Madden is back!'s YouTube page is always pretty solid.

Here's Michael Caputo talking about his great game Saturday:

Plenty of fans turned out in Houston this weekend to catch up with J.J. Watt.
