Moore cited for OWI

From JSOnline: Wisconsin reserve wide receiver Maurice Moore was arrested early Sunday morning for allegedly operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated, according to Madison Police. Moore was involved in an accident and suffered minor injuries. A UW spokesperson said Sunday afternoon that head coach Bret Bielema would comment on the matter Monday during his regularly scheduled news conference. Moore is a fourth-year junior from Fort Worth, Texas. He has three catches for 45 yards in nine games this season.

The BEST college basketball yearbook out there

+

If anyone is looking for a good college basketball yearbook, I highly endorse the Blue Ribbon Yearbook, which is edited by Chris Dortch. I used it last year for the first time and it was incredibly helpfull when I needed to get information on Wisconsin's opponents. Check out their web site or call their toll-free number at (877-807-4857).

Thank you, badger fans

No votes for Wisconsin in ESPN/USA Today Poll

+

The first ESPN/USA Today Coaches' Poll was released today and Wisconsin received no votes, while five Big Ten teams were ranked. The Big Ten also announced at today's Big Ten Media Day in Chicago that Michigan State was selected by the media to win the Big Ten. Purdue came in second while Ohio State was picked third. The conference only announces the top three teams. But based on the first rankings released, it is safe to say Wisconsin is currently viewed as the seventh best team in the Big Ten. Michigan State received the No. 2 ranking in the ESPN/USA Today poll, while Purdue was No. 7, Michigan No. 15, Ohio State No. 17 and Minnesota No. 18. Illinois was second under "others receiving votes," putting the Illini at No. 27 in the country. Wisconsin joins Penn State, Iowa, Indiana and Northwestern as Big Ten teams which did not receive any votes. One would think the Badgers are better than those four teams, although it could be argued that the Wildcats are up there with UW.

Feeling Blue? Vander commits to Marquette over Wisconsin

+

It's all over Badger fans. The long, sad recruitment of heralded Madison Memorial star Vander Blue came to an end Sunday when he announced he will sign with Marquette during the November early-signing period. Having originally given Wisconsin his verbal commitment, Blue backed out last spring and re-opened his recruiting after a solid junior season that brought him attention from basketball powerhouses all over country. This is a huge blow for the Badgers, who have now lost out on four recruits in just over a month and a half. Two of those recruits -- Diamond Taylor and Jeremy Glover -- were already enrolled at UW and set to join the team this season. Nnanna Egwu, a 6'9 junior forward from St. Ignatius College Prep in Chicago verbally commited to Illinois earlier in the month and Blue chose Marquette Sunday.

UW loses Egwu to Illinois

+

Wisconsin fans probably saw this coming: Nnanna Egwu committed to Illinois Friday, turning down both UW and Purdue. When his stock spiked in the spring, the chances of the 6'9 center from St. Ignatius College Prep in Chicago committing to Wisconsin sank. Egwu is now rated among the Top 10 recruits in the Illinois Class of 2011 -- considered to be one of the best classes ever in one of the best high school basketball states. By late summer it appeared Illinois and Purdue were the favorites and after visiting Champaign last weekend, Egwu chose the Illini. Egwu's former teammate at St. Ignatius, guard Dan Fahey, is a walk-on freshman for the Badgers.
