Michigan’s Moe Wagner and Zak Irvin combined to score 39 points as the Wolverines downed a lackluster Wisconsin team 64-58 in Ann Arbor.
Wintertime in Wisconsin is a harsh season for all, including drunken criminals whose schemes may end up foiled by the unforgiving climate. Nathan Tyler Meleski knows the pain.
Reader Joe sent this along with the note (warning?), “Yes, this is how we sound.” If you are also of the mind that thick Wisconsin twang is charming, well, strap in for the good shit.
The Milwaukee Bucks have—obvious exception aside—been a depressing team to watch this season. The defense that made them one of the surprise teams of 2014-15 has completely disappeared. The gamble on Michael Carter-Williams as the point guard of the future has been a disaster, as Carter-Williams has lost his grip on…
In the very early hours of the morning, Kentucky’s Andrew Harrison apologized for muttering “Fuck that nigga” when Wisconsin’s Frank Kaminsky came up at a post-game presser last night.
Wisconsin is a really cool state, and I swear I'm not being a condescending Northeast elitist about it. This isn't like when some loathsome New York City resident praises Chicago as a "nice little town." I don't mean "Wisconsin is really cool, for an upper Midwestern state that Prince isn't from," or "Wisconsin is…
A 13-year-old driving a car full of kids around Wisconsin is strange and cheeky, but a drunk 13-year-old?
Cashews and bottom-shelf booze. This tyke knows what his guests want.
Notre Dame Academy (Wis.) played Manitowoc (Wis.) in hockey Monday. It was not even close.
In this reimagining of the classic film The Wizard of Oz, Jordy Nelson replaces the unconscious-and-dreaming Dorothy and the tornado-spun house that scrambles her brains is replaced by a tree. Oh, and the magical world of Oz is now autumnal Wisconsin.
The Midwesternest piece of Memorial Day Weekend news has broken, and it is that the self-proclaimed World's Largest Brat Fest has achieved its destiny by grilling and bunning perhaps the world's largest brat.
Pat Forde and ESPN are reporting that serious talks are afoot to fold Maryland and Rutgers into the Big Ten. Not only would that create a 14-member conference that'd surely be the biggest Ten in the world, it would reopen the scabby wound of major conference realignment. The ACC, the Terps' current home, would be…
Prompted by a discussion between Gawker's own Mobutu Sese Seko and Sports Illustrated college football writer Holly Anderson, we created this mp3 celebrating the best and only relevant moment of Night Ranger's musical career. We think it's worth using to highlight plays, so here's the best runs from this past weekend…
Tony Romo, who is 32 and in his prime as an NFL quarterback, comes from an altogether different era. That's all I can draw from the current issue of D Magazine, in which Peter Simek drills down into a single high-school game to explain Romo's ascent from small-town jock-of-all-trades to a guy with the second-highest…
An insidious trend is developing in Wisconsin. First it was Montee Ball and his $429 ticket for trespassing at a block party. Now comes news that the varsity softball coach at Oconta Falls high school, Dawn Larsen (not pictured), was given a $177 citation after a parent complained about her potty mouth.
Over the summer, we learned that former NBA player Latrell Sprewell was officially Wisconsin's worst tax scofflaw, thanks to the state's public list of the top 100 delinquent taxpayers. Back then, Sprewell owed more than $3.5 million—but as of this week, he's no longer on the list. Anthony Mason, who last played with…
A few years back, the New York Times had a piece about Wisconsin's drinking problem. "When it comes to drinking, it seems, no state keeps pace with Wisconsin," they wrote. It was bad, they said, in large part because Wisconsin bars and restaurants allow minors to drink in the presence of parents or guardians.
Poor Jay Cutler. Jay Cutler did not ask for any of this. He did not ask to be born with the most hangdoggery hangdog face of all time. He did not ask for you to question his toughness. And he did not ask to become the punchline in the Wisconsin Senate Race. But that is what has happened.
