Wisconsin football and basketball are always the main topics in Bucky’s Breakfast, Land of 10’s daily Badgers notebook — but we cover news, notes and analysis across Badgers sports. Join us each morning to get caught up on everything you missed in the world of Wisconsin football, recruiting, basketball and more.

Jazz Peavy still important for Wisconsin

Though his production hasn’t been what he or fans expected, senior wide receiver Jazz Peavy remains a vital piece of the Badgers offense on and off the field.

Impact of Donte Burton’s commitment

In his latest recruiting notebook, Jesse Temple tackles what the commitment of 3-star cornerback Donte Burton means for Wisconsin and also why 5-star offensive lineman Jackson Carman is no longer looking at the Badgers.

Joel Stave finds a team

Former Wisconsin quarterback Joel Stave has been a free agent since being cut by the Kansas City Chiefs before the NFL season began, but that’s no longer the case. The Badgers’ all-time wins leader was signed to the Washington Redskins practice squad on Tuesday.

Nebraska has rebounded since NIU loss

Everyone was stunned when Nebraska lost at home to Northern Illinois last month, but the Huskers have rebounded nicely since with a pair of wins against Rutgers and Illinois. As Jim Polzin of the Wisconsin State Journal writes, those victories have boosted Nebraska’s confidence as the Badgers come to town on Saturday.

Film shows increase in defense’s aggressiveness

Madison.com’s Jason Galloway looked at the film from the Badgers’ 33-24 win over Northwestern and noticed a significant uptick in aggressiveness from defensive coordinator Jim Leonhard.

Wisconsin flying under the radar

As the Badgers enter the month of October, they are ranked in the top 10 in the country and appear on track to play in the Big Ten title game for the third time in four years. But as has become the case on an almost yearly basis, Wisconsin is flying under the radar with little to no national attention, according to Dan Murphy of ESPN.com.

Natrell Jamerson a playmaker

Working at his third different position since coming to Wisconsin, senior Natrell Jamerson appears to be developing into the playmaker the Badgers envisioned when he moved to safety in the offseason, writes Jeff Potrykus of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

Demand for Wisconsin hockey tickets grows

The start of the Tony Granato era has resulted in higher season-ticket sales for men’s hockey the last two years, according to Todd Milewski of Madison.com.
