TANNER MCEVOY RUMORS

Report: Tanner McEvoy, not Joel Stave to start Badgers opener vs. LSU

So much for conventional wisdom and “seeing the way things are going” in practice. Most of the conventional thought from the media covering the Badgers at fall camp was that Joel Stave had pulled ahead of fellow junior Tanner McEvoy and would be the guy coming out of the tunnel leading the team against LSU. However, Jeff Potrykus of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel is reporting...
