I've been covering the Badgers for various media outlets since 2004. I'm a graduate of the University of Wisconsin-Madison's Journalism School and a native of Chicago.

I've been very fortunate to cover three bowl games (including the 2011 Rose Bowl), three NCAA Tournaments and four Big Ten Tournaments.

I currently live in Chicago and work as the lead sports content producer for CBSChicago.com. In other words, I'm the sports editor of the site, which also serves as the web site of 670 The Score.

I hope you enjoy the work we do at Bucky's 5th Quarter. My goal is to not only give you the latest news, but also provide the kind of in-depth analysis you can't always get from other sources.

Is Wisconsin Overrated In NCAA Football 13?

Report: Bostad leaving Pitt already to join Bears

2

My radio station, 670 The Score in Chicago, is reporting that former UW offensive line coach Bob Bostad is leaving Pitt already to become the offensive line coach for the Chicago Bears. Considering Bostad left Wisconsin just a few weeks ago to join Paul Chryst at Pitt, I think this qualifies as a shocker. UPDATE: A Bears source assured me that this move is not a done deal, but a Badgers source says not to rule it out despite Bostad's loyalty to Chryst. My updated story.

The Wisconsin State Journal's Adam Mertz has confirmed that Jump Around will be played at the Rose Bowl in between the third and fourth quarters. To accommodate Oregon fans, they will also play "Shout" in between the third and fourth quarters. Shout is an Oregon fan favorite, but little do they know that it's played at most Wisconsin home games as well.
