The Wisconsin football quarterback situation took another confusing turn Monday afternoon following practice, with Joel Stave remaining out indefinitely, but not because of an injury as head coach Gary Andersen had said earlier in the day. Monday morning, Andersen said Stave would miss an undisclosed amount of time with a throwing shoulder injury.Stave shut down indefinitely Update: Badgers head coach Gary Andersen told reporters after this story was published that Stave is still out indefinitely, but Read…But Andersen met with reporters in the afternoon to clear up his earlier comments. Andersen, for example, said the word “injury” was not the proper word in the statement earlier that day.“Joel is at practice. He’s at meetings. He’s in all the scenarios, as far as that stuff goes. But as far as game-prepping at this point, that’s where Joel is not with us completely 100 percent, all the time,” Andersen told reporters. “He’s at practice all the time. I don’t want to say he’s not practicing, he’s not with us because that’s not the case. When Joel feels that he can do that, he’ll be right back in that process.”The second-year head coach also made it clear that there is nothing wrong with the throwing shoulder that Stave injured in the Capital One Bowl in January.“There’s been no re-injury for Joel whatsoever,” Andersen said. “Is he injured? No. Is he ready to play right now? No.“It’s not an injury as far as him feeling like he re-hurt it, or he’s struggling or it’s a shoulder scenario. It’s him just working through getting in a position to be able to get into the game and play in a game for us.”After Andersen spoke to the media, Stave also did his best to clear up the confusion about the situation.“Physically, nothing is wrong,” Stave said. “I just haven’t thrown the ball the way I’d like to.”Despite nothing being physically wrong, Andersen said in his teleconference this morning that Stave hasn’t looked his usual self since the middle part of August. It’s hard to tell what the case might be with Stave, but tonight’s updates probably won’t be the last of it. However, Stave said the development has been more recent than that.“I’ve noticed in this past week I haven’t really thrown it the way that I’m used to or the way that’d I’d like to,” Stave said. “That’s when you start to think a little bit. You just got to get back to relax and play the game like you know you can.A report earlier in the afternoon by ESPN claimed that Stave could potentially miss the rest of the season. But when he met with the media this afternoon, Stave said he could play this weekend against Western Illinois if he had to.
After a late season nonconference series, the Wisconsin women’s hockey team heads on the road to face struggling Minnesota State, who still has yet to record a conference win.Badgers’ freshman forward Annie Pankowski, who notched her second career hat trick this past weekend against Clarkson, will face the team that gave her the first one. Pankowski led the Badgers (19-4-3 overall, 14-4-2 WCHA) with four goals in the previous series against the Mavericks in mid-November.The Badgers outscored Minnesota State (2-21-1, 0-17-1) 16-2 in their last series at LaBahn Arena and want to continue to improve down the final stretch.“Now you have eight games left, and the main thing is to maintain what you’ve done the past three weeks and try to make some improvements in some areas where you need to improve and get yourselves ready for the playoffs,” Wisconsin head coach Mark Johnson said.Despite Minnesota State having a difficult season, Wisconsin cannot take them lightly.“I think if we start to worry about the opponent and what they are doing, or worrying about individual play, that could throw us off,” sophomore Sydney McKibbon said. “But if we stick to our game, we will be fine.”The familiarity of playing a conference opponent again helps the Badgers come out confident and strong.“We obviously know them better because we played them before and we know their style,” freshman Maddie Rolfes said. “We know what to expect, so we can go in harder and not timid because we know how they play.”A winless conference season thus far could make the Mavericks come out fired-up for the third-ranked Badgers, but Wisconsin will try not to let an upset-minded team throw them off.“Focusing on ourselves and looking at them as if we are playing Minnesota or Clarkson, or anyone else,” McKibbon said. “They are no different and we have to come out ready to play Friday night.”This last stretch of games, no matter who the opponent, will be vital in getting the Badgers prepared for a potential playoff run. For Wisconsin the goal is to win all of the games, but the most important aspect is improving in all areas to make a complete team.The puck drops at 7 p.m. Friday night for the series opener in Mankato, and 3 p.m. Saturday to close out the series.
