Downingtown's Bryn Boggs, an Inquirer first-team all-area football selection this past season, has made an oral commitment to Wisconsin. Although Boggs, a 5-foot-11, 185-pound running back/defensive back, rushed for more than 1,000 yards this past season and 2,773 in his career, Badgers coach Barry Alvarez plans to use him as a cornerback, Downingtown coach John Barr said. Boggs, who helped lead the Whippets to the Class AAAA state championship game this past season, also made visits to Clemson, West Virginia and Georgia Tech before deciding Monday on Wisconsin.

Woodbury fullback/linebacker Chris Pressley has made an oral commitment to attend Wisconsin, Woodbury coach Zack Valentine said. "He felt comfortable with his visit and with the academics," Valentine said. Pressley, a bruising 6-foot-1, 258-pound senior who rushed for 1,590 yards last fall and was a second-team all-South Jersey selection, carries a 94 average in class and plans to major in business law, Valentine said. Pressley, who was recruited as a running back, is built like Overbrook High graduate Ron Dayne, who went to Wisconsin and won the Heisman Trophy in 1999 and is now with the New York Giants.

Jerry Butler, a lightning-quick running back from George Washington High, needed only one official recruiting visit to make up his mind. Butler, clocked at 4.19 seconds in the 40-yard dash, has made an oral commitment to play football for the University of Wisconsin. The 5-foot-10, 175-pound senior visited the school over the weekend and committed to Badgers coach Barry Alvarez before returning home Sunday. Football recruits cannot sign binding national letters of intent until Feb. 2. "It just felt like I really fit in there," Butler said.

Penn and Wisconsin had waged the battle of the afternoon in the final race of the day at the 87th annual Intercollegiate Rowing Association Championships on Onondaga Lake yesterday, but as the crews of the varsity eights collapsed in their shells, no one was certain who had won. "It was five strokes (remaining) at the most when we pulled even," said Andrew Goldberg, the coxswain in Penn's boat. "I didn't know who won. I really didn't know. Wisconsin didn't know either. " As it turned out, the Quakers' dramatic charge had given them a victory by two-tenths of a second, as they finished in 5:56.

PASADENA, Calif. - Although Stanford didn't score many style points in the 99th Rose Bowl, the Cardinal could celebrate because it didn't let Wisconsin score any points at all after halftime. Kelsey Young and Stepfan Taylor ran for first-quarter touchdowns, Kevin Hogan passed for 123 yards, and No. 8 Stanford won its first Rose Bowl since 1972, beating the Badgers, 20-14, on Tuesday night. Jordan Williamson kicked two field goals for Stanford, including a 47-yarder that gave the Cardinal a 17-7 second-quarter lead.

BOSTON - Just off the TD Garden court, Scoop Jardine put his head against his father, both rubbing the back of the other's head, smiling and loving the moment. "I really want to cry, but I'm going to hold it in," the Syracuse point guard told his father, Tony. Jardine had just experienced what had to be the biggest victory of his collegiate career, and by a razor's edge avoided it being the last game of his career. The Orange are into the NCAA Elite Eight for the first time in nine years because they forced a tough last shot out of a hot team, getting past Wisconsin, 64-63, in a thriller that saw the losers make 14 three-pointers, including six in a row in the second half.

Massachusetts Gov. Michael S. Dukakis yesterday regained the upper hand in the tight Democratic race with a solid win over Jesse Jackson in the Wisconsin primary. Sens. Albert Gore Jr. of Tennessee and Paul Simon of Illinois trailed far behind, and the results further weakened their candidacies. Gore, after a strong showing in the Super Tuesday voting last month, failed again to win outside the border states, nor did he reach the threshold for continued matching federal funds.

At his weekly meeting with members of the media yesterday, Temple football coach Bobby Wallace pointed out a couple of positives to take from the Owls' 63-16 loss at No. 20 Arizona State on Thursday. It was the first game of the season for both teams. "The score looks horrible, and I'm embarrassed about it, but not about how we played at times," Wallace said. "It's not like they toyed with us or manhandled us. We're playing a top 20 football team at their place, and I think for a quarter and a half, we played well.

This time, the homecourt advantage wasn't enough. Top-ranked Illinois ended Wisconsin's 38-game home winning streak, the nation's longest, beating the Badgers, 75-65, last night by scoring 14 of the game's final 15 points.

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker told regional Republican activists in Philadelphia on Saturday he had shown how to win in a blue industrial state while implementing tough conservative policies such as a limit on collective bargaining for public employees and a right-to-work law. "To win the center, you don't always have to run to the center," said Walker, who is seen as a leading contender for the GOP presidential nomination. "You have to lead. " He was closing speaker at the three-day Northeast Republican Leadership Conference, which drew five declared or likely candidates and several hundred party activists for workshops and inspirational rhetoric.

INDIANAPOLIS - What you hope for in the season's last game is one to match the moment, a memory of two evenly matched teams playing to the stakes and maybe even beyond, every shot important, drama from tip to finish. Last night's NCAA championship game at Lucas Oil Stadium wasn't necessarily perfect (nor, it turned out, was Kentucky), but it was close enough. Duke (35-4) had to come from nine down in the second half against Wisconsin (36-4), but come back it did, overcoming foul trouble to two of its star players and finishing the game with a flourish of offense and defense that carried the Blue Devils home, 68-63.

INDIANAPOLIS - There was not much to analyze in Game 1 of the Final Four at Lucas Oil Stadium. Game 2 will be talked about as long as the NCAA Tournament is played. It had just about everything, including an upset by a "team" in every sense of that word of a team that was just two wins from a magical perfect season. Wisconsin 71, Kentucky 64. I thought the game was over when Kentucky went up, 60-56, and had the ball with 6 minutes left. Wisconsin, showing that its nation's-best offense was ridiculous even against the nation's-best defense (1.6 points per possession in its first 15 possessions, 2.0 in its first eight of the second half)

FULL DISCLOSURE time. I have been a Duke fan ever since Gene "Tinkerbell" Banks announced he was heading to Durham in 1977. That was pre-Laettner, pre-Krzyzewski and pre-titles. I have also come to respect the Duke program, having met Coach K not only as a media member but also as a parent when my son attended Duke's camp. He was cordial, professional and everything I expected him to be. But tonight I will be pulling for the Badgers of Wisconsin. Why? I have always been a Bo Ryan fan, for the same reason I am a Tom Izzo and Mike Krzyzewski fan: Their teams win with class and play the right way. OK, Christian Lattener stomped on a Wildcat's chest one time, but other than that . . . No one really seems to hate the Badgers.

NEW YORK - Brett Brown says he is going to watch the NCAA championship game on Monday night "through business eyes. " The 76ers coach will think about his franchise's future while watching Wisconsin battle Duke for the title. "You are going to think about what might happen with some of the players that are on the court that could be a part of our team. Who knows?" Brown said. "You see it through that lens probably at this stage of my coaching career more than this is a great game . "I don't see it predominantly through that lens much anymore.

THE THREE No. 1 seeds in the Final Four are 106-7. And then there is Michigan State (27-11), a team that can't be evaluated off regular-season performance because its coach, Tom Izzo, has developed a formula to get the Spartans to peak in mid-March. Saturday's second national semifinal at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis will not only be a rematch of last year's semi (won by Kentucky, 74-73), with many of the same participants, it will match the nation's most efficient offense (Wisconsin's)

IT IS THE last week of January, which means coaches are getting frustrated with overworked officials, players are getting frustrated with hyper coaches and we all begin to wonder if there is a greater meaning to the games and all that surround them. It is about this time every year when I wonder who exactly invented the "talk about" question, as in "Coach, can you talk about the offense?" I always thought if you asked an actual question, you would get an answer when the coach talks.
