The Wisconsin Badgers most recent depth chart lists Stave, a freshman, along with Danny O'Brien.
Whitnall football fans who remember Joel Stave and his rocket right arm leading the Falcons up and down the field in 2009 and 2010 might be able to relive those moments Saturday. Only this time, Stave will be wearing the red and white of the Wisconsin Badgers. Numerous news outlets reported Monday that Stave, a redshirt freshman, was listed as a co-starter at quarterback, along with Danny O'Brien, on the Badgers' official depth chart five days in advance of Wisconsin's nonconference match-up with Texas-El Paso.

Stave, presumably, would only play in an emergency in order for the Badgers to preserve his redshirt status. Stave was elevated to third on the depth chart thanks to redshirt sophomore Jon Budmayr's right hand injury, according to the blog post. A recent story on …

In a story by the Associated Press that appeared on Sports Illustrated's website this afternoon regarding Wilson's decision, Stave was said to have appeared to be the sharpest of the young quarterbacks during the spring season but implied he was …
