Wisconsin Quarterback Joel Stave’s college career has been very up and down. After getting shafted out of a start in the 2013 Rose Bowl because Barry Alvarez decided that Curt “Who Needs ACLs?” Phillips was a better option than Stave, who at the time had just gotten done recovering from a broken collarbone, Stave was named the starter for the 2013 season. Stave performed admirably in 2013, setting the UW sophomore record with 2,494 passing yards and throwing 22 touchdown passes, second most in UW history behind his mentor Russell Wilson.
But ever since losing to the Gamecocks of South Carolina in the 2014 Capital One Bowl, Stave has had to split time with JuCo transfer Tanner McEvoy, who also was/is the Badgers’ starting safety. Pair all this with the fact that Stave is now playing under his fourth head coach, and you have yourself a pretty tumultuous time in Madison.
With McEvoy officially moving to wide receiver/safety this season, though, the quarterback position is all Stave’s in this, his final season. It’s his time to shine, and he knows it. While other quarterbacks are using hype videos to show off what they can do, Stave decided to do something much, much more impressive: flex his pipes singing backup in a music video with his musician brother. Check it out.
S’unreal. That might be the best harmonization I’ve ever heard. His voice is like a river in spring, powerful yet beautiful. And don’t even get me started on that bongo playing. What rhythm. What flow. There is no doubt in my mind that he is going to lead the Badgers to victory over the Alabama Crimson Tide this weekend in Dallas (you know I’ll be there). Hell, after watching this video, you’ve got to believe he’s winning the Heisman this year. You’ve just got to. I’m calling it right now. #StaveForHeisman.
