With a loss to Ole Miss in the NCAA Tournament 2nd round most Badgers fans attention turned to next season, it's a shame because they are missing one entertaining team doing things that have never been done before in school history.

With Wisconsin transitioning to a 3-4 defense, the Badgers need more middle linebackers. Having played in every game his first two seasons on campus, junior Derek Landisch is playing his way into one of those roles.
Injuries are always a part of spring practice, some players are coming off of surgery and others pick up nagging injuries that shut them down for precautionary reasons. There's that and then there's what is happening to the Badgers offensive line this spring, as the unit is down to just eight healthy bodies to work with.
