It's been a fun trip through the roster heading into spring, but as the saying goes - we've saved the best for last. That's because we've saved the quarterbacks for last.
No doubt we don't have to tell you about the disaster that was the quarterback position last year, right? I don't think any of us will forget what happened with Danny O'Brien, Joel Stave, and Curt Phillips all starting multiple games last year.
All of that is in the past though and it's time to turn a new page as Andy Ludwig brings his balanced philosophy together with what Wisconsin has traditional done and what head coach Gary Andersen believes as well. That means more attention will be on the quarterback as they try to incorporate a bit of zone-read in with the down field philosophy they are looking for.
So, how do we sort out a crowded quarterback field? Let's dive right in to the deep end, shall we?

For a variety of reasons, the Wisconsin Badgers may be the least heralded three-time Big Ten Football Champions ever.
Sure, they were not technically division champions last year, but you can’t blame the Badgers for the lack of institutional discipline at Ohio State and Penn State.
No, their brand of play isn’t sexy. They grind it out on the offensive side...

Spring Game: April 20th
Wisconsin football has been on a role as of late. Three straight Big Ten championships, three straight Rose Bowls. However, it's also been three straight Rose Bowl losses. Now Wisconsin enters a new era as former head coach Bret Bielema parlayed his success into the Arkansas coaching job in perhaps the offseason's most...
The defensive line in 2012 showed just how talented and deep of a unit it could be thanks to nagging injuries to just about every one of the starters on the line. Brendan Kelly was supposed to be gone, however he received an extra year of eligibility due to his injury history and will be back with the Badgers in 2013 and that makes this unit even better.
In fact all 4 starters...
Manasseh Garner has a chance to impact the offense, playing a similar H-back role as he did at Wisconsin. David Durham moves to the defensive side of the ball, to defensive end.
The lack of production from the wide receiver position in 2012 may have had many reasons. It could've been the inconsistency of having three different quarterbacks, it could've been the inconsistency of the offensive line early on that led to a lack of time to allow players to get open. However, the most likely case is that there just was a simple lack of ability to get open...
3.3 seconds to play. Tie game. Full length of the court to go. Traevon Jackson don't care.
In a game that seemed to be bound to be a disaster for the Badgers, Traevon Jackson made yet another clutch shot, this one to avoid overtime and help UW escape with a win.
Jackson goes the length of the floor in 3.3 seconds and pulls up from NBA range- nothing but net. The #22 ranked...
As Badger fans we've seen our fair share of crazy games and late game heroics under Bo Ryan, but this season will be remembered for two of the best all-time finishes in school history thanks to Traevon Jackson's heroics in Sunday's 63-60 victory over Penn State in Happy Valley.
While it wasn't all pretty for the Badgers they did get an all around effort on the...
If you've been paying attention to championship week (and you should be) then you've already seen your share of buzzer beaters. However, the Big Ten hasn't seen a ton of them at all this year, but there's one team becoming adept at doing it and that's the Wisconsin Badgers.
We all remember Ben Brust's magic over Michigan and on Sunday it was...
The Badgers were at it again. After winning a tough jump ball with 5 seconds left to play, Wisconsin had a chance to win in regulation against Penn State. It was tied 60-60, and the Badgers would have to go the length of the court to score and avoid overtime.
Traevon Jackson took the inbounds pass and dribbled up the floor — just before time expired, Jackson pulled up for about...
Wisconsin Badgers' Traevon Jackson hit another game-winning, buzzer-beating shot to stun Penn State.
