MADISON, Wis. When the bar continues to rise higher each season, at what point does it finally fall?
That is the question Wisconsin's offense will have to contend with as it prepares for the 2012 college football season. Even if the Badgers sparkle consistently with crisp scoring drives, they may not live up to the lofty standards they've set in recent seasons.
