Found October 08, 2012 on Madtown Badgers:
Wisconsin football has dealt with a lot in the past 10 months. First it was six new coaches in the off season, then an in season coaching change, but it's been the rash of injuries that have really led to what can only be described as an under whelming 4-2 start for the Badgers. As luck would have it it seems as if the Badgers have gotten healthier at just the right time. Entering their 3rd week of Big Ten play signs are pointing to a healthy football team being a much better football team going forward. "We were a little bit healthier on Saturday than we've been over the last three to four weeks," head coach Bret Bielema said during his Monday Press Conference. "I think that made a huge difference, especially on the defensive side of the ball, getting Brendan Kelly and pat Muldoon back on defense was huge, especially in the fourth quarter when we needed pressure on the quarterback."  The healing of Brendan Kelly's hamstring an...

Badgers' Abbrederis a study in perseverance

MADISON, Wis. Jared Abbrederis didn't have the first inkling about proper route-running technique, receiver stance or blocking schemes when he joined Wisconsin's football program three years ago. Oddly enough, the top wide receiver in the Big Ten this season was more concerned with throwing passes for a scout team that never saw the field on game day. He had been brought...
