Found September 18, 2013 on Fox Sports Wisconsin:
Apparently, Wisconsin football fans wanted to discuss last week's game against Arizona State a little more this week. I wonder why? In this week's mailbag, we touch on the talent of running back Melvin Gordon and the Badgers' problems in the secondary.

This is our fourth edition of the mailbag, which we'll post every Wednesday throughout the season, excluding bye weeks.

Wisconsin RB Melvin Gordon maximizing every opportunity

MADISON, Wis. -- In most college football programs, talk would center on the performance of a running back on track to end his career with the best yards-per-carry average of any player with at least 300 carries in team history.

Big Ten season begins for Wisconsin this Saturday, but this week's predictions are similar to what we saw in the Badgers' first two weeks - namely everyone picking UW to win.
