Found March 09, 2013 on Madtown Badgers:
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.

Sure, the running game is going to be solid, but in the offense that will be installed it's just not enough to win you football games.  Having said that, the coaching staff and the players are well aware of just how important their role will be this season.  "Absolutely.

2013 Badgers Spring Football Preview: Defensive Line

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.
