WATCH: Wisconsin WR Rob Wheelwright With a Pair of Touchdown Catches in Spring Game

Last season the Wisconsin Badgers were as close to a one-man show as a football can get. Yes, Melvin Gordon did need his offensive line to open the holes for him, but once they did he was off to the races--which was good since the passing game didn't do crap.Gordon is gone now and it remains to be seen whether the team has an heir apparent yet. The backfield may need a little more...
