To say the least, when Melvin Gordon ran outside against Nebraska, good things happened (as it usuall does).

Gordon: Mentally, physically stronger for Badgers

MADISON, Wis. (AP) Melvin Gordon weighed going pro before returning to Wisconsin for his junior season as a quicker, faster and stronger running back. Perhaps just as important for Gordon's high NFL hopes is the ability he has shown this year to bounce back from adversity and shine in an ever-brighter spotlight.
