Badgers' Kelly hopes to lose injury-prone reputation, get NFL shot

Brendan Kelly is well aware of the label that has been attached to his name -- one with which no football player ever wants to be associated.

The Big Ten Preview: Changes at Wisconsin could lead to headaches for Big Ten offenses

Could new look D be the difference for Wisconsin? That's what Andersen and Co. are hoping for! (Photo Courtesy: USAToday Sports) Aggressive - it's fair to say that's an adjective not often associated with the Big Ten (outside of it's TV dealings) and for good reason.

Kelly an invaluable asset for UW defense

MADISON, Wis. Contrary to popular belief, Brendan Kelly was not a member of Barry Alvarez's team during his first coaching stint.
