Wisconsin Badgers Spring Football 2015 Preview: Defensive Line

We’ve come to the end of our spring previews already, but we’ve saved perhaps the most up in the air position for last too. If there was one area that the Wisconsin Badgers could’ve improved on in 2014 it was the production of the defensive line. Part of it had to do with injuries to both Konrad Zagzebski and Warren Herring, the other part had to do with a lot of youth at the...

Fast-developing Obasih ready to add toughness to Badgers' d-line

MADISON, Wis. -- To say Chikwe Obasih came from out of nowhere on Wisconsin's defensive line would not be an entirely fair statement. The guy was a force at Brookfield Central High, a first-team all-state pick and one of the top recruits in Wisconsin.

Badgers Spring Game 2014: Impressions not pretty ☆

Wisconsin’s annual spring game wasn’t much of a game—especially given the injuries and format because of said injuries. In the end, it was Cardinal 6, White 0.
