Scouting the Badgers

Some early thoughts on Wisconsin following Tuesday head coach press conferences with Marshall’s Mark Snyder and Wisconsin’s Bret Bielema. Yes, P.J. Hill is an elite college football running back, but backups Zach Brown and John Clay are more than capable. Brown is a change-of-pace speed back and Clay, a 6-foot-2, 237-pound freshman, could develop into a fourth quarter hammer. Little was asked of quarterback Allan Evridge in his debut last week, and more of the same can be expected against the Thundering Herd with a trip to No. 21 Fresno State looming. What are your thoughts on No. 11 Wisconsin?
