Badger Bits: Carimi, Moffitt named AP All-Americans

Hey everybody! Badger Bits is a little abbreviated today- finals are starting up and I have one this morning, but there's still some great news out today.

I feel like I keep saying this, but congratulations are in order again. Wisconsin offensive linemen Gabe Carimi and John Moffitt were named to the Associated Press' 2010 All-American First Team. Several other Badgers were named to either the second or third All-American teams. Tight end Lance Kendricks and defensive end J.J. Watt were placed on the second team, and running back John Clay was named to the third team.

Rounding out the Badger award news, freshman running back James White was also named to Rivals.com's Freshman All-Americans list. White is just the fourth freshman in school history to go over the 1,000 yard mark during a season. White will have an opportunity to build on that number in the Rose Bowl: he has 1,029 yards on the year.

More Badger Bits after the jump!

Football

According to Jeff Potrykus of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, the Badgers are prepared for life without future NIU head coach Dave Doeren.

Pre-Snap Read has named the Wisconsin vs. Ohio State game to be one of this year's best.

Tom Mulhern writes that injuries couldn't get in the way of safety Aaron Henry's plan for success this year.

Lance Kendricks is going back to work after bruising his lung against Northwestern, according to Potrykus.

Hockey

Chuck Schwartz of Sixty Minutes. No Alibis. No Regrets. gives his take about this weekend's series sweep of the Bemidji State Beavers.

Basketball

Hey, I guess I'm not the only one taking exams! Apparently Josh Gasser is taking his Basketball finals, and is passing with flying colors so far.

A Final Note

17 days until the Rose Bowl!
