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.
