Badger Bits: Oglesby faces tough road back

I don't know about you, but I have a long weekend of baseball in front of me, and I couldn't be happier. Let's get this party started! 

Wisconsin offensive lineman Josh Oglesby had a rough year, to put it lightly. He only started two games for the Badgers last year during their Rose Bowl campaign, suffered a knee injury, lost his starting job to Ricky Wagner, and eventually tore his left ACL during practice. And according to Jim Polzin of Madison.com, he may be in for a tough battle to get his starting spot back.

Oglesby's injury has kept him out of contact drills this spring, which provides an opening for sophomore Casey Dehn or freshman Rob Havensteito make their case for the job. Ricky Wagner, who replaced Oglesby on the right side in 2010, will shift to the left tackle slot and replace Gabe Carimi. Oglesby will need to make a strong statement in fall camp if he wants to capitalize on all the potential he brought with him to Madison several years ago. 

Mike Lucas of UWBadgers.com has an interview with Jared Abbrederis, who spoke about what it's like to learn on the job.

Max Henson of the Badger Herald writes about Pat Muldoon, who is the frontrunner to take over for J.J. Watt at defensive end this fall.

Speaking of Watt, DraftTek.com projects him to go 17th overall to the New England Patriots. This latest version of their mock draft also has Gabe Carimi going 29th overall to the Chicago Bears.

Andy Baggot of Madison.com has a few suggestions for the Big Ten when they add hockey down the road.

Dennis Punzel has a few names of coaches that have interviewed to be the UW women's basketball head coach. 

Finally, check out Lucas' article in the latest addition of Varsity

Have a great weekend!
