Badger Bits: Lewis brings extra element to backfield

Lets start the week on the right foot, shall we?

To be honest, nobody would really blame you for forgetting about Wisconsin running back Jeff Lewis. It isn't hard; what with all the attention lavished on the dynamic duo of James White and Montee Ball. But underestimate Lewis at your own cost. Jeff Potrykus of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel writes that Lewis is working his hardest this spring, despite the heavyweights above him on the depth chart. 

Lewis is considered the fastest of Wisconsin's running backs, and according to Potrykus the coaching staff has clocked Lewis' 40-yard dash at 4.39 seconds. Lewis' explosiveness could make him an excellent complement to White and Ball, if beats out Zach Brown for the third spot on the depth chart. While we're talking about Brown, though, it's probably wise not to count him out of a job either. According to Tom Mulhern of Madison.com, Brown has put on some extra weight this spring, and has potential to be Wisconsin's primary power back in 2011. 

More Badger Bits after the jump!

Elliot Hughes of the Badger Herald writes that freshman Kenzel Doe has potential to contribute right away to the team as their primary punt and kick returner.

Mulhern has a cool piece on the Trotter twins. Marcus and Mike Trotter play linebacker and safety, respectively, and are both looking for larger roles as they move up the depth chart.

Mike Lucas of UWBadgers.com has a piece about the development of quarterback Joel Stave.

Finally, it looks like UW wants to add club seating to the Kohl Center for the 2011-2012 basketball and hockey seasons.
