Badger Bits: Your motivation for the week

Mary Langenfeld-US PRESSWIRE

Start your week off on an up beat and watch a sick 14-year-old get his bedroom made over by Wisconsin football players and Make-A-Wish.

I really like heartwarming stories, and I like them all the more when it's 1 a.m. and there is a hangover going through dramatic death throes in my frontal lobe and I just found out I'm going to be an uncle you guys it's pretty great.

Stories like Darien's below are a yearly rite of college football at this point, but darn it if they don't cut to the core of me, especially when they are orchestrated by a team I like.

Utah State's Chuckie Keeton was a first-team WAC honoreein 2012, when he set single-season school records for touchdown passes (27), passing yards (3,373), completions (275) and completion percentage (67.6 percent). Andersen also hired San Diego State's Andy Ludwig as the Badgers' offensive coordinator. Ludwig helped shape former Aztecs quarterback Ryan Lindley into one of the most productive passers in FBS history before he was drafted by the NFL's Arizona Cardinals last April.
