Wisconsin Badgers news, 6/23: UW's 2014 offense, Badgers in the NFL

Andrew Weber-USA TODAY Sports

In year two of the Gary Andersen era, how much will the Badgers' offense differ from 2013?

Football

It's easy to get monotonous if you're Wisconsin -- running the ball has effectively worked for the past two decades. Head coach Gary Andersen, however, wants to instill a little bit of spice into the offense.

Eleven Warriors previews Andersen's second season in Madison and the Badgers' road to Indianapolis from the West Division.

Fox Sports Wisconsin's Most Important Badgers list comes to an end: running back Melvin Gordon, arguably the team's most impressive, explosive and dependable player, took the cake as UW's most important player for the 2014-15 season.

Badgers in the NFL: Selected in the fifth round by the Packers, the expectations for Jared Abbrederis were not set ridiculously high, besides for the fact he was the first UW alum to be selected by the Green Bay since Bill Ferrario in 2001. Nonetheless, the wide receiver improved his stock during OTAs. Even though some see him as undersized, there's little doubt Chris Borland can be productive at the next level, and the San Francisco 49ers coaching staff has felt similarly about the former UW linebacker. J.J. Watt's Foundation event over the weekend was a success. Plus, you can buy tickets to tailgate with the big fella down in Houston when Wisconsin faces LSU.

Russell Wilson and Chris Maragos, now with Allen in Philadelphia, received their Super Bowl rings on Friday.

Jake rode solo for this week's episode of Kielbasa Kings, but still has some great discussion about Badger recruiting and the continued success of the Milwaukee Brewers.

The UW women's program was tabbed as one of the best top-20 programs in the country, finishing 16th in the Capital One Cup voting.

The Badgers' Board of Regents renewed the contracts of many coaches recently, most notably softball head coach Yvette Healy through 2017 and track and field director Mick Bryne through 2017.

Ron Dayne's daughter, Jada, won a state tournament title with Waunakee over the weekend.
