Hey all, apologize again for the abbreviated Badger Bits again- this whole college thing would be a lot more fun without having to learn things! One final left after today, so I promise everything will be back to normal soon! 

Sophomore center Peter Konz is ready to go for the Rose Bowl after suffering a sprained ankle on October 23rd against Iowa. This will be Konz's first bowl game: he also missed last year's Champs Sports Bowl because of blood clots in his lungs. Konz credits some of his perseverance to his teammates on the offensive line.

"It’s more of a feeling, ‘I want to do as well as my teammates, let’s do this together,’" Konz said of the competitive nature of the offensive line. "That’s the way I always look at it even though we’re always trying to one-up each other. I still feel more like, ‘If he can do it, I can do it, just because we’re a team.’"

More Badger Bits after the jump!

Wisconsin athletic director Barry Alvarez is not overly concerned with the Big Ten's pending division names, according to Mike Lucas.

Wisconsin tight end Brian Wozniak sat down for an interview with his hometown newspaper, and discussed everything from the Badgers' season so far to what it was like during his first collegiate play.

Adam Mertz says that according to one author, karma finally swung the Badgers' way after 68 years.

Tom Mulhern says that John Clay has looked really good in practice so far, and seems very motivated to take on the No. 1 rushing defense in the country.

Tom Oates says that Wisconsin's assistant coaches deserve a lot of the credit for the team's success this year.

Jeffy Potrykus says that senior wide receiver David Gilreath finally put it all together during the 2010 season.

15 days until the Rose Bowl!
