Morning everyone! Don't forget that Badger Bits are part of a well-balanced breakfast. Let's get to work.
You know how the college football off-season is filled with "Way-too-early Top 25" polls? There's no such thing in my mind. It's never too early for college football. So when I saw a post-spring practice Top 25 poll on ESPN, I was pretty excited.
But Schlabach's poll got me thinking a little bit. Do we know enough about the 2011 Badgers to put them in the Top 15? Here's what Schlabach said about the Badgers:
"The Badgers lost as much star power as any team in the country, with four All-Americans departing, including defensive end J.J. Watt and offensive tackle Gabe Carimi. But with tailbacks Montee Ball and James White coming back, Wisconsin again figures to have one of the country's best running games."
What do you think? Do the Badgers have enough promise for 2011 to be ranked in the Top 15? Vote in the poll below!
Mike Lucas of UWBadgers.com takes a look at what it's like to be an undrafted free agent.
Adam Rittenberg of ESPN.com takes a look at Wisconsin's 2011 football schedule.
Rittenberg also takes a look at the thee Big Ten games to watch in 2011. The Badgers' rematch with Ohio State is certainly worth the mention!
While you're at it, take a look at Rittenberg's Big Ten Mailblog. Need to stay up on the competition!
Jeff Potrykus takes a look at the Badgers' newest commitment. In case you haven't heard, it's a pretty big deal.
Finally, take a look at Black Heart Gold Pants' feature on colleges that out-perform their recruiting rankings! It's pretty interesting.
Have a great day!
