The Wisconsin Badgers began the tail end of their spring practice sessions on Tuesday, working in their 10th practice leading up to the spring game on April 23.
The quarterback competition between Bart Houston and Alex Hornibrook continued with an up-and-down day for the offense as a whole, according to BadgerNation.com ($), but the biggest news may have come from under center -- and who might play it.
Dan Voltz, who is recovering from right knee surgery and is expected back for summer workouts, may switch from center to guard based off the continued improvement of Michael Deiter, who last year started six games at center in place of Voltz while starting at left guard for seven.

#Badgers OL coach Rudolph on Voltz volunteering move to G so Deiter can stay at C. "Dan is fricken off the charts."— Jeff Potrykus (@jaypo1961) April 12, 2016
Rudolph said Voltz even listed a few reasons why leaving Deiter at C after he comes back might be a good idea. Time will tell. #Badgers— John Veldhuis (@JohnVeldhuis) April 12, 2016
Senior RB Dare Ogunbowale had a good day catching the ball out of the backfield. Was able to find space and rack up big yardage. #Badgers— Evan Flood (@Evan_Flood) April 12, 2016
