More from Wisconsin football photo day, basketball evaluation period

A collection of Thursday links.

On Tuesday, the Wisconsin Badgers football program started what appeared to be day one of its photo shoot extravaganza for the 2017 season.

Defensive backs D’Cota Dixon, Derrick Tindal, and Nick Nelson, along with the inside linebackers and running backs, had some fun in front of the lights of a camera and white backdrop.

On Wednesday, more Badgers had their chance to dazzle. UW’s defensive linemen and wide receivers appeared to have the most fun, at least from seeing these pictures.

As noted yesterday, find more photos and videos on Wisconsin football’s Instagram page—be sure to check out the Instagram story.

Lots of love from the wide receivers here. Yesterday, a picture of A.J. Taylor in his new number surfaced. Here, you see Jazz Peavy (No. 11), Quintez Cephus (No. 87), and George Rushing (17) enjoying themselves.

One former Badger (current Green Bay Packers outside linebacker Vince Biegel) asked where his former position group mates where. Well, here are two possible starters in redshirt seniors Garret Dooley and Leon Jacobs.

Here’s former walk-on, preseason All-American, and Big Ten media day representative Troy Fumagalli doing Troy Fumagalli things.

Like Taylor’s switch to No. 4, redshirt senior safety Joe Ferguson changed jersey numbers from No. 36 to No. 8.
