Wisconsin football starts 2018 winter conditioning

The grind begins for the Badgers.

The Wisconsin Badgers’ 2018 season doesn't start with the first game vs. Western Kentucky on Aug. 31, or the start of fall camp in late summer, or during spring practices just a couple of months away.

It started Monday, as Wisconsin began its winter conditioning program. UW released some pictures and a video on Tuesday via Twitter, as players were sporting Under Armour shirts with the slogan, “Nobody Cares, Work Harder.”

The video starts with highlights of Wisconsin’s 34–24 Orange Bowl win, then juxtaposes those warm, fuzzy feelings with an alarm sounding off in the dark and Doak Walker Award finalist Jonathan Taylor getting ready. He looks at the camera and states the Badgers’ apparent catch phrase before heading out of the room, which leads to the montage of players running sprints and lifting weights.

Check out the Instagram pictures below of players like Taylor, defensive linemen Isaiahh Loudermilk and Keldric Preston, running back Chris James, inside linebacker T.J. Edwards, wide receiver Danny Davis and early enrollee Reggie Pearson.

Also one of the five 2018 early enrollees to start their collegiate career this semester, true freshman cornerback Donte Burton tweeted a video early Wednesday morning of his new locker.
