It’s Friday, friends. We made it.
I couldn’t get to a Bits post on Thursday, so let’s play a little catch up with today’s links...
BTN stops by Wisconsin fall camp
BTN’s conference camp tour hit Madison on Wednesday, and there’s a ton of clips and tweets to catch up on. I’ll drop in the best below; check out BTN’s YouTube page and the Twitter pages of Dave Revsine and Gerry DiNardo for more.
Interested to watch this guy today - Kayden Lyles moved from OL to DL - as of now a starter at DE. Badgers have some questions up front on D - biggest concern on team. pic.twitter.com/CgecLOcuQx— Dave Revsine (@BTNDaveRevsine) August 15, 2018
OLB a bit more of a concern once you get past Andrew Van Ginkel. Zack Baun looks like the other starter for now - making a play in coverage here pic.twitter.com/uMLmunPnTt— Dave Revsine (@BTNDaveRevsine) August 15, 2018

BTN Bus Tour Stop 8 @BadgerFootball Today 12th practice in 1/2 pads & about the time the legs get heavy. Everyone talks about the offensive line which they should not enough people talk about the great job their coach Joe Rudolph has been doing for years. Love watching him work— Gerry DiNardo (@gerrydinardo) August 15, 2018
More preseason hype
On Wednesday, Sports Illustrated unveiled its 2018 preseason All-Americans. Jonathan Taylor and Beau Benzschawel received first-team nods, while David Edwards, Michael Deiter, and T.J. Edwards landed on the second team.
Deiter and Edwards were also two of Wisconsin’s four captains for 2018 announced on Thursday, joining Alex Hornibrook and D’Cota Dixon.
For the latest on fall camp, check out Jake’s practice report from Thursday. A lot of good stuff from Joe Rudolph and Jim Leonhard in there.
