Wisconsin Badgers head coach Paul Chryst took to the mic for his weekly press conference on Monday morning. Here’s what he had to say!

  • He had some thoughts on the Illinois quarterback situation. They’ve had a couple of different players in there and he was asked how they are different.

“You only know what you see on film. Obviously, two different guys and, I know when we are in those situations, you still have to run your offense.”

  • Thoughts on Bryson Williams coming back from injury.

“One, it has been really good to have him back.” “It has been good the last two weeks to get him going again.”

  • On the last series against MSU, and whether cornerbacks Faion Hicks and Rachad Wildgoose put themselves back in the game to seal the shutout.

“In situations like that, I don’t know exactly what happened, the situation is we do play a lot of guys. At the time I didn’t know, but they aren’t liars probably.” (He finished this quote with a bit of a smirk.)

  • What does Chryst think about the progress of Noah Burks?

“I think what Noah has done a really good job of...is being really consistent.” “If he’s supposed to play a certain way, he’s going to do it.”

  • With the graduation of Alec Ingold how have the fullbacks, Mason Stokke and John Chenal, progressed this year?

“I think they’ve done a really good job. They’ve continued to progress and you appreciate that.” “Mason is really understanding what he’s supposed to do.”

  • What are the effects of flustering quarterbacks and causing mayhem in the backfield?

“Every time you’re playing, especially QB, if you can be in rhythm thats a good thing and if you can disrupt rhythm that makes it harder. Every QB probably handles it differently.”

  • Jack Coan hasn’t had to deal with much pressure, but how is he handling duress?

“He’s handled it well...I think he’s done a good job.”

  • Is there any excitement to go on the road?

“I think there’s always excitement to the week and this week on the road.”
