The third of three episodes this week (though we recorded on Tuesday evening, for full disclosure), Owen and Jake are joined by Jesse Temple from The Athletic to tackle Wisconsin’s running backs, fullbacks and cornerbacks (analytically speaking ... uh, not physically speaking).

Here’s the full breakdown:

  • Wisconsin’s running backs heading into 2019: Tons of talk about expectations for Jonathan Taylor, the Doak Walker Award winner’s final year in Madison, and who will receive the bulk of snaps in the spring—whether it could be Garrett Groshek, Nakia Watson or Bradrick Shaw.
  • Badgers fullbacks will need to step up with Alec Ingold pursuing his NFL career. Is it Mason Stokke and John Chenal’s chance to take hold of the position this spring?
  • UW’s cornerbacks return all the major contributors from last season, so the competition starting in late March will be very interesting to watch. We look at what needs to happen for this position group to become a strength of the defense and what concerns there are, if any, that revolve around these corners.
