A good story about the consistency of fifth year tailback Dywon Rowan. Basically, he's about all we've got.... but he doesn't make mistakes and he's a former walk-on who's proved he's willing to do what it takes.
A profile of Defensive Back Shane Carter that has this interesting tidbit from Bielema:
"One thing I want to establish in this program is that you'll be rewarded if you do certain
things correctly," Bielema said. "And you'll be held accountable for things you don't do well.
That was kind of a subtle message that we had to try to get across."
Profile of Freshman receiver Xavier Harris, who'll be filling in on the severly depleted offense.
There's a new NCAA rule that says kicker's tees can only be 1 inch from the ground, down from last year's 2 inch tees. But Badger kicker Taylor Mehlhaff says he's adapting well. And apparently his hang time's only down .3 seconds.
Finally, former Kansas State QB Allan Evridge chose to transfer to UW, choosing the Badgers over TCU and Oregon State.
Apparently, he was rather impressed and had a good visit. He also knew Bielema from his time at Kansas State.
The most impressive part of this story is that he won't be getting a scholarship until January, so he's a technical walk-on til then and his parents are footing the bill for the first semester. The other schools couring Evridge offered him scholarships, but he wanted to come to Madison. That says a lot about the program.
His mother, Lori Evridge, echoed those sentiments and sounded ecstatic about Allan's decision.
"The main thing Allan was looking for was trust in a coaching staff," Lori Evridge said. "He doesn't want
any promises. He just wants a fair chance to compete.
"He felt trust from the top to the bottom."
That says a lot about Bret Bielema.
