Chris Borland interview - Wisconsin Spring Football Game

When you think of Wisconsin, offense usually comes to mind. Big, tough physical lines blocking for a strong running game. But the Wisconsin defense deserves credit for the program’s consecutive Rose Bowl appearances.

I talked with co-defensive coordinator Chris Ash—who is in his second as co-coordinator working in concert with Charlie Partridge–to get his breakdown of the Badger defense. See the Q&A in this post.

Twitter: Frazier, Pace denied HOF induction

The 17-member 2012 College Football Hall of Fame class was announced Tuesday, and former Purdue running back Otis Armstrong was the lone Big Ten product inducted. That being the case, there were several glaring omissions, highlighted by Nebraska’s Tommie Frazier and Ohio State’s Orlando Pace. Both snubs sparked quite a reaction on Twitter, and rightfully so.
