After sharing time at quarterback for Wisconsin last year with now-departed senior Bart Houston, returning sophomore Alex Hornibrook should have the job to himself heading into the 2017 season.
After adding some bigger bodies along the offensive and defensive lines and some experienced, play-making receivers to the roster, Jeff Brohm felt as if he had filled some glaring holes - even if it meant changing the strategy a bit.
