As the 2012 college football season rapidly approaches, the Wisconsin Badgers are preparing to defend their Big Ten title. They return 11 starters from a year ago and have a few key weapons on both sides of the ball.
One of those top players is running back Montee Ball. He put the NFL on hold for another year and decided to return for his senior season. He had a season for the record books in 2011, rushing for over 1,900 yards and scoring 39 total touchdowns. But has he already established himself as an all-time great in Wisconsin history?
The Badgers have a rich history that includes 13 conference titles and have produced two Heisman winners over the years. To crack a list like this would be a remarkable accomplishment for a player that still has a year left of eligibility.
As we get closer to the college football season, here is where Ball currently sits among the top Wisconsin Badgers of all time.
