It appears that it’s going to be a long summer with the Milwaukee Brewers trudging along, and Wisconsin football can't come soon enough for the folks from America's Dairyland. Of course, the Green Bay Packers come first for most, but the Badgers spark plenty of intrigue coming off yet another Rose Bowl appearance.
What will this team look like with a new head coach in charge? Who will win the quarterback competition? Can Wisconsin reach the century mark in points against the Indiana Hoosiers?
Normally, it's the offense that initiates the excitement, and the Badgers have a couple of playmakers that are sure to make this list. But Wisconsin also has some rising young talent on defense, and fans are eager to see if that spring hype translates to success on Saturdays this fall.
See who managed to crack the list of the five Badgers we're most excited to see in 2013.
