Position battles have been on hold for quite some time now for Wisconsin football, but they're about to pick back up with the start of fall practice next week.
The dog days of summer have just about arrived, but fall camp should help to keep us occupied until the start of the season on Aug. 31. It gives new head coach Gary Andersen just a few weeks to sort out the unsettled positions not only on offense and defense, but special teams as well.
Last season, it took far too long for the Badgers to get settled in at multiple positions, and some of them never came to fruition. That's why it's important for Andersen to figure out the best men for the jobs available during fall practice, or at least before Wisconsin's first test Week 3 at Arizona State.
So what jobs are up for grabs? Let's preview the biggest position battles set to take place during fall practice for the Badgers.
