With opening day rapidly approaching in their marquee matchup against LSU, the Wisconsin football team is looking to build off last year's relatively disappointing 9-4 campaign.
Gone is Chris Borland, the Big Ten Defensive Player of the Year and a four year starter for the Badgers. Gone is James White, the steady hand in the passing game who also contributed 1,444 yards on the ground last season. Gone is Jared Abbrederis, seemingly the only threat in the passing game for the past two years other than the occasional Jeff Duckworth grab. Duckworth is also gone.
While it may seem as if the Badgers are totally decimated, they still have plenty of strengths and a piece or two that no one is talking about. Without further ado, let's look at the Badgers' strengths, weaknesses and secret weapons.
