Scott Tolzien, the unheralded offensive general for the Wisconsin Badgers, must get his team off to a quick start, with his own performance in the passing game.
The Badgers excelled in the running game last season with a three headed monster of John Clay, Montee Ball, and Zach Brown, totaling 2187 yards, and 25 touchdowns between them.
As great as the #15 rushing attack in 2009 may have been, the play of first year starter Scott Tolzien was greatly overlooked.
His ever-efficient year of 2705 yards, a 64.3 % completion percentage, and his 16 to 11 touchdown/interception ratio was very useful in Wisconsin's offensive attack, where they failed to top 30 points in just three contests.
Tolzien's efficient passing will be a big part of Wisconsin's offensive success this season, even if the team is a running team behind John Clay and Montee Ball.
Here are five games Tolzien must play well in to get the Badgers off to the right start they need in 2010.
