Despite averaging over 37 points a game this season, that number couldn't be more misleading. Yes, Wisconsin has the talent to be one of the best offenses in the nation. No doubt. But their execution and play-calling stagnancy has held them back.
There are three reasons Wisconsin statistically has one of the best offenses in the nation despite being largely unimpressive these first six games: UNLV, Austin Peay and Minnesota.
In those three games, the Badgers scored 152 of their 223 points this season. In their other three games, Wisconsin scored 27, 24 and 19 points. One of those games was a loss, the other a very unimpressive win and the other a miracle extra-point block from going into overtime.
So no, despite high expectations Wisconsin's offense hasn't performed to its potential.
That said, a few Badgers have stood out this year.
After a slow start, quarterback Scott Tolzien has been amazingly efficient, throwing for 1,201 yards, seven touchdowns and only two interceptions while completing nearly 70 percent of his passes.
The dual combination of John Clay (692 yards rushing, nine touchdowns) and James White (485 yards, eight touchdowns) has proved to be one of the best rushing tandems in the country.
After replacing Garrett Graham at tight end, Lance Kendricks has emerged as one of the best at that position in the country, catching 25 balls for 391 yards and three touchdowns.
But if Wisconsin is to reach a BCS bowl, their offense is going to need to execute better than they have so far.
