While many Wisconsin fans are undoubtedly still reeling from the Badgers' disappointing 21-19 Rose Bowl loss to TCU, UW coaches have already moved on and are preparing for next season.

No, they won't have offensive leaders Scott Tolzien or John Clay. No, they won't have defensive stars J.J. Watt or Jay Valai.
But, they do have a lot of returning talent.
