2017 Wisconsin Badgers The 2017 Wisconsin Badgers are back once again for another season of Big Ten football with National Title hopes in their hearts. A heart-breaking last minute loss in last years BIG10 championship game to Nebraska demolished not only the conference championship hopes, but the National Championship as well. Our Badgers lost some historic players but return many as well. The biggest concern for this year is the development of Freshman (RS) QB that is expected to start for our Badgers. Coach Cocky has said he's ready for the challenges that are coming and expect Chad Day to play very well. Offense: Redshirt Freshman QB Chad Day to be starter. Experience ground game and receiving game. Sophomore All-American WR Brandon Barber is expected to dominate once again this year. Defense: Another great defense is under Coach Cocky's wings as he expects them to play well for the new developing QB. "We need our defense to play exceptionally well this year". Wisconsin if off of NCAA Recruiting viloations and may sign 2 Five-Star athletes with a total of 15 signees. Wisconsin had the number 1 recruiting class last year in the nation. Hopefully Coach Cocky and company can continue their success in that category. 13 Seniors + 2 = 15 (Two Five Stars) Go Badgers!!
