The Badgers athletic department released the annual Wisconsin football team awards for the 2012 season on Friday night at a team banquet. Earning MVP awards were Jared Abbrederis and Montee Ball on offense and Chris Borland and Mike Taylor on defense.
Long time director of strength and conditioning John Dettmann was giving the only award that's not given to a player as he earned the Captains Cup for his dedication and commitment to Badgers football.
Just a guess here, but I bet that thing wasn't a bit akward or anything, huh? But let's get right into the awards shall we:
