It's week three of fall camp for the Badgers and it appears we have a third person in the mix to start in week one at Right Guard. Yep, according to Jeff Potrykus of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel Zac Matthais has a shot to win the RG job.
On the recruiting front the Wisconsin State Journal has a nice write up on DT Craig Evans of Sun Prairie who is high on the Badgers targets for the 2014 class. If Wisconsin lands him it could be a huge sign this class will become perhaps the single best in Badger history - at least in terms of rankings and hype.

All I've got to say to this one is "Thank God We're not in the Big 12." Is the Big Ten perfect, far from it, but the disloyalty and shenanigans that happened over the last few seasons aren't something you'll see from Delany's Dozen anytime soon. (Side note, make sure you start checking out Delany's Dozen as Andy and Nate from our site take things over... just a few more touch ups and it's a go - so look for it to be ready by Monday at the VERY latest!)
