"Your boy went off"....

Wisconsin senior wide receiver Jared Abbrederis said in this week's NFL.com College Football 24/7 podcast that he's had an "OK" start to the season.

So, 33 receptions for 572 yards (17.3 yards per catch) and four touchdowns through five games is just an "OK" start? And remember -- he's produced those numbers on a run-first team with a new coaching staff and a new quarterback and lacking an established No. 2 (and a No. 3, for that matter) wide receiver.

Abbrederis (6-foot-2, 190 pounds) obviously has high standards for himself, but even he had to be pleased with his performance last week in a 31-24 loss at Ohio State. Abbrederis had the best game of his career -- 10 receptions for 207 yards and a touchdown -- and it came while he was being shadowed by Ohio State's Bradley Roby, considered the best cornerback in the nation by numerous analysts. Abbrederis schooled Roby, to the point that by late in the first half, the Buckeyes were sending safety help Roby's way.

Wisconsin receiver coach Chris Beatty told the Wisconsin State Journal that some NFL scouts that were at the Badgers' football offices Monday were impressed with Abbrederis' performance.

"They were like, 'Hey, your boy went off,' and he did," Beatty told the newspaper. "(The NFL) is long range and I know he's disappointed we didn't win. He wants to win; that's more than the stats or anything like that. At the same time, you're playing against arguably the best corner in the country -- when you have a day like that, it can't hurt (his draft stock)."
I think when there's enough will and aggression, there's no shortage of talent either.

Have to post a bit of class from the Badgers displayed as well.. and might help on Saturdays when they look different... the patients actually did the shaving/cutting.

MADISON, Wis. -- In an unofficial poll of Wisconsin football players, Badgers linebacker Ethan Armstrong would likely finish second in the voting for best movie-star looks (behind quarterback Joel Stave and his flowing blonde mane, of course). One of the defining characteristics of Armstrong's appearance has been his long hair, which he'd spent more than a year growing out.

On Thursday afternoon in the team locker room, however, Armstrong sacrificed that hair for a good cause. He was among a group of eight players to take part in Wisconsin's "Shave to Save" function to raise awareness and funding for childhood cancer research at the American Family Children's Hospital.

"As soon as they kind of said it's for the kids, it's for a great cause and everything, I just kind of jumped at the chance," Armstrong said. "I knew it was an opportunity I couldn't pass up on."

The other Wisconsin players that volunteered to have their heads shaved Thursday were left guard Ryan Groy, tight end Jacob Pedersen, right guard Kyle Costigan, wide receiver Connor Cummins, wide receiver Chase Hammond, linebacker Conor O'Neill and wide receiver Lance Baretz.

Two more players, defensive end Ethan Hemer and tight end Eric Steffes will have their heads shaved next week.

Patients from the American Family Children's Hospital took part in shaving the players' heads. When it was over, patients and their families enjoyed a pizza party with the Badgers.
