Is Russell Wilson the missing link?


Right about now, new Badger quarterback Russell Wilson is pouring over playbooks, learning the language of UW’s offense and working out in anticipation of one of the most buzzed-about seasons in recent program history.
One way or another, Wilson is making some sort of adjustment for this upcoming season.
There’s no doubt Wilson has a fair amount of work ahead of him, but he’s not the only one who’s going to have to adjust. Wisconsin football will have to adapt to having a mobile quarterback.
After two years of creating strong pockets for former quarterback Scott Tolzien, the offensive line — as well as the rest of the offense — will have to be ready any time Wilson feels the need to roll out of the pocket to create a better opportunity to advance the ball or just get a clearer view down the field.
Wilson is hypothetically the piece that was missing for what could be one of the most talented football teams Wisconsin has seen in a long time. But just as he has to get used to a new system, team and town, the Badgers have to get used to him as a leader and what he can bring to the field.
I am predicting a BCS game for sure.  GO BUCKY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
