After a summer of lofty expectations and pre-season hype, including a No. 4 ranking in the AP poll, Wisconsin football kicks off its 2018 season Friday night against the Western Kentucky Hilltoppers. For many on the Badgers’ new-look defense, Friday will be their first collegiate game.

The 2018 Wisconsin Badgers have a unique luxury when it comes to their incoming freshmen: If all goes according to plan, they may not be needed at all. The coaching staff, led by head coach Paul Chryst, has emphasized development and deference to the best interests of the team, which creates an ideal situation for upperclassmen to pay their dues and earn playing time as they progress.

Yet in recent seasons, some players have proven to be too valuable to keep off the field, including Jonathan Taylor and Danny Davis in 2017 and Quintez Cephus and Bradrick Shaw in 2016. This year’s freshmen class, too, may have some players who will contribute sooner rather than later.

No ordinary issue would have been sufficient to awaken “Unopinionated” from its slumber. This is a topic very near and dear to my heart.
After losing starting cornerbacks Derrick Tindal and Nick Nelson along with starting safety Natrell Jamerson, senior D’Cota Dixon is the lone returning member of the Badgers’ 2017 defensive backfield.

When it comes to summertime in the Midwest, days are filled with tubing, sitting on a beach, boating on the countless lakes and for many, working. Yes, for two student athletes who play for the Wisconsin Badgers, their summers to this day are spent working and hanging out on their family farms.
From fields of corn to the hustle and bustle of the big city, Wisconsin sophomore center Tyler Biadasz has made the transition from Amherst, a rural town with a population of just 1,035, according the 2010 census, to Madison.

But, on Oct. 22, 2017, midway through the third quarter of Cleveland’s game against the Tennessee Titans, something happened while Thomas was blocking Brian Orakpo on a Duke Johnson run. Thomas went to the ground and started writhing in pain, grabbing his left arm. It turned out, revealed on the following Monday morning, that he had torn his left triceps, causing him to have surgery and ending his 11th season on a sour note.
