The receiving corps Sorgi will be throwing to this year Lee Evans, Jonathan Orr, Brandon Williams, Darrin Charles is arguably the best in the nation.
Over the last two years combined, Badger tailback Anthony
Davis has run for more yards (3,021) than anyone else in the Big Ten.
Davis has compiled 17 games of 100 or more rushing yards.
The Badgers' safeties Ryan Aiello and Jim Leonhard
finished 12 on the team in tackles in 2002 and return for 2003.
Leonhard led the nation in interceptions with 11, led the Big Ten in
pass breakups with 25 and was the first sophomore to be voted team MVP
since 1947. Linebacker Jeff Mack, the 2002 Alamo Bowl Defensive
MVP, and tackle Anttaj Hawthorne put some teeth in the
The streak: Wisconsin has had a 1,000-yard rusher for each of the
last 10 seasons.
Margin notes: The 2002 Badgers finished ninth nationally in
turnover margin at plus-1.29 per game.

Schedule Analysis: Wisconsin's non-conference slate offers a
challenge in the opener at West Virginia, then three fairly
easy home games. The Badgers' Big Ten slate is favorable, as Michigan
is off and Ohio State and Purdue
visit Madison. Of the four Big Ten road games, only Penn State had a
winning Big Ten record last year.
Final Word: Coach Barry Alvarez is hoping the team that showed up
in the Alamo Bowl victory over Colorado is the one that shows up this
Evans' health is a big concern, but with experience at quarterback
and running back, plus other talented receivers, Evans should be able to
work himself back into the mix at his own pace. Wisconsin's linebackers
highlight an experienced defense. With Michigan missing from the
schedule, 10 wins is a strong possibility and a Big Ten title is not out
