We talk to 2009 team captain Chris Maragos about his incredible journey. It starts as a high school troublemaker and transitions to a walk-on wide receiver at Western Michigan. After that didn't work out, a bit of luck and perseverance turned him into a walk-on safety at Wisconsin and later an honorable mention All-Big Ten choice. His NFL path has been just as winding, from undrafted free agent, to out of a job, to special teams force. Among familiar faces with the Seahawks, he plans to savor this experience.
UWBadgers.com senior writer Mike Lucas caught up with Montee Ball, who touched on a number of topics, including his first text message from Peyton Manning, how he overcame his early season fumbling issues, and his advice to Melvin Gordon as he was trying to make a decision very similar to the one Ball had to make.
We asked a number of Badger student-athletes and coaches how they would spend Super Bowl Sunday. Which coach had to pass on tickets to the big game? Where is the football team gathering to watch their former teammates? Find out here.
