The award nominations for the Badger football team are starting to pile up as one would expect as the best one loss team in America. Lance Kendricks is a finalist now for the Mackey Award, James White won his fourth freshman of the week award from the Big Ten, and Bielema is up for coach of the year nationally. Lance Kendricks deserves the Mackey and should be Wisconsin's first winner of the award in addition White should be the second straight Badger to win the Big Ten's freshman of the year as Boreland got it last year. White is also for what it is worth number 2 in CBS Sports freshman watch nationally if you want to get a better idea of the respect White and the Badgers are getting this year. Bielema will not win the coach of the year award due to politics but deserves it after righting the ship masterfully after MSU and being at the helm of a team with the least penalties in the nation. One of the great injustices is that there is not an award given to the best offensive line unit as that would go to the Badgers without a contest. In fact if we had it our way the individual awards would be eliminated from the NCAA and only unit awards would be given out for football.
Of course none of the awards seem to matter to the Badgers and they shouldn't, everybody is focused on roses, and we can smell them from here. You never want to look ahead but now it is just one game left and we fully expect victory on Saturday against Northwestern. The three headed tailback monster will leave tread marks on the Wildcat players all day long and that should be enough rain/sleet/snow or shine. We will have more on the game coming up but think about how bad it would normally sound to say at Wisconsin you have a three headed tailback monster, that would mean they probably aren't very good 99.99% of the time (of course the reality is there are at least three future NFL backs on the roster).
