Football! It's A Real Thing! That Exists! We Swear! Beat The Clock, 07/12/2012

Will have to hope that Matt Canada takes a "if it ain't broke" approach.

2012 Wisconsin Football Preview: A Lot Can Change In Three Years - SBNation.com

Yesterday we mentioned Matt Canada's "new look" offense. Today, the immortal Bill C. over at the dot com provides the goods on what to expect from the 2012 Badgers:

You can talk yourself into a glass-half-full or half-empty viewpoint with Wisconsin in 2012. On the half-empty side, nearly half the coaching staff is new, the quarterback is new (and potentially hasn't even practiced with the team yet), and a defense that wasn't very good last year is going to have to pick up the slack for likely offensive regression. On the half-full side, the Badgers had to replace their quarterback last year as well (one who had produced very similar stats to those of Danny O'Brien before his move to Madison), the defense is wonderfully experienced and will almost certainly improve, and Montee Ball is still Montee Ball.

Wonderful that all of that didn't mention a dead old man or the ennui ridden ruins of a football empire he left behind. Stay strong, Penn State fans.

Oft-injured Oden wants to play this season

Greg Oden still wants to play, potentially for the world champion Miami Heat (and I guess ring hungry vets everywhere would fall into that pool). But can he? His agent sure thinks so:

"(Oden) called me, and he was kind of excited,'' Conley said Thursday in a phone interview with FOX Sports Florida. "I think he's motivated .... He wants to play. He had said he wanted to take this season off, but he's backed off from that .... He's open to playing this season. I think he will play this season.''

Earn that 6%, my dude. But here's hoping Old Greg is fortunate enough to be blessed with even one more season of health and prosperity. It's been a brutal road for him.
