Badgers Roundtable Part II (JSOnline.com)

Rich Branch, co-founder buckaround.com - Danny O'Brien showed he was worth the hype. Completing 19 of 23 passes (with at least one drop by my count) for 2 TDs was a very solid contribution. The short passing game suited him well and concerns about his accuracy have been answered. The defensive line looked improved as well. New faces made solid contributions. It was also good to see Borland making contributions on the pass rush.
Rex Sheild, Daily Cardinal - The starting trio of linebackers swarmed to the football all game long as they combined for 23 of the defense’s 50 tackles, led by Mike Taylor’s 13.
