Badger offense shows signs of life


MADISON (WKOW) -- The Badger offense finally showed some signs of life Friday morning. They moved the football on the defense and ended the practice with Bart Houston tossing a long touchdown to Jazz Peavy. Offensive coordinator Andy Ludwig had been waiting for his group to turn the corner.

"One of the things you deal with early in camp is you're putting in the entire offense in a short span of time...Right now, we've got the whole thing in. Now, we're in the process of scaling it back. Going back and detailing and refining techniques and schemes. So, looking to get better. That should show us improvement as we continue forward."

The offense certainly had room for growth. Ludwig and the coaching staff were having a hard time pinpointing a starting quarterback because noone was consistently moving the ball in practice.

"That's the game of football. You identify a crisis. You correct that crisis and then the next crisis arises. You attack that. That's the game. So, we're working our way through it."

Of course, that doesn't mean Ludwig is satisfied with the progress.

"Absolutely not. Never satisfied with the performance. Always things to improve on."

We will have a clear indication of how much improvement the offense has made on Monday. That is when the Badgers have their second scheduled scrimmage.
