Bielema speaks at Big Ten media day in Chicago

By Russ Owens

CHICAGO (WAOW)-  Big Ten media day kicked off on Monday in Chicago, and Wisconsin Head Coach Bret Bielema got to give his thoughts on the upcoming Badgers football season.

Wisconsin opens the season September 5th at Camp Randall against Northern Illinois, and despite having a younger squad, Bielema thinks this could be a great year.

Says Bielema, "We don't have a lot of high profile names, we'll have a lot of guys starting for the first time, some underclassmen are gonna come into the mix, we're excited about the freshman class we have coming in. A year ago right now we were predicted to do some special things but the ball didn't roll our way and I think our guys have had a year to recover from that, and they have a hunger in them that's burning pretty intense and excited about the opportunity in front of us."
