Badgers freshmen watch: Game 11

Remember way back when people were excited about the possibilities of this year’s freshmen (and redshirt freshmen)?

While a number against Iowa, only four appeared in any statistical column: "true freshmen" Rafael Gaglanone (of course) and Austin Hudson and redshirt freshmen Joe Ferguson and Troy Fumagalli.

No doubt the playing time, however brief, will help these young players in 2015, but in 2014 they just didn’t have the impact as expected, with the lone exception of Gaglianone, who has been solid as the team’s placekicker.

Here’s the latest playing time and season stats for Wisconsin’s freshmen:
