Young Badgers Tracker: Does Shaw need a TD celebration?

It’s time for another edition looking at the playing time and statistics of the younger players on the roster of the Wisconsin Badgers.

Bradrick Shaw has shown something in the times he’s gotten a chance to run the ball. However, those chances have been few and far between lately.

Since getting 15 carries against Georgia State, Shaw has rushed the ball four times. He got two carries against Nebraska last Saturday, with his first a 21-yard burst for a touchdown.

It wasn’t Shaw’s first TD of the season — he also had one against Akron — but apparently he needs some work on what to do once he gets to the end zone. At least, his running back mate thinks so.

Here’s the complete rundown of young Badgers with season stats:

Have not played; Kevin Estes, OL; Mitchell Herl, TE; Zach Hintze, K; Henry Houden, WR; Kraig Howe, DE; Troy Laufenberg, RB; Blake Mielke, S; David Plaff, DE; Max Praschak, OLB; Gunner Roberge, NT; Kelly Thomas, DE; Nick Thomas, ILB; Bret Verstegen, S; Jake Whalen, OLB

Dave Heller is the author of the upcoming book Ken Williams: A Slugger in Ruth’s Shadow as well as Facing Ted Williams Players From the Golden Age of Baseball Recall the Greatest Hitter Who Ever Lived and As Good As It Got: The 1944 St. Louis Browns
