Badgers' offense shines in spring game, but questions remain

Posted: Updated:
Madison, WI (WXOW) - - The spring season is over for the Wisconsin Badgers. Now it's back to lifting, conditioning and preparing for the real deal in the fall. The Badgers' offense showed some nice flashes in Saturday's spring game at Camp Randall Stadium. Joel Stave led the first-team offense to a touchdown in his only drive. Rob Wheelwright showed the ability to possibly be a compliment to Alex Erickson at receiver.

There are still questions when it comes to the passing game however, ranging from the inexperienced receiving core to the newly built offensive line.

"I think we can have a very good passing game this season. I think we have a lot of good playmakers in place," Stave said. "I think the things Alex has been able to do as the leader of the group and if the guys just kind of follow in his footsteps and follow in his lead. I think that will be for them."

Head coach Paul Chryst thinks his team can be pretty good throwing the football, "but we've got a lot of work to do."

"Hope is not a method but I think there are pieces," he said.

The Badgers open the regular season September 5 against Alabama.
