Topic - Melvin Gordon
Wisconsin running back Melvin Gordon put up some new art work on the walls of his apartment.
It is down to a two-man race now for the starting quarterback job at Wisconsin, and one of the candidates didn't even take a snap at the Badgers spring game.
After passing on opportunities to declare for the NFL draft, running backs Ameer Abdullah of Nebraska and Melvin Gordon of Wisconsin are the country's top two returning rushers.
Wisconsin opened spring practices this month with Montee Ball watching nearby _ an odd experience for someone who had been a fixture in the Badgers' backfield since 2009.
"They're up in my bedroom. I'm looking at those every day. When I wake up I see them," he said after the Badgers' spring game.
"It just reminds me that you can't slack because we've got a great team ahead of us in the first game," he said. "Those guys are ready to go so I've just got to keep motivated. This reminds me of the grind."
