Wisconsin graduated several contributors on defense, particularly on the edge, so it'll be up to returning players like Andrew Van Ginkel to keep up the outstanding play on that side of the ball for the Badgers.
Van Ginkel told Brian Posick that everyone's aware of the expectations for the upcoming season, but the outside 'noise' doesn't matter as much as the hard work the team is putting in. With top edge rushers gone from the program due to graduation, Van Ginkel's role should increase significantly.
Wisconsin football opened up camp on August 2 ahead of their season opener against Western Kentucky on August 31.
