Last season, the Wisconsin offensive line was arguably the best in the nation. Gone from that line is, Gabe Carimi, John Moffit and Bill Nagy. All of whom are going to be in rotations this season in the National Football League. Could a line that is missing two first team All-Americans be as good as or maybe better than last year’s line? Maybe. This season the offensive line is not only the five deep but two to four guys behind that could step in and play at a high level.
The first man in the rotation being Ryan Groy, who will start this week in place for Travis Fredrick. I am sure all Wisconsin fans have seen the screen pass from last week where Ryan runs with James White. Groy is a very athletic kid (what UW linemen aren’t) who has game experience from last season. A guy who I foresee playing this season is Rob Havenstein. He is a mountain of a man. Havenstein battled with Josh Oglesby all fall camp for the starting job at Right Tackle but lost out to the senior.

This offensive line can be just as good as last years if it can remain consistent. With the leadership of Peter Konz and Kevin Zeitler, this line is built for success. The Badger line should not be categorized as being the “Big Uglies” because without them, the prom queen (backfield) would not have anyone to make her look good.
