Bring him in now targets and badger football Jersey Galloway the Wisconsin state journal on Madison dot com joining us on the Schneider orange hotline hello Jason I don't man. They're good Dario. Door close so I my the anticipation is high everybody's way you see with his offense is gonna look like being number one question is how much (%expletive) has Stony Brook progressed I guess the best way to put. I think he's come in the quite a long way from last year I think that he's put in a lot of time that saw he's and he he's got a couple things outside of outside of you got beat normal practice schedule it would he would work with George Whitfield. Our quarterback to root from opportunity a goat during the spring in the summer he would but he'd pat academy. But he's spending a lot of time trying to work on his game from walking adamant ball and it seems like an arm strength is and and it is a little bit better eighties or the ball more consistently. Hobbled or the orchard placed actual games you know you got it I think he showed a lot of black lacquer. Up in it now the quarterback but. Getting our trip was was was a little little off like at that I think he's in court that a little bit then. I'm I think you just gotta be a little bit more consistent this year there's definite some ups and downs as a freshman but but I think you could have a better season. So what is the number one concern for this team going into the season. Yeah I think I think maybe get an a couple areas particularly though I backing group which it didn't seem like. You know early in the pocket and in that they were gonna act at this backer but now that the injury to Jack's which he had in that bond. You'd you'd certainly only have you know three guys in the inside entry got out that you he'll comparable. Probably putting in there to to put significant. Snaps so I think that you can get by with a three man rotation those two spot obviously you'd like at a fort guide keep those guys more rash. But it did they supper one more injury you know I'd inside or outside linebacker. On they could start to get really that it could start to get. You know pretty airy with flu with some of the updated at white haired and we're not sure you know about guys like Tyler got pregnant. Arrington are are really ready to to play a day were also I think. I think you know it's in depth pair of 8080 over the depth in the secondary to the tool that unproven. I'm so I had it I think it's part of what it. Not hard look at pick out of position and say you know that the starting players that position. You all are gonna do well he's acting I think gotten. You know he'll pre loaded across or would you look at the starting lineup but I thinker you know a few issues. Adept likely to look at and say well it might he want a tree for public. Soul and the defense is would you say that's the strength of this ballclub. Yeah I would I would say so I'm you know I think it proved a lot couple years. There that they can be one of the best keep it in the country and yeah I expect obviously they're switching between the coordinator for the second Euro but. But I think Jim wanted to do a lot of what just Wilcox at last years. Then that's pretty much keep a lot of things the same not make too many tweaks in a discount what those players got baked clay. I think he understands that. And it still that the players about their be one of the best keep it does in the country I think he's got to want. Want to want them loose united they're returning everybody on the deep with a blind eye we talked about a linebacker depth at the Ottawa talent they are about the guys that are. Are starting and healthy heard ago. And in a particularly good about. A nick Nelson transfer quarterback is Burke like sojourn Shelton. And it chart gamers and making the switch to ache he has and starting and William clay I think they feel you know really good about those two guys coming in. Starter so I think that even there's going to be EE that can stay healthy. I think it's gonna be. PD can never be is good at last year maybe a little better. I was gonna ask you about Jim Leonard gimme your thoughts I mean like you'd said this is second time in the last couple years they've changed defensive coordinators and you are re thought it was gonna tail off if Dave Randle left and as matter of fact the defense. Our got better from what he had set up it was accentuated so how do you think this this new you know. Jim letter taking this job has been how do you think this is going to go what is impressed you about Jim Leonard. You know I think he did you hear a guy that I think right when he came in last year he really. And you'll regain their respective. As players knew you'd think with that with the first year coach. I'm Il maybe. Maybe take a lot of the guys to buy into that somebody like that but I think they really respect. It's been years in the NFL what he was able to. To do as a player and I think that he has the ultimate respect for you ever body on that team right all the players and coaches and I think I think it it has been the coordinator diet and there's a lot of people worried it. You know it is always second year coach ever but it it's the coordinator or but I think if you talk to London and in and talked to other people in football about him ordered. I think he he he's a guy that really high. IQ purple ball on a guy that not going to be overwhelmed by adding two you know created deep into game plan or or call plays. I think he's I think he's tradition really well from everything or everything I've seen. And I think he's going to be you know I really good job here all up to kind of see what the deeper look like these first few games. And and C pat you know how he called the game but. And I'm pretty optimistic that that he Newbury job. I'll be going back to the defense real quick and you talked a little bit about some the depth there but to they've got a freshman Scott Nelson so way they'd give me your thoughts on on Nelson and how he is look specifically. And you know obviously he's gonna have a way to the world on the shoulders arms very very veteran style defense. And eight automatic no opens its Mickelson aunts or else you. Yet make note that now he's a guy that you know the coaching staff. Really at. Afraid to talk about this offseason I don't think I think they're pretty competent what he's going to be able do you odd and they're not afraid to put. Put that cut expectations on him yeah I think the hype surrounding Elton. It really comes from. What the players and coaches that said about him throughout the talk more so than. It just a media hyping it up on the ground so I think that date they feel really good about what you're gonna deal you. On ya I think he can practices you know since since he got your lack jury that depressing cracked it about you watch. Oh you know watch fall camp in. The real like you haven't seen eat do you ever really noticed that dealt an allowance because he's he's he's really good cover guy and are currently too often. On so I mean we'll have to you know he is so that'd be his first game tonight for a Diaw playing an atom you know maker opera all Italy and the purple why. But I think he's from everything I've seen heard it looks like he's gonna be. A really good player and to pair him with Derek in the on the other side who who obviously at a pre tiger last year I'm I think they're going to be going to be hard opportunity. Obvious starting quarterback do it that in the country that are too much better than the notes. Said to have because you do have a couple younger guys you've got to figure ran who's a sophomore is a a lot of milk. Freshman you've got to some youth that is the back ups there are so if this and granted you never look for injury but it does happen in football we all know. What is what is the the scarcity of have I'm gonna say experience depth that they have defensively. Yeah you know it's I think you feel better about the defensive line depth and Ian black sure I think we saw kind of neither a world Expos in the deep part of why a woman went on a hole and missed some games in the chi was up for the vacant title game I think it. It really hurt that bad I think water milk coming and it being Elena. Player or deepened today and it I think you're ran having another year Edgar's belt is true freshman last year kind after into the fire. What in general and roll eater so Bob died I think he's going to be able to better that your Q note I think it's a little better about. Eat with the wind equity talk about the concerns it. At linebacker in the depth there and I think a quarterback. And safety. You know they've been really like what they see from topic here Williams that. Potential number three quarterback. But they also be alert also indicate that maybe he can be a little bit. Inconsistent sometimes in a looper to garlic it's still battling emperor for the third spot and either that I had another doubt he's accurate. Either to Beckett achy Joseph Ferguson and Packers got ever played you know a huge role on the defense yet. Hear what content so that it's a little bit unproven in the secondary after after the top or. Just a lot this week and how some other guys on that he developed and it can stay healthy. Brokered before I let you go what does he expectation now most people seem to think that this team should win the west they should be competitive they did it could possibly knock off one of the teams in the east going into the Big Ten championship. And ultimate goal obviously to get into the final four what is I guess how realistic is that your arts. I think it's possible and try to play out I don't think they should be expecting that -- and I think that would still be. Either ranked ninth intent right now one poll that's probably pretty act out at about number guide it. I think it should get would be in the copper station and they really should be able to navigate this schedule. Fill out. You know one loss may be too. And they certainly have a chance that we'll know I think when you look at each individual game well. They could definitely each game but acting a little art went twelve straight games and they do a lot of a cut a lot of tricky games in their spot. It's gonna be hard to beat you Michael I was here and state. I'm thinking (%expletive) did you gain those two teams that are totally out itself. I think they're gonna win the less I'm thinking 111 incident in two when the west. I'm I'm pretty sure they're going to be an underdog against. Insider they're at it. How strong a real quick or one more question how strong is that east because one team like I keep talking about the people forget about. As Penn State Penn State I I I think sitting there at number six they've got their own recruits in their now for much we talk about Michigan Harbaugh needing to win or Meyer and Ohio State. Penn State to be the fly enjoyment. I think so yeah I think they're a legitimate playoff contender match here they're returning. A lot of those guys they sorely in and Barkley and I'm unity. You know it's a team that. You know they didn't have the bats are a lot they wouldn't you know it I would have been in the playoffs and made a couple games early in the season before they got it going. I'm and it by the in the united they probably were one of the top fourteen so I'm. Duncan and see what they did it here in that incident at the game is going to be early staying. On the hand and obviously Michigan replacing it many starters. As they are gonna be you know cure it in the issued the day. They count all the bit irked me. Are still able. To compete for that that that he crowned so I think he is generally do with a I didn't and I think. I think those two teams that are legitimate job legitimate contenders that year and. I think Michigan lot like drop off but I think here at least a later in the year it could be better to error now. Fantastic stuff Jason appreciate it is always look forward to reading your stuff is wall throughout the season we'll check again soon okay.
