Brief discussion with Andy Coppens of Madtown Badgers

On Wednesday quarterback Danny O’Brien was officially introduced as the newest member of the Wisconsin Badgers. So much for that Penn State sweatshirt I suppose.

This is the second season in a row Wisconsin has welcomed a quarterback transfer from the ACC, leaving some to wonder if the conference is becoming a farm system for Wisconsin quarterbacks. While Danny O’Brien is not Russell Wilson, he is still decidedly better than any other option the Badgers had to look forward to going in to 2012.

I explored some of the common questions that will come with O’Brien’s transfer to Wisconsin yesterday on Examiner, but I wanted to be sure to get the opinions of someone closer to the Wisconsin program than me. So if we are discussing Wisconsin, odds are you know who we are bringing on.

Andy Coppens, editor and featured columnist over at Madtown Badgers, was kind enough to spend a few minutes this morning reacting to the news. You may remember we touched a bit on the state of the quarterback situation in our last podcast, which ironically was also with Andy. Be sure to listen to that when you have the time so you can compare and contrast the quarterback situation in Madison.
