Prior to Wisconsin accepting the bowl bid to The Champs Sports Bowl in Orlando, there was considerable discussion by Badger fans and the Wisconsin media whether the Badgers may want to go to Arizona and the Insight Bowl. One word basically resolved that discussion-recruiting.
This will be the fifth straight trip to Florida for the Badgers and Wisconsin views every one of them as important exposure for the team in Florida. Most major college football teams realize how many quality athletes are in Florida and come to Florida to recruit players that Florida, FSU, Miami, and other Florida schools don't get.
Wisconsin is no exception. There are currently 11 players on the UW roster from Florida. The Badgers also currently have oral commitments from two more Florida prospects and with the bowl appearance would hope to add a few more for 2009.
