The Badgers are in a bit of a rough spot.

The junior has not necessarily been a superstar this season, but he has experience. If he does not play, inexperienced sophomore Jack Coan will get the start. If he can pull off a stellar game, he could potentially pull the starting spot going forward.
Oh yeah, Hornibrook is not the only Badger that might miss the game. The team also has six players either 'questionable' or 'out'. And here's the kicker, they're all defensive players.
Saturday's game is a must-win for the middling Badgers. This could be Coan's time for heroics. Let's hope.
