Wisconsin quarterback Danny Vanden Boom sounds like he’s rising to the task at hand ahead of the Michigan game.

If Graham Mertz and Chase Wolf aren’t able to go against Michigan because of coronavirus, then Vanden Boom will be the quarterback under center for the Badgers. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

According to Bucky’s 5th Quarter, offensive coordinator Joe Rudolph told the media Wednesday that Vanden Boom is performing “well” with the “limited reps” he’s been given entering the game against the Wolverines.

Now, let me be crystal clear here. I have nothing against Vanden Boom, and I’m sure he’s a great guy. I don’t doubt that at all.

Having said that, there’s not a Badgers fan on the planet who wants us to be in a position where Danny Vanden Boom has to be playing quarterback.

We’re all keeping our fingers crossed that Graham Mertz will be ready to roll once Saturday gets here. Even with Michigan being down, I want us to have Mertz out there spinning it over anyone other QB on the roster.

Of course, this is Big 10 football. This is as real as it’s ever going to get, and every player on the roster was brought to Madison to do a job.

If that means Vanden Boom’s number is called upon, then I fully expect him to show ready to play. Excuses won’t be tolerated.
