Being a Wisconsin football fan is one hell of a rollercoaster. One minute, the world is doubting us. Next, our quarterback has captivated the attention of the country.

You never know what you’re going to get, but I 100% support and agree with Mertz being on the Davey O’Brien Award watch list.

As I’ve said many times, when Mertz was rolling in 2020, the dude was unstoppable. He might have had the greatest debut in modern college football history. He decimated Illinois’ secondary.

Then coronavirus and injuries hammered our team, and the rest is history.

Now, we wait to see what we get from Mertz in 2021. Trust me when I say that I have complete and total confidence that he’s going to lead Wisconsin to a successful season. You can take that to the bank.
