First game week for the Wisconsin Badger 2022-2023 campaign started with some sad news today. Backup Quarterback Chase Wolf’s season is done after tearing his meniscus. Fellow QB Graham Mertz shared his disappointment about the situation as Wolf was supposedly having a very impressive camp. The senior Quarterback appeared in just four games last year, but in 2020 we saw his importance to this team with his good play in tough circumstances against our rivals Minnesota.

Unfortunately, like any other season ending injury, no time to sulk about it. It is next man up, which has always been handled well for Wisconsin football. With the injury to Wolf, this makes way for either Deacon Hill or Myles Burkett battling for the number 2 spot. Both had a good showing at camp, the reps they will get with the number 2’s will be intriguing to see which one steps up. Deacon Hill should have the upper hand as of now over the true Freshman Burkett. Hill has a rocket for an arm, but struggles with his decision making and accuracy at times. There was some hype for Hill coming out of Highschool as a 4-star recruit. Either way, this time will be good for both of them in development. Let’s just hope Mertz stays healthy this season.
Again, my thoughts go out to Chase Wolf and his recovery. May not always get the love, but a dependable backup Quarterback is crucial to a good team. Here’s my favorite play from Wolf’s career.
