Russell and of course the release of Marty ball coach how is the chemistry of the team chains I mean I remember one I was at Michigan. We didn't have that much of a problem no disrespect but now you guys are national contenders. How's the relation between Monte ball and Russell Wilson change the chemistry of the team. Well I think just the people that they are obviously they're very very good football players and different from work you're constantly need to have great kids and you know Russell's doing this in the middle of the summer. -- vying for him to be voted captain by his by his peers but. You know money's great kid very selfless player -- and give great credit to both of their success of the guys up front I think that's what makes the whole lingo here Wisconsin.

Being thought tonight's just that they're hanging out these guys have really been a great. Time for me it's a great experience to get to know these guys going to a great school and university Wisconsin. Playing for coach Dielman coach Chris it's truly been a pleasure and a great thing for me in my life. Could Vilma. You must be very proud right now because Kevin Frazier asked Russell Wilson not to give Luke a politically correct answer about what you -- beat Michigan did they uttered not a suddenly you've got a terrific job in the locker room get these guys ready. So I'm asking you straight up. Last two years Michigan State has beaten you guys how excited are you in the badgers to get Michigan State in this game. Well I am very excited you know we had a player away and this on -- -- too heartbreaking losses but. I think when we came off a few of those two games we realized we were stronger than we -- ever before -- state is good football team they've earned a right it. In his game as well but you know it's a game of respect I think our players respect the weather play but bottom line we definitely wanna get a win it's going to be nice to play him in a neutral environment. Going to be going into the locker room it's a little bit normal sized. So it's it's a good opportunity for us and and then some and it's going to be decided on the field. Somebody nice little shot mister c.'s locker from their coach alike that went Russell -- Look let's go back to you you -- the -- North Carolina State and when you're at NC state offense ran totally threw you. What's it been like working with Paul Crist in the -- there at Wisconsin we're now like your complimentary member albeit one of the front members. Well balanced you know truly healthy you know and the fact that you have Dolphins won -- in July different great things in terms of run blocking pass protecting and always helps and then. Yeah we had a stellar back and money ball and and James White. You know right behind them run in the ball to as well and guys like nick toon -- ever there are some other pretty spectacular -- and you have unbelievable tight -- -- you can always go to to that -- that runs like a receiver so and David Patterson so it's it's nice to get a do a lot of different things and I think. You know were pushing ourselves to be the best team in the country every single week. They called to victory at running back some money ball as one of the best in the country and a guy that had a shot at megabyte it's it's possibilities of being New York. Shortly. Well I obviously don't know Russell mine kind of been balanced in all one another but. Money an exceptional. Got to work so hard every day -- where is. There's a veteran running back in the country I'd like to see you because the balance they had -- run the football catching the football pass protection. Whatever we ask them to do he'll do an on time over and he's really truly an unbelievable football player. And Russell we always say a running backs rather a quarterback's best friend is a running back what are your thoughts on. Yeah -- look -- being get a first down everyone's doing and night you know again in them pretty much when every -- -- right now -- -- spectacular and then. You know I'll see him come out of the backfield catching the football -- some that we worked on all season so far. He's really picked up his game and argue just the way practices. And he practices hard and anybody else -- football team and a lot of guys that go hard and he's one of the guys that really pushes himself every day to be the best. We'll gentlemen thanks for joining us this morning you could've folded up when you were two and two in the conference you didn't and now you're in the Big Ten championship game will see in Indianapolis on Saturday. No I'm on Wisconsin. Hey honey you -- the Big Ten guy so let's start with you and talk about this Big Ten championship game. But for did you disrespect was no that attitude this respect it's got -- no disrespect OKMR -- next year what will have an opportunity. And Michigan have enough to -- fair enough but in this big -- in -- where we're thinking about what we're looking towards isn't on ground defense of grudge match. So I'm thinking. Who is gonna have that aerial attack to really put some points on the board. Yeah which quarterback will play better and we also -- -- -- what wrinkles these teams that in this game it was by the Russell Wilson uses legs just a little bit more in this game. I'm angry with the behind -- right now you talk about the defense especially Wisconsin their defense that. That -- -- in the Miami Dolphins you know the little time you'll know namely that of course and nobody knows that there -- no superstars but the get the job done and I think it will give up on this and by the way. We all know much ball the man what is luck involved in market sort touchdown. School -- touchdowns are.
