Fickell brings Badgers buzz to Milwaukee

NOW: Fickell brings Badgers buzz to Milwaukee

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- There’s a Badgers buzz that is following Luke Fickell everywhere he goes. Whether it’s the recruiting trail or the big red rally in Milwaukee.

“The reception, I've been incredibly happy with. Some would say 'you guys have done some things and created some energy' but our real job is to make sure we can do this come September and October," said Badgers head coach Luke Fickell.

Fickell has won over fans and many recruits sending out what they call the bat signal on Twitter when a new player commits.

“For me I look at it as I want to let as many of our fans and former players into our program so they can get a good glimpse of what's going on," said Fickell.

The bat signal has gone out a few times for marquee quarterbacks, including SMU transfer Tanner Mordecai, who will likely start this season before trying his luck in the NFL.

"This past year he showed some other things that make him a bit more dynamic not as a dual-threat guy, but a guy that can create and extend plays," said Fickell.
