From before this week: Madison Cone at the first interception, the real freshman Rachad Wildgoose sees the first game time
Along with some successes on the offensive side of the ball last Saturday, the safety of Scott Nelson and cornerback Madison Cone recorded their first career wiretaps in the 45-14 victory against New Mexico.
Nelson's interception in the third quarter canceled a potential opportunity to score Lobos following his own business in Wisconsin. The UW offense will go to score touchdowns in their next five offensive series.
For the choice of Cone, the second-year cornerback worked in the crack during the fourth quarter when a pass from Sheriron Jones made its way into the hands of the defensive.
"I was a bit like a linebacker in the comedy," Cone told reporters on Wednesday. "My job was just to get a redirect and then read the quarterback, so I worked on the receiver, he worked away from me, so I blocked the quarterback. [I] I saw where he was going with him, so I just read and I just played the game. "
Cone has played in both games this season after having participated in nine races last year, which included a break in the Orange Bowl pass from Wisconsin, which was captured in Miami on December 30th.
"[The interception was] a great call of trust for me ", added Cone," Going forward, now that I've got one [interception] under my belt, [I’m] waiting for me more to start coming my way. "
Cone is currently listed as one of the second team cornerbacks on the Wisconsin depth table, but is often seen as the team's third corner in the slot when defensive coordinator Jim Leonhard implements nickel subpackage.
According to Cone, there are some differences from playing in that cornerback place compared to the outside one.
"The difference is more than right when you're corner, the side line is kind of another defender, so it's a little more space," Cone said. "With that, you just knew the defense a little better, you need to know where your linebackers are, where your safety is, so you do not feel like you're covering all that space knowing that I have a linebacker here and a security here, I can change the way I play, change my influence.This is the biggest difference, it's a lot more space so you have to know where your help is and how to use it. "
Wildgoose, a true freshman from Miramar, Florida, lived his first game in real time in the victory against New Mexico.
"So before the game [defensive coordinator Jim Leonhard] he told me: "Get ready, know all your checks, get mentally prepared," Wildgoose said Wednesday at B5Q. "So in the middle of the third quarter, it was like," Preparations ", so I was advertised." I was screaming on the sidelines, and when I entered I was a little nervous, but then again is the football, [I] Practice for this, so I was prepared. "
Perhaps, as he then described, a suggestion too much advertised?
"I was very satisfied and I was getting a little tired quickly, but after the first trip, I felt comfortable." I felt like I had played for years. "
