  • In the midst of UW’s bye week, it’s a good time to take stock of where the program sits. Mike Vorel takes a look at the offense to separate the wheat from the chaff. Unfortunately, Vorel finds a whole lot of chaff. While different facets of the offense have looked promising at times, there’s no single element that has been consistently strong.
