Fall Camp starts today in earnest. Here are some tidbits to accompany the official beginning of the 2008 football season:
First, the early edition of the 2008 Badger Media Guide (300 pages of pdf).
The UW athletic department's Assistant Director for Communications lays out the plan to get the word out on practice here. It's robust. Coach speaks, blogs, sideline reporting, practice plays of the week. Forget me, looks like UWbadgers.com is the place for your fall camp news. Here's a menu of what's on tap at uwbadgers.com: Menu.
Here's Bielema's first "Coach Speak" segment, interviewing new "player correspondent," Jai Valai (sophomore, currently #1 on the depth chart for SS, passing Aubrey Pleasant). Video. Valai lets on that the defensive backfield chemistry (read, communication) wasn't as good last year as in years past, and it's a priority to fix it. Apparently, Deandre Levy (senior, strong side linebacker) is crazy. I think I like that in a linebacker.

As usual, the Journal Sentinel has excellent coverage of practice, starting with a Camp Preview, here.
