Collegian: Stacey Bedell ready to compete with best in college football

Nick Canelas of the Daily Collegian has a story on Stacey Bedell's performance at Wisconsin and how his season-ending injury last year ended up being a valuable learning opportunity.

Bedell overcame the challenge of having to sit and watch his team play by turning the situation into a valuable learning tool. In that time, not only was he in the weight room physically preparing himself to play again, but he was also learning what it takes to be a college football player.

"When you make the transition from high school to college there's a lot of things. Really every aspect is different," UMass running backs coach Roderick Plummer said. "With him being someone that's really smart, he picks up on things quickly. But really there's steps to take every day at this level, especially when you're a freshman at this level for the first time."
