Hornibrook’s breakout game and Sadler remembered …

He's boring. And that's fine with everyone in Madison. OK, maybe "boring" is the wrong word to describe redshirt freshman quarterback Alex Hornibrook. Let's try ... consistent, even-keeled, and calm. "He hasn't changed all week," Wisconsin head coach Paul Chryst said to me in the tunnel in the pregame on Saturday. "I really wish I could give you more than that.
