Mic'd up at Wisconsin with RB coach Thomas Hammock

When it comes to developing and churning out some top quality running backs, Wisconsin's Thomas Hammock is about as good as it gets.

During the 2012 season Wisconsin had three backs go over 550 yards (one of only three schools to do so). Two of those backs (Montee Ball and James White) combined for nearly 2,800 yards rushing, while the third (Melvin Gordon) led the country in yards per carry (10 ypc). 

Take a look here at how coach Hammock approaches practice and goes about his business with his guys. Combined with his ability on the recruiting trail, it's pretty easy to see why Gary Andersen wanted to keep him in Madison when he took the job.
