  07/30/22 - QB Graham MertzrSr/2025, Florida

  Graham Mertz studied history earlier this summer, Wisconsin football history. His teachers: Former UW quarterbacks Scott Tolzien, who started a total of 26 games in 2009 and 2010; and Brooks Bollinger, who started a total of 42 games from 1999 through 2002. "The coolest part of them is that both of them wanted to start like a quarterback fraternity," Mertz said Wednesday on Day 2 of the Big Ten preseason meetings. "That is one thing I really want to do when I leave here is be connected to the guys younger than me." Mertz has 20 starts on his UW résumé, seven in the COVID-affected 2020 season and 13 last season.

The Badgers are 13-7 in those 20 games and Mertz will be the first to tell you he needs to make more plays and commit fewer turnovers. According to Mertz, he was able to meet with Tolzien for nearly two hours. He chatted less formally with Bollinger throughout Braelon Allen's charity softball game in Fond du Lac. "Their biggest thing was: 'Whatever you need, whenever you need it, hit us up,'" Mertz said. "The biggest thing was that they wanted to get to know me and I wanted to get to know them. It was great." - Journal Sentinel
