Jonathan Taylor is handling the hype heading into 2018

Heisman hype for Jonathan Taylor in the preseason hasn't affected his preparation for the upcoming 2018 season.

Taylor says that he's feeling great entering the 2018 season, and that ignoring the hype has been easy since it's a team mindset.

His first practice with Wisconsin was the moment that he knew he'd fit right in and that he'd work well as a Badger. Taylor says that his influence as a runner would include great NFL backs like Adrian Peterson and Arian Foster.

Taylor also tells Mike Heller and Jon Arias that former Badgers running backs like Melvin Gordon have been a resource for advice about handling the attention a Wisconsin running back gets.
