Not playing doesn't just hit home for current players but several former players like Alec Ingold have been showing their support on social media.
Ingold is now entering his 2nd season with the Las Vegas Raiders and still knows many players on this year's Wisconsin roster. He says he's been in contact with many of them just trying to keep their heads up.
"I think a lot of guys that I've reached out to at least are still optimistic," said Ingold.
"Whatever their goals are in the future, work wise, playing wise they are going to be able to accomplish it. They will find a way to get through this adversity. "
Ingold played for Wisconsin from 2015-18. He scored 17 career touchdowns as a fullback.
