Former Badger and current San Francisco 49ers' quarterback Scott Tolzien joined the Mike Heller Show Tuesday.
Tolzien talked about what it's been like this year to backup Colin Kaepernick and Alex Smith, and how the transition went from Smith being the starter to Kaepernick. "It was a little bit awkward there for a few weeks... but it didn't change what was going on in our meeting rooms... As a young guy, I learned a lot."
Tolzien also talked about what he sees from Kaepernick "behind closed doors" that makes him successful. "In a lot of ways I'm not surprised what he is doing on game day because I have been able to see him on the practice field... in the weight room... in the meeting room. He doesn't flinch, he's worked hard for this."
Tolzien, having taken the Badgers to the Rose Bowl in the 2010-2011 season, talked about the Badgers' football team's most recent lost. "(The loss) shouldn't take away from everything those guys played through and fought through."
