This fall, University of Wisconsin running back Montee Ball is poised to be one of the best players in college football. But, he's not thinking about that right now. Instead, he's currently trying to recover from a vicious beating that took place early this morning when he was the victim of an "unprovoked attack." According to a police report (peep the thumbs to take a look at it), Ball was walking down the street in Madison, Wisc. at around 2:15AM today when five men attacked him, knocked him to the ground, and kicked him repeatedly. It was so bad that he needed to be rushed to the hospital with head injuries.

The suspects got away and are still at large. But, fortunately, Ball was treated and released from the hospital shortly after the event.

"Montee has been released from the hospital and is under the care and supervision of our sports medicine staff," Wisconsin head coach Bret Bielema said a little while ago. "We will continue to evaluate him as we approach the start of fall camp this weekend. I do expect Montee to make a full recovery."

Best wishes on making that full recovery.
