The inspiration for my wallpaper this week is a little bit out of left field. Some of you may be aware that Wisconsin once tried to steal the "Mitten State" slogan from Michigan. In the winter of 2011, a Wisconsin tourism campaign used the image of a mitten stretched in the shape of Wisconsin. Some Michiganders were outraged, but most thought it was hilarious.
This is not what a mitten looks like. The "thumb" is an incredibly generous interpretation of what the state actually looks like. I don't want to see the hand that fits in that mitten.
My takeaway from the situation was that Wisconsinites aren't very good at drawing hands. In fact, maybe people from Wisconin just aren't good at drawing in general. So what would it look like if the head coaches from Wisconsin and Michigan were asked to draw their respective mascots? See for yourself below.
Let's get to know our upcoming opponent the Wisconsin Badgers!

Next week is setting up to be a really BIG game for us.
1000 upvotes to the person that posts Dantonio's postgame presser... delicious.
Another week of football, another slate of games that prove that matchups are weird and sports are hard.
Right now we've got:
Georgia State 17, Wisconsin 13 in the fourth quarter
Iowa 21, North Dakota 14 (it was tied in the 3rd quarter)
Tennessee 14, Ohio 12 in the third quarter
Penn State 24, Temple 17 in the late third quarter
Slightly different, but FSU losing a conference game by 32 points.
LSU's RG Josh Boutte was suspended by Les Miles for 1 game for his vicious, late cheap shot on Wisconsin CB D'Cota Dixon. That game is against Jacksonville State. Les defended Boutte saying it was out of character and that Boutte believed the play was still live, which I totally believe. /s
For those that didn't see the hit, here is the link:
Boutte is 6'5", 346 lbs and Dixon is 5'10", 203 lbs. This could've done a lot of damage, but thankfully didn't.
This brings me to my question: What punishment does Boutte actually deserve?
Team Cook setback in Draftageddon? Redraft time?
