Night Games Open Thread 9/28
If they can't run they can't move the ball.
Wisconsin does have 210 passing yards and two passing TDs, all accumulated in the first half.
Wisconsin is not about winning this game.
Brax sure has lost a step in the run game.
Wisconsin's game plan for tonight's game....
Borland with a pretty mean hit there to keep OSU out of the end zone.
Edit: Lol, jk.
OSU is going to own the Big Ten for the next 10 years. I hate to say it but we don't stand a chance . If you thought Jim owned us Urbz is going to kill us every year. It sucks being a U of M fan. Bring back cooper.
Jesus man - overreact much?
Go away troll
I'm not a troll look at my past posts. I'm drunk and this is OSU most difficult game till they come to Ann Arbor. I'm just drunk and punished that for all the bullshit they went through they lost Jim and gained Urbz.
Sorry it was a rant but re-reading it I did look like a troll.
Northwestern is not a pushover.
I believe you. Either that or you write the BEST "fake drunk" prose ever.
Look I didn't mean to stir the pot, I have been at a wedding all night, and been drinking pretty heavily so watching this game just pisses me off. I just want karma to hit some one other then myself... Is that to much to ask. Fuck I hate osu
The next 2 years OSU will remain the class of the conference. By 2015 UM's recruiting of 2012-2014 will kick in and if the recruiting ranks mean anything AND the coaching staff is on par with OSU's the two teams talent bases should be quite equal. If UM is not competitive (by competitive I don't mean "wow UM really needs to play its best to hang with OSU" but a 50/50 game) with OSU in the 2015-2016 season, it will be time to find a new coach. But until then just hang in there and realize the 2010/2011 classes were below par for UM standard and hence we have issues to work through. We have a very young team and it's going to take time.
Holy crap, that post was serious?
Fair enough. I don't look at this Ohio team as unbeatable though. We get them at home and we have more talent top to bottom than Wiscy, who would be right there with Ohio if they weren't playing so dumb. if Gardner can get his confidence back, that is
^. OSU has flaws of their own. No reason to think we can't hang with these guys.
Well okay then
Eh, I think they still have the superior athlete but that gap will get smaller and smaller with UM and osu. I think there will be some great battles year in year out starting soon
Ummm...maybe you should go back posting on Bucknuts
Just like he 'killed' our 8-4 team by a whole 5 points last year?
They brought back Cooper tonight to honor the '93 team. There, feel better?
Nobody thought we would beat their '93 team either. But we smoked 'em in A2.
There's really little reason to believe that at this point. We're recruiting just as well as OSU and we've got a better defensive staff than they have. Just because an unproven OSU is beating an unproven Wisconsin, doesn't mean they're going to destroy everyone forever
Yes....yes it does.
Just ask Hoek. He may be drunk but he's pretty certain that Buckalopolis is upon us.
Good to see someone's found the moonshine tonight.
Looked like an o linemen way down field
I think we're all seeing that Wiscy's offensive output so far this season may have something to do with the competition. I know OSU is doing well defensively, but this offense relies so heavily on running downhill, and when that isn't the case I don't know if they have a second gear.
I mean, how is that different than OSUs offense? You think they would be as effective I'd they couldn't run the ball? Everything except the air raid needs some running production to be successful. I think if OSU had to rely on Miller's arm, they would have trouble as well.
But I think the difference is that Miller can create with his arm or his legs, while Stave is really just an average thrower with very limited mobility. Every team needs to have some form of a running game as well as a passing one, but Wiscy has always struck me as a squad that is immensely better with a lead and just running at you 40-50 times a game. You take that away and ask them to throw the ball, I'm not sure they can do much with it. Compare that to OSU, who really can stretch the field at times even with a passer with some accuracy issues.
Come on Badgers get mad. This is your chance. No more mistakes. Just play.
Hello: Wisky run game.
Where ya' been?
Gallon has to be drooling at the thought of burning Roby like this
I hope our receivers and Borges are watching Roby. He's living a nightmare.
Only took Oregon 1:33 to score against Cal. Over / under on Oregon's point total in the first half?
I'll take the over. I'm thinking 52.
TD Wisconsin. They keep it a game with plenty left in the 4th quarter
Alright need a stop now wiscy.
Lacks effort. 2/10. Would not recruit.
love him. Owning Roby tonight
I'd love to see Gallon get 1x1 coverage from Ohio
constant PI finally getting called.
Man, if only that freshman DB held on to that pick before the half.
Or if they hadn't committed an illegal procedure when they recovered the muffled fumble...
or if they hadn't missed a chip shot field goal
I'll take a nice 3 and out by the OSU offense, or a defensive score.
This game (Wisc-Ohio) isn't over yet. If Wisc can avoid shooting itself in the foot, it can still win this.
