Niko Porikos grew up in an NTDP billet home. Cool story.
OT: Wisky vs. UNLV
and am on record that Bret Bielma should have a piano dropped on his head.
But, this Wisco team looks very beatable. Power running game looks good, but other pieces still seem meh.
For some reason Wisconsin has always annoyed me. I'm finding it hard to support my conference comrades. I think it has to do with the fact they take pride in the fact they're utter dicks to visiting fans.
I don't mind Wisconsin. There are some times UofM traditionally matches up well with, and Wisconsin is one (see 2nd biggest comeback in UM history). Even through the Ron Dayne years when no one else could stop them, UofM always had their number.
That was always part of the formula for their Rose Bowl teams. Lose to Michigan and avoid playing Ohio State or another top team in the conference.
Wisky always struggles early, don't they?
They always seem to play down to their competition. They have done this against Fresno the past few years (who by the way is beating Cincy right now). They should control the 2nd half with their ground game, but you never know.
I was in vegas just a couple of years ago when Wiscky traveled to play UNLV. bright red clad drunkards all over the casinos.My interactions with UW fans on this trip is the reason I don't hate them. Does the UW AD forego the return home game so as to not miss out on an opportunity for their fans to go to Vegas and wreak havoc?
have been giving Wisky fits for years.
Should be noted that the yardage at halftime was 279-12 for the Badgers.
Two bad plays, but besides that Wisco has been utterly dominating.
Yes, Wisconsin is looking about the same as always. Power run game featuring a somewhat overweight yet highly effective running back, a QB that appears to be a less coordinated version of John Navarre and a defense that makes up for what it lacks in skill by being well coached and prone to delivering crushing hits.
Personally I love when Wisconsin sends up playing a SEC "speed" team in a bowl game and the fat running back spends the game bulldozing his way down the field for a 150 yard game.
Wisconsin is slow, but the earth is patient.
Wisconsin's OL is seriously good, but we knew this already. From what I saw, if we can run the zone read well, we can gain at least 5 yards per down. Plus UNLV doesn't have dilithium.
