Did they really just call Neb's d-linement 'two-gap type guys'? Sometimes I wonder if commentators know anything about football.
Wisconsin vs Nebraska / Night Games Open Thread:
Momentum meter swings to Nebraska. I really hope UW can pull this out so I don't have to cheer for Ohio for two weeks in a row.
Is UW capable of putting a DB within 10 yards of a receiver off the LOS?
Wisky is falling apart. Gotta hold the line.
Oh hey, UW figured out they're allowed to be within 5 yards of a Neb receiver. Good for them.
Nebrasksa and Wisconsin's new Adidas uniforms are really something to talk about. Last year, when watching this game, it was difficult to tell each team apart. Both featured strictly red and white in their uniforms, a boring combination IMO. In addition, they both featured two stripes along side the pants and shoulder pads. Even the letters on the helmets looked similar to each other.
In order to solve this aesthetic crisis, Adidas deccided to incorporate black into Nebraska's unis, and gave Wisconsin red above the shoulder pads and a different W. Nebraska's black helmet looks sharp; however, it clashes with the red pants and jerseys. A black pant would compliment the black helmet well. Having too much black though could upset the Nebraska tradidtionalists who are used to seeing the regular red and white on Saturdays.
In Wisconsin's case the jersey looks nice, with the exception that the W is oversied and unintimidating. The block W, like the block M, brings more to the table and looks less elementary. In conclusion, I applaud Adidas's attempt to eliminate the homogenous apperances of these two teams and give them more of an identity. A few adjustments here and there can go a long way in improving these teams normally below average uniforms.
On a side note, Nebraska and Wisconsin need to returf their fields. Their paint is so worn down that the red has turned into a purplish brown. I understand not every program has the luxuries that Michigan has, but these turfs are brutal IMHO.
Sounds like you spent all of wifey day clothes shopping.
Good lord, what in the hell has happened to UW's line this season?
Mississippi is toast. Feel free to tune in to Arizona or Oregon instead.
Maybe UW can re-hire their fired OL coach?
Good god, what is wrong with Wiscy's O-Line? You'd think coaching change shouldn't have that much of a negative effect on a line that is usually stocked with NFL talent.
RR's field goal kicker is now 4/9 on the year with a long of 42. Down 10-0 2Q.
That's not shocking at all
Jesus, bad bad bad tackling. And why does everyone else just stop when they think the runner's going to get tackled?
Watch out for them Beavers.
They're the first Arizona opponent this year that doesn't operate out of the spread.
C'mon Wisconsin O get it in gear. Put together one of those infuriatingly long grinding drives you're good. For the love of the game don't run it straight into the teeth of the defense. Try the edges.
Have you seen Ohio sell out their traditions twice today? Once for AT&T and some assholes on college FB tour, and again for dotting the i with Hyundai. Arizona likewise dispensing with all self-respect, so I guess that's a thing now.
Make dispensing with all self-respect into a tradition and no one can ever accuse you of selling it out.
Okie State is a complete and utter disappointment.
Jebus, Wisconsin is unraveling. Ball can't do anything but run into the backs of his linemen.
There's a reason why they are dead last in the conference in total offense, and 110 in the nation.
I don't want to say this games over, but Wisconsin has lost all it's momentum. Nebraska decided to finally field a defense, and Burkhead is looking like Burkhead.
UW needs to start taking a few more chances on D. Like maybe playing press coverage and bringing a blitz or stunt or two. And also, you know, re-learn how to breakdown and tackle.
How many Devin Smiths are there in this conference? Of course Musberger would think we have one of them.
Come on, Martinez, it's about time for you to gift the other team an INT...
Christ, can UW put any DB within 10 yards a receiver? Are they seriously trying to GERG themselves to a win?
texas got should be a fumble going the other way, what a crock of shit
I'm hoping Obrien can do to Braska what Rees did to us.
But I'm thinking I want them to win because we play them there also and I want them to lose at home to us, not Wisc.
I could go with that but why not take a half game lead?

Edit: That's it. I'll go with you.
Honestly, I think our trip to Nebraska will be very difficult, so I was hoping for some help from Wisconsin tonight.
I see the Leaders as a four-way race between Nebraska, MSU, Northwestern, and Michigan. Every loss of one of our main competitors for the Leaders lowers our magic number, whether it happens now or late in the season.
Epic, epic fail by Wisconsin.
That was just turrible. Run right into three blitzing LBs...wow...
I wonder if Ball regrets not bolting for the NFL now.
How do you not sneak it there? You've got a huge QB. Why run a slow-developing play that hasn't even worked all night?
It's not like they have Dominic Raiola at Center
Did they expect anything different from what had been happening all game? Why the fuck would you run it.
Good one BB.
what a game, what a game
Way to go cheesedicks.
There's less than 5 minutes in the third and Alabama is only winning by 13. Saban is eating someone's soul tonight.
A 2-2 Washington State team is giving Oregon a game. It's 23-19, Ducks, late in the second quarter.
MIke Leach is a character.
like Oregon and Bama that seem to do good in a very sneaky way rules wise, I don't know for sure, it's just something about programs like that , that reek filthy filth
Ergo, I root for them to suffer and lose, especially to lesser teams.
Zona run D is turrible.
70 yard punt and fumble recovery totally changed this game.
