|3 weeks 3 days ago||Some thoughts....||
I posted in another thread that I would not be surprised to see CU win the PAC12 south. Mainly because they are the only team that actaully plays defense; don't play Washington and have Utah at home. Teams will score on them, but they are still ranked 18th in Total Defense.
Michigan put 45 on the board against them and 51 on UCF (who is 19th in total defense). While I do believe that Wisconsin has a better defense (currently 12th right behind us), they will not completely shut down our offense. They have not faced an offense like our (LSU - nope; Georgia St - nope; Akron - nope; MSU - nope)
Their pace of play also dictates their performance, I am pretty sure the in FFFF we will see that Wisconsin plays at a snails pace to shorten the game.
We get up on them by a couple of scores, that will start to make things uncomfortable for them.
Their offense is only averaging 3.94 yards per carry (not adjusted for sacks) and they are 75th overall. Their offense relies on ball control sustained drives..... Remind me again, who leads the nation in defensive 3rd down eff.?
I expect this to be a methodical game where our defense contains their offense and we win the specical teams battle (kick and punt return yardage) and just start methodically putting up points and pull away.
The only way they stay in the game is if we lose the turnover battle by more the -2.....
All data points are from NCAA stats page.....

Sparty's O looked good only against ND "wholly" Defense.....
I'll see myself out now.......
|3 weeks 5 days ago||Wisconsin accomplished what many have not been able to||
They got Mark Dantonio to give up on the run game. Only 2.7 yards per carry and the fell too far behind. I expect a similar result on October 29th. Stop the run and force O'Connor to throw..........
|3 weeks 5 days ago||We are all entitled to our opinions||
But I agree, I think they will win the PAC-12 South. They have Utah and UCLA in Boulder, they do not play Washington. No one in the South looks very impressive and what they showed last week here was enough to see that they can move the ball and score. Plus they have enough players on D to at least slow down the opposition.
When this season is over with, it will be Michigan's win over Colorado that will be viewed as a bigger triumph compare to Sparty's win over LOL ND.
I am leaning more towards they go 7-2 in the PAC 12 South....
@ Oregon - W 41-38
10/1 - vs Oregon St - win
10/8 - @USC - lose but I would not be surprised if they win this one...
10/15 - ASU - win
10/22 - @ Stanford - Loss
11/3 - UCLA - win
11/12 - @ Arizona - win
11/19 - WASSU - win
11/26 - Utah - win
I can see where UCLA and Utah will be challenging, but they have both of them at home
|7 weeks 20 hours ago||So, WD are you the Kitten or the Dog?||
Love the .gif..........
|7 weeks 20 hours ago||Aside from the sheer beauty of that play||
I love the fact that the sideline judge made a call right away. Today that call would have been under 10 minutes of "reply" reivew. just takes away from the game.....

Move along, ESPN being ESPN. Plenty of hot air with no real content......

I grew up in Rudgate. My Mom and sister still live there (now south of there off Oakland Dr). I was glad to hear from my family and friends are safe. Very sick to my stomach.

Let the POSBANG continue!!!!!
|46 weeks 20 hours ago||As reference||
I called the Durkin hire back earlier this year because I work with someone who knows Durkin. What is interesting is the same co-worker (a Sparty alum) stopped by my desk on Oct 19th to troll. The last thing he said to me was "Oh and trust me, Durkin is as good as gone." Now I never followed up on that comment because the Sparty slappy is insufferable right now. But I find it interesting that he was so sure of himself back in October that Durkin was gone. With all this being stated I am choosing to look forward and move on.
