Wisconsin Injury Report Released

Submitted by Bambi on November 13th, 2017 at 6:10 PM

Link to the report.

I posted their report last week here. Updates of note in the past week:

- LB Chris Orr is still out, as well as WRs Jazz Peavy and George Rushing.

- Safety D'Cota Dixon is questionable. He missed last week against Iowa (dressed and warmed up but was not dressed for the game). He played 2 weeks ago against Indiana but missed the week prior against Illinois.

- Starting Center Tyler Biadasz is questionable as well. He's been a solid OL as a freshman for them this year. He was injured in the first half and missed the rest of the game.

I don't think that Gary is hurt enough to miss time. I think the missed time at the end of the game was just a precautionary measure. Why put him out there when we didn't NEED him? Shoulder injuries don't usually see a whole lot of missed time unless you are a QB.

Best teams to add (as long as we are talking things that will never happen): Notre Dame and West Virginia (even better would be add Pitt and expel Buttgers). Divide up into the

Appalachia Division:

Penn State

West Virginia

Maryland

Pittgers

Midwest Division:

Michigan

Ohio State

Notre Dame

Michigan State

Prairie Division:

Northwestern

Illinois

Indiana

Purdue

Plains Division:

Wisconsin

Minnesota

Iowa

Nebraska

 

Could do it NFL-style where each division draws one other division to play every year, or could hold some random draw ceremony in the spring of each year to fill in each team's 4 conference games randomly.

Yeah, I agree the West is not good this year and hasn't been that great outside of UW recently except for 2015 when Iowa went undefeated. I thought the initial comment was asking how Wisconsin is always tough, and the response was to avoid Michigan, PSU, and OSU. I was simply pointing out that we played all three last year and were still top 10. And of course that we're going to play another one of that group in a couple weeks.

Maybe he was just asking about this year.

PJ Hill was essentially the college version of The Bus. Hell, everyone thought he would be the next Jerome Bettis. As Michigan  running backs this past decade will show, even when you have a hole doesn't mean the RB will always take it.

That's what happens when you recruit for the same system regardless of coach for the last 500 years or so, and indeed, it is one of the reasons I still to this day do NOT understand why Gary Anderson left that job. It's about as close to having it made in terms on some levels as you can get because this script writes itself almost every single year in Madison.

Having a second year player at guard is a lot different than a center. Not to say second year players can not be good at center but you typically don't want one playing there unless you have too or he is a future sure fire early round draft pick.

He was, until Cephus became our best WR, then of course he got hurt. And our best LB hasn't played all year either. Starting safety has missed significant time (Dixon), another key LB has missed the whole year (Baun). All in we're going to have 5-6 guys who would have been week 1 starters out for this one. The backups on defense have come in and played their asses off though. Same could be said for the WRs.
