11/18/2017 - 5:41pm This was a carbon copy

of the hockey game last night. Michigan looked at least as good if not better than Wisconsin, had a bunch of early opportunities to score but couldn't, and then the game got away from them late.

11/09/2017 - 4:44pm UW Exhibition

I went to Wisconsin's exhitbition game against Northern Iowa. They started both halves cold, I think UNI had a 10-2 lead before UW went on a 20 point run or something. It was never really close after that, but UNI did cut the deficit to I think single digits early in the second half. 

Kobe King was the one player that stood out to me (in a positive way - they were also giving a lot of playing time to a backup center from Europe who looked really slow). I'm surprised to hear he was a 3-star, he looked the Badger's best player not named Ethan. Of course, it was an exhibtion against a UNI squad that isn't what it was a few years ago. But he is related to a member of the fab-five, so I'll give him the benefit of the doubt.

09/16/2017 - 9:15pm It is the expectation

but you don't want to bet the 50/50 plays, I guess. I'm not a gambler but I'd guess you want to look for teams Vegas is often wrong on and bet those. Vegas basically gets Michigan right, apparently.

Is good for the Badgers. He looked awesome live the last two weeks and now I can see a little better on TV he still looks like the real deal. That game in Camp Randall is going to be awesome.

05/05/2017 - 11:53am Why does Zach Smith have a logo?

Does everyone have a personal logo now? Do I need one?

03/21/2017 - 3:33pm We don't eat very much poutine

We prefer our cheese curds deep fried, thank you very much. Also, it's beer, brats, cheese. 

03/21/2017 - 3:15pm I disagree

Look at the success of Fumagalli, who wasn't a big recruit at all (#75 TE). Their offense is great for tight ends, they just haven't had a big talent there. They haven't had great QBs, so shorter passes to TEs are important. They run a ton and like to go big, so TEs see the field a lot. Play action to the TE seems like a classic badger play. 

11/19/2016 - 12:30am Well, he said poor man's. C

Well, he said poor man's. C Web was a VERY rich man's player. By which I mean rich enough to own an NBA team.

10/21/2016 - 4:26pm Yeah I'm currently watching

Yeah I'm currently watching netflix...

GO BADGERS

10/14/2016 - 2:46pm Oh wow I did not know that

It kills me that they call that a "lake". If it was a lake, you wouldn't be able to drain and renovate it. Plus here in Madison we have 4 real lakes (although 2 are pretty small themselves).

10/14/2016 - 11:11am Game Day Sign?

I'm planning on going to Game Day (my office is in a building about 50 yards away, so I can get there early in the morning and hang out). I'm torn between two signs: M (heart) W with a block M and flying W, or "Mirror lake is a drainage ditch". Thoughts on which is better?

Also, go Badgers.

10/07/2016 - 8:32pm 225 of which were #10 there.

225 of which were #10 there. Who's second? Henne?

10/02/2016 - 1:00am Well. Wisconsin has a bye so

Well. Wisconsin has a bye so there won't be much tailgating in Madison. My GF will out of town. There's a solid chance I sleep through the Rutgers game.

09/03/2016 - 5:12pm GOOOOOO BADGERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!

GOOOOOO BADGERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!

He's not very good. Riding the bench right now.

Flying to Austin for a bachelor party! It's going to be a good weekend.

07/12/2016 - 5:30pm I have now lived in Madison

I have now lived in Madison for 4 years, after 4 years of Ann Arbor. I know people here won't want to hear this, but I like living in Madison more than Ann Arbor. It's bigger without feeling bigger, so there's more to do, more choices of bars and restaurants, but doesn't feel more crowded or dirty.

07/06/2016 - 9:25am The Duck Blind!!!

The Madison Mallards (Northwoods League) have an all you can eat/drink section with a lot of local craft beer. It is a lot of fun. 

Unrelated, but if anyone is in western Virginia (not West Virginia) the Salem Red Sox (in the Roanoke area) are a lot of fun. I went once because tickets were something like $5 (Monday night) and won free tickets to another game playing bags (aka cornhole). Went on a Friday using the free tickets and it was a local wing contestest - $5 to be a "judge", which got you 15 wings, and that turned into all you can eat when there were left over wings.

04/10/2016 - 3:01pm The "Franklin doesn't scare

The "Franklin doesn't scare the SEC" part was pretty good.

He trolled the other commit post as well.

02/16/2016 - 7:10pm if everyone tweets at dakich

think they will change the camera angle?

 

02/13/2016 - 4:44pm Two more years

and he will be first on that list! I did not realize that. Very cool.

01/27/2016 - 11:24pm Yes. I will never not be

Yes. I will never not be happy with an 11 point win. Even if it's to NJIT to name a random school.

01/27/2016 - 11:22pm Win. I don't care what it

Win. I don't care what it look likes. The college game is high variance, just win. This isn't the 2012/2013 team, but it's a lot better than any team from 1999-2008.

01/02/2016 - 9:32am Not paying the faculty

Below our peer group in grad student stipend and prof. salary.

01/02/2016 - 9:29am NOOOOOOOOOOOOO

DAMMIT BARRY PAY THE COACHES

12/21/2015 - 3:28pm Oh man both of those sound

Oh man both of those sound like they were made up by Dave Barry.

JAKE "Tom Brady" RUDOCK.

11/07/2015 - 5:32pm This is one of those times

This is one of those times watching on ESPN or FOX would be nice, they'd have Pereira or someone like that to explain.

11/07/2015 - 11:09am Wisconsin has a statue of

Wisconsin has a statue of Barry, and he's still the AD. I like to think he goes to Camp Randall and stands next to it all the time.

11/02/2015 - 11:09pm If I had started Flacco I

If I had started Flacco I would have won by 15. I started Luck.

10/26/2015 - 11:58pm The guy at pride of Detroit

The guy at pride of Detroit at least seems to think it is because of a switch to zone blocking. I'm inclined to believe him based off the draft profiles and past performance of the o line. They are a bunch of guys built for blocking power, not quick enough for zone blocking. That doesn't explain the blown pass protections, though.

10/24/2015 - 9:42am They didn't make the playoffs

They didn't make the playoffs with Joique? Wow. Or did he not go to BH? I know he is from there.

09/25/2015 - 12:27pm I still think

Minnesota-Duluth and Nebraska-Omaha make the most sense as affiliate members for hockey.

09/22/2015 - 9:47am Are the radio shows still

Are the radio shows still going to go up as podcasts?

08/20/2015 - 9:07pm Crap.

Crap.

07/17/2015 - 7:40pm I still say

"suburbs of Detroit" to people in Wisconsin. Randomly met someone from Wisconsin who knew where Novi was.

06/05/2015 - 6:06pm Too early for the drinking thread?

Only if you don't believe in your self. 

05/20/2015 - 3:05pm Of the Griffins. Blashill is

Of the Griffins. Blashill is likely the next Red Wings coach.

05/20/2015 - 1:23pm It has to go all the way

to Grand Rapids! Such a long flight. 

05/15/2015 - 4:55pm My uncle

still hates Stanford because of their band at the '72 Rose Bowl. He played in the Michigan band at the time. He will still complain about Stanford's band goofing off. 

04/24/2015 - 11:31am I live in a small apartment

with thin walls. I didn't want my neighbors to freak out on fall Saturdays (or last night when the Wings blew it) when they heard loud screaming. So, my WiFi name is:

"theyellingisaboutsports"

04/05/2015 - 3:16am So I'm pretty happy. State

So I'm pretty happy. State street was crazy.

03/06/2015 - 6:11pm Oh man I need to resist

Oh man I need to resist making a joke about how much taller Gentry is and ceilings.
