  1. It sounds like the Husker Marching Band is making the trip up to Madison to march for the game. May not seem like a big deal to you all, but Camp Randall hasn't had another marching band touch its field for 35+ years. They stopped coming when the reputation of the Wisconsin student section began to precede itself.
  2. Hello Huskers, Just stopping by to see who is all making the journey to Madison next weekend! I'll be driving down from Minneapolis to catch the game with my family: it will be my first time getting down to Camp Randall this year. I figured this night game will be a great atmosphere, and I know NU will bring a loyal contingent regardless of the growing pains of your team. Make no mistake: No sane Badger fan will be sleeping on this game against Nebraska, especially after we got caught looking past the god damn Mormons. Looking forward to a fun-filled football weekend
  3. Hi Huskers, Congratulations on getting your man. Coach Frost is obviously the perfect man and perfect fit for you, and after all the years of tumult, it is just what the doctor ordered. Major props to AD Moos for navigating the process with the highest of class, and for letting Coach Frost finish his season with his team at UCF who clearly loved him dearly. Speaking for me, and as a Badger fan who loves college football and the Big Ten Conference, I can say that I am very much looking forward to the return of Nebraska, sooner rather than later. I'm looking even more for
  4. What do you mean? They are extremely exciting and worth watching already!
  5. Seriously though! We did the same thing to the Gophers years ago when we gave them Joel Maturi. Joel did marvelous work for Wisconsin Athletics while he was the AD at Minn.
  6. ...Actually, I live in the Twin Cities, but let's roll with it. I wanted to drop by to say good luck this weekend as our teams meet to decide who will (probably) win the Big Ten West. It's always an honor and a thrill to watch Nebraska and Wisconsin play, and while your fellow conference brethren may tease you from time to time, all of us know that it's ALWAYS a big deal to play the Huskers. It's a big game, the fans are excited about it, and I'm positive that the players on both sides are as hyped for this matchup as any. It's no secret that Wisconsin Football was syst
  7. Northwestern was a tough game. They are 2-2 with the losses being on the road to WI and Duke. We may not have slayed a dragon yet, but Nebraska hasn't exactly either. Do I think that WI will win by 10+? No way!
  8. I think you all tried to do a b******* for your first visit to Madison in 2011 as well. That was the game where the Nebraska media was reporting that 30-40-50% of Camp Randall was going to be "taken over" by invading Nebraska fans. It was also the Russell Wilson game. Damn that was fun!
  9. I don't understand fans like you. Many Minnesota fans feels similarly. How could you be upset about having OSU on the home schedule? Wouldn't you rather watch the Corn Huskers play a primetime game against a highly visible opponent than watch another snoozefest game against Rutgers? If Nebraska is as great as we all believe it is (and I'm a Badger fan), then you ought to embrace opportunities to play big-time opponents year in and year out. Don't be like Gopher fans who hope and pray their schedule gets filled with the Rutgers and Indianas of the world so they can back into a mid-m
  10. Quite right. I don't want to speak for all Wisconsin fans, but the so-called rivalry between Minnesota and Wisconsin has had an increasingly small significance for Badger fans. It's always nice to beat annoying little brother (as I'm sure it was nice to beat your border rivals Kansas and Kansas State every year) but I think younger generations of Badger fans would very much get on board with replacing that dying end-of-the-year rivalry with an Iowa or even Nebraska matchup. The older generations of Badger fans will balk at replacing Minnesota as a rival, but it's just been so bo
  11. Wisconsin has always been, and always will be: party and friends first, football game second. You probably noticed that the student section doesn't completely fill in until around half time because of this. As other posters have alluded, it is a legacy of the many lean years Badger fans endured before 1993. It's who we are.
  12. Our coaches are great friends and, from my trip to Lincoln, as well as from my interactions with Huskers that I've met in Madison and Indianapolis, I think we are kindred fans as well. We both love Red and we both love football! We also love having you in the Big Ten, it's perfect that we are in the same Big Ten West division and get to play each other every year. Looking forward to tonight's spectacle! On, Wisconsin! -Badger
  13. Not good. Our first 6 conference games are: at Michigan State at Michigan Ohio State at Iowa Nebraska at Northwestern I will be jumping for joy if we manage to emerge from that stretch having won half of the games. After that, we get to end the season with Illinois, @Purdue, and Minnesota at home. I would think that going 7-5 sounds about right with 8-4 being possible if our team is as decently solid as is being reported. In seasons like this, where things look bleak, my one expectation is that we continue to beat Minnesota on Senior Day, and if we do, this year will exten
