    Advice In Madison?

    Hi guys, new member here. My wife and I are traveling over to Madison tonight and meeting some friends for the game tomorrow. Never been in the area, and this is the first big 10 stadium I will have been at, besides Nebraska's, so I don't know what to expect at all. Just looking for any advice. I read the Wisconsin person's post about the big Halloween event going on- thanks for sharing on that! Any other advice? Bars to hit? Is there gonna be parking lots to tailgate in beforehand, or will we be better off just bar hopping? We want to have a good time but that Halloween event may look like more than we are looking for lol. Thanks in advance!

    Let's talk about Wisconsin

    With the recent talks of the East / West split, it got me thinking about our division mates up in Madison. There are a ton of questions that need to be asked about the current and future relationship between the rivalry with the Badgers. Where do we stand with Wisconsin? We have the past success, but the current state of their football program is superior to ours. They've been the conference champs for three years in a row now. We got blown out in our only game in Madison so far. We mounted a common 2012 Husker comeback and edged them under the lights of Memorial Stadium. We all know what happend next... They obviously have the upper hand right now. 2-1 with both Ws being blowouts, but that coach has moved on... Former Utah State head coach Gary Andersen is taking charge and trying to continue Wisconsin's success nationally and in the ever changing Big Ten Conference. Thoughts on the rivalry with the Badgers in the upcoming years?
  8. Question is straightforward. I'll start with mine: Michigan I despise everything about Michigan except for Denard Robinson (hard to root against him, he's humble with a million dollar smile). Perhaps it's the saying "We dislike most those who remind us of ourselves". And as much as I hate to say it, Michigan is a mirror image of us. College football blue-blood, top 5 overall in victories, heismans and NC's etc., the Rich Rodriguez and Bill Callahan situations are eerily similar (offensive wizards who were brought down by subpar Defenses), similar block M to our Block N logo (just a blue version) to name a few. But it goes deeper than that (1997 comes to mind). Their fans are arrogant. In my interactions with Michigan fans online and in-person I get the sense that they thumb their nose at our tradition and contributions to college football. It seems like every Michigan fan I spoke to in 2010 had no real excitement or concern about us joining in the big ten, basically revealing their thoughts that we would be a push-over in conference play. Virtually every Michigan fan thinks that they would (not could) have beat us in 2012 if Robinson/Gardner played qb against us, and that they would have scored a touchdown on that drive that Robinson got hurt. I really thought that OSU and Michigan would be Texas and OU respectively before we joined. However, I find it is the complete opposite. Every single OSU fan I talked to in 2010 was genuinely excited to have us in the conference, acknowledging room for multiple powerhouse programs. One of my buddies, who is a Michigan fan, after the Michigan 2011 game (after which they truly felt they were 'back') posted a facebook status: "I remember when a man named Bo Pelini said he had no interest in the Michigan job. No one in Michigan wanted you anyways and today we showed you why" and it really set me off. I feel like we will meet OSU in the CCG on a semi-consistent basis for years to come and that those games will be hard fought to contribute to a respectful rivalry a la OU towards the end (I realize NU and OU hated each others guts in the 60s-90s). But I think the right to represent the legends in the CCG will almost always be decided by NU and Michigan, and consistently having these stakes for our games will make our feelings towards the Maize and Blue get downright nasty like Texas. Refute some of my points if you feel differently
  9. I feel kinda iffy about everyone automatically pegging us to go the Rose Bowl. Wisco is not going to lay down, and the first half of the game in Lincoln they were sticking it to us. The key was line play, as our D-line schooled their O-line (whole game) and our O-line wore their D-line & backers out (2nd half only). Has anyone noticed whether their line play has improved over the season? If so, it's not going to be the gimme that everyone thinks it is. And there's always the whole difficulty of beating someone twice in one year (Washington in 2010 comes to mind). If we do beat Wisco, then we have to sit through the whole possibility of a rematch against UCLA in the Rose Bowl...yikes.
  10. Guys--I keep seeing ourselves going around and around about the Rexcat, or putting more RBs in, or Taylor Martinez calling his own number too much in audible situations, or Taylor Martinez not checking down properly. I *can't* be the only person with a strong sense of déjà vu when I read these posts. Ultimately, there is only so much we can do running when teams are content to put 7+ in the box and go man-to-man in pass coverage. We *MUST* pass to keep defenses honest--it's football 101. It's why so many folks here griped and complained about Watson not going down the field enough--you have to stretch a defense to keep it honest and allow your running game to flourish. And while this year is different in that we have both an offensive coordinator that *is* calling the necessary passing plays to win and we have good young WRs that catch the ball and fight for YAC, we have maintained excellent RBs and TEs, just like last year. Hell, even our O-Line is progressing, despite its youth, and looks to be a stout and hardy group in the years to come. We're getting close to getting a 'pipeline' back in Lincoln. The *only* thing that has not progressed since last year on offense is Martinez, folks--we've improved or maintained at all other positions (including OC), but we've effectively regressed or stagnated at QB. As Yogi Berra said, "It's Deja Vu all over again." And if Bo isn't willing to make the necessary changes and start putting in a competent run/pass threat at QB, then we may as well search for our old 2010 threads, dust them off, replace Texas, Texas A&M, Baylor, and Oklahoma State with the likes of Ohio State, Michigan State, Minnesota, and Michigan, and be done with this season. I would honestly rather we make the necessary changes, especially now against a weak tOSU and going into a bye week to face underwhelming Minnesota and Michigan State teams to get whomever that needs to be at QB the necessary reps to make them comfortable and avoid another Cody Green problem like last year. Otherwise, when we play Wisconsin for the Big 10 title (and I still believe that we will win our division), the Fox Sports announcers are going to be pulling out the Yogi Berra quote early and often, and deservedly so.
