Up to date prediction thread leaders:Trash-5, LCH-3, , Nono 2 TomOs/TJ-1. (though a tad late we'll give it to Nono based on accuracy).
So technically with NU winning two in a row, an IA loss at home to IL, a loss by MN @tOSU....and I think NU goes to the CC? We would hold all tiebreakers over IA, WI, NW and IL. Everyone would be 5-4. Is that really on the table? I mean seriously? That is how dysfunctional the West is. And we certainly fit right in!
The sad thing is there's no reason with this defense that we shouldn't be 7-3. IA is nearly exactly the same yet does the intelligent things to win extremely tight games. Not suddenly "be aggressive" with a team that then solidifies why we are dead last in possibly the world in turnovers. Sigh.
Good news? We get another bad team (surprise)! Rumors of a poor locker room dynamic has leaked badly. Badger fans have hit that disgust button fearful of where the WI program is going under Fickle. Everyone wondering why they are trying to be something they aren't with the wrong personnel. Sound familiar? Remember the Cally and beyond!
WI has their starting QB back. Allen is getting more healthy. We have some turnover prone QB starting and an OC ready to spread it around lol. Would I be completely surprised if we won this game? Nah, not really. Unfortunately the comments after last week by Rhule are NOT what I was hoping to hear. Playing unintelligent offensive football needs to stop and wins can be had. Wishing myself wrong....
NU 16 WI 19
