Weather forecast is calling for temps in the 50's, rain and very windy.

Indiana comes in with the #1-ranked passing game in the Big 10 and averaging 525 yds per game in total offense.

DB's Dez Southward, Darius Hillary, Peniel Jean and Sojurn Shelton, better be alert, focused and have done their homework.

I assume UW defensive coordinator Dave Arranda will will have disguied blitzes coming from everywhere ... look for about 6-8 QB sacks by the Badger defense ... a couple of corresponding INT's would be nice too.

A big day possibly for WR Jared Abbrederis on offense ... or are the Badgers going to wait and surprise Minnesota next week with an aerial attack?

For all the Joel Stave bashers out there (ahem, Reberns & Co.), here are a few stats you may want to digest: Stave is 2nd in the Big 10 with 16 TD passes, trailing only Indiana's Nate Sudfield who has 19. Stave is 28 of 29 in the red zone (71.8 completion %), with 11 TD's, 0 INT's and a red zone passing efficiency rating of .202, which ranks 8th in the country.

I think it's fair to say all is not doom & gloom re Stave, as some of you guys would like to believe and have others believe. [smooch]

Hey! I take offense to being bolded in your little narrative!

My biggest problem with Joel has shown its ugly head in this game again. He takes far too long in the pocket to deliver the pass. And when he finally decides to throw the ball, his throwing motion seems like an eternity. This may not be a problem against Indiana, but a real defense will start to hit home and there will be many MANY problems.

For someone who's been consistently vocal & outspoken on the subject of Joel Stave the entire season, I would think you'd have thicker skin than to "take offense to being bolded in my little narrative."

The way I see it, if you're going to state your opinion on a specific topic, you better be able to handle the heat (rebuttal) that comes from someone (myself) who doesn't necessarily agree with all or part of your position on said topic.

BTW, here's another performance stat pertaining to Joel Stave: With 16 starts now under his belt, only Russell Wilson (72.8) and Scott Tolzien (68.1) have higher career completion %'s than Stave (224 of 363, 61.7%), among all former Badger QB's (minimum 300 career passing attemps).


This was merely a joking, sarcastic statement. Meant no harm from it. Was trying to implement a moment of levity before making my point. Was never made to be defensive as i wasnt at the time nor now.

I misunderstood your intentions. I apologize. In hindsight, I probably shouldn't have singled you out like I did. That's part of the as_hole in me that surfaces from time to time. We're cool, Reberns .... Peace!

That last play basically illustrated my last post. O-Line gets manhandled. Stave way too slow in reacting to the pressure. It's like he doesn't feel it until they're hitting him. Badgers' offense has been stifled by the Indiana D since the two TDs. Kind of embarrassing.

Stave admits that and elaborates about it in the link provided in my earlier post (#6, on this thread).

Personally, I prefer a QB who has can hang in the pocket (call it poise, ignorance, aloofness or whatever you want) compared to a QB like former Badger Brooks Bollinger who had the happiest feet this side of the penguin movie by the same name. Bollinger would pull the ball down and start scrambling at the slightest hint of the opponent's jersey color. Used to drive me frickin' crazy (which is a relatively short trip under normal circumstances)!

Here's the link again:

Only problem with that in this case is that Stave seems a little more "in his element" when he gets out of pocket.

IMO, Indiana's outer shell helmet design was about as horrendous as anything I've seen since Maryland debuted their 4-color hemet 2 seasons ago. []

Not quite sure what to make of Northwestern's Easy Rider/Peter Fonda patriotic hemet shell design either ....
