Sigh of relief!...The Badgers dominated the whole game except Miami's first and second to last posession's. In sports I always think how dissapointing it is to go a whole season of practice, lifting, and hype and then to go out and stink it up like that it's just taking your moral away.

I don't want to say this cause it is going to jinx the badgers but...the future is VERY bright IMO...lot of young guys shining even tonight...get back Taylor and Borland...our LB's are goin to be SICK...hopefully Clay is around for 4 years...Tolzien and then you have Phillips if he develops...young WR's...I'm looking forward to the next few years...

BUT...whenever we put high expectations on the Badgers...they seem to always crumble...so hopefully come next football season we all forget about this

We all know what happened the Badger football team had high expectations. They struggled to beat Cal-Poly.

Outside of the first few minutes and the "prevent winning" defense and botched onside recovery, UW dominated this game.

For the last few weeks, I've asked quite a few people, "why is Miami ranked #15?"

No one could give me an answer, I think we found out why tonight.

I agree. It's not like the Badgers even played that great of game either and they basically totally dominated. The defense did play well but the game could have easily been much more lopsided.

Well I only saw the 2nd half but yes the Badgers played great despite a few missed opportunities in the red zone such as the Garrett Graham fumble (he redeemed himself for it though soon after) but all things considered Wisconsin came out with the win and finished the season at 10-3. Now yes some could say that this should have been more like a 12-1 or maybe even a 13-0 season (depending on the Bowl game we would have played had we not lost to Ohio State or Northwestern) but still though, this team made a great turnaround from our slight hiccup we had last season. And no I will not blast the Bielema/Clay haters. Everyone makes a mistake sometimes but anyway I'm just glad that the Badgers exceeded my expectations this season and look to be pretty strong next season.

Yet another example of the prevent defense strategy not working.

Is it just me, or did it seem that the refs seemed to look for calls against Wisconsin, but looked the other way for Miami? There were several holding calls against Miami that never got called.


It isn't just you. On the opening kickoff, there is a very obvious block in the back by a Miami player on a Badger on about the 50 yrd line, towards the bottom of the screen ( if you happen to see the replay again). Also, IMO, the long pass from Tolzien to Toon along the far sideline was complete. I believe, based on the replays, that Toon had one foot IN BOUNDS, when he CAUGHT the ball, with control, which is all you need in college football. If you see the replay, you will notice the overweight referee, who made the call, trailing the play by about 10-15 yards. Since he ruled incomplete, the evidence must be IRREFUTABLE to overturn the call on the field. They got it wrong. Bad call.

I completely agree with the Toon catch. He clearly caught it in bounds yet the ref ruled it incomplete and the review official didn't even want to challenge it.

Watching Sportscenter was gross this morning. Miami got 70% of the talk time when they went through the game. What a joke.

Okay, where should they have been ranked? And I am asking where they should have been ranked before the Champs Bowl. Behind them in the rankings are BYU, Pitt, WVU, Stanford, Neb, Ok St., Az, Utah, then the Badgers. who should have been ranked above Miami before this game? Would you feel better if they had been 18th? 20th? Out of the rankings? To move Miami down, someone has to come up. The reason no one answered your question is possibly because there is no one to move up. This was a good win.

I'm pretty sure 70 % is being generous too, cause they showed Clay's big run and then his TD run and the fumble we caused... that's all they showed in a long highlight... such a joke! But would you expect otherwise from ESPN? It pissed me off too but all I care about is that Wisconsin completely dominated that game!!! And have a great future, with Clay and Ball for the next two years, that should be a huge 1-2 punch for Wisconsin!

Lol, there were 9 total penalties in this game. 6 on Wisconsin and 3 for Miami. It's not like Miami's offense was on the field a ton either as Miami had the ball about 21 mintutes to Wisconsin's 39 minutes.

And most of Wisconsin's penalties were late in the game.
