Our QB situation this year is appalling...it's not like there was a sudden injury or early graduation that left the team shorthanded. I can't believe he redshirted Curt Phillips, unless it was the kid's choice.

He needs


And like everyone else im pretty sure BB was expecting Everidge to turn out better than he was, similar to the way 3 other badger quarterbacks that recently turned out as first year senior starters. Unfortunately I dont think any of those 3 would have been as successful behind this years line either.

Do you know the reason the time out was called against MSU? Its called playing the numbers and against that kicker the numbers said a timeout made sense.

I totally agree with your point about the Indiana game but think its laughable that you find that a fireable offense???

Funny how noone really gave a rats ass about BB's social life when he was having 2 great years and when he was helping Barry win. Fucking phonies...

I think the absolute beating Wisconsin will take at the hands of Florida State will be a fine way to end his reign, don't you?

No. It won't be the end of his reign.

And, if you define "absolute beating" as 17-10, then yeah, they'll get an absolute beating.

But they're not going to can him after this season, even if they lose 45-0 in the bowl game.

If he puts his crank in a hot dog bun and serves it to some ladies a la "Bachelor Party" he might get fired.

Good call on the whole "absolute beating" thing. I still don't see him getting the boot just yet though.

All evidence has been destroyed by the secret society that hides these sorts of things. Oh and the LSM. Can't forget them.

He won't get the gate for at least another year, but if you had any doubt about what kind of pressure he's under, just read the coverage of the bowl game. Getting schooled like that means, at the very least, Bielema can't continue treating the media so arrogantly. One line from his post-game presser in particular struck me as going over like a lead balloon.

In defending his decision to run the five wide-out gadget play that ended with an underthrown lateral that Florida State returned for a 65-yard (?) touchdown, he said something like "If that play had worked, everyone would have thought it was a good formation."

Um, except that they wouldn't because the fans and reporters in this state know a lot more about football than Bielema has ever given them credit for. The quote clearly illustrated Bielema's self conscious state of mind, wherein he feels the press is always out to get him and that fans always think they know better than he does. Well, that's often the case but the coach has to carry himself with the confidence that it doesn't bother him. Bielema all too often makes it seem like he not only reads all the stories written about his team, but highlights passages where he gets criticized so he can think up good comebacks.

This is a fan base and press corps educated on football by Barry Alvarez and Dick Bennett who both said you'd better know who you are and work on executing the basics before "chucking it around the yard." If you're running it down your opponent's throat, which is what Wisco was doing at that point, then you keep on doing it. Nothing demoralizes an opponent more, which is what Wisconsin found out in the second half when FSU scored on a 17-play drive and they were as good as cooked.

Wisconsin has become a relevant football program by taking the air out of the ball when necessary and I can't think of a more necessary instance than playing a team with the speed of Florida State with inexperienced receivers and a suspect quarterback.

I think there are many "in the know" who have refused to spill the beans on Coach Barf Bulimia. Take John Roach's column in the January 2009 'Madison Magazine' for example:

"(Barry Alvarez) is probably pondering if his hand-picked successor can read and recruit talented players and staff. He's likely assessing whether Coach B2 is improving in his job. And he will evaluate the M word, as aptly dropped by Wisconsin State Journal columnist Tom Oates.

That M word being Maturity.

Does Bret have The Big M on and OFF (NOTE: emphasis added) the field? Has he grasped the fact that he is no longer a football player but a football coach? That his sideline decisions and behavior represent not just himself but his team's fortunes?

Does he understand that he gets paid a million bucks to exceed expectations, not just kinda meet them?

And most importantly, that the games young Bret Bielema commands are not just sporting contests but a celebration of community? And whether he likes it or not, on Saturday afternoons in the fall, he leads that community, which gathers around to support him by the tens of thousands each game?"

Tell me John Roach isn't "in the know."

Warning shots have now officially been fired across the bow of the S.S. Barf Bulimia. Will he veer away (not to be confused with Don Morton's offense) or will he just maintain his steady course toward destruction?

FS absolutely had it sniffed out. Sherer should've audibled to another play when he saw the way they were lined up defensively. Moffet and Nicholson both hawked the ball. A great defensive play.

PJ Hill is a Junior, right? Do you think he'll skip his Senior year and turn pro? What team & what round?

And who's gonna be the team that drafts Graham Gano? Is he a 1st rounder?

If he goes now, I don't see how he ends up as anything but a second-day pick, if not an undrafted free agent. The NFL is lousy with bulky backs. If Ron Dayne couldn't get an offer in '08, Hill isn't going anywhere in '09.

And who's gonna be the team that drafts Graham Gano? Is he a 1st rounder?


Wasn't Mike Sherman's decision to draft a punter one of the reasons he got the boot?

Things are looking up. According to Scout.com, we actually have 1 recruit in the Top 300(#193) for next year. Yippee!
