I don't think they'll win the Big Ten West. They'll lose to Penn State, and more than likely split between Northwestern and Purdue.

At least Iowa gets to be embarrassed in the Big Ten Championship Game instead of us.

3 road games left. At NW, PSU, and PU. Need to win two of them.

I agree, but I don't think they will. It's entirely possible that they won't win any of them. My best guess is that they'll beat Northwestern and go on to lose to the other two teams. I saw some of Purdue's beat down of Ohio State. They're for real.

At the beginning of the 2017-18 season I was thinking that Taiwan Deal wasn't a running back we could run to consistent victories and Hornibrook had yet to really prove himself so we were likely to have a bit of a down year. Probably a bowl game, but nothing special. The defense excelled, Jonathan Taylor emerged and The Badgers went undefeated until the Big Ten Championship game...

At the beginning of this year I was thinking with a top-notch O-line, arguably the best in the country, along with a future NFL running back and the return of a maturing Hornibrook, we had a legitimate shot at the playoffs. It's funny how these things pan out.

They'll at least get a minor bowl game. If it's in a city I'm interested in visiting, I'll probably go.

I'd go to San Fran. Jacksonville, not so much.

I'm actually pulling for the Pinstripe Bowl. Yeah, I'll be cold, but I will be in NYC.

Agree on Jacksonville. I went to the "World's Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party" there a few years ago. The stadium is a bit of a dump. The city is meh. And the traffic control getting to and out of the stadium area was atrocious.

Miami 21, Wisconsin 13. It's hard to beat an average team like Miami without a credible passing threat. And they wouldn't have had one even if Hornibrook was healthy.

Hornibrook beat them in last year's bowl game, but that was a team effort.

That was the best game of his career. Part of the problem this year, aside from his own performance, is that the receivers haven't been as good either. The offense really missed Fumagalli in particular.
This is as apathetic I've felt about a Badger bowl appearance as I can remember.

Impressive finish. They didn't need a good QB today. Miami gave it to them.

35-3. That was a lot easier than I thought.
