How have I not noticed that resemblence.  Considered me shamed.

The subliminal Vegas reference is fantastic

I feel the need to create a "NOT UP IN HERE" t-shirt to wear 10/29/11.

I'll be watching Wisky here in a few ... wishing for slippery ball type stuff.

^This. I'm surprised no one commented on James calling Wisky by the name of the newest addition to the B1G, Nebraska. What a tool.

Let's see here Craig.  Wisconsin was 12-1 in games against teams smaller than them

Meh, this Wisconsin game is going to get very ugly. In other news, DANE SANZENBACHER is on tv vs the Browns!

Wiscy with a good start.  Lets see how they are as the game settles down.  RW looked good, smooth passes. 

Wouldn't that be a bitch if Wiscy players got cought trading memorabilia for cheese and milk.

Wisconsin getting Russell Wilson was a big coup.

Yeah it's against UNLV, but Montee Ball looks really good so far.

Riggins's picture

Looks much quicker than last year.  They said he dropped some weight.

Wilson had a few overthrows on possible TDs. Ortherwise Wiscy looks really good on offense.  The line is enormous.

Tim's picture

Yeah, he looks quicker and showed some nice balance on that long TD run.  I thought Wisconsin's line might be down a little bit with the guys who left for the draft, but they're still huge.

Breaking news: Wisc rich booster found to have provided Jersey Heifers to Wisc OL. Oh, the humanity!!!.....or something

As my dad would to say -- Wisconsin is going through UNLV "like shit through a goose"!

Boy was I wrong about this game.  Wisconsin usually starts slower than anyone in the nation.  Hope our D-line is watching...time to start preparing for that running game.

Did you know that Hauck is trying to change the culture at UNLV?

You will be eating those words.

Wiscy's D definitely misses the guys they lost.  Without a little help from the refs and some mistakes by UNLV, they'd only be up 20-10 right now.

Why is the Wisconsin game not appearing on my ESPN HD channel? (Time Warner - Columbus) Anyone else having the same issue?

UNLV is shooting themselves in the foot! Could be a little closer game. Wisky running game great as usual.

Wisky's D-line and defense in general looks average. They look slow and are really going to miss Watt.

BUCKEYES BABY!

Colin's picture

I'm starting to feel better about Wisconsin, they are reallyyyy struggling with runs up the gut right now. No JJ Watt makes a world of difference.

Buckeyejason's picture

UNLV terrible in the red zone, my gosh!!

BUCKEYES BABY!

That Wilson guy looks pretty good.....

Riggins's picture

Russell Wilson on a nifty 46-yard scamper.  Wisconsin offense is looking explosive.

Agreed on their defense though.  They need to come together in a hurry or it's going to be a liability.

Buckeyejason's picture

Their running game is like playing NCAA on PS3.Can't stand them.

[Cencored] Bucky!!

BUCKEYES BABY!

Screen passes are automatic 60 yard gains right now.  Something to watch for.
