BO PELINI and NEBRASKA vs BRET BIELEMA and WISCONSIN for 12 ROUNDS

The B1G Championship game, as uninspiring as it may be, will hold most of our attention, but we'll also be keeping an eye on the ACC Championship game and Texas at Kansas State.

Now let's get into a championship featuring teams that Ohio State handled!

I'm pulling for Wisky tonite. Don't like Nebraska rolling into the conference and walking away with the championship so soon.

penult's picture

You want Beilema to win a second B1G championship game in a row? Wow. Don't worry I'm sure they'll probably win and embarrass the conference tonight and at the Jim Delany Bowl again.

DetroitBuckeye's picture

Nebraska gives the big ten a better chance in the rose bowl besides they deserve to go as they are clearly a better team then Wisky.

 
dja.ohio's picture

I don't disagree with you on those points.

haha, love the picture!  King Hippo ftw

Nebraska vs. Wisconsin***
***There because the NCAA is crap, and Wisconsin didn't truely win the Leaders. 
Go Huskers! 

Look closely, because the closer you think you are, the less you will actually see.

Or get second place
 

GO BUCKS

Wowwwwww Georgia.

Intro Video has them saying they are the leaders.... No, they are the Unmerited leaders of the division. Nice edit FOX. 

Look closely, because the closer you think you are, the less you will actually see.

 

kareemabduljacobb's picture

Gotta root for the former Buckeye here and go w/ Bo Pelini and Neb.  At least if they somehow win the Rose bowl they'd finish at a respectable 11-2 and that would make our 63-38 beating of them look that more impressive to the AP voters.

Man, I can't wait to see this B1G championship! (Said no one.)

SilverBulletNYC's picture

Man, that place isn't even half full...wait til we fill it up next year. Go Bucks!

The South will NOT rise again!

I am so not in the mood to watch this

FOX sucks so bad.

This is like a high school football championship broadcast. Embarrassing.

Seabass1974's picture

Ohio State fanbase should have gone to this place and filled it up. Then chanted O-H-I-O with a little 12-0 thrown in there. Could have been a classic scene. Haha.

DetroitBuckeye's picture

I am shocked that this place isn't filled, Nebraska has an incredible fanbase and Wisconsin's isn't too bad in terms of attendance either.  Maybe because it's so far from Nebraska???

 
wmbuckeye557's picture

That would have been awesome!

VHX7's picture

Look at all those empty seats. I can only imagine how full it will be if it ends up being Ohio State vs. Nebraska next year.

Holiday hopp'd, and some lady in the Hubbard asked them to turn the SEC game to the Buckeye Basketball game. Gotta love Columbus.

VHX7's picture

Nebraska's defense completely nonexistant on that play, kind of like when they played us.

dja.ohio's picture

Great B1G football on that Wisky scoring play.  lol  I hope the conference manages to get at least one win in a bowl game.

Hoody Wayes's picture

Lots of empty seats.

rdubs's picture

This one is overrrrrrrrrrrr

kr66osu's picture

This is a disaster for the Big Ten.

nickma71's picture

I don't think so. The real problem is having Wisconsin show up and try to play like Aaron Rodgers again when the opponent is severly over matched in the trenches. Refering to the embarassing loss to TCU I think it was. TCU was grossly over matched and Wisconsin found a way to lose. The disaster is having the 4th best team in the Confrence (Nebraska) getting to the title game. Nobody has forgotten that Wisconsin lost at home to OSU and then to prove a second time the division is theirs couldn't handle Penn State either. Or did you all forget OSU dropped 63 on Nebraska? So the way I see it, Nebraska is 4th in the Big Ten. Making Michigan no better than 5th or possibly 6th. Do they really beat Wisconsin knowing they are soft in the trenches?

VHX7's picture

I thought Martinez was better than Braxton?
 

rdubs's picture

Should have been caught, but a little high on a relatively easy stop route.

This does look like a high school game, only without the execution.

God and I thought Illinois going in 2007 was bad. Assuming this holds up, Stanford is going to shut that run game down just like Oregon State did.

Hmm, 14-0 already.  Do I watch the rest or no?
Turning it off for sure if Wisky goes up by 3 TDs.

Would love to see a Wisconsin blowout... Big Ten is a joke year and I would love nothing than to see Neb get whooped by Wisky.

steensn's picture

I will add, typically I root for whatever helps the Big Ten and OSU, but at this point it is so bad a good wakeup call would be nice...

dja.ohio's picture

What a joke this game is! TD NEB.

steensn's picture

I'll be honest, I don't think Braxton had a run like that this year. Can someone point me to one?

DetroitBuckeye's picture

First game of the year against Miami.

 
steensn's picture

The stutter/high step run?
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jYooM_lASCc
It was a great run, but Martinez's run is a bit more impressive...

DetroitBuckeye's picture

I was talking in terms of yardage, Braxton isn't much of a scrambler really he works much better with designed runs.  

 
steensn's picture

I agree, Martinez is more of a scrabler not a desgined runner. We can both agree Braxton is a better passer right ;) haha!
But overall, Martinez's run is more impressive/exciting objectively speaking. I pick Braxton without question.

DetroitBuckeye's picture

I think Braxton's composure and poise is what seperates the two qb's, Martinez is probably better at putting up garbage time numbers but always folds in the big games.

 
Alhan's picture

Martinez is more of a scrabler

You mean he's proficient at Words With Friends?
I kid :-)

That is why in this conference there are only two legitimate quarterbacks.  If he could be more consistent Martinez could be really great.

No one can say that this isn't entertaining....

kr66osu's picture

This game is already reaching astronomical levels of stupid

VHX7's picture

14-7 and not even 5 minutes have passed yet. Hopefully this finishes 77-70.

Baroclinicity's picture

I think the most impressive thing about the Martinez run is that he didn't lose the top end inside the 20 yard line.  He ran a long way.

When you're holding a hammer, everything looks like a nail.

You have to wonder why Nebraska is having so much more success than we did running IV. Is Martinez just more decisive on that play? Is Wisky doing something different tonight? Ross?

Slider...you stink

If Wisky wins, there should be an asterisk * next to their name as B1G champs.

Same if Nebraska wins. OSU clearly won the B1G

The best thing about Pastafarianism? It is not only acceptable, but advisable, to be heavily sauced

DetroitBuckeye's picture

Nebraska's defense really sucks, once the Huskers offense gets going I expect them to roll.

 
VHX7's picture

Also, the way this is looking, I don't think it will matter if Nebraska's offense gets going considering they're going to be down by 25+ when they do.

tennbuckeye19's picture

It pretty much figures. The perception is that the conference stinks. And this is our "showcase" game.

VHX7's picture

Nebraska's defense has been crap all season, as shown by us dropping 63 on them. It's just that every other offense in this conference sucks, so they only got exposed by UCLA and OSU. I have a feeling that, had Denard not gotten injured, he would have eventually run wild on them just like Braxton did.

Arizona_Buckeye's picture

It is just getting worse - I need more vodka!  It really pisses me off that this fat f@#$ Bielema is going to win the B1G Championship... pathetic season and this is where we are.  They should have just canceled this game...

The best thing about Pastafarianism? It is not only acceptable, but advisable, to be heavily sauced

Alhan's picture

If it makes you feel any better, you'll get to see Bielema cry after the Rose Bowl again (provided they win and get the bid).

Nebby's defense probably couldn't even stop my grandma from rushing at them...and she's old...and slow.

BuckGnome's picture

Gus Johnson seems a bit off tonight

tennbuckeye19's picture

In his defense, he did call the Pac 12 championship game last night only to fly to Indy today to do the B1G sham of a championship. He's probably a little tired...and mad that this game sucks so bad.

At this point, I could care less who goes and does what. At the end of this game, there's going to be an asterisk behind the name of the winner indicating that they will forever be commemorated as Ohio State's bitch in 2012.

You got that right.
*Leaders Division champions Ohio State (12-0) did not play in the conference title game. Ohio State defeated both Nebraska and Wisconsin in the regular season.
*Leaders Division runners-up Penn State (8-4) also did not play in the conference title game. Penn State defeated Wisconsin and got refballed against Nebraska in the regular season.
This whole season is stupid. Though on the plus side, I can't wait to see Bert Bolima's face when he loses a 3rd straight Rose Bowl.

Remember that one time when Nebby's defense stopped Wisky? Me neither...

Now THERE is an idea! Let's go PAC 12! Nicer weather to play in at the away games for sure. Screw the sec, they don't deserve us. Plus, we have all our teeth and partake in proper hygiene (that kind of stuff makes those sec folks kinda nervous and alllll) and they may feel pretty bad about not being able to complete normal sentences when spoken to. Plus, the "pot leaf stickers" we have would go more naturally with the CA teams, WA teams and especially the state of Oregon. Yeahhhh, we'd fit right in!

Welcome to the BIG 10 newbie

Jarrett's picture

After calming down a bit from last nights "game" I agree with what you're saying. Although I was hoping the team with the better record would win. You're spot on. The one, kind-a-sort-a, positive from this is that Nebraska, the new kid on the block, didn't just walk in here and get a championship. Good call- very understated but as far as hating Wisky, I have to say it's OK for Nebraska to get a good old fashioned butt kickin' from an long time Big Ten school. 
That said- knowing how unprepared Brasky was, I'm not so sure IF they would have beaten Wisconsin, Stanford wouldn't have done the same thing- making it a BIGGER stage and even MORE embarrassing nationally. 
NOW we are the massive underdog (and laughing stock) in this game. It IS possible that Wisky takes it to Stanford. Doubtful but possible. So, eh- it's in the books now and on the bowl schedule...nothing to do but wait. Argh.

The season is over. How is SOS relevant at this point? 12-0

Because national perception remains important, especially for preseason rankings next year.

I doubt this will make any difference.  The national perception is already in the crapper at this point.

TheTenYearWar's picture

How will it not make any difference?  OSU had one signature win, and now that's a total joke. 

Baroclinicity's picture

Look at the big picture.  One signature win, as you say, would not have made much difference.  Voters are going to judge us based on performance this year and returning starters more than what happens to Nebraska tonight.
 

When you're holding a hammer, everything looks like a nail.

tennbuckeye19's picture

OSU won all their games. Signature or not, all were won. If the rest of the conference sucking hurts us, so be it. I'll worry about that...um next year.

Fair enough.  I'm saying that given how much preseason rankings can matter, this is definitely not a positive.

Horrible call. That guy was part of the play and Bell blocked him in his front shoulder. He even dipped down to avoid head to head contact. That was a picture perfect block and led to a TD. Awful, awful call.

buckeyedude's picture

I went to the Ohio D-1 championship game in Canton, and Whitmer got a penalty for a "helmet to helmet" hit against Moeller. 15 yards, first down Moeller.
And then it occured to me: why are the players wearing helmets in first effing place?! Is it not to hit someone else in the helmet?  How does one make a tackle, making sure not touch opposing player's helmet with your helmet? Why don't they just tie a huge f$%^KING pillow around every player's helmet for added F%^King protection? Why not force these young men to wear son-of-a-bitchin' panty hose and high heels while we're at it? Geez effing Louise!
Just venting. Got off on a tangent there. I'm OK now. I guess.

I don't think any team has ever come from 39 down in the history of football, and a team that can't pass probably isn't going to be the first.
And just as I type that, Bucky scores again. They're at almost 400 yards rushing already. This is making the Buckeyes against Penn State in '94 look like the '85 Bears.

On ABC they just said "we'd like to welcome those of you who were watching the Big Ten championship game."  The third quarter was barely under way. Thus begins the trolling. So embarrassing.
 
By redneck logic we can at least say our division is obviously better, right? We could chant 'Leaders' at B1G games.

This is sort of what I expected to happen tonight.  I thought Wisky played us MUCH tougher than NE did this year.  It seems like Wisky got it together in the second half of the season.  They are playing a lot better football than NE after their rough start.

Yes there are two Buckeyes in Ann arbor on this site!

Except for losing to PSU without Mauti in the last regular season game...

Holy cow. How did Nebraska win any games this year with that defense?
My grandmother could score on this defense, and that's without taping a cheetah to her back.

Looks like Wisky is on the way to score 100. Wow! What's wrong with Nebraska's run defense?

Regardless of how pathetic this Nebraska defense is, Wisconsin has really impressed me in this game.  They are playing like they have been in previous years, for the first time this year.

I am embarrased for Nebraska. Like I seriously feel bad for them.

On the bright side, at least Nebraska kept ttun out of this game

Does Bo have a job next year? I would fire him

I would as well, they are wayyyyyy too proud of a program for this garbage.

Exactly. I wrote a forum about this and most people think he's safe. My "contacts" in Brasky say otherwise. I guess they have a new AD that would like to put "his guy" in....whoever that would be. I hear the Husker fans aren't thrilled about Bo's act anymore...and games like this? They looked totally unprepared, out coached, out played- and in a championship game? Times the disappointment by ten, at least. Very sad.

I don't think anyone could have seen this coming.  What an embarassment for Nebraska and for the conference.

This game just shows how close the rest of the conference is after Ohio State

TheTenYearWar's picture

I think it shows how close the conference is period.

Huh? 
1) OSU
 
 
2) Rest of the conference.
Unless there was another Big Ten team that actually went undefeated...
 

IBLEEDSCARLETANDGRAY's picture

Ugh, Miller and Hyde would both have 200+ yards by now.
BTW, that penalty on the blind-side block was the biggest joke of the game. Clean block. So the message the NCAA is sending players is, don't block? That flag wiped out the TD. Football will become a joke the day tackling and blocking are outlawed. All this pussy-footing around angers me more than anything else.

On the brightside, Georgia Tech is representing watch out.

If im Nebraska I don't punt the rest of the game. It's either go for it on every down or give up for the next 20 mins.

Looks like this game results will Keep Michigan out of the Capital one bowl.

You saw what they did to Sparty and the sugar bowl last year so you never know.

I hope it does.  Better matchup in the Outback.

Courtney Love might want to reconsider?

Yeah playing for OSU would be Nirvana compared to playing for Nebby's defense...

Heavily recruited by the staff this summer. Buddy got an offer to Nebraska and took it (by far his best offer) and he wanted to go play with his buddy.

DetroitBuckeye's picture

Wow, okay nevermind I thought you were talking about Courteney Love the psychotic former frontwoman for hole.

 
steensn's picture

Nope, but maybe I should have left you hanging ;) Made a few more references to egg you on!?

tennbuckeye19's picture

Remember when we all thought OSU's defense was the worst ever?
We were wrong.
 

steensn's picture

So, what does this do when the Big Ten champ is unranked? No bowl busters because of Kent State!?

It makes us look too much like the big east

Anyone know if Wisky is supposed to be any good next year based on players returning.  I hate them, but they do seem to be improving.  Certainly with the help of horrible Nebraska D.  

VHX7's picture

Offensively they lose RB Montee Ball and OT Ricky Wagner. Defensively, they lose 3 guys from the secondary, and LB Mike Taylor. That's all.
Needless to say, if there's any year that they're going to challenge Ohio State for the division, it's going to be next year. Wisconsin is going to be a very senior-laden team next year, especially on defense. After next year, they lose a heck of a lot of players.

ColoradoBuckeye74's picture

Thanks, I was thinking they would have a solid team.  Looks like the Wisky game may remain interesting next year although I think we will be too good for them to handle.  

VHX7's picture

We think alike. Like I said, next year will be the closest they'll be to competing with Meyer and OSU. They return a lot, but we return a heck of a lot of talent too, especially on the offensive side of the ball. If Roby comes back, the secondary should be pretty solid (or at least experienced). MLB is really the big question on defense, obviously.
I think that now that they have a full season under their belts and a bunch of time to practice, OSU's offense is going to absolutely desimate the Big Ten next season.

That should've been a fucking flag. I'd love to see a fight.

AngryWoody's picture

Did you see that body slam? I've seen that move before

Our Honor Defend!

wside buck's picture

Wisconsin should just put an extra blocker in for the qb and direct snap to a running back. they are not going to pass again

kr66osu's picture

This is going to be one of the worst bowl lineups we will ever witness.

bigbadbuck's picture

624 yards of total offense for Wisconsin?.2 running backs with 200 yards or better and 3 backs with over 100 yards each? Hey This is the Nebraska we've all come to know and love!!!!!

Battles are sometimes won by generals; wars are nearly always won by sergeants and privates. Football is no different, the guys down in the trenches win the games, not the coach.

Wisky is a five loss B1G champ. Think about it for a minute.

Couldn't watch the B1G championship trophy presentation. Talk about insult to injury. Argh. 
Gonna say good night here and turn on my recording of The Game 2012 or maybe the recording of us beating Wisky Tango or Brasky..... At least I've got that.

I wonder if Bielema was trying to make a statement that they're as good as us.  Even though we did beat both teams.

NoVA Buckeye's picture

There's a fine line between making a statement and being a dick.

I'll let you guess as to what BERT was doing tonight.

The offseason begins when your season ends. Even then there are no days off.

Now do you all understand how brilliant Jim Delany is?

hard to make a statement when u run up the middle every play
 
for Wisconsin to take the foot of the pedal of theirFord  F650
they would have to go to a five wideout set in the shotgun

I'm a friend of thunder is it any wonder lightning strikes me

I'm def not a Badger fan and I cant stand the obese coach but you have to kind of like the way they just line up and pound teams.
Like the one drive against us and the whole game 2010
They do win with less talented athletes than almost all BCS conference teams
