PHONE'S RINGING -- IT'S URBAN ON THE LINE
Keep it rolling, Badgers.
0-3! 0-3! 0-3!
It's a shame we won't get to see Bielema on the sidelines for another Rose Bowl loss.
Desmond Howard shouldn't be allowed in the Heisman House... his bits are always boarderline creepy.
Now we get to see the Vadgers go down
Go Stanford! Wisconsin doesn't deserve to be there!
Ohio State's band SLAUGHTERED Michigan's band. If this were a football game, it would have been Florida State vs. Savannah State. - SB Nation following OSU vs. UM 2012
You guys think Bielama is watching this game or is he still hungover from his first NYE in Arkansas?
really wasn't that good of a catch, the vadgers "D" sucks...
Well that was quick. Defense is optional for the B1G today.
Montee Ball is a baller.
I can't tell if he liked that first drive or hated it?
He ate it, obviously.
"There is a force that makes us all brothers, no one goes his way alone." --Woody Hayes
Seeing Alvarez on the sideline brings back memories.
Is that photo of Alvarez for real or intentionally stretched out to exemplify his girth?
That is bielema. And actual
Pretty sure he means the pic on top of the thread.
Yes. That one.
I thought it was stretched out purposely to reflect his poor choice of turtleneck fashion.
The Badgers get bloodied early.....
An angry fan...rooting for an angry team...led by angry coaches
Takes the nickname "Vadger" to a whole new level...
Gross. But accurate.
wow. Wisconsin is completely outgunned in this one.
Like I said and got a downvote for, the Vadgers "D" really sucks
I think you're confusing Wisky's D for Nebraska's.
"Here officer, hold my beer while I find my license."
B1G theme of the day: Defense optional.
Wisconsin doesn't have a prayer, this one will be done by halftime.
it's only 17-14 Stanford. does that equal done? lol
Come on Barry. Work some 90's magic.
Wow. Wisconsin being out-Wisconsin'd.
David Shaw to Barry Alvarez: "This is how you run power-I"
Gameplan for any team vs. B1G: Take seven step drop. Throw to any spot on the field. Kick the extra point.
It's weird, Wisconsin totally looks like an 8-5 team. Oh wait ...
Are we allowed to say that this game is over already and save the B1G the embarrassment of allowing 80 points?
Yes please! Throw in the towel!
Rose Bowl Road Kill
How many of you are surprised at this early rout? I'm not.
Pretty happy Nebraska hung in for so long. If they would have stuck more with that up-tempo and less passing (INT's, derp!) they could have won the game. They had the UGa defense on the ropes and at times just waited for them to sub, line up, etc.
Commentators were particularly annoying with how great the SEC defense is. Yeah, right.
Not hopeful for Wisky and this could be a matchup worse than Purdue drew.
No way. Every fucking call went against Nebraska while they ignored blatant intentional grounding a million holds committed by Georgia. Fucking Big XII refs.
One thing that struck me in that game was how many personal fouls Georgia had. When Martinez got hit (early Q4 I think) and yeah, I guess he was like 2" inbounds I yelled at the TV it's time to start ejecting GA players. In fact, how often do you see TWO blatant personal fouls on one play; the receiver for Brasky was clearly pummeled after calling a fair catch but because of the other personal foul up the field no flag. Pelini went nuts as well he should have. They are just a dirty team.
So I agree the refs were awful, particularly on the grounding calls.
Clearly its taught in GA that you tackle by grabbing face masks. Not all got called.
Yeah the intentional grounding calls got me. Not 1 UGA player within 30 yards and no call but Nebraska gets flagged for it when the ball was within 3 yards of an eligible receiver.
I hope Montee is good for 40+ touches.
Wisconsin - the B1G winner - completely being dominated by nerds
The best thing about Pastafarianism? It is not only acceptable, but advisable, to be heavily sauced
Wisconsin's best play is accepting a personal foul penalty.
The only hope to avoid having 60 put on the board against them is that they MAY run the ball and kill some clock
I was just telling my dad the same thing. It is good to see them actually get a stop. Maybe that'll give them a little momentum.
I think the best football of the day is behind us. Thank you northwestern.
Oohhhh SNAP!!! Touchdown called back for holding.
This might be a good time to run Ball up the middle
Amazing effort but knee is down. Almost a TD.
50% of Wisconsin passes have almost been touchdowns.
How do you not give that to Montee. Really.
Wildcat huh? With James White? Not like Montee Ball doesn't hold the all time record for most TD.
Who would have thought they were going to run that up the middle...
You don’t think Stanford knows how to defend power?
Wow, Wisconsin got out muscled. Nice effort Stanford.
Can Pat Fitzgerald jump a plane right now and hustle his a$$ in to coach Wisconsin in at least the 2nd 1/2????
Too late. Already drunk from partying up in Chi-City.
Safety would be nice here.
Edit: so much for that.
Man...9 min drive and you get nothing. Brutal.
Nifty play there.
Sorry to hit you in the hands son
you gotta catch that jared
And Wisky doing its Sparty imitation. Is Montee hurt?
Just his feelings. Why no carries coach?
Ha. Face mask assist.
Barry is trying to channel a little Tress with the sweater vest.
They are now moving the ball rather well. Maybe it was early game jitters for Alvarez?
I think that was just his diabetes?
That seriously made me LOL. +1 for you
I think that the helmet that pass bounced off of should get credit for the completion, not Phillips.
Montee to coaching staff: "Dammit you should have given me the ball last series on that 4th. Now I had to go MORE yards to get the touchdown."
watching the ESPNU UA practice during commercial breaks... SEC obsession all over the place by the recruiting analysts... really wish ESPN would at least cover things evenly, or be less obvious, makes watching things like this feel like being cheated out of decent coverage for recruiting... big TD for Wisconsin... be nice for their D to get a turnover
I hear you, but they can't help it that most of the top talent has verbaled to the sec, or is considering sec teams. Just looking at it from the other side.
You know they have and agenda, so why do you watch?
in the hope of seeing Bosa body slam someone, throws up the DDP, and does a backflip whilst saying 'Buckeyes, baby!'
Hell I'll take a defensive stop when Stanford isn't pushed back against their own goal line.
they just analysed Vanderbilts class, now discussing OLE MISS's class... who cares
Do they have a lot of... SEC... speed?
im sure they have that, and a ton of SEC physicality, SEC toughness, and SEC leaping ability... probably can SEC tackle too
Why of Course. AND NFLTalent!!!!!
Standford's offense is going to wear themselves out at this pace
Apparently, Jordan Williamson only knows how to put in FGs over 45 yards in distance.
Lets all share our love for the Griese family...oh, wait
This possession for bucky is bigger than alvarez's waistline.
By the way, thanks to Dr. Jane Goodall for asking, immediately after being presented for the coin flip and handed a coin, whether or not she should flip it. I know she's British and all, but I'll bet she knows some chimps that could have figured that out.
Re NIU: Herbie doing the crawfish.
I think the FSU/NIU is a decent game to watch, not saying NIU pulls off the major upset, but I think they can hang with those boys...definitely can see them breaking a few big plays
Really? I have not watched them other than the Mac championship and I was not impressed. What makes you a believer?
FSU is prone to mistakes...also, too many examples of teams being bashed for being from a weaker conference or having a weaker schedule and tends to lead to them playing above their pay grade... think NIU can channel some inner Boise State and play well and be able to push FSU... dont think this is a UC/Florida situation in the sugar a couple years ago, more of a UConn/Oklahoma match up where UConn pushed OU for 3 quarters but just didnt have the gas or the players to hang with Oklahoma for 4 quarters
Don't necessarily agree, or think that NIU is in the same league as even UConn, but good points. +1 for you.
Not calling foul on the officiating but that looked more like offensive than defensive...maybe it's just me though.
Is the walrus calling Wisconsin's offensive game today?
Go Wisky. End Zone.
Well I shall take my crappy remarks back: I honestly didn't think Wisky could hang with Stanford but apparently they can.
You were not alone in your doubt
Night and day difference from the start of the game...that's for sure.
I hate you Bobby DiGeronimo.
Next year the Buckeyes will be in Pasadena one way or the other...
Wait. Did I hear correctly that Wisconsin busted out wristbands from the 2003 game against Ohio State?
FUCK THE BADGERS. FUCK THEM TO PIECES.
Is it bad to have our hopes up right now? Probably only leads to a complete letdown.
Bucky catching all the breaks in the first half.
this team technically finished 6th in the Big 10... not too shabby against the Pac-12's best
Silly me, I should have figured
Badger > a tree OR are they a bird? Can't they decide?
Fucking Badgers. As an 8-5 team, you could use to get a little in-conference sympathy from the Buckeyes, instead of antagonizing us instead.
Wow, other bands really suck
They spelled "funny" ...but I'm a little dumbfounded as to what was supposed to be funny. And why was one of Stanford's band members wearing a cheesehead? That whole show was a head scratcher.
That is their shtick, to be weird.
That would explain playing Blink 182. That wasn't even funny 14-15 years ago.
And them being on the field that one time before the game was over?
Class of 2010.
Blink 182? Your band sucks, freaks.
Whoa! Brutus would never do this!
Best tweet of the game @TomOrr4: Trying to imagine what Twitter would look like if the B1G champion was struggling against the 6th-best Pac-12 team in a bowl game.
Barry jacking Tress's sweatervest swag.
flag on the play
"Ben Gardner's boat. That's Ben Gardner's boat!"
I wish Stanford were in the B1G. They seem like they are basically B1G west.
If they were the B1G GPA would be higher...
And football ranking, as well as almost every other sport.
Naw, if they were in the Big Ten they would automatically see their ranking drop 10 spots.
Excellent academics, power-I, lock-down defense. Yep. Pretty much.
This looks like a good time to run Montee Ball off tackle.
Dear ESPN, get a dictionary and learn proper word usage... a loss by 2 scores is not a rout.. context: "Georgia routs Nebraska 45-31"
South Carolina victory would be a "blow out" by those standards.
So by that logic, Northwestern routed Mississippi St. And that game never really felt like it would swing MSU's way but you know that's going to be a headline of Northwestern holds off MSU or something along those lines.
Its also not a rout when its tied early Q4. No bias for them!
I hate them so much.
doubt they say Northwestern routed Mississippi State.
dude was scared to get hit, and we just found out why
Sorry son - that's what you get for dropping a pass that wide open
Damn. Throw the damn ball with zip and sooner. Gonna get your reciever killed.
Wow, huge hit by Stanford safety. Clean too.
Was the wr defenseless there? Or does that only apply in the nfl?
It was to the middle of the body. Clean.
Just looked this up.
ARTICLE 14. A defenseless player is one who because his physical position
and focus of concentration is especially vulnerable to injury. Examples of
defenseless players are:
Rule 2 / Definitions FR-41
a. A player in the act of or just after throwing a pass.
b. A receiver whose focus is on catching a pass.
c. A kicker in the act of or just after kicking a ball.
d. A kick returner whose focus is on catching or recovering a kick in the
e. A player on the ground at the end of a play.
f. A player obviously out of the play.
That wasn't defenseless. He was still playing the ball. Defenseless is more of a defender blatantly hitting a WR well after the ball had passed or drilling a guy not involved with the play.
Thanks, just seems rule 2 b applied? Really a moot point.
That's the reason I never play receiver in pick-up games.
It was a good hit, but that was on the QB. He should have thrown it sooner and with some zip. It just floated out there.
There have been some big time hits today...even though Clowney's runs away with the hit of the day (maybe year)
ugh. I'm listening to the game via ESPN radio and between quarters,Brian Griese gets into Rose Bowl hall of fame. I may not be able to keep lunch down.
I'd pull that QB for the other guy. He has a gun for an arm.
I'm pulling for Wisky. *icigan is the only B1G team that I root against in the bowls. B1G being very competitive so far.
Its good to be the king
F*** why do you run in the punter!
wow, surprised the ball didnt pop out
Wisky's D formation with two down and rest up is interesting if not effective.
would like to see more play action from wisconsin
This is playing a B1G way now. How long before Stanford begins to get worn out on D?
They stayed fresh against Oregon. In an interview, Shaw noted that they've been giving their second team tons of practice to avoid fatigue facing the Badger O.
Dang, dang, dang Brian Griese's mike has failed on the field. Providence. My stomach is trying to settle;
(my kittens did tell me if you have to do a mini-thow-up-just blame it on hairballs. Tough to do as a human but I'm willing....)
Intriguing how Bucky's defense has suddenly stiffened up.
one of the more lazy runs by a QB ive seen
Play action by Stanford is coming.
not much happened in that 3rd quarter... setting up a few big plays in the 4th i imagine
Enjoying the 2010 Rose Bowl game on BTN!
Fuck Brian Greise.
^^1000 points if I were worthy of such.
Having Wisconsin in the Rose Bowl is getting very, very tired.
Come on wisky. Gotta get the D going again. Can't count on missed pass. Woof.
Herbie giving some love to B1G speed!
I heard that too! Did my ears deceive me?
So is the Wisky defense getting tired?
Starting to look like it. The Wisconsin O can't stay on the field long enough.
yeah. And I LUV Uncle Buck.
Stanford out wisconsin-ing wisconsin
have to hold them to a FG
So why did Wisky stop Stanford so well and then they look like the Patriots on this drive????
Gutsy call to go outside on that down. Brilliant playcall, Shaw
dick toss.... boy did i hate dick toss during the playing days
look for a play action pass here on 3rd down
I suggest they better step up and stop there here or it is over
well Wisconsin has a chance to win the game... all they can ask for
Wisky's chance. Ball game drive right here.
Four down territory now for the Vadgers.
I thought Purdue already fired him?
Hey if Fromthe18 is offering hope, I'm ALL IN.
And to think that Alvaraz is getting $120k to coach this game.... he and his offense is more predicable then anything Tressel ever did.
"Fate has cards that it don't want to show"
I have to think the money was a payback for handling his former coach so well and they were screwed.
Good chance we only get one win today for the B1G but for most of the teams playing above where they should be on a normal year, the games have been competitive. Far better than last year's shellacking most of the teams took. Maybe things are looking up for us as a conference...but then again I'm not sure it could've been worse either so the only other direction was up I guess.
See, I thought the same thing in January of 2010, when the B1G capped off a bowl season that featured 2 BCS bowl wins, and the conference's top-4 all won their bowls. I think the B1G finished 4-3 in bowls that year.
Since then they have yet to post a winning record in bowl season, and this year it will be 2-5. I don't know how to slice 2-5 any other way than 2-5. Were the games competitive? Perhaps. But this isn't the MAC, and in the end the teams with the better talent and the better coaches won...and that keeps being not the Big Ten.
That's been a recurring theme all day with many teams. Kind of sad.
Wisky still too conservative
Was that Dave on 3rd and 1?
You need a little sense of urgency right about now Bucky
Can U keep Montee in??HOw frickin' hard is that decision?
INTERCEPTION! MIGHTY CARD!!!!
wow, terrible decision. Right before he threw that, I thought, "They should not be passing right now."
edit: I see it was a tip
Turn out the lights........
threw it away.....
Besides nw, rough 4th quarters for B1G teams.
Down go the Badgers
Get f***ed Wisconsin ahahahah
Nice INT Stanford! GO TREES GO!
Paging Les Miles?
0-3, the vadger fans don't even care. There is MAYBE a 20% section of W red in the stadium, if the Buckeyes were there it would 50/50 easily. Can 2014 RB/NCG come quick enough?
Final thought; the rest of the BIG better get their shit together and fast because The Ohio State University Buckeyes are about to leave them all in the dust. Go Bucks!!
This, this and soo this!
Good Lord we should just SO dominate next year. And all we'll hear is how shitty the competition was. Sad face.
On the bright side, the Vadgers saved us from having to watch another realistic chance at a W fizzling away due to idiot coaching decisions courtesy of Bort Bielma.
Thank you Stanford, I couldn't bare to watch Wisconsin win a completely undeserved Rose Bowl
And one other thing for tonight; Go Northern Illinois Huskies!!!!!!!
Yeah, but FSU i s damn good and I'm not optimistic.
wiscy blows, heh, 0-3, third time is not the charm for them...
Another Wisc Rose Bowl loss - way to set the bar at 0 - 3. They should be banned
Alvarez looks legitimately sad.
He always looks like that. That's his face.
Of course he is. His perfect record is ruined.
"YOLO" = I'm about to do something extremely ignorant/stupid & I need an excuse to do it.
0-3 in Rose Bowls....
This is what happens when a 8-5 team plays in the Rose Bowl. I couldn't think of a better fanbase for this to happen to other than Wisconsin!
Barry 3-1 in Rose Bowls
Woody Hayes has the most wins for any B1G team!
Happy not to hear Musberger say "The Cardinal" again.
David shaw is a class act. Negotiated contract renewal without an agent. I love a coach that loves his job.
Yeah but so was Bama a few years ago and Utah beat them in the Sugar like a drum so you never know; that's why they play the game.
No doubt; Shaw is a class act all the way.
It's a good day to be a Buckeye.Them B1G bottomfeeders all went down ,except for the Nerds and they will get their whoop'in later this year when they get Buckeyed.Feels good. GO BUCKS!
I wish I didn't know now what I didn't know then.
6 loss team in the Rose Bowl. Gotta love it.
You know, they just talked for some time about Stanford's strengths, Stanford's recent history, Stanford's play, and Stanford's future.Not once did any of the announcers use the words "PAC-12". If this had been a team from the SEC this win would have been used to demonstrate all sorts of great things about "the SEC". Imagine the number of times "SEC defensive power" would have been mentioned if, say, Georgia had just played the defensive game Stanford played.
So I guess any SEC win says something good about the whole SEC, any loss by any non-SEC team shows the weakness of a given conference, and any win by a non-SEC team only says something about that particular team. Got it.
Not gonna lie I'm glad the rest of the conference sucked today. I hate the SEC and props to Northwestern for finally breaking their streak but I'm not one to be a "Conference Fan." I love my Buckeyes and my Buckeyes only
"There's nothing that cleanses your soul like getting the hell kicked out of you." Woody Hayes
I found myself cheering against every Big Ten team except for Northwestern this year
Big 10 teams showed up today...regardless of how ESPN or other college football analysts want to paint it... Nebraska had no business being in that game with UGA, Wisconsin was the 6th best team in the big ten this year and played the pac-12 champs and Michigan blew it in the final seconds... Purdue was Purdue so who cares about them. Props to NW
Nope. Loss = not even competing, according to college football analysts and ESPN.
It's true that the rest of the Big 10 needs to start actually winning these games, but it's not like the talent gap is that big. The coaching gap sure as hell is, though.
Time to look forward to National Signing Day when the Buckeyes reel in a top class and reload for the future. As for the TSUN; I'm not sure why anyone would want to go there; they have a fat blabber mouth guy who thinks he can coach; they have butt ugly girls and the whole state is going down the toilet....in other words; LOSERS!!
sigh. Northwestern... class of the B1G
About what I expected from this game. I didn't think Wisconsin would get run out of the stadium, but I didn't think they'd actually pull it out. For the 6th best team in this conference against the best of the PAC 12, not too shabby.
