Nice!  Thank you Turtle Man.

Apparently beating down Indiana makes you the favorites.

"YOLO" = I'm about to do something extremely ignorant/stupid & I need an excuse to do it.

Unless Wisconsin can discover a play book not written by a drunken 15 year old Bollman, they have little chance of winning this game.

I did an image search for "drunk baby walrus" but I was unable to come up with anything to post here. Disappointing.

If there were a game to take the $$ upset on, it's this one. GO BUCKS!!

It's hard not to take the Buckeyes if they are getting points, especially when playing a team that really isn't all that great

Wiscy will be 4 out of 6 covering on Sunday

Look they are a solid team and we are on the road.  It will be a tough game, one we can win, but if we don't show up we might get run over.  My hope is that their defense is worse than MSU's so it will turn out like that except with more points for the good guys.

UFM is something like 12-1 or 12-0 after bye weeks. So, I'm not worried about us not showing up.

This makes no sense

WUT??? where can I bet on this

"You're pissed because we went after a committed guy? Guess what, we got 9 guys who better go do it again," said Meyer. "Do it a little harder next time."

Congrats to the 11W faithful for winning the B1G Leaders Division while I was in SC.Twas a mighty fine thing you did in giving Dr. EGG a 3% raise,but hey that don't even match inflation.The third of a million bonus was a nice touch though.Now we must do the same for Eugenius , after he and EGG have given us this wonderful football season we are enjoying.Great job 11W,GO BUCKS!

I wish I didn't know now what I didn't know then.

In what universe should 2012 Wisconsin be a 2.5 point favorite over 2012 Ohio State?

Class of 2010.

Grayskullsession's picture

All this drunk has made me beer and I still cannot see how Wisconsin is 2.5 point favorites.

kr66osu's picture

We deserve to be 1.5 point favorites over Alabama because we beat Illinois by 30.

painterlad's picture

Uh, no, but we are getting ready to play a team that simply runs up the middle (with an outside sweep once or twice a quarter just to keep things lively) and that plays right into the strength of our defense. I'm guessing you are attempting some form of sarcasm, but then it is very early in the morning.

Ohio State is going to embarrass Wisconsin right off of their own field.  This one is going to be a massacre.  Bret Bielema is in WAY over his head against Urban Meyer.

cbusbuckeye's picture

I have a feeling it will be like this too. Heres hoping Urban makes an example out of Baby Bret!

JakeBuckeye's picture

This is pretty damn hilarious. Hope the team gets word of this...

rkylet83's picture

Wow...a team that got beat by both Nebraska and MSU is favored over a team that beat both.  I have a feeling that line is going to shift to even or slightly favoring the good guys by gametime Friday.  As others have been saying maybe it'll work as a motivational tool.  

buckeyedude's picture

This stuff really doesn't matter, except for pissing off the team that gets disrespected.
Personally, it really is a good thing that Wisconsin is favored.

Just one more bit of info for the 'motivation board.' I just hope the players hate Bielema as much as the rest of us do.

The money in Vegas will move this line by kickoff.

~Because we couldn't go for three~

LouGroza's picture

Yeah, the rush to take this wager will change things for sure.

AlphaBuck's picture

An unranked team being favored over an undefeated #6 team, has this ever happened? I know home field adv. is supposed to be worth 3/4 pts. but damn. Vegas oddsmakers must think our rank is complete BS.

Optimistic Buckeye Pessimist's picture

My guess is the Buckeyes are favored by 1 point and they are giving Wisconsin a good bit of home field advantage.  That being said, I'll be placing my wager tonight and buying the 0.5 point if it's still at +2.5 to take OSU +3.

My money met my mouth, in OSU +3.

Wisconsin has covered in four of the last five games in this series. 

Ohio State has won four of the last five in the series.

Bulletin board material. Undefeated, ranked #6 and a dog against a three-loss team. Methinks Urban will mention this in the upcoming week.

This gave me a reason to visit 5Dimes today. ;-)

Fine by me!  Let 'em be favored.  When we win it makes Badger tears even sweeter.  Urban will have the boys ready to go.

I thought Badger tears were always filled with bitterness...

Doc's picture

Bitterness and Butthurt are the two main ingredients.

Ehh I'm worried about this game, as I am about every game honestly.  I am one of the more optimistic fans on this site I feel like, but for some reason this game worries me.  Wisky wants this bad and it's a revenge game of sorts for them.  I know they don't do anything that worries me, but they've never done anything that worries me and they win often haha

Haybucks's picture

Just came from the Bourbon blog.  Instead of referring to Cheesey State by Wiscy or Whisky they should be given a proper stomach turner moniker like High Ten. Cheap and leaves a bad taste.
Bucks by 17, 24-7.

Are the Vegas oddmakers still drunk from last night?  This is absurd, I'll take those points.  I'll also bet the line shifts before the end of the week.

VEGAS KNOWS SOMETHING! I'm putting 500 on the badgers.

BUCKEYES BABY!
