The Bucks are 9-0 with three to play. How's it play out?

Who beats OSU? Illinois is in for a long day, Wisconsin is a hot pile, and does anyone really think OSU won't be ready to steam roll Michigan once this team hits 11-0?
Its gonna happen dudes. Urban Meyer pitches a perfect game in season 1....

Do I come off as arrogant? Shame on me, I was hoping it would be more obvious.

Confession: I voted 12-0 because I BELIEEEEEEVE but if I was betting money I'd say 11-1. Wisc. or Mich. could be close, especially given the inconsistency we've seen.

You know, if it were earlier, I would go with the conservative 11-1, losing at Madison. But, screw that. 12-0, Leader's Division Champs, with an outside shot at an AP Championship as well. GO BUCKS!!! O-H!!!

Turns out Wisconsin's offense is still inept. I originally thought we'd lose there, but I don't anymore. That will still be our closest game of the season though, solely because our games in Madison are ALWAYS close.

I don't know... that Purdue game was pretty close...

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

Just make that closest of the remaining games... lol. I must have a short memory.

Wisconsin doesn't worry me at all

12-0, I'm a believer!!

I voted 11-1, because even though we should be favored in our last 3 games, my sense is that we're not actually good enough to get through them without being upset. I know that doesn't seem very logical.

Penn State was the hands-down toughest test of the season. Wisconsin is, as mentioned above, a hot mess, and M*ch*gan won't be able to contain the juice this team is going to have flowing by the time they come to The Shoe to face an 11-0 Buckeye squad.

I took 12-0 because I can't imagine losing to Illinois and I can't stomach a loss to Wisconsin or Michigan.

12-0. I love this team and this coaching staff. Illinois, Wisconsin and Michigan left to go. Loving everything about this season.

I  beleive we will be 12-0.   No way we lose to Illinois.    Madison will be tough but I think we pull it out.    When we are 11-0 there is no way this team will lose to scUM

I kind of want to lose because the odds of two undefeated seasons back-to-back are ridiculous. That being said, I don't see us losing the last three games.

I'm thinking with Urban at the helm and more of his little disciples coming in next year... going undefeated consecutively isn't going to be as hard as it was with Tressel.  I can see him and this staff doing it for possibly 3 seasons with the talent they're going to have (as long as the defense steps up over the off season and does what it did in the first 3 quarters tonight for an entire game and consistently).  That being said...12-0 this year with a scare in Wisky.  It will be close for a while like tonight...then...I could see Urban pulling a 63 mark like Nebraska if he's given the chance.  TTUN game will be something to behold...Brady Hoke will be caught after the game saying this.

The only team with a chance is Michigan.  Ain't gonna happen.  This team is going 12-0.

I see us losing in Madison, I am cautiously optimistic though.  Madison at night is always tough and I think that this team might look past them.  Although we do tend to do better in big games and against pro style teams in general.  Plus, as much as I would want to go undefeated it would suck because it could mean a national title in any other year.

No way. No QB. That's what you need. Top end, high end QB play. That's what can beat this team...and Wisky ain't got it. This team is too damned fast. Even if you 'beat' them defensively they'll wear you down. Wisky doesn't have it. No way they can match athletes against this roster. Bring em on. His highness, Lord Meyer will conquer Camp Randall as easily as he conquered Happy Valley.
Can't happen. Won't happen.

Well I do not think he is as bad as Maxwell and look how close that game was, I am not basing this on reality just on me not accepting that we could run the table.  They still have a pretty good defense too, maybe the best since Bielema has been there.  Besides our linebackers and secondary is still terrible aside from Shazier bless his soul.

I definitely see where you're coming from.  But it could be that Madison at night has been tough over the last decade because we show up and think we can run Dave to a victory.  This is a whole new ballgame, Wisconsin's a poser full of 1-star recruits and walk-ons, and we have Braxton Miller.  I think we win big in Wisconsin.

The game in Madison won't be a night game because of the Big Ten's November night game rule, so that should help tone down the atmosphere at least a little bit.

It cracks me up when people cite Purdue, Cal, UAB, whatever. The big time atmosphere games this year have been fantastic for the Bucks. The thought of yet another noon game (Illionoid) is enough to make me vomit, and I know we won't look sharp. But Wisconsin and Michigan are brand names. Urban and the Bucks will be ready. 12-0.
Edit: Illinois. wtf.

Stave out for the season, yet another reason to not be worried at all about Wisconsin

I missed that, it should help our chances in that one.  Just doesn't feel like an undefeated team not yet, still though looking at who we are playing it probably will happen.

Defense is playing much better I don't see Ohio state losing after tonight.  Like Number 48 reminds me of number 10 but missed less tackles.

MSU, Indiana (sigh) and especially tonight were great road game prep for Wisconsin.  It was obviously very loud there tonight, and I don't see Madison being louder.  If that game is a cloudy day sleeper or we have (another?!) injury for some reason I could see us getting off to another slow start but not losing.  Tonight they turned a corner, in my opinion.  These kids know how to win and they are very well prepped for what's coming up.  I see all 3 games as bigger double-digit wins like tonight... Purdue is in the past.
