Think we don't move up but hope we don't drop a spot. The good news is that maybe both Wisc and MN both move up this week ahead of the game next week. Could be a 13-15 Wisc vs. a 21-23 MN for the West title. The winner of that game could pick up a few more spots so we might be facing a top 10 (or close) Wisc team or a top 15-20 Mn team. A win for the Bucks in the B1G Championship might be enough to vault us ahead of TCU and/or Baylor into the top 4. (MS ST. is not staying top 4 when all is said and done).

However, we need to play much better against um - or none of this is worth anything. Go Bucks.

1967 A kid named Paul Huff from my hometown went to play fullback for the Bucks and supplanted Jim Otis briefly, I think setting a single game rushing record against MSU and winning player of the week award.

He has done a great job. Pass catching, blocking, picking up the blitz, and especially--- I don't know how many times I think he is going to get dropped for a loss on a play to the edge and he just seems to outrun the pursuit and turn what I thought was going to be a loss or short gain into a 7 or 8 yard gain. Appreciate him now, he is the type of complete back that the nfl drools over.

Biggest difference to me this year is the committee to select the top 4 - they may try and go out of there way to give the appearance of fairness in the end by putting in a Baylor or TCU ahead of OSU. I also think that they are not going to put in 2 SEC teams because of that as well. However, I think we are now going to start getting a lot of backing from an unlikely place - ESPN. They know the Bucks will bring ratings and $ - and that is of utmost concern to them.

I do believe if the Bucks win out and do it in convincing fashion, they have a great chance to make the 4 team playoff.  As bad as um is, remember last year, they were also a dumpster fire and nearly beat us. And remember Earle Bruce's final game at *ichigan - they pulled off a huge upset. I think the Bucks are going to get it done - this team feels a lot different than anything in the recent past. Players are developing and I am happy to see the coaching and especially the game planning improve so much. Almost don't want the season to end. Go Bucks!

Oh - 8 team playoff is perfect - I think more than that and you end up being the nfl. Someone above said it too - but at least the first round then MUST be played at the home of the higher seed. (Watch the sec squirm if that ever enters the discussion - LSU at PSU, ALA at MSU, or Auburn at OSU on Dec. 15!!! UH-OH)

I'm not concerned. Tell me the D issues this year are as bad or worse than last year. I remember cringing lasts year watching our DBacks 10 yards off the line of scrimmage and knowing exactly what was coming. We are greatly improved - but can get a lot better. Didn't Wisc have the two headed monster at running back last year - and I seem to recall we did a fairly nice job of shutting them down - of course Stave threw for 1200 yards - but that's not happening again this year.

Comment 18 Nov 2014

I agree with you - I don't think the interception was necessarily JT's fault. The receiver seemed to stop on the route. However, in watching the replay, it looks like the process of him turning to try and locate the ball caused him to slow down. That said, if the ball would have been thrown more inside or if the receiver had kept running, at worst you wind up with an incomplete pass.

Comment 17 Nov 2014

No problem with the fumble at the goal line - great tackle with the helmet on the ball. On the punt return fumble, we should have had no one back to begin with. Had little to gain and a lot to lose with a fumble. Saw Wisc. get in a similar situation near the half when they had taken back the lead and the momentum from Nebraska and they left no one back to return a kick and possibly give the momentum back to Nebraska. Redshirt freshman, 15 degrees, frozen ball, snowing, not his fault. Go Bucks! 5 games left!

Comment 17 Nov 2014

To the MN linebacker - keep the bulletin board material coming. Hard enough battling espn and the press, but come on! A rematch in the dome in Indy will bring a major beat down. Bucks will be looking to make a statement.

Comment 16 Nov 2014

Agreed - Gordon is scary - but Stave looks terrible. Hopefully he doesn't go off on us for 700+ passing yards like he did last year in the Shoe. Everything he threw up was caught by  Aberderus (sp) - and we did shut the running game down - last year they had the two-headed monster. 

Comment 16 Nov 2014

For me the issue, like last year at Clemson, why do we have anyone back in those situations. We had very little to gain and a lot to lose by taking a chance. You put a red shirt freshman back in less than ideal conditions, having them field a punt during a critical point in the game where you have little to gain and a lot to lose. There is a greater chance of a fumble than a long return based on our past history. Watched the Nebraska and Wisc game - same issue - Wisc had just grabbed back the momentum, forced a three and out, and had no one back to return the punt to make sure that they would not turn the ball over.

Comment 15 Nov 2014

These people are trash - first of all, the first fumble was caused by a great helmet hit right on the ball - not many people hang onto it. Second - the coach who allowed anyone to be back on that punt return should be suspended. We had very little to gain by fielding that punt and a lot to lose. That is on the coaching staff - just like Clemson last year. Marshall is going to be great.

Comment 15 Nov 2014

No problem with the game until the punt fumble. Score could have easily been 45-10. Screaming at the TV not to put anyone back to field the punt. I don't blame Marshall - I blame the coach who let him field it. Could have been a disaster costing us the game - more thank likely though will cost us in the rankings. (Unless we use the SEC model - then we will jump 2 spots and MN will jump into the top 10 with a quality loss).

Comment 15 Nov 2014

All we can do is win out and hope for the best. No matter how bad the dumpster fire is at um, they will play the best game of the year against us and they will have extra motivation - sending Hoke out on a high note - remember Earle Bruce and his last game! How much do we gain by trouncing the team next week that defeated the SEC at there place? Winning each of these last 3 in blowout fashion should get us a spot or two alone. Go Bucks.

Comment 14 Nov 2014

Another shout out - Tom Hermann. I've been very critical of the coaching and especially the play calling - but it has improved weekly since VT and culminated last week in a masterpiece from the offensive side of the ball.
