If I wasn't there I wouldn't have believed it.
Just made a bet with a Wisconsin staffer. @ryandaytime cover #87 tomorrow. I have it on a good source.— D.J. Byrnes (@DJforOhio) December 7, 2019
The staffer (we're not divulging his identity) confidently told us the Badgers' strategy would be built around Quintez Cephus. DJ then did what any good fan would do.
Hey @ryandaytime Wisconsin is going to try to throw on us!!! I couldn't believe my ears either when the Bucky staffer told me. I laughed so hard I thought he was going to punch me in the face but we worked it out. Cover #87!!!!!— D.J. Byrnes (@DJforOhio) December 7, 2019
The advice went unheeded, as we all witnessed the following evening.
Literally my report was this:— D.J. Byrnes (@DJforOhio) December 8, 2019
Wisconsin said theyre going to come out throwing. #87 is going to lead the charge. And then from there they're going to try to run from there.
So yeah. If OSU loses it will not be my problem. I did my part. https://t.co/JryhCtI4me
Wisconsin came out of the gate doing exactly what the staffer said they would do. Cephus finished with seven receptions (career and game high) for 122 yards (game high).
Oh my god @ryandaytime I told you to cover #87 now I lost $100 of Ohio's gdp— D.J. Byrnes (@DJforOhio) December 8, 2019
We tell the story of exactly how the strategy leaked here (begins at the 9:38 mark) since talking about the Browns isn't nearly as fun (something we didn't consider when we conceived the podcast, because we're stupid).

Half the show is about Ohio State again
@DJforOhio infiltrated UWs coaching staff at 2am in Indy
@miabigbutter joins us to spit #browns
If anyone would have listened, maybe Ohio State squashes Wisconsin's rebellion in the 1st half and the Buckeyes retain the top CFP seed. Makes you think.
