Same with the FG to end the half. This is truly a team that seems to be gelling, love watching them play.

Nice catch, that there was smash mouth football on an artistic level

He scored more points than the other guys.....

I kid, I kid,

for real though, I think he has found a niche that works well for the players we can recruit to Wisconsin. They build a great OL to run behind and develop really solid experienced team defense. He also benefits from a pretty weak Big 10 West.

Not sure that we see the next Chris Gamble anytime soon (though I believe there are some talented enough kids to do it). This team has been recruiting at such a high level and has constantly had to playmakers waiting in the wings. Just seems hard to see them having a kid sit in both offensive and defensive meetings when they are as loaded as they are.

Not sure I totally agree with this. Yes, being thrown could be a route to success but also a route to failure. If Haskins was a three year college starter I may agree. But my concern is his lack of experience coupled with an awful offensive line could create some bad habits early that he can’t shake as well as destroy his confidence. I have seen Dalton go from a solid NFL starter to a QB with happy feet that has no confidence to stay in the pocket due to the awful OL of the last few years.

No doubt there will be unintended consequences good and bad. Just look at how Houston maybe using the 4 game red shirt policy to keep a year of eligibility for two of their best players after a bad start to the season. But let’s remember NFL players can make money if their likeness as well and it doesn’t seem to be a huge problem, though we will see.

I think you are underestimating how important just a handful of states are to college football (basketball as well). If you have a combo (2-3) of Texas, Florida, Georgia, Alabama, Ohio, and NC (basketball) adopt this same rule and the NCAA kick them out the NCAA as we know it would be over. I think you are also underestimating how kids (especially from poor areas) would respond to being able to possibly make decent money while in college. Look at the amount of Florida and Texas kids that have left the state for a better shot at the NFL. You don’t think they wouldn’t do the same for the ability to make money as well? The citizens of college crazed states would hound politicians if the top tier recruits were continually leaving the state. It would be an easy win for politicians to pass these laws on top of extra tax revenue.

Has Pandora’s box been opened?? Quit likely, but remember this is just about them being able to use their likeness for a source of revenue. 

Wgat I find interesting is that many on this board thinks the free market is the answer for just about everything other than college athletics. 

Lets face it, it is big money. Almost everybody is making big money of the top tier players at the top tier universities. From head coaches being paid 7 figures, assistant coaches making high six figures, NCAA making millions, sports media making millions, announcers and analysts making thousands. The lowest paid of these are the players, the ones that we come to see. Sure a college education is fantastic but if they can make a couple extra grand making an appearance at a car dealership I don’t care.

Yeah, there were more fans in the stadium in the fourth quarter (cheering loudly when the Huskers made a play) than in the Shoe in the fourth quarter after a cupcake win.
