Forget their record: The wrecking-ball Badgers attack was plenty legit.

Go Badgers!

Wish 11 of those points had gone to the 5 losses, and we'd be undefeated at this point. Great, great win for the Badgers. If we play like that, Bielema will win his first Rose Bowl.

MN will never be able to compete with the Badgers again. Good luck to the MN kids with the vision and drive to compete for Roses instead of rusted out mufflers!

Refs handed the game to wisconsin. Every play that got outside (there were a LOT) there were 2-3 badgers getting away with holds. # 80 of Nebraska threw a TKO block (100% perfectly legal) and was flagged for hitting a wisconsin player too hard, i guess. That took points off the board. Awhile later a wisconsin did a MMA pick up and body slam of the Nebraska QB with no call. I was shocked he was not tossed from the game let alone not getting a flag. If the packers are allowed to hold like the badgers did last night they could score 40 on the ViKINGs today.

Lol! It's gonna be fun seeing WI become the first Big Ten team to embarrass itself three straight times at the Rose Bowl! With Bielema coaching this team it'll always underachieve and be a 2nd tier program. Also a shout out to the fair weather Becky fans who refused to go and see WI play in half empty stadium...your fan base is worse than the Gophers, lol!

I'm not a 'Sconnie fan ... but honestly! After watching 50+ years of college football I really didn't mind seeing the 'Huskers' take a good swift kick between the front pockets. For years that program ran up the score on weak sister opponents. I remember an 84-10 (12 maybe?) whipping they laid on a very weak Gopher club years ago. I do understand the philosophy of not taking the foot off the gas pedal - but if a club is ahead by 30+ points in the 3rd quarter? Maybe college football could institute a rule change for 'running time' so teams could comfortably play some subs!

Sorry; didn't mean to ruin your "LOL". And regarding the 1/2 empty stadium and the poor Badger fan base - there were TWO teams playing yesterday, right?

Fouledanchor - don't blame Nebraska on your fan bases lack of enthusiasm. Goes to show just how fair weather Becky fans are! Thanks for clarifying that Becky won't be the first to lose 3 straight Rose Bowls...Go Stanford!

re: g5thistime - I watched the SEA vs GB Monday Night game and agree that officials can sometimes have a hand in the final outcome, but do you really think the officials turned their heads on 10 touchdowns?

The Big 10 is a complete joke. Neither the Buckeyes or Badgers would go .500 in the SEC. The fact the Badgers are in the Rose Bowl is laughable. They would lose to a 4th place SEC team like Florida by 30. I hope the frauds known as Nebraska drop out of the top 25. 13 ranked team gives up 70pts to a 7-5 team is comical.
