representative if that conference gets someone in the playoffs? I don’t watch too much college football from up there but hasn’t Wisconsin looked very strong?

Ratings.


Wisconsin doesn’t have any fans. Ohio state has millions

If the news is no longer honest why would you expect espn to be?

Because again the Cheese heads have an incomplete team and cannot throw the ball and any decent defense will slow their run. Therefore, they are overrated.

OSU has had the best team in that conference since the 1950s.

Because Ohio State recruits better and has better athletes.. You never know though who is better.

The big win over Michigan(meat-chicken) isn't really that impressive when you consider Michigan had no business beating Army. The Black Knights are good I know; but a true #7 team isn't struggling to score on Army. They don't play triple option defense; just offense. Ball control HRT that's how they play defense with their offense! Blah, Michigan was supposed to be the #7 team in the nation and was at home! No way they should have struggled to only score 14 points!

So, their offense is broken! Which puts their defense on the field for a bunch of plays. Wisconsin RB Taylor is a beast! And will make you pay if you give him opportunity after opportunity after opportunity. Over commit and have " a booty secondary" and the Badgers expose you.

But, what if you A. have a dynamic offense. B. have a near NFL grade secondary. Then what Badgers?

I think Ohio State or 0 31 0 St. is still the favorite to win the Big 10 by a mile.

the hairballs had five days to prepare for a team, that everyone in the country knows, will run the ball 95% of the time. Regardless of the down, distance or field position they are going to run the ball.

Plus the wisky DBs are very short. A decent passing team will expose them. Michigan finally had success by just throwing the ball downfield and let the WRs out jump the DBs.


They beat all their FCS opponents by 60 points in September***

Wisconsin is a one-dimensional team. They don't throw the ball. It's 2019. Not 1980.

Everyone else in the Big Ten is average at best. Ohio State doesn't break a sweat until the playoffs.

Wisconsin beat a overrated team the coots recently beat so I'm not sold.

Because the 031o State band does some great animated images when they march, and people hope to see their halftime show.

It's always the same thing with Wisconsin. Gotta prove two things: (1) They can pass the ball when their run game isn't working and (2) their DBs can keep up with a good QB throwing to speedy receivers.

Ohio State appears to be way ahead of the rest of the Big Ten. I think they can easily beat Wisconsin twice and lock in a CFP spot as the #3 seed. Penn State is the only other possible legit challenge and OSU plays them at home (like they do Wisconsin).

Here's hoping that Wisconsin crashes the CFB party.
A 1 loss OSU only helps keep an extra SEC team out (or at least fuels debate)
