PJ Hill may be out.

Bret Bielema is a football coach, not a doctor.
The Wisconsin football coach misdiagnosed running back P.J. Hill’s injury following Saturday’s game against Indiana, saying Hill had suffered a bruised foot, but would still likely play this upcoming weekend against top-ranked Ohio State.
Bielema, it turns out, was mistaken. Hill’s bruise instead is on his left leg, almost exactly in the same place it was broken two years ago. All of which spells disaster for the Badgers. I think Bucky is not going to have a fun trip to Columbus. GO BUCKY!!!!!!!!!!

Freakfest and Homecoming all in one day.

On the heels of an inspired performance in all aspects of the game, Wisconsin will work to keep momentum in its favor when Indiana comes to town Saturday.
The Badgers (7-2, 2-2 Big Ten) are set to face the Hoosiers (5-3, 2-3 Big Ten) on Homecoming and Halloween weekend.
In last year’s game against Illinois on “Freakfest,” the relevant boos and scares were on hand as Wisconsin stumbled out to a 21-3 defeat. Rest assured, according to linebacker Jonathan Casillas, it shouldn’t happen again. I hope everything goes smooth for the Badger football team and for everybody attending the State street festivities. Please remember that you don't need to get tear gassed to have a memorable night. GO BUCKY!!!!!!!!!!

Down The Tubes???

It is too early to say the Badger Football season is down the tubes with back to back losses at Illinois and Penn State, but it is not too early to say the Badgers are in serious trouble. It looks like our defense is completely shredded. We can't stop anyone. By the way did I mention the running game that Northern Illinois has. The player the Badgers need to watch out for is Justin Anderson.
The now-featured running back for Northern Illinois, is hardly a household name, yet he has rushed for more yards (868) than Heisman candidates Rashard Mendenhall of Illinois (839), Darren McFadden of Arkansas (822) and Ray Rice of Rutgers (818), not to mention Wisconsin’s own P.J. Hill (825).
What’s more impressive is that the third-year sophomore has essentially amassed this total in a mere 5 1/2 games. When junior tailback Montell Clanton suffered a torn ACL in the second game of the season against Southern Illinois, the Huskies looked to Anderson to take the reins of the running game. In the five games since, Anderson has averaged 157 yards, while scoring four touchdowns (he had three touchdowns in the Southern Illinois game as well).

Badgers Have Reached The Crossroads

You know it’s bad when a head coach gets asked whether or not the season is over after his first loss in almost 13 months. But it’s also hard to blame fans for panicking when they know two true freshmen will be lining up at wide receiver next week, offensive players are falling faster than the fall leaves, and the defense would be hard pressed to tackle a four-year-old running the spread offense. Lets hope that Bucky can salvage their season. GO BUCKY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
