Badgers prepare for Purdue on Halloween

As the Wisconsin football team prepares for its game against Purdue Saturday, head coach Bret Bielema said the team is excited to be back on the field and ready to play football again after the bye week.
Despite dropping the past two games, Bielema is happy with the team’s success over the course of the season, underscoring they are playing the 11th toughest schedule in the nation this year and there are seven teams in the top 25 with two or more losses and the combined record of the teams they have lost against is 14-2.
“You’re so disappointed in the back-to-back losses that you forget that you are a 5-2 team,” Bielema said. “Sometimes it’s good to be away from people who want to talk about the two losses rather than what you’ve done over the cumulative season.”
It will be good to see the Badgers win again after losing two in row. I actually just bought some Badger vs Purdue tickets for $30 each on theticketking.com. I thought that was an awesome deal. I look forward to seeing everybody in Madison this weekend for the game. GO BUCKY!!!!!!!!

Wisconsin Badgers Homecoming

An opportunity for students, alumni and the community to come together, the University of Wisconsin Homecoming 2009 began with kick-off events last Friday and will conclude with the Badger Huddle and football game against the Iowa Hawkeyes Saturday.
“The main vision of UW homecoming is the celebration of being a Badger,” said Whitney Bauer, Homecoming Committee executive co-chair.
Whether a current student or an alumnus, this year’s “Bucky’s Game Show Challenge” has offered many events to come together with other Badgers. One new event, the AV Club’s Jarringly Obscure Trivia, was the most successful so far this year, according to both Bauer and Karyn Christianson, Homecoming Committee executive co-chair. Many students attended in self-made groups, in addition to the established competing student groups.
I remember homecoming as a great time for all went I attended UW. The one thing that would top it all off would be a victory over the Iowa Hawkeyes.

Wisconsin Badgers Vs. Ohio State Buckeyes

Wisconsin football has made their second football scholarship offer for the recruiting class of 2011. The offer went to Jake Keefer, 6'4", 210 a TE/LB/ RB from Baldwin-Woodville H.S. The first offer went to Melvin Gordon from Kenosha Bradford, a 6'1". 180, Running Back. The Badgers were the first school to offer Keefer but he has had "interest" from Iowa, Minnesota, Illinois, Indiana, Notre Dame, Stanford and L.S.U. In his 6 games this year Keefer has gained 335 yards rushing and 6TDs and caught 16 passes for 261 yards and 3 TDs. At 6'4", he is too tall to be a college Running Back but he is projected at either DE or LB.
Despite the feeling among Wisconsin Badger Football fans that the team has a good chance to beat Ohio State. the Las Vegas odds-makers don't think so. The Buckeyes opened a 14.5 point favorite and today they are a 16 point favorite. Are they trying to lure Badger fans into betting on the game... do they know something other people don't? Well, instead of betting on it you can buy Wisconsin Badger Tickets from a reputable broker like Ticket King and go to the game.
Reports out of Columbus are that starting RG, Justin Boren and starting TE, Jake Ballard has come down with the flu today. There is no way of knowing if they will play Saturday, or if they can play, how effective they will be. But O.S.U. fans aren't concerned ... they feel their 2nd team is better than Wisconsin's first team! GO BUCKY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The Axe Stays Where It Belongs

Whether it is indoors or outdoors, in Minneapolis or Madison, in “The Bank” or the Dome, one thing remains the same: The rivalry between Wisconsin and Minnesota is as unpredictable as they come.
The Badgers and Gophers proved that once again Saturday in the 119th meeting between the two teams, as they battled for 60 minutes in a 31-28 victory for UW. It was a back-and-forth affair, which recently has become the norm in the rivalry.
“I thought it was supposed to be only in the Metrodome. I was hoping we were going to change that,” head coach Bret Bielema said. “I told Tim (Brewster) after the game ‘great environment.’ Every time we come up here it seems be one of these types of games.”
Much like the last few times the two teams have met, the game was decided on crucial turnovers and the outcome was not clear until Chris Borland’s fumble recovery in the final minute. Of course, there was a reason behind the close nature of the game Saturday, and it was not the newly-opened TCF Bank Stadium.
