    True. Some for a few years and some for decades. Still on the upswing for Wisconsin(I hope)

    I had an issue with that too. Although I agree that Wisky could be a better team than last year and still lose 3 games. I still stand with my 11 wins prediction.

    It’s not like they are in the East or a challenging OOC where they could be better than what their record shows. Going 9-3 likely keeps them out of the CCG and absolutely would be a failure of a season given their situation.

    Hornibrooks receivers should be much improved over last year. They were all very young last season iirc. Couple that with the running game and that offensive line and I don't think he is the liability he has been

    May not be a liability anymore, but he’s not going to get you a championship

    Their defense may take a bit of a step back but their offense should be improved to even that out. I could easily see them being undefeated going into the ccg

    I don't see much change. Very solid team but does't have the horses to beat 3 elite teams in a row.

    Their only shot is their incoming QB recruit becoming a Heisman contending QB.

    I don't see them winning a Natty, but this could be their best shot at getting by the East

    When you have been a Wisconsin fan for as long as I have(1959, when I was in the University hospital), just being in the conversation is a lot of fun. We are one score away from winning each of the last 2 CCGs. That is the next step. Going to be another fun season either way.

    This is true. They've had some good teams in the last few years. I hope Ohio State gets to play Wisconsin in the BIG Championship game.

    Good old "Wisconsin football is inferior"? God, it was almost worth losing to Ohio St last year just to get rid of that fuck. Every time he posted, he managed to embarrass me simply through loose association.

    A lot of sports writers have Wiscy as a legit CFP contender.

    Their team sets up for it great with schedule and personnel.

    Odds are they stumble along the way.
