Win Big Or Go Home

While I understand that the Wisconsin Football program isn't Ohio State or Alabama.....BUT 9th? SERIOUSLY? THAT'S where they rank, undefeated even, in the first release of the College Football Playoff rankings!


I've been telling you that style points matter and if Wisconsin EVER want's to really be respected and considered a true contender, then they have to start beating the hell out of some of these soft teams on their schedule or go back to taking your chances with the big boys. Notre Dame is a good start but that needs to happen more often than not....and year in and year out.

If this is Paul Chryst's style, and he doesn't want to be "disrespectful" to other teams and coaches by drilling them into the ground, then be happy with a New Years Day bowl game, some $$ coming in and don't ever look for "big time" recruits seek out your program.  Don't complain, year in and year out, that you can't land a big time quarterback or wide outs....you know, specialty and speed guys.

Be happy with the Western Division of the Big Ten .... for that will always be the bar.

Winning isn't everything.....it's beating the @#$% out of lesser teams that matter in the committee's eyes.

NOW....IF Wisconsin wins out and wins the Big Ten Championship game, there will still be heavy consideration for the Badgers to make it to the Final Four (at least I can't imagine that they would NOT be included).

I know, I know that there is still a lot of football left to be played, I agree.  Tuesday night's initial poll was nothing more than a slap in the face (via a wake-up call) to the Badgers and their head coach.   If you don't pound Indiana, beat Iowa and Michigan and crush Minnesota for the right to keep Paul Bunyan's Axe, then even WITH a Big Ten Title, you still may not get in. 

Wake Up Wisconsin!
