Just got back from the game. Mertz continues to be so incredibly unimpressive, it's surprising they don't have better options than him to run that offense.So glad he's Wiscy's qb
Ferguson was probably their best weapon this season, and I thought he was in the bowl game as well. I saw him go out early in the second half and I don't think he came back (?), and the Badger offense struggled to move the ball in a big way without him. He's a SR and I would guess he'll move on because he's a draftable talent, hopefully he does.
Rutgers will F up our B1G undefeated conference bowl record. IF Rutgers win by some miracle, then Penn State may ruin it for us.

Amusing side note; guy sitting behind me was a professional poker player/gambler and told me he put a "4-figure" bet on Wisconsin at (-7.5), and the guy who gave him the tickets for the game bet the game at Wisconsin (-6.5), and the game actually closed at WI (-8). 4-figures doesn't have to be huge, could have just been a dime bet, but I took his comment to mean he might have had at least a couple dimes on it.
First quarter I thought he was making easy money and I was wishing I had bet Wisky (which would have made me a little nauseous), but I didn't have any action on the game. By sometime in the 2nd quarter, I kept telling him "this game has backdoor cover written all over it", and he just kept laughing.
I bailed out early but thought about that poor bastard all the way home, likely getting beat by the hook.
I’m going to cheer for Rutgers like they are our beloved Gophers. Good for them if they keep it close. But what if they win? Great for them and the B1G.
I am definitely cheering against the lion cubs and hope they get blown out. The B1G front office will deserve any fallout from appointing them to the Outback Bowl.
