Let's see: Bielema fakes the punt with the game on the line and his team behind by 6, UW goes on to a 7 minute drive to eat up most of the clock and the Badgers win.
Contrast: Jim Tressel punts the ball with 6+ minutes to go and down 10 points giving the ball back to an offense his defense has not been able to stop most of the day, thereby giving his team no chance to draw closer.
OSU was counting on Iowa to beat UW and MSU in order to get back in the race for the Roses. Iowa had to beat UW and give them a second conference loss in order for Ohio State to have any chance to win the league and go to the Rose Bowl. But Kirk Ferentz pulled a Jim Tressel and kicked a FG just moments after an interception deep in UW territory keeping UW in the game. Even if Iowa beats Sparty, OSU will be in the unenviable position of co-champs if they win out having lost to UW-edge Badgers.

I was thinking pretty much the same thing when iowa failed to get a TD on that turnover. And don't think for a second that bilema is loved by those iowa fans just because he played there. His staff does have guts and it shows with calls like that with the game on the line. Nice dirty blocking technique too by the wisc fullback on iowa's best defensive lineman. Does anyone know if the newspaper that covers iowa football is on Topix?
