Re: Bielema's comment, all of us say "du-ah"!
To those of us who saw Wilson at NCSU, he is a definitve catch for Wisky. This sucks for their opponents. Wilson is comparable to Troy Smith in skills and leadership.
Big questions: how will he fare against much faster and bigger DL's and LB's.
Possible answer: Wisky always has a tremendous OL and very good RB's.

This could be a good thing for Wisconsin this year. The only question is how much does Wilson fit into their offense with only a couple months to work with the team? Wilson is very different from what Wisconsin is used to as a QB. He is a run/throw QB that can make plays with his arm and feet. Wisconsin is more of a run-oriented offense with a pocket QB to throw when needed. They have one of if not THE best RB tandems in the country right now. Now they pull in a QB that wants to get some action and have a chance at going pro. How do the coaches handle it? The last thing they want to do is move away from their run heavy offense. Look at where that got them in the Rose Bowl against TCU. No matter what, it's going to be tough to work an offense out in a couple months with a brand new guy on campus that expects to get respect, and someone is going to be unhappy.

I heard that Wisconsin was going to deal with the new QB situation by bringing some OSU recruits, just like MSU, UM and Penn State seem to be doing. Looks like the pendulum is swinging.

It was a joke "numbnuts" and everyone who does not "bleed scarlet and gray" laughed their ass of when they read it.

Like I said, it was a nice try. But when you use a joke that has been spouted 10,000 times over the last four months, I don't think there were many people laughing. Just makes you too late to the party.

When they stopped laughing at my joke, they began laughing at you. Have a great season!

Is it true that Ohio State is the most hated team in the world of college football? This is a serious question; I've heard, read it more than once. Thanks
