Following last week’s debacle at Illinois, Wisconsin fans are angry and embarrassed. Angry because Bucky had the look of a serious playoff contender. Embarrassed because UW suffered the biggest upset loss in the Big Ten since 1982. Specifically, accusations about peeking ahead to this week were plentiful. Ohio State was seen as the greatest opportunity for Whiskey to prove their betting on College Football worth. It could be said that this week’s matchup at the famed Horseshoe is even more meaningful as far as regaining lost respect. Problematic is the Buckeye speed and historic record in this series.
