The Badgers went to the desert and went toe-to-toe with a very good
Arizona State team and then after getting a big defensive stop, Joel
Stave led Wisconsin into game-winning position for a chip shot FG.
According to coach Gary Andersen He did as they practice...centering the
ball so the refs can set it quickly and they can spike it. The
official, for what ever reason, claimed the ball was live and Arizona
State fell on it. Game over. The PAC-12 will do a cursory review of the
officiating crew...maybe give them a slap on the wrist and claim that
human error will always be a factor in games. That is true...but in the
big money world of D-1 football, when an error like that can mean a
difference of millions of dollars depending on what bowl you get to play
in...you would hope that this officiating crew would face at least a
loss of a game check or the loss of a chance to work a bowl game. I'm
not holding my breath. It seems when a Badger state team goes west of the Rockies, chances are good they get screwed.
Borland has the proper perspective...he said the Badgers will look
ahead and not let that defeat ruin the season. The badgers are at Camp
Randall against Purdue this Saturday. The Boilermakers looked good
against Notre Dame.
Rodgers showed why he is the best QB in the game. 480 yards and four
touchdowns all with a stiff neck. It tied a franchise mark for passing
yardage and their overall offensive yardage was 2nd in Packer history.
Too bad about Eddie Lacy and his concussion but James Starks took
advantage of a chance to play and came up big. The defense also brought
the pressure on RG3. An all around good day.
forget to join us for the Green & Gold Legends Lunch this Wednesday
at the Great Dane. You can meet former Packer legends like Dave
Robinson, Marv Fleming, Bob Skroronski, Fuzzy Thurston, Tom Brown, Doug
Hart and more...get your tickets now at the WSAU Studios in Wausau or
Gomez is having a spectacular year for the Brewers. He robbed another
home run yesterday...his fifth of the year...more than anyone has had in
10 years major league baseball. If he doesnt win a Gold Glove this
season they should just retire the award. And it was another walk-off
win for the Crew on a Sean Halton homer. They start a series with the
The high school football season is getting interesting and we'll know more this week. Is Wausau West for real?...they face a tough test at Appleton North. DC Everest hosts Appleton West who almost came back against Wausau East last week. The Terrors have some offensive weapons and a young quarterback who is getting better. The Lumberjacks will look to make it 2 in a row hosting Appleton East. Stevens Point will look to rebound from 2 upset losses as they return home to face Oshkosh North.
Happy Birthday to one of the best hoopsters of all-time Elgin Baylor who turns 79 and the best Brewer player in history Robin Yount who is 58.
Songs of The Day (from my I-pod)
Maybe I Know-Lesley Gore (1964) She cut some perfect pop records in the early and mid-60's. She not lip synching here.
Me & Bobby McGee-Janis Joplin (1971) She sang the hell out of this Kristopherson classic...probably the definitive version of this tune. It went #1 after her death.
