    Ohio State: Wisconsin?

    Whenever I try to envision how the Bucks will break out this season, I can't help but see the style of last year's Wisconsin team with a better, more opportunistic defense. The pundits put them and Michigan as pre-season favorites, but can't we potentially do what Wisky does with the power run game better than them?

    I was lucky enough to get Wisky when OSU sent me my alum ticket application... now it remains to be seen if I actually get the tickets (i'll probably get screwed and get YSU).

    I just don't see it happening. This is a team that has repeatedly outplayed Michigan and Ohio State only to lose most of the games. Having to play both teams back to back will break them if nothing else does.

    Clearly our toughest home game this year...not only because it's Wisconsin who plays us tough on our home field, but also because it's a week after our playing at Crappy Valley.

    I'm perhaps overly optomistic this season. I think the Bucks will be just fine against Wisconsin and Penn State. Washington is still recovering from the Neuheisal fiasco... and if Willingham couldn't win at Notre Dame what made anyone think he could win in Seattle?

    I wasn't this optomistic when the class of 08 took off for the NFL, but everyother program has problems and I think this team will be ready when November 17 rolls around. It's another 50 day wait till the bowls that has me most concerned. Not good for the Bucks, not good for the league.

    I agree with you Cinci. I will believe they lose when I see it and until then they are going to win them all.!

    Wisconsin won't be ignored this preseason
    Angelique S. Chengelis / The Detroit News


    It might be hard to ignore Wisconsin this season.
    Last year the Badgers were left off the preseason top-25 polls. It rubbed many of the players the wrong way.
    "When we weren't ranked last year, that was fueling the fire for us to grow stronger," said Jason Chapman, Wisconsin's junior defensive tackle. "I don't want people to think that since we're ranked that we're going to let up. We're going to keep the same mentality we did last year."

    Anyone have any ideas how teams like Wisky do it?

    Can you imagine the uproar and gnashing of teeth if OSU landed only 6 athletes rated 4 stars are better in any given class? Wisky has only landed six in their prior FOUR classes combined.

    Yet here they are highly rated nationally and in the Big Ten. And it isn't just the cyclical thing where a large number of seniors come together at the right moment. Wisky only has 5 Seniors among their starting 22.

    I wont argue they may be a bit overrated - but they ARE good.

    Is it the Cheese?
