Purdue vs. Wisconsin

    This could be the Big Ten Championship game this weekend. My question is do any of you think either of these teams are good enough to win a National Championship.

    I would say no, but if Wisky wins this game vs. Purdue I would say they have a great chance.

    Their remaining schedule:

    (h) Northwestern
    (h) Minnesota
    @ Michigan state
    @ Iowa

    I don't see a loss in the bunch with Minnesota being home, and I don't think Iowa can get it done?

    Purdue would still have

    (h) Michigan
    @ Northwestern
    @ Iowa
    (h) Ohio State
    (h) Indiana

    A little tougher but not impossible

    I don't think either can win the NC, but either could win the Big 10. I'll give the winner of the game a 50/50 chance to win the Big 10

    Over the last few years Wisconsin always loses a game that they should win... usually a non confernce game but also some games in the Big ten. I think they will lose to either MSU or Minnesota. Purdue and Minnesota are the toughest games for them the rest of the way.

    Purdue won't win a NC with that defense. Orton is bound to have a bad game and I don't think their defense can bail out their offense if that happens.

    On Wisconsin!! If Wisky wins this game, I think you've got to give them the inside track to the Big Ten title. Beyond that, anything is possible.

    Purdue would have to win this one going away before I'd be ready to annoint them as likely champs. They're awfully good, but their schedule is awfully tough.

    Well...I think if that Stocco kid plays as well as he did against us.. Wisconsin Will Win...

    I'd say Wisconsin has about a 50% chance to run the table if they win... and Purdue about 30% if they win... As far as winning the whole thing... You'd have to see who they would play... though I's say Purdue has the better chance at gettingin the MNC game if there were 3 unbeatens... They've got the Heisman Candidate and the Sexy Offense.

    IMO Wisconsin's game (run AD and play defense) is best suited to win the B10. Purdue's passing stats will fade as the we get into November and the elements become more of a factor. Ross Ade has open spots in the field that allow the wind into the stadium. Wind is the biggest enemy to the passing game. Assuming Wisconsin can get past Purdue, they have the best chance of running the table.

    Purdue, with Orton's star power and the wide open offense will be the more popular team with the networks and the pollsters. I prefer Wisconsin's style of play. They win by dominating in the trenches and don't depend on precision execution by the QB and receivers.

    Wisconsin looks like Ohio State 2002. A lot of people are saying they are good enough to win the Big 10, but not the national title. That sounds familiar. People are also saying that Wisconsin always seems to lose a game that they shouldn't. Again...that's what was said of the Buckeyes in 2002. Wisconsin and Aurburn are the two teams in the country that have impressed me the most.

    Purdue struggled against Penn State, and gave up 500 yards of offense to Notre Dame.

    Orton will not complete all of those long sexy touchdown passes against Wisky's defense like he did against the Domers.

    Wisky 24-17 and Barry's is on to his last Rose Bowl before riding off into the sunset as an AD.

    What's crazy about this year's Wisky team is that I was one of the voices that said Barry couldn't be a successful coach and AD at the same time.

    Either I'm proved way wrong, or the rest of Wisky's athletic department is in shambles.

    Man, Both Purdue's and Wisconsin's schedules look favorable..... I think its possible but alot of teams would have to screw up big time for them to get a ticket to the big show.... I'm going for Purdue in this game I hate Wisconsin.

    wisconsin is stout.....they are just the type of team alvarez loves....they are beyond experienced.....

    i think they win this weekend and i think they could beat anyone in the country right now.....

    the best dline in the country...a great secondary...a great offensive line, the fullback us buckeyes would kill for and great running backs....adequate receivers and an improving qb....

    throw a tournament up right now...and barring injuries....wisky beats everyone....period...

    Auburn? Oklahoma? Akron?

    No way Wisky beats Oklahoma right now. I would love to see the match up of Adrien Peterson against the Wisconsin D line though.

    I agree that they are for real... and I don't think Oklahoma is unbeatable. I just don't think Alverez is a good enough coach to lead this team to an undefeated season and a chance for a NC. He had his run of Rose Bowls in the late 90's which was impressive but over the last few years they have just dropped too many games that they should have won. To be a great coach Alverez needs to step away from the AD position and just worry about football. If I'm wrong... so be it. I lived up there for 6 years... it was very easy to keep up on the Badgers and Alverez has just not impressed me lately.
