I think Wisconsin would have beat Ohio state that year if we were able to get in to the BCS and had a rematch against them.  We had a bad first half and gave up 21 points, via missed tackles and blown coverage.  We shut them down the second half and they only scored 6 points.  Badgers lost 21-27 and we stillhad a chance to win it at the end with a TD.  It's very unlikely if we played them again that they would miss tackles like that and have blown coverages.  The badgers would have won convincingly if they played the first half like the 2nd half.

My son was so mad.  I told him them's the breaks.  Just enjoy the ride and try not to let not winning it all ruin your season cause there can only be one champion and it was still a really fun and exciting season.  Just to have the chance to go to the BCS was exciting.  A few years before that he saw the badgers lose to duke in the national championship for basketball.  That was a great season and a great game too.  Badgers had a chance to win it.

I think what would help a lot of programs is a 16 team playoff.  Wisconsin is playing 3 scrubs this year and does every year and almost all the major programs play at least 2 scrubs, if not 3.  Right now if you make the BSC and you make the championship game, your season is lengthened by 2 games and no one complains about that.  Making it a 16 team playoff would require 2 more additional games for such teams, but if the major programs got rid of 1 of those games against scrubs or 2 of the games against scrubs and you have a 16 team playoff ... it would only add one more game to the season  or not anymore if they got rid of two games against the scrubs..  The kids would enjoy it too having a chance to play for something more meaningful than just a conference championship, which is the most a lot of teams can realistically hope for.  Those games would be watched by so many people too ... I would watch teams that I don't even watch play usually, and so would a lot of kids too.  So it would give teams a lot more exposure.

It would also break the lock that it seems certain programs have on always going to the BSC because other teams are gonna get more exposure and you would see a lot more upsets of even the top teams cause to win it all they'd have to win 4 consecutive playoff games against what are all decent to really good teams, which is not easy.  That's a big part why going undefeated in the big ten is hard. There are enough really good teams that can beat you every Saturday and enough average teams that can beat even the top teams if they have a good Saturday and the top teams have a poor one.

Universities would make a boat load of money too.  The kids playing would love it.  If Inwas playing college ball I'd totally want that opportunity too.

You'd have Cinderella's every year too who squeak in as low playoff seeds and that usually aren't ranked that high and everyone would be pulling for them to win against the top seeds.

I think an 8 team playoff would be good too, but a 16 team playoff would be so much better and  give you the whole Cinderella dynamic and make it so a lot more programs could have aspirations of realistically making the playoffs.

I do not believe the bowl system is really effective anymore and very watered down. They gotta do something but think there hands are tied until at least mid decade 2020's....

I liked it better long ago, when they had scouts seaching for a bowl opponent than assign it to two conferences based on finishing position. A lot of teams do not try hard in some of those games, sees it as a demotion and star player ducks bowl to prepare for NFL draft. A lot of flaws there.

As a WVU fan, kinda tired of playing ACC opponents in bowls, that was what we were doing in old Big East...

They can just keep the bowls and have them be playoff games.  One of the problems is the rose bowl and the big ten and pac 12 committing to play in that.  They should just get rid of that.  That's from a bygone era.  Rose bowl can rotate as the championship game every four years as they do now and the other 3 years it can be a semi-final game.  I'm totally okay with ending the rose bowl tradition of hosting big ten and pac 12 if they expand the playoff.  If there is a 16 team playoff badgers will be in the playoff at lot of years. I fear they are just  gonna do an 8 team playoff and while that's an improvement a 16 team one would be ideal.

A ten game season with no bye would be better but with 16 teams in the conferences it's hard to do that.
As someone stated above don't play the cupcakes those 2 games , you then would have time for a bigger playoff field.

Antonio Brown is now being sued in federal court for raping his personal trainer:

Brown is accused of exposing himself to Taylor and kissing her without consent during a training visit in his Pittsburgh home in the first incident.

In the second incident, he allegedly masturbated behind her while the two were watching a church service on her iPad in his Miami home and ejaculated on her back.

She cut off contact with Brown after the 2017 incidents, but agreed to train him again after he assured her the sexual advances would stop, according to the lawsuit.

On May 20, 2018, the lawsuit alleges that Brown pushed Taylor face first into a mattress and “forcibly” raped her in his Miami home after a night out with friends. She screamed “no” and “stop,” but Brown ignored her pleas and penetrated her, according to the lawsuit"

***

What kind of person hangs out again or works with some guy after he busts a nut all over their back while they were watching tv and how does some guy jerk off right behind you such that he can shoot his load on your back and you don't know that he's jerking off before the grand finale?  This is something that only women will mostly do when a guy has $$.

Not saying he didn't **** her and if he did he should be punished, but maybe part of the me too movement should have involved women expecting better of themselves and should involve telling women that they shouldn't hang out with men like that even if they have $ and even if they can advance your career.  Do you think I'd let some dude **** me so I could get a raise or a job?  Eff no.  Do you think I'd let some dude jerk off on my back for $ or a job?  Eff no.  She seems like the type that would be bffs with a convicted serial rapist (provided he had $$ and As Epstein shows lots of women will in fact associate with total scum and even enable them provided they have $$) and then would act surprised when when he rapes her.  She is not a sympathetic victim at all from the facts that have been released so far.

A good rule of thumb for decreasing one's chances of getting raped ... don't hang out with guys who have already previously sexually assaulted you.  At some point yeah you are responsible to some extent for knowingly putting yourself in that situation. If you are gonna knowingly risk your safety and dignity cause you want to hang out with a guy just cause he has  money or can get you a job, don't expect sympathy from me when something bad happens.

I'm sure there was a lot of that with Weinstein too.  A lot of these women I am sure knew or heard of what he was and they knowingly put themselves in that situation cause they wanted acting roles and what not.  There are plenty of other decent men and women in the industry I am sure who could have given them acting roles too but some guy wanting some azz in exchange for a role is a short cut.  Then they play the victim.  WTF?  There is something wrong with this whole situation on both sides.

I guarantee if Antonio Brown were just some dude with a bus pass, that woman would have had nothing to do with him, especially if he shot his load all over her back.

Biggest h0s are walk-in thru the mo fo'ing neighborhood.  Eddie Griffin was spot on:

https://youtu.be/6a8XddPXV5o

This is how A LOT of women are raised.  Sorry to say it's true.  That 50 shades shyte, if the dude managed a McDonalds and had a sex dungeon in his basement and looked exactly the same and acted exactly the same as the lead character, it wouldn't work for women.  Maybe there should be a let's not have two different standards for men depending on if they have money or not movement.

Then, these activists go around spewing this "rich, powerful, men" are all the problem narrative.  No the problem is that's what b1tches crave.  There is a reason Cinderella married a prince.  There is a reason 50 shades dude doesn't manage a McDonald's and live in a one story modest ranch with a sex dungeon in his basement.  The reason for this is women and their desires.

Then they try blaming all men too for their desires subjecting them to perverts and try telling us we need to change the culture.  Okay, let's do it, bu, lets start with women.  Let's see Hollywood actress start dating and marrying McDonald's managers and guys with bus passes.  Failing that a lot of rich powerful men will be happy to take advantage of women who chase $$.  Not everyone is a decent person and frankly people who crave power inherently tend to not be nice people. 

Its a false narrative.

The movie Pretty Woman.  If Richard Gere were a CPA making 80 k a year in it and he fell in love and rescued a hOOker from her h00ker life, that wouldn't be good enough for women.  The movie would never be made.  Dude could look exactly the same ... act exactly the same, but if drove a Toyota Corolla and lived a normal life, no way that movie gets made.

If i were in private practice advising a client and he shot his load on my back, I'd drop them as a client, at the very least.  I would never be like oh, I'll keep working with you if you promise not to shoot your load on my back again, lmfao.  The whole thing is so absurd.

Hollywood Brown has got someone some points!

I traded Antonio Brown Saturday night along with K. Drake for Joe Mixon and Jarvis Landry.  Patriots just cut Antonio Brown today.  Best trade ever, although Mixon has had a rough start to season.

Wisconsin just made Michigan state look like a cupcake team.  38-0.  4th shutout in 6 games.  Their defense has scored more TDs than they have given up. 

Ohio State game in 2 weeks should be a good one.

Scored more points than they have given up, if you count the extra point kicks after their TDs.
