Agree on your take on offense. But not so much on the Badger defense. Both defenses made offenses look bad/mediocre would be my take.I will go back and watch the game again but I saw a LOT of things from both teams that Nebraska can exploit on both sides of the ball. Northwestern's offense is putrid and, of course, Wisconsin runs a 34 just like Nebraska. However, as I watched the game I wondered if Wisconsin maybe had a bit of a let down after the Michigan game and possibly took Northwestern too lightly.
Wisconsin looked very vulnerable when they were in zone cover defense. If Northwestern had an O-line, there were receivers running open all over the place. But Northwestern has a lot of problems.
The DBs grabbing jerseys seems to be the status quo this year for a lot of teams. My hope for tonight is the refs don't start calling it because our guys have been lucky so far.
Northwestern and Iowa always play the Badgers tough in grind it out, big boy, kill the clock, hard nosed football. On one play today Taylor was “stopped” for what looked like a couple of yard gain, the Wisky O-Line kept grinding and pushing until he had 12 yards and a first down. Impressive to say the least!
It looked like we can compete with both these teams if our D holds up.
