    Badger Bulletin 2012

    Wisconsin had the living daylights scared out of themselves with a close 20-17 win over a bad Eastern Michigan team on Saturday.

    Facing a 17-13 deficit with just 52 seconds remaining, Wisconsin quarterback Curt Phillips completed two passes to get into the end zone and avoid what would have been an embarrassing loss in their opener. The tally came on a 43-yard reception to sophomore Eric Evans, who took in a ball on a slant pattern and outran the Eagle defense to score.

    The Badger offense sputtered most of the day, converting only 3-of-10 third downs and struggled to run the ball in second half, mustering just 34 yards.

    Rushing
    Wisconsin 39-136
    Eastern Michigan 15- (-19)

    Passing
    Wisconsin 9-13-159 (0 int.)
    Eastern Michigan 20-31-261 (0 int.)

    Wisconsin Notables
    - Wisconsin LE Brenden Bowman had five of the Badgers six sacks
    - HB Erik Smith carried 19 times for 104 yards

    LSU 13, Wisconsin 7

    Wisconsin dropped a 13-7 decision to LSU Monday night at Camp Randall Stadium to fall to 1-1 on the young season.

    After the Badgers took a late third quarter lead on a Curt Phillips 8-yard touchdown pass to Kevin Appleton, LSU quickly regained the lead back with a bulldozing 36-run from Tiger back Michael Ford, who had 146 yards on 23 carries. Ford and the Tiger running game were very effective in controlling the ball and running the clock in the fourth quarter.

    Note- I saved a couple of highlights. If someone can point me to how to do the youtube embed on these posts, I will put them in.

    for youtube videos.

    once you have the video uploaded on youtube.

    on the right side of the video you will see a box labeled embed.

    right mouse click in the box and it should select everything in the box. right click again and copy the stuff in that box.

    go back to your thread post and where you want the video select the youtube wrap box on the far right of the msg toolbar.

    select or move the mouse cursor in between those youtube labels and paste what you copied off of youtube.

    you can preview to see but it should be a video in that spot on your post. I just did my first one yesterday and at first i only had the link until i figured it out.

    Thanks, it was fun, despite the outcome. Getting out of some habits from playing ranked games online will come with time, but the sim method is definately the way to go. I screwed up once (as BCduggan pointed out to me about sprinting the QB out of the pocket when not facing pressure) and I appreciate his patience. If anyone playing sees me doing something I shouldn't, feel free to let me know.

    Here is the highlight of the winning LSU touchdown.

    It was a great game and you played really well. Still don't know how Ford escaped that tackle.

    Didn't your starting QB get hurt and miss at least the 4th quarter?

    Thanks- My QB was hurt in the first quarter but did return sometime in the second. Whoever number 97 is for Wisconsin needs to learn how to wrap up.

    Good game by you too, hopefully I can get a return trip to Baton Rouge in 2013

    Wisconsin 21, Utah 7

    One week after a tough home loss to a powerful LSU team, Wisconsin rebounded with a 21-7 non-conference win over Utah in Salt Lake City. Running back Erik Smith led a Badger rushing attack which pounded out 190 yards on the ground and had a 17:20-6:40 advantage in time of possession.

    The Badgers got on the scoreboard first with a 14-play scoring drive in first quarter, with just one play coming through the air. Utah answered in second quarter as James Wynn connected with Billy Warren from three yards to tie the score at seven. Badger quarterback Curt Phillips then led Wisconsin on another scoring drive, capped off by a seven yard toss to Eric Evans for a touchdown and a 14-7 lead, which they carried into halftime.

    After another Phillips touchdown pass, this time to tight end Jake Byrne from three yards out, pushed the lead to 21-7, the Badger defense held on to preserve the road victory. Wisconsin forced two Ute fumbles in the final stanza to thwart any comeback attempt. The Badgers improve to 2-1 while Utah dropped their first game of the season to slip to 2-1.

    Rushing
    Wisconsin 46 carries for 190 yards
    Utah 16 carries for 90 yards

    Passing
    Wisconsin
    9 of 12 for 96 yards (no int)
    Utah
    9 of 11 for 89 yards (no int.)

    Notable
    Wisconsin 8 of 11 3rd down conversions

    Wisconsin 21, Illinois 14

    In the Big Ten opener for both teams, Wisconsin hung on to a 21-14 triumph over Illinois Thursday night.

    After Wisconsin’s Erik Smith fumbled with three minutes remaining, the Illini had life and an opportunity to send the game to overtime. The ensuing Illinois drive was stopped at the Wisconsin three yard line with free safety Kevin Claxton’s fourth down tackle of Illinois’ wideout Al Jenkins.

    The Badgers were then able to run out the remaining 50 seconds to improve to 3-1 (1-0).

    The Badger offense struggled most of the day, due in most part to quarterback Curt Phillips’ 11 of 23 passing effort. Claxton led all defenders with ten tackles.

    Third Ranked Penn State slips by Wisconsin

    Penn State dramatically avoided an upset bid in defeating Wisconsin 38-31. After a Badger field goal tied the game at 31 with just 38 seconds left, the Nittany Lions answered in a big way to prevent overtime. Penn State quarterback Matt McGloin found Mitch Wade behind the Wisconsin defense who then took the ball to the end zone for the score.

    [YOUTUBE]<object width="560" height="340"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/xRlPKXuhU7A&hl=en_US&fs=1&"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/xRlPKXuhU7A&hl=en_US&fs=1&" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="560" height="340"></embed></object>[/YOUTUBE]

    The 69-yard tally moves Penn State to 5-0 while the Badgers dropped to 3-2. McGloin was outstanding and riddled the Wisconsin secondary, totaling 366 yards and four touchdowns. The loss was the second for the Badgers to a team in the top five. Wisconsin dropped a 13-7 decision to #4 LSU in September and faces two more ranked teams in the next two weeks, #11 Ohio State followed by #2 Notre Dame.

    Notre Dame 34, Wisconsin 28

    For the second week in row, an upset opportunity slips out of the grasp of the Wisconsin Badgers. The Irish played like their lofty status in the polls by using a nice balance in the second half, outscoring Wisconsin 24-7. A fourth quarter pick-six by Notre Dame's Shawn Fitpatrick was the key play for the top ranked Irish, who overcame an 11-point halftime defecit. The Badgers also surrendered an 11-point lead in the loss last week to Ohio State, when the Buckeyes scooped up a fourth quarter fumble and scored the decisive touchdown. Wisconsin fell to 3-4, with all four losses by a touchdown or less.

    Wisconsin-Ohio State highlight

    Here is the last gasp for the Badgers in their 39-35 loss to the Buckeyes a couple of weeks ago. On fourth and seven with less than a minute remaining, Badger quarterback Curt Phillips seems to have found a hole in the zone but #3 of the Buckeyes just gets enough of piece of it to preserve the victory.

    Wisconsin- Notre Dame highlight

    With the Irish holding a 24-21 lead in the fourth quarter, the Badgers moved into Notre Dame territory with a chance at the lead. Wisconsin quarterback Curt Phillips makes a fatal flaw and throws into traffic where Irish corner Shawn Fitzpatrick nabs the pick and takes it back for what would be the deciding touchdown.

    Wisconsin 31, Northwestern 28

    Another week and it must be another nail-bitter for the Wisconsin Badgers. After Northwestern tied the game on a Evan Watkins touchdown pass and ensuing two point conversion tied the game at 28, Badgers quarterback Curt Phillips moved Wisconsin 43 yards in 46 seconds to set up Ryan Washington’s game winning 35-yard field goal as time expired. The 31-28 triumph evens the Badgers at 4-4 (2-3 Big Ten) and keeps their bowl hopes afloat.

    After losing running back Erik Smith for most of the game because of an injury, Phillips picked up the slack with his best performance of the year. The senior quarterback was 22 of 28 for 305 yards and three touchdowns. Sophomore John Cook caught eight passes for 117 yards while tight end Jake Byrne had two touchdown receptions.

    Despite statistically dominating the Wildcats (21 first downs to 12, 408 total yards to 271), Wisconsin let Northwestern in the game allowing a key play at the end of the first half. Holding a 14-3 lead, the Badgers sent out the kicking team to attempt a Washington field goal. The kick was short and the fielded by the Wildcats’ Martin Bayless, who then took the ball 107 yards and the touchdown. The return is now an NCAA record.

    Too bad they only come through about half the time, the CPU quarterbacks have lit me up the last two games (Northwestern and Penn State). My young secondary is starting to show.

    I saved five highlights but for some reason only one was able to be uploaded to the EA servers. I deleted a group of highlights from an earlier game but it still did not work. I give it try again later.

    Wisconsin 42, Michigan State 0

    After a season full of nail bitters, the Wisconsin Badgers finally had a chance to breathe easy in a contest. Four Spartan turnovers aided the Badgers in a 42-0 triumph over Michigan State. Freshman Badgers corner Teddy Tate accounted for a pair of the takeaways with interceptions that he converted into pick-sixes. Quarterback Curt Phillips threw for and ran for a touchdown in the romp which gets Wisconsin bowl eligible. Running back Eric Smith went over 1000 yards for the season and also had a pair of scores. Six recruits in for a visit saw Wisconsin completely shut down MSU, who gained just 158 total yards.

    The Badger defense failed to show up in a 47-36 loss to Iowa. Hawkeye quarterback James Vanderberg threw for 285 yards in the first half, which led to 35 points at the break. He finished with 386 total and five touchdowns. Key play of the game was with 3:30 remaining and Iowa holding a 35-29 lead. Wisconsin forced a Hawkeye punt but Badger returner Erik Smith fumbled the return, which was recovered by the Hawkeyes. Iowa scored to basically put the game away.

    Colorado 34, Wisconsin 27

    The Wisconsin Badgers’ season ended the much the same way the entire season played out- by puking all over their shoes in the fourth quarter. The Badgers held a 24-21 lead with 2:29 remaining and had first-and-goal at the Buffaloes seven yard line. Wisconsin failed to punch in a touchdown and left the door open for Colorado by kicking a Ryan Washington field goal. The Buffs took two plays to tie the game, capped by a 64-yard touchdown pass. A missed extra point left the game tied at 27.

    With a chance to win, quarterback Curt Phillips threw into traffic where he was picked off by a Colorado defender. The Buffaloes quickly moved down the field and scored to take a 34-27 lead with just 45 seconds left. Phillips got the Badgers into Colorado territory before throwing another pick to put an end to the Alamo Bowl.
