    Pitt is all done for the week, ousted the Irish(I died a little inside) in south bend 35-7. Sanders is starting to show improvement so things on the qb front are looking a little better, he tends to go full retard in user games though.

    Starting to focus in on Illinois and @DJ Rhude. Workouts are done....work is calming down. Looking forward to playing. I will need to score more points than Wisconsin is used to IMO as Wisconsin is missing 2 HUGE players/leaders on Defense therefore we expect some breakdowns.

    Key Players for Wisconsin Freshman HB Kelly, Senior QB Fields, Soph DE McDaniel, Junor DE Cunningham.

    We expect to get pressure. The DEs for the Badgers are causing Havoc in the backfield....we need this to continue. We are expecting 1 big play from Fields and for Kelly to stay on the field and continue to pound out positive yards. The WRs are a crap shoot. We throw to who ever is open on that play. There is inconsistency in the passing game but our plan is to keep the 3rd downs to below 5 yards and keep Illinois guessing on defense.

    Also watch out for the Badgers Special Teams....it is a silent weapon this season!

    Game around 10-10:30 pm est on www.justin.tv/jms493

    Wisconsin takes care of Business vs Rhude and Illinois. 31-7. Illinois stroke first with a nice drive and td pass. They carved up the Badger defense which had me dumb founded. The Badger defense settled in and become a wall....Illinois was unable to run anymore forcing them to pass vs a fast a stout secondary.

    Wisconsin offense was slow but steady striking down field when they saw an opening. Fields was 8/9 for 100+ yards. Nothing spectacular here just ground
    and pound.

    GG @DJ Rhude

    We will see u next season for sure!

    I couldn't do anything against that man defense after the first drive......if Rhude can't run, he ain't winning......pretty much the whole story of my entire video game football career...lol......and on defense, the ground and pound wore me down

    And thanks for hurting my starting QB Dunn for 8 weeks :(

    wow...I didn't know...sorry. Yeah alot of man defense vs your team. I wasn't worry about you burning me. Although that trips route where that WR breaks out towards the sideline killed man. I would have tried to set up up eventually and play a cover 2 but it never came to that.

    The first 1.5 drives you shredded my defense....but then after that it seemed like my dline was getting pressure. I found that you ran horizontal a few times which never ended up in positive yards.

    You were selling out vs the run I thought....I just needed to pick the right spot to attack down the field. That long TD pass to Nolen was a thing of beauty for Wisconsin.....I felt that took some air out of the Illinois sails.

    FYI - put your punter in as kicker!

    Yeah, I didn't want to abuse the play, but it's pretty effective against man defense for the most part....your top two corners with that 95 coverage is killer tho.....I ran it one time and they were all over it

    I ran like a jackass a few times (those horizontal runs you referred to)

    And I thought my punter was kicking field goals, sonabitch only kickoffs lol.....he has 99 kick power, I never would have attempted that field goal with noodle leg kicker....we are still learning this team

    I looked over your defense, looks like you did a nice job recruiting some studs!

    Yes the first few seasons I was getting destroyed on defense. It was like "let me put the fucking controller down" bad. I went DEFENSE HEAVY a few classes and it is finally paying off. Especially secondary guys. For some reason DEs love Wisconsin.....it is nice to have strong ones.

    Last year was the first year I was able to play some man defense with some effectiveness. I am also improving at patrolling the middle with my LBs. Slot guys still rape of the middle.
