The kid who hit it will play for Wisconsin next year where he will learn the art of holding the ball until the last five seconds of the shot clock.
That helmet is dangerously close to a certain region.
It’s allegedly Wisconsin’s new offensive coordinator and recruiting director Joe Rudolph.
Not afraid of three hundred pound men trying to kill him every down. Totally petrified by a Disney roller coaster.
They must have forgot about how the Frogs took them out last year.
Well deserved in this blogger’s humble opinion. We’re completely objective here at Gen Y, we swear.
Why is the Big Ten bragging about having Gus Johnson if he’s never the announcer on any of the great plays?? This video could have been 1,000 times more enjoyable if he was on the call.
As a fan who’s been proud of TCU’s willingness to play any school, I was a little discouraged by this news. We would have undoubtedly gotten crushed, which I’m sure was the school’s reasoning for declining the game. TCU graduated its most successful class of football players in school history this year. The seniors were apart of more wins than any group in the history of the program. Despite all that though, you’d think TCU would welcome the chance to play a big school after several big schools (see: Texas Tech) cancelled games in recent years due to the Frog’s success of late. From the Big 1070 in Wisconsin:
Badger football coach Bret Bielema says he’s “frustrated” with recruiting violations this year. Bielema appearing on “The Mike Heller Show” says he saw “some things happen that were very clear and very evident.” Bielema added “The people that do it the right way are fed up with it…I’m not in this profession to watch people do things the wrong way and get away with it, that’s for sure.”
So were the Badgers hurt in any way this year with a recruit? “I don’t think I’d be commenting unless I was involved with one,” Bielema told the show.
Bielema went on to add he thinks suspending coaches for secondary violations would help cut down on some of the cheating. “You talk to a college football coach who only has 12 games, and you tell him that he’s going to sit 2, maybe 3, which is a third or a fourth of his season, you’ll get people’s attention in a hurry”
Bielema also told “The Mike Heller Show” Wednesday that he was approached about adding TCU to the Badgers schedule in a rematch of The Rose Bowl.
“I was contacted a week and half after the bowl game about the opportunity to play TCU in our opener,” Bielema told the show. “It was something that was going to be broadcast and made a big deal, it took me all of about point five seconds to say yes.”
Bielema said TCU eventually turned down the invitation.
In the Frogs defense, big schools pull stunts like this all the time. They invite little schools to come play on their turf with their rules and then bemoan the little school when it declines the clearly one-sided invitation. Obviously if Wisconsin was willing to come play in Fort Worth, I deserve to eat crow.
My inclination is that this wasn’t the case though.

Take a look. I presume its Frog fans but it would be even cooler if other non-AQs were representing on behalf of everybody. Ironically, TCU will be joining the evil BCS in only one year’s time. From ESPN:
Multiple billboards congratulating TCU on its Rose Bowl victory popped up in Columbus, Ohio, several days after the Horned Frogs defeated Wisconsin 21-19.
The billboards seem to be a jab at Ohio State president E. Gordon Gee, who had made derogatory comments about the quality of non-automatic qualifying schools such as TCU and Boise State.
“I do know, having been both a Southeastern Conference president and a Big Ten president, that it’s like murderer’s row every week for these schools,” Gee said in late November. “We do not play the Little Sisters of the Poor. We play very fine schools on any given day.
“So I think until a university runs through that gauntlet that there’s some reason to believe that they not be the best teams to [be] in the big ballgame.”
The message on 20 electronic billboards in the Columbus area reads:
“Congratulations to TCU for their Rose Bowl victory
– Little Sisters of the Poor”
At least Ohio State fared better than fellow Big Ten member Wisconsin in its bowl game Tuesday. The Buckeyes defeated Arkansas 31-26 in the Sugar Bowl.
