I was looking forward to a nice a toasty environment in my basement watching my beloved Wisconsin Badgers take on Michigan.  Was.

Last night the wife's boss offered us free tickets to the game.  Can't turn that down :/

"Supposed" to clear up for the game, but here's the current radar:

Seems a bit warm for this time of year. Dress in layers so you can take some off if you overheat while jumping around.

I'm about those layers.

Had a dress rehearsal as we went to the Wisconsin- Illinois game in Champaign a few weeks ago.  Rainy, windy, and cold, but I nailed the layering.

Except for the socks.  Only wore one pair.  Today I'm going 3 deep!

Heh, where do you go downtown?

We're taking a Lyft to Union South and grabbing a quick cocktail.  Dilly dilly, etc..

Red Zone generally has an older crowd on game days and is huge. Still a bit more of a college atmosphere, since it is on Regent St.

Dry socks are worth their weight in gold.  I've packed extra socks in a ziploc and changed them at halftime.

This is what I do too. Also, Wigwam or Smartwool merino socks. Stay warm-ish even when wet.

Its all good! I'm hoping for an upset here.  It'd be a heck of a birfday present.

Not a great Saturday of games. Watching Michigan v Wisconsin and after that just flipping around to possible upsets.

I'm setting the over/under at the number of times the ESPN Muppets use the word "cupcake" in their broadcast at 0.

Take the under.

The Wisconsin defense is already really good and Michigan is helping them a lot. They're already out of timeouts.

LOL. Michigan fumbles on Wiscy's 1 yard line.

And the out of bounds reception before the fumble...

Wisconsin might run away with this if Michigan keeps making silly mistakes.

Wisconsin doesnt really defend passes I guess

Okay, CNBC has Harvard/Yale, which I don't have on my cable, but NBC has soccer.  That makes sense.  Not.

I don't have a dog in that fight, but I will root for whatever win will cause the most chaos for the playoff system.

This! 8 teams would make for some damn good games.

Well, and now you know why nobody respects the Badgers despite the record, because those of us who watch the team know that they have a one-dimensional offense and if an opponent can take that away, they can't move the ball.

It will get there. I've always said getting past  "b-b-but our bowlz!" was just the tip. Once the championship game was introduced, 8-team playoff is a done deal.
It will take a while and probably go through some 6-team bye-week shenanigans along the way, but there *will* be 8 team playoffs.

And our grandchildren will go, "Wait. You guys used to VOTE on who wins? Like gymnastics. Wow. That's farked up."

There it is...guaranteed INT from Hornibrook. Wisconsin isn't a #5 team.

It's sad how empty Razorback Stadium is right now. I dont know if it's raining there or something, but damn....

Luckily their defense is filthy to overcome all of the turnovers. I'm waiting for a Jonathan Taylor fumble.
 
2017-11-18 02:25:44 PM  
Welp, it's 28-28. Gah.
 
2017-11-18 02:28:18 PM  
Michigan and Wisconsin look like identical teams.
