31? Wowzers.

UW has given up 3 points in its last 3 games, going back to Miami, and no points in its last 11 quarters.
I don't think Michigan will put up 31, but the last 3 teams that Wisconsin has played have all sucked royally. Directional Michigan/Florida and a dead Miami program.

It's still very hard to pitch a shutout. I don't care who it is.

I think we're going to see a lot of McCaffrey in this game. I really do.

I hope they put Shea on the short leash. If he keeps fumbling the ball, keeps making the wrong reads in the run game and not keeping it when he should, keeps not finding open WR's cause he's locking onto his primary read, and keeps over-throwing and misfiring on wide open WR's for TD's- then bench his ass.

McCaffrey deserves a shot to play if Shea keeps sucking ass.

I agree.  If it looks like Shea is still playing hurt then McCaffery should go in.  Last year McCaffery was not quite as accurate as Shea with the long ball but is faster and was more of a threat on the ground.  I just hope he's learned to slide feet first when he runs.

Harbaugh isn't going to pull Shea vs the Badger defense

Michigan's defense will get enough stops on Taylor and will get to Coan when he tries to pass.  If Patterson and Runyan are healthy and back as advertised Patterson will do a lot of damage through the air.  Yes, Wisconsin's D is good but I think coach Harbaugh, the QB whisperer, will cure Patterson's of fumbles, hanging onto the ball too long and bailing out of the pocket early. 

Michigan    31
Wisconsin  17
Lot of "ifs",if UWs DB's don't interfere and see if Shea is on target,that's what I'd tell Bucky DBs.UW should move the chains vs that Defense,while decent perhaps not daunting I'd come out of the corner swinging.This isn't last years match up by a long shot.I also think the Badgers Defense should get a good push as I don't see Ms backfield being that much of a factor.As I've said and others have pointed out Wolverine passing game is the key to this contest.Well that and Bucky ball control

Scoring needs to be done in the first 3 quarters.  Weather forecast is for thunderstorms starting by the end of the 3rd quarter.  Michigan will not score more the 17 points and Wisconsin will get to 20 points before weather sets in.

Why didn't you go back 4 games? :72:

Because Jack Coan didn't start that one. Cancer did. And that cancer is now at Florida State. Brought the Moxy with him, I reckon.

Starting the wrong  QB? Sounds like bad coaching by Barry.

I've seen reports that the bad weather will start at 11AM. Sounds like lightnigh will eventually join in. There's a chance this is a multi-delay six-hour game.

Yeah, I'm not buying a Michigan blowout. 1990 was the last time that happened in Madison. This isn't pre-Alvarez Wisconsin. In the 17 games of the Alvarez Era, there have been four games in this series decided by more than two scores (if you cut that margin at 14 points, rather than 16, it goes up to 5, adding a Wisconsin win). During that same time, the away team has won by a touchdown or more three times (Wisconsin by 20 in 2010 and by 12 in 1994; Michigan by ten in 1997). Of the eleven games decided by a touchdown or more, Michigan has the lead, 6-5, but again, only once on the road.

Wisconsin is 5-3 at home during that stretch, with wins by 3 ('93), 3 ('05), 16 ('07), 21 ('09), and 14 ('17). I don't put much stock in games between Alvarez and Moeller/Carr, and Bielema and Carr/Rodriguez, but I'll be surprised if Chryst's team isn't up to the competition.

Last year, Michigan ran away with it by doing just that...running away. Wisconsin's undermanned defense wasn't able to account for Patterson in the Michigan attack, and the Wolverines gained 320 yards on the ground. Patterson's passing game was pedestrian (124 yards, no TD/INT), but Michigan didn't need anymore than that.

I'll be stunned if Michigan is able to replicate that on Saturday. And until Patterson proves that he's a capable passer, two weeks off from Army doesn't seem like enough to fix that part of his game. Michigan has yet to rely on him to win a big game for it.

The same can be said about Coan and Wisconsin. Taylor has had success running against Michigan, but last year there was no passing game to compliment the run.

Which brings me back to a typical game in this series, in a grinding defensive struggle, at home, Wisconsin wins the turnover margin and the game, 20-13.
