Could have been a really good game from this perspective but aside from 3-interceptions, it was just another expensive ticket.

Iowa got 14 points on pick-6 plays. If UW wants to do well moving forward, that can't happen.

No offense to the kid, but I just can't see UW winning a Nat title with Hornibrook at QB. He's a decent player, but weak arm, turnover prone, can't stretch the field.

If they get into a game against a team that can stuff their run I think they're in big trouble.

If I'm UW I don't want Clemson or Miami in a playoff game. Their defensive fronts are legit. I think they'd fair well against OU, Bama just got pushed around a bit against Miss St so they might be ok there.

I don't think you'll see too many more out route passes moving forward. He just doesn't have the arm strength for that throw - especially to his right. The patterns might be there, but more to open up the middle, where Horni excels. He's also money in the red zone.

Can he win an MNC?

I dunno.

Has a team full of 3* and walk-on kids ever won an MNC?

well, your 10-0, I would think the majority of the fanbase is thinking about it.

there's been some teams that have gotten close at least. I would guess Washington from last year is not loaded with 4 and 5 star talent. This Miami Hurricane team this year probably isn't. Oklahoma St has been close, they probably aren't. TCU I'm sure isn't they were ranked 5th a couple of years ago. Michigan St was in the playoff with a bunch of 3 stars. So, I guess no one has maybe won it recently, but there's definitely teams that are close.

After Alabama, Ohio St and Clemson, there's probably a next tier of 5-10 teams like OU, USC, Notre Dame etc

Then you have a bunch of teams after that, your TCU's, Oky Sts, Oregon's, Wisconsins, Michigan Sts that are certainly capable.

It's certainly doable, but you are gonna have to be pretty sound in most phases of the game. you can probably win with a couple of issues, like an average QB but then the defense and special teams probably need to be excellent. If Ohio St can win with Craig Krenzel, I guess there's hope for Hornibrook. But Krenzel was more of a RB, game manager. If Hornibrook can limit mistakes, and be a guy that throw for 12-for-18 for 150 yards, no picks, it might be doable

were the Badgers on that pre-season list of the 6 or 7 teams capable of winning the big trophy?

past 4-5 season recruiting ranking

Heck no

It was alright. Just quick-in, and quick-out. Didn't get to see my old high school buddies of which there were 3 at the game.

 Ate lunch at Toppers Pizza about 2-blocks from Camp Randall. Surprisingly good pizza. We were trying to get to the Big Ten Pub or whatever that is called, and there was a line one-half block long 40-minutes to game time when we finally arrived there, and Toppers was quick. A long line there to the bathroom but no line to the great food.

We weren't mistreated. We sat in the hoity-toity area as you can see from the photo I posted. We weren't treated like neighbors, which we are, but we just weren't treated, and that was fine. I think our stub hub sellers must pay $1,000 donation or more a year, to buy those tickets. And we had no wind or cold where we sat. Seats were great.

I was a bit surprised Iowa's offense was so soundly shutdown by Wisconsin's defense -- not because Wisconsin isn't known for defense, and not because their defense is bad, but because I thought Iowa figured out what it was doing wrong all season against Ohio St. But no, Iowa just went back to the old way of calling plays (run, run, pass, 3 and out), and the old way of execution on offense. My impression was Wisconsin would have a tough time beating Alabama, but there are a lot of other teams they can defeat.
