2021 Wisconsin Season Thread
« on: December 31, 2020, 11:17:40 AM »
Kiss my ass, 2020.

OK, now that we're done with this shit show of a season, let's talk about what 2021 looks like.

First, we don't know who is all returning.

We do know LS Adam Bay is not coming back. He's going to the NFL, along with DE Loudermilk, SS Eric Burrell, and some others. Those three will be missed for sure. I'm pretty sure Cole Van Lanen is going to leave, even though he didn't show well this season.

Lots of seniors have the option of coming back (if asked to, of course) for a 5th, 6th, and one case, a 7th year in the program.

We know for sure some programs will come after Jim Leonhard with loads of cash, but I don't see him leaving Madison for another DC job. He is at home.

Chryst needs to take back the play calling, from Joe Rudolph, and allow Rudolph to solely work with the OL.

Surprised Coan doesn't hang around unless he's guaranteed PT somewhere else.Maybe the writing is on the wall there though

Mertz and the incoming Hill are the future. Jack knows this.

Lots of teams could use him. He's a good QB.

OK. He's a very competent game manager. I think Buffalo is a perfect fit, but they might have a QB. Will be interested in that market.

More good news. Fergy coming back.


"After a lot of self-reflection and talking with my family, I'm excited to announce that I have chosen to stay for my fifth year and play football at the University of Wisconsin. I believe my time at Wisconsin is not finished yet and also gives me the opportunity to graduate from one of the greatest universities. And for those keeping tabs, there will be one more year of #BarrysGrandson.

Big loss here. Garret Rand is stepping away from football. Cole Van Lanen also not coming back, but he's going to try the draft.

It's a sign of my tortured soul that every time I read of a player making this kind of announcement, giving up on football, that I think: "good call, man."

And yet, here I am, on a college football fan site, cheering on college football. Sigh.

On Wisconsin.
