Post by: MaximumSam on October 23, 2020, 07:04:07 AM
Fellas it's on tonight.  Wisconsin and Illinois kick us off at 8 pm ET.  The Big Ten Network rises from the dead.  My wife works tonight so it'll be me and screaming children watching as the season kicks off.  The Badgers look for revenge on Lovie.  I've been loathe to even comment on games for fear they wouldn't happen, so hopefully nothing changes in the next 12 hours.

I was supposed to have an event tonight, but someone caught a test, so I’ll have to get takeout and watch UW football.

Tough break.

Woo hoo!!

A new stream is upon us. I renamed the 2020 stream, as there were some who thought it should stay. It will die of natural causes, I'm sure, now that we have these going again.

The time zones get crazy around here, where Utah, Nevada and Arizona all intersect. One state is on Mountain time, on is on Pacific time, and one oscillates back and forth between the two essentially, as they don't recognize daylight savings time. As if that wasn't enough to keep track of in and of itself, there are some border towns that use the time of a neighboring state instead of their own.

My views of lighting and quality of TV viewing are not correlated to rooting interests.   Ex.  Day games at Miller Park are the fing worst sight lines in just about any ballpark or stadium in America. Shadows are horrible.  Love the Crew.

My favorite night game lighting in sports.  LSU.  Michigan State also looks really good .  Northwestern's lighting is absolutely dreadful.  USC is bad on TV, though not bad in person.  Wrigley is lousy w its lighting.  Two long Banks down the baselines only.

I don't like the stadiums that the lights are only in the 4 corners. It might put enough light down onto the field, but the shadows look awful on TV. Illinois, Missouri come to mind. 

Washington is probably the best lighting in college football.

He completed 20-of-21 passes for a 95.2% completion percentage, the best ever in a single game by a Badgers quarterback. His five touchdowns tied a single-game program record and his 17 completions to start the game tied the most consecutive passes completed by a Wisconsin quarterback in a single game.

It's early, and it was Illinois, but this kid could be a game changer. Need a solid TB to emerge. 

Hate to say it, but I'm done with the Watson experiment. The kid is not a Big Ten tailback, and more certainly not a UW tailback. He's not even PJ Hill.

Kinda. Five years ago, the starter had concussion issues all year. They ended up relying most on the third-down back with a Ross-esqe No. 2 option and a HS QB-turning into a fullback as a change-up. 

At the moment, the Ross-esque guy seems to be the lead, though the third-down back is better than him. And the spicy backup is a former WR who keeps bouncing between the positions.

Kirk is usually not the type to do much that comes off as petty.  He is also the type that would have probably just run out the clock if he was on the other side of this game.  The fact that Minnesota had their first team in against our back-ups and was calling timeout with 19 seconds left seems to have made him a little salty.

Petras has quite an arm. I would like to see more accuracy. If I were 6'5" pretty sure with that leverage I'd have quite an arm too, and would like to see more accuracy from it. 

The backup is always better than the 1st string QB for fans in this circumstance. I am a fan pining to see backup, Alex Padilla.

yeah the 1st To was a message the 2nd was Kirk being a jerk and the 3rd is Kirk being a Jack A**

the point he made was what? 
don't call a TO on me to try to score?
don't play your 1st stringers that obviously needed some more practice?
how dare you try to break up a shut out

I saw nothing wrong with the gophers calling a TO as the clock would run after the ball was set on a first down

I saw a huge problem with the coaching not getting Morgan out 3 series before this one but that is not a slant on Iowa and Iowa should have taken it as a respect that we continued to fight until the last seconds.

Hey Kirk you dont want the team to score on your JV then put your guys back in.  did the game change either way?  hey I bet those officials really liked you exercising your right to be a DBag

If it's less than 15 with the virus, they can play if they choose to play, and they think they can do it safely. I don't think they should play, as there could be more players infected that are not testing positive yet. Doesn't mean they can't still spread it.

This happened in Madison too. After they cancelled with 12 players positive, 8 more tested positive days later. Had they played UNL, there probably would have been an outbreak in Lincoln too.

I think HIPAA technically covers all injuries the same as COVID. And I think the coaches are technically under no obligation to protect that. They do it because they don’t have to say, which is fine.

Wow.  Have to think that despite being weak....the ref saw the extended arm and decided it was time to give the Gophers the make up call for the PI that led to Purdue getting a TD rather than having a FG try.

So, I watched the announcers show the replay, and it seemed to me the Reciever did iniate contact, but the defender held his arm and that is why it was extended.

I also have never seen a weaker PI call made. (Offense or Defense)

It was VERY weak.  Had to have been a makeup call from the previous Purdue drive that gave them a new four at the Minnesota five yard line on a phantom PI.

Honestly....Purdue probably still would have scored a touchdown and won if they hadn't thrown a terrible pick at the end.

An unnecessary arm extension and push.  But it wasn't technically a wrong call on closer look.  Just one that may or may not get called at a certain time or place.

Again....think if not for the phantom PI on the previous drive....it may not be called.

I've certainly seen weaker defensive PI called. But considering they'll let the receivers do whatever they want normally, that is easily the weakest offensive PI I can think of

Post by: RestingB!tchFace on November 20, 2020, 11:45:19 PM
By the way....this is the DPI they called on the previous Purdue drive.  This gave them a first down at the five when it should have been around 4th and 7.  Instead of a 4th down try or a FG attempt....Purdue easily scored a TD on the very next play.

All in all.....refs were making poor calls down the stretch.....and I wouldn't be surprised if the OPI was a makeup call.

Turned the game on at the start of the 3rd Qtr.I saw 5 fantastic catches in that quarter.Couldn't believe it-was like a highlight reel.I dozed off with like 13 min left and Minny was up by 4.When I woke up it was 1:30 and BTN was lamenting how Purdue got jobbed and they were right.This is why Each coach should be able to question any call once a quater.Break for commercials it won't lengthen the game.And Kudos to the gophs for playing without half the roster.


Upon further review perhaps it was the right call.Anyway some controversy to go both ways and entertaining to watch

It might be ok if there is another cancelation such that UW can play another team.

no it probably will
just because fans are stupid and say things like we should cancel the game PJ (yeah the guy you make fun of) will not, he will play short handed for the betterment of the game and conference.
however if more cases flow then the conference might shut it down but I doubt that comes form the coaches or AD.  heck if being shorthanded counted we would have called off the first game with Michigan as we were short a lot of major players then too(and still are for various reasons)

I could go on and on about losing guys like.... we are using a holder for a punter and the Kicker is months out from hernia surgery but those are excuse's or facts depending on your perspective.  bottom line is games will get you better and playing is a lot better than sitting them out

our defense is young and its no fault but the coaches for not recruiting guys 2 years ago to cover when you send players to the NFL.  but I have heard a point of view that they are the Northwestern of last year.  We will see

but PJ will play the game if allowed to there wont be any "let's cancel to screw our rivals" 

with that said Wisconsin will and should dominate the game next week and once again we will see the Axe stay in Madison
