Every team plays an occasional cupcake. In the last three years, Wisconsin has played LSU twice, and Alabama, out of conference. And for those of you complaining about Wisconsin's strength of schedule this year, when BYU was scheduled, they were a 10-3 team. They've beaten two top 25 teams, and to get to the National Championship, they'll have to knock off a strong #7 Ohio State team.

Last year, Wisconsin was 11-3. Six of their fourteen games were against top 10 ranked opponents (#5 LSU, #8 Michigan State, #4 Michigan, #2 Ohio State, #7 Nebraska, #8 Penn State), and they beat #12 Western Michigan in the Cotton Bowl. Hardly a cupcake schedule.

I'd prefer if they went to 8 conferences and took the conference champions into an 8 team tournament. No voting, no committee, no polls.


I mean, how could Bama argue they deserve to be there if Clemson, Ohio State , Oklahoma all win (obviously the SEC winner is going to be in) when they didn't even have to play the extra championship game?
Agreed..Alabama's loss couldn't have come at a worse time...but still....It is only ONE LOSS....to the #6 ranked team.....While Clemson lost to unranked Syracuse.

It depends where they place Bama....if its ahead of UGA,,they might get in ahead of Ohio St (if they beat Wisky)
If they are placed a tad lower, might as well say bye-bye-bye Bama.

Put your cards where your mouth is.

The Badgers are already soliciting photographers to man the OSU sidelines to injure their stars.

Thank you all.


All my cards are centered, some are just cut incorrectly.

Only 37.10% crazy based on recent polling data, but still a weird dude.

You're right, Nick. It could be as simple as that. It would be hard to argue against it. IMO

Alabama picked the worst possible time to lose.....and their lone loss is against the highest ranked opponent they have faced. Meanwhile Clemson loses to Syracuse and gets in...go figure.

I can't believe that most are okay with Ohio State potentially getting in as a 2 loss team. They weren't close losses either.

I'm good with Bama in as a 1 loss team. It's hard to go undefeated, and it doesn't matter to me when a loss occurs.

We shall see. Wisconsin's defense is no joke, and if JT Barrett isn't 100%, things could get ugly.

Any given Sun...er, Saturday. Wisconsin beat the snot out of an Iowa team that embarrassed OSU. Stranger things have happened, and this is not the team that OSU spanked in the BiG10 Championship in '14.

I would give a year of my life to see the Badgers destroy Ohio State. There are three teams I literally hate: the Minnesota Vikings, the Dallas Cowboys, and the Ohio State Buckeyes. Plus, I don't like the Michigan Wolverines, or the Miami Hurricanes much.

If the most beautiful woman I've ever seen wanted to marry me, and she was an Ohio State fan, I'd tell her to take a hike!
