    I just got back from the game. Great win for the badgers, but Robinson should be up for heisman, dude is amazing.

    If its not the rose bowl it will be another BCS bowl, not the worst thing in the world. might actually be good if we have a chip on our shoulder.

    Well I was sweating today that's for sure. lol

    First I thought we all but had the Rose Bowl wrapped up when Purdue was beating MS the entire game into the 4th. Then they COMPLETELY choked the game away like I haven't seen in a long time.

    So now that means we need Ohio St. to win... They and Iowa go into the 4th tied at 10. Iowa takes the lead and holds it til around 2 mins left.. When OSU had that 4th and 10, I thought that's it. But they pulled it out of their ***.

    So assuming Wisky wins, still need Ohio state to win if Michigan State also wins.

    Another stressful weekend ahead..

    It looks like we'd play BSU, possibly Stanford. BSU could crush us, I'd rather play Stanford, lol.

    Giving a Heisman Trophy to a barely bowl eligible team would be like giving the NFL MVP to an 8-8/9-7 team that doesn't make the playoffs. I really hope it doesn't happen.

    Cam Newton gets it as far as I'm concerned, unless they can prove there is truth behind the allegations surrounding him.

    Yeah a 2 win team never would have the best overall player in the land..I know its an odd concept but I bet it is possible..

    Or the fact that only a q/b or wr, or a rb is the best player...I bet some lineman or linebackers were the best players in years the " high profile" players won

    Wisconsin now leads the all-time series against Northwestern 56-33-5, including 22-14-2 in Madison.

    The home team has now won the last six games in the series. That will hold for a while as Wisconsin and Northwestern won't be in the same division when the conference splits up next season and won't play each other in 2011.

    Wisconsin won its 12th Big Ten title and first since 1999.

    The Big Ten had its first three-way tie for the title since 2000.

    The Badgers had seven conference wins for just the fourth time (1998, 1999, 2006)

    Wisconsin had an unbeaten record at home (minimum six games) for the 12th time.

    Wisconsin is undefeated this season when scoring first (10-0), leading after the first quarter (8-0), leading at the half (9-0) and leading after three quarters (11-0).

    Wisconsin entered leading the nation in penalties per game (3.0) and were third in penalty yards per game (30.3). Both of those numbers will go down as UW had two penalties for 25 yards vs. Northwestern.

    The Badgers have 46 rushing touchdowns. The Big Ten record is 48 (Ohio State, 1974).

    Wisconsin has an outside chance of being the first team in history with three 1,000-yard rushers and a 2,500-yard passer. Nevada in 2009 had three 1,000-yard rushers, but the QB passed for 2,052 yards. Here is what is needed: James White already has 1,000 yards (1,029). John Clay needs 64 yards rushing and Montee Ball needs136 yards while Scott Tolzien would have to pass for exactly 200 yards.

    Clay broke a seventh-place tie with Terrell Fletcher on UW's all-time rushing attempts list.

    Scott Tolzien passed both Mike Samuel and Randy Wright to move into fourth place on UW's all-time passing yards list and also passed Samuel to move into fourth place on UW's pass completions list.

    Tolzien has thrown for the sixth-most yards in a season in UW history. He'll likely move into fourth place (only 91 yards needed), but third place (would need over 300) is a longshot.

    Nick Toon passed both Tim Stracka and David Charles into 12th place on UW's all-time receiving yards list.

    I love this stat: If Tolzien goes 0-for-55 passing in the bowl game, he'll still have completed 60.6% of his passes this season.

    Ball became the second UW player to have four rushing touchdowns in back-to-back weeks (Ron Dayne in 1996 was the other).

    For the third straight week Ball set a personal best in rushing yards.

    Philip Welch became the second player in UW history to record 300 points (Dayne with 426 is the other).

    J.J. Watt has 21 tackles-for-loss on the season, tied for sixth-most in a season in UW history.

    Watt also has three blocked kicks, tied for second-most in a season in UW history. Richard Johnson had six in 1984.

    For the first time in school history UW has had three straight games with two 100-yard rushers.
