    You know what, now that you mention it I'm kind of ticked off Kirk Ferentz won the Orange bowl a couple years ago but hasn't done squat since. How dare he let those good players graduate and move on. Fire Kirk Ferentz, the worst coach in Iowa history, bring back Hayden Fry.

    ...its called an upset, coaches make mistakes, players make mistakes, and teams make mistakes. Just be thankful Wisconsin is still one of the better teams in the country and has a legitimate shot at a hell of a bowl game, it could be a lot worse.

    Yes but BB will never win a Rose Bowl ever in Wisconsin or get close to a Rose Bowl ever again.

    He will win the Ramen Noodle Bowl every year. He will fade in to relm Obscurity.

    This was obviously posted by someone who was not alive pre-Alvarez because most coaches before him were worse. I remember the old days when I didn't even expect Wisconsin to win.

    I'm guessing Lunchboxer called for MM and TT's firing during 2008 and 2009, too? Or, guessing his join date, after the Detroit game?

    Not really. Problem in 08 was the crap Defense. And Rodgers first year starting as QB. Rodgers put of good numbers but the D could not do crap that year.

    In 09 the guys were not ready for that level of play yet. Still molding and learning.

    Okay. Maybe I went lil over board. But getting the talent of Russel Wilson is amazing. But it seems BB has problems winning big games.

    I will never give TCU a victory in that rose bowl. Theres a diffrence between showing up playing your heart out and losing and just now showing up.

    The badgers did not show up or care.

    How is this crap. I will never give the victory to TCU never ever. Because Wisconsin did not want to show up at that game. If they played True Badger football they would of won that game in a blow out fashion.

    I dont even know where to start with this....

    Bottom line is TCU had its best season in school history. They had a great QB, in fact said QB was NFL offensive rookie of the month last month. Took the bengals to 4-0. The defense was dominating. The coach was a coach of the year. They had the 2nd most seniors in the conference. You dont fire coaches for not winning rose bowls, you fire coaches who cant get you to a bowl. This program is the best its ever been on a consistent level. We are no longer a surprise in college football but a consistent top 15 team in the country. BB has recruited and developed some of the best players in the country. I dont remember the last time we got a highly toted recruit from California at QB. Or the top transfer in the country. This program is not declining but in its glory years.

    Teams decide to play like crap? Thats news to me.

    How was Wisconsin so much better than TCU? Like Ivo said TCU had one of the best defenses last year paired with a NFL caliber quarterback. That sure sounds like a nightmare combo for opposing teams to me.

    I won't be surprised if such a thing exists, but please, please don't tell me that there actually is a Ramen Noodle Bowl.

    Thing is, the Rose and other big bowl games are earned. Teams who go there have a great winning record.
    For smaller, irrelevant bowl games, such as Ramen Noodle, teams can have just an OK record and are invited to play there. Correct?
    Now I dunno if it's rumor or fact but someone once mentioned that the reason why Badgers end up playing in things like The Pottery Barn Bowl or The Kellogg's Cereal Bowl is because those who do the inviting recognize the large fan base that will go no matter where it is so the fans will bring in tons of money.

    I got a question for ya Boxer.
    Do you still think Brett Bielma should still be fired even if the Badgers win the inaugural Big 10 Championship and a well known, bigger bowl game?

    Thats if they beat Penn State next saturday and Beat MSU.

    They have the ability to.

    If BB wins the Big 10 Championchip will Remove that line in my sig and say I was a dumbass or something. I will eat my crow if that comes.

    Actually I dobut there is a Ramen Noodle bowl I said that for the sake of so many bowls and playing in a Bowl that no one cares about is not that fun. It does not take much to get to a bowl. The important bowls are BSC bowls like Natonal Championchip, Orange,Suger,Rose ect. Those Bowls are fun to watch.

    Which would you rather watch The Rose Bowl or The Ramen Noodle Bowl. With the Rose Bowl Featuring Badgers and Stanford or the Ramen Noodle bowl featuring. Central Utah state ( I doubt thats a team but for sake of the point) and South East New Mexico State.

    Yeah, that's what I kinda figured with your bowl example.
    As you can tell I did the same thing.
    The names and sponsors get ridiculous.
    Frankly, I won't be surprised if there is ever a Marijuana Bowl held in California and why haven't they come up with The Tidy Bowl or The Toilet Bowl sponsored by Roto Rooter?
    That's the other thing I don't like. The advertisers adding their name to the beginning.
    I remember when it was just The Orange Bowl instead of The Minute Maid Orange Bowl or whatever.

    Yep, it is more fun to watch a team you like in a natl. televised big name bowl game.
    I believe the Badgers have been to WTF ones like The Copper and The Hall of Fame Bowls.
