Badgers Stay on the Right Path Against Wofford

You'd think playing a game against a team like Wofford would have made me feel confident before the kickoff, but after last year's joke of a game versus Cal-Poly, you can never be too sure. But the Badgers were able to erase any memories of that game by dominating Wofford 44-14, improving to 3-0 on the season.

A few things stand out to me in this game that I really like. The first thing would be that the Badgers went into halftime with a 31-0 lead, which gives me plenty of confidence about what this team can do. The second is that Scott Tolzien continues to impress under center for Wisconsin, tossing two touchdowns. The third would be that the rushing attack was strong as usual with 258 yards, including 92 from backup quarterback Curt Phillips.

The only major issue in this game also game as a result of the running attack though, as the fumbles were ever prevalent. John Clay had a few of them, losing two, and Zach Brown lost one as well. But the Badgers still won by 30 points, so I'm not too concerned.

Camp Lambeau is dead on with his analysis of the Badgers so far this season, or as he affectionately calls it, the Badgers "preseason". These first three games are meant to be tune-ups for the Big Ten season, and even though there was a scare against Fresno State (who gave Boise State a decent run on Friday night), Bucky comes out unscathed at 3-0. Of course, things haven't really gotten started yet, and no matter how good we might think this team is, we'll know a lot more after next week's game against Michigan State.
