The Chinese philosopher Confucius once said that “Real knowledge is to know the extent of one’s ignorance.” William Shakespeare echoed him, saying “The fool doth think he is wise, but the wise man knows himself to be a fool.”

CHAMPAIGN, ILL. — Two years ago, when Garrett Groshek first arrived at UW-Madison, he had little to no experience at the running back position. Instead, he was a quarterback at Amherst High School, in Amherst, Wis., where he completed 68.8 percent of his passes for almost 2,400 yards and 41 touchdowns during his senior year.
CHAMPAIGN, ILL. — The most important member of the No. 5 Wisconsin Badgers’ defense in their 24-10 win over Illinois might have been the guy who didn’t play a single snap.
CHAMPAIGN, ILL. — After its first nine plays on offense, No. 5 Wisconsin (5-0 Big Ten, 8-0 overall) had amassed a mere 13 yards. But as the Badgers prepared for their third punt in as many series, they received a break courtesy of the Illinois punt return unit.
In a few weeks, once winter strikes Madison, Nick Nelson will spend more time figuring out what he’s going to wear around campus than what he was previously used to. Two years ago, while Nelson attended the University of Hawaii, he went to late-fall and winter classes in basketball shorts and slides. But his decision to play football closer to his home in Glenarden, Maryland as well as in a bigger conference, has forced him to make a fashion adjustment: He now spends more time deciding what he’s going to wear out of the house.
Early in the second quarter against Maryland Saturday, sophomore wide receiver Quintez Cephus caught the ball in the middle of the field and wiggled loose for a 30-yard gain.
Most players on the Wisconsin sideline seemed to know a big game was coming for redshirt senior tight end Troy Fumagalli, who had been recovering from a left leg injury the past few weeks.
It's now been 322 days since No. 5 Wisconsin (4-0 Big Ten, 7-0 overall) lost a game, as it rolled to another easy victory on Saturday, defeating Maryland (1-3 conference, 3-4 overall), 38-13.
The Maryland Terrapins come to Camp Randall this Saturday desperately looking for a win. Following a strong display of 114 points in its first two games, the Maryland offense will come into Camp Randall looking for any kind of offense that it can put together after only scoring 69 points in its last four contests combined. After Maryland lost starting quarterback Tyrrell Pigrome to a season-ending ACL tear, the Terps have relied on Max Bortenschlager who has filled in nicely for the Terrapins, throwing for 561 yards, completing just over 50 percent of his passes. However, Maryland will need perfect play from Bortenschlager and his supporting cast to beat the Badgers seventh-ranked defense in the nation.
After upsetting then-No. 23 Texas 51-41 on the road in their season opener, the Maryland Terrapins (1-2 Big Ten, 3-3 overall) have had a rollercoaster season. The Terps routed Towson in their second game before being blown out by the University of Central Florida 38-10 at home. Maryland then outlasted Minnesota to earn a 31-24 road win before being picked apart by No. 9 Ohio State 62-14 in Columbus. In their last game, the Terps fell at home to Northwestern, 37-21.
The Badgers, taking on another Big Ten opponent, continued their undefeated season with a 17-9 win over Purdue. Though suffering from some sloppy offensive plays, the Wisconsin defense was quick to recover the lost ground that resulted from the three turnovers. However, though there were some rough patches, the Wisconsin offense made a few timely plays on Saturday. Many of those chunk plays stemmed, yet again, from freshman running back Jonathan Taylor.
Week seven was quite an eventful one for the Big Ten with Rutgers topping Illinois 35-21, Northwestern topping Maryland 37-21, Michigan State slipping by Minnesota 30-27 and Ohio State dismantling Nebraska 56-14. However, these were far from the most exciting games in Big Ten play last week. Here’s an in-depth look at the most exciting games of week seven.
Being from SEC country, where there are three teams called the Tigers and two called the Bulldogs, I always appreciated the Big Ten’s unique nicknames and mascots. Almost all of the nicknames have some local historical reason and there is no doubt that there is intense pride in your local college’s mascot.
Friday the 13th is supposed to be a haunting and crazy night, and it turned out to be just that for college football as No. 2 Clemson and No. 8 Washington State were upset. This trend of wild and crazy results carried onto the weekend contests as two more top 10 teams fell as No. 5 Washington fell to Arizona State and the No. 10 Auburn Tigers lost to LSU. Beside these upsets, the other five top 10 teams in action handled business and kept on course in their pursuit of claiming one of the four spots available for the college football playoffs.

In just his first season of action for the Badgers, redshirt freshman cornerback Dontye Carriere-Williams shouldn’t be considered “the guy” in Wisconsin’s secondary.
At a press conference preceding their next game, the Washington Redskins owner, Dan Snyder, announced that the team will be changing their mascot to a humanoid potato before the current NFL season concludes. This comes as a surprise to many fans and opposers of the current team mascot, due to Snyder’s previous statements concerning the team’s current name potentially being offensive to people of Native American heritage. In 2013, Snyder wrote a deeply felt letter to fans of the team explaining that the team name would never change because of the pride, longstanding history, and tradition that the team has. In the press conference he explained his reasoning behind the decision.
First things first: Wisconsin’s offense needs to get on the same page, the special teams need to fix whatever happened on that punt, the defense needs to stop waiting until their opponent is beyond midfield to start making stops, the mistakes and penalties need to be cut down and Jonathan Taylor needs to be a serious Heisman candidate.
For the first 15 minutes of their 17-9 win over the Purdue Boilermakers (1-2 Big Ten, 3-3 overall), the No. 7 Wisconsin Badgers (3-0, 6-0) played like an undefeated powerhouse rolling over the rest of their conference opponents.
