Mondays with Rasty: Playoff scenarios practically limitless

For a second straight week, I’ll take most of this time to discuss the bigger picture of Wisconsin’s season rather than focus heavily on the most recent game. The Badgers’ 49-20 victory was exactly what you’d hope to see out of a team that’s fighting for a spot in the College Football Playoff against a significantly inferior opponent.


Tough talk: Violence unavoidable, celebrated in football

I’ll be the first to admit that I love football. There’s something inherently primal about lining up in front of someone, knowing that your only goal in that moment is either to get past them or stop them from getting past you. It’s not necessarily always that simple, but when you get the ball in your hands, all you’re focused on is plowing through people to reach your goal.

Thursday Thoughts: College football must consider expansion in playoff format

By almost all measures, the College Football Playoff is a perfect way to determine a champion. Except for one tiny, little problem: Some of the best teams in the nation get left out. Look, the CFP is a serious improvement from the old Bowl Championship Series, which featured no playoff at all and often had two teams that hadn’t quite earned it playing for all the marbles. The expansion to a four-team playoff was a good stepping-stone, but that is where the problem lies.

Poor offensive play doomed the Badgers Saturday afternoon. 

Mondays with Rasty: Offense dismal in Wisconsin loss

The Wisconsin hype train finally hit a speed bump in Ann Arbor. The Badgers were not quite up to the task Saturday afternoon, as the power of Chryst was not enough to compel them to a win over Khaki Jesus and the Michigan Wolverines. It was an especially rough day for the Wisconsin offense, which looked more like the unit we saw scramble to a win against Georgia State than the one that was stellar in a 30-6 victory over Michigan State.

Mondays with Rasty: Starting Hornibrook the right move

There’s nothing that gets the blood pumping quite like a full-fledged quarterback controversy as your team is about to enter the gauntlet in conference play. But after an extremely ugly win over Georgia State, that’s exactly where the Badgers find themselves as they prepare to travel to East Lansing to take on No. 8 Michigan State in their Big Ten opener.
