Bielema moves past Nebraska, focuses on bright spots from loss

As a sports fan, it’s much easier to look at things from a glass-half-full perspective when discerning the prospects of the ongoing season. Fans of this year’s Wisconsin football team (0-1 Big Ten, 3-2 overall) can take a lesson in optimism from head coach Bret Bielema, who gave off a heavy dose of good vibes at his weekly Monday press conference following a crushing 30-27 defeat to No. 22 Nebraska (1-0, 4-1) Saturday.

UW prepares for Martinez

The amount of criticism senior Nebraska quarterback Taylor Martinez received last year was arguably at its peak after their 48-17 defeat in Camp Randall Stadium on Oct. 1st, 2011. His one-and-a-half quarters of solid play was short-lived to say the least. The Cornhuskers jumped out to a 14-7 lead just five seconds into the second quarter, but by the time “Jump Around” came on, the game was already decided.
