Default Re: So, how do we match up with Wisconsin?

Thanks for the info.

On paper I like the matchup for us, but Wisconsin is a really good team, much better than 19th.

I'd throw out the Penn St loss the same way I throw our our UT loss, sometimes it just isn't your day.

I think we're a better team than Ohio State, and I'm not afraid to say it. We've got a very mobile QB that does a great job of taking care of the ball. If we can handle your D-line I like our chances.

Our LB corps is really young. They've grown over the year and gotten better, but they're still prone to making the wrong read, which worries me a little against Wisc's run game.

Should be fun.

Buckyville.com is our version of CockyTalk.

Looking forward to the matchup. Wisconsin's offensive line is much better at run blocking than pass - USC's best hope on D is to force us to throw on 2nd and 3rd and long. Clowney will kill Stave if he knows a pass is coming.

On D, we are much better defending the run than the pass. Our defense is solid pretty much all-around. We are shaky in the defensive backfield, however. The loss of Caputo, our SS, really made a difference in the loss to Penn State. He should be back in time for the bowl. Our starting CB is a true freshman in Shelton. Both of our CB's are undersized. Look for Byrd to have a nice game.

Kicking game? Shaky. Good punter, but we haven't been able to rely on a kicker all year. Kick returns have not been anything worth noting. Good coverage teams, however.

I'd say the best boards are

or

He's been gone for over a year, I think the offense will be ok. He has enough to worry about with his own assignments.

Their power running game has a good chance to take advantage of our undersized linebackers.

This is not a good matchup for us imo- at least on the defensive side of the ball

Default Re: So, how do we match up with Wisconsin?

Will be much like the outback bowl against Iowa. They are a typical Big Ten Team. Although their backs are both sort of speedsters. Ward is going to have to actually load the box for once. They have a good WR named Aberderis. He kept them in the game against OSU. He absolutely abused Bradley Roby who was a projected 1st rounder at the time.

Defensively, they are very solid. A typical good Big 10 D. they won't have the speed to play with us, but they will hit hard and not make mistakes. You will love No. 44 Borland if you are not playing him. The dude is like Kevin Greene or something. All around, if you make mistakes, they will make you pay, but if we don't make mistakes, we should be able to throw all over them. They will likely stuff Davis though.

We need to start Dixon over Sutton. Dixon is bigger and better at stopping the run. If they get a lead, we'll be in trouble. The Iowa game from a few years ago was so frustrating so let's hope it doesn't end up like that! We'll have to play well to win.

They have one good receiver and a good TE, but overall they don't want to throw the ball if they dont have to. The key to the game is winning on 1st and 2nd down and force passing downs

When I think of Wisconsin, I think of what Florida was early in the year (before all the injuries)... power running game, with a decent throwing QB..

Carolina's LBs are going to have to tackle well...

The do have a good WR... but with their running game, Im sure we will put (single coverage) on him.. they do throw to the TEs.. that might be an issue for us..

One area where we will def. LOSE is the battle of the marching bands.

Wisconsin has the best marching band I have ever seen. Yes, better than Ohio State. They are so good that they come back on the field after the game and have a "5th Quarter" show. It's kind of a free style performance. Not to be missed.

They also have great fans. Really nice people. And if you like "thick" women...well it's like shooting fish in a barrel.

Guessing we will have to scheme up some type of a 5-3-3 defense to stop them.

Default Re: So, how do we match up with Wisconsin?

I think to beat the stout defense of Wisconsin you will have to mix things up a little bit. Connor will be doing some improvised running which should help. Should also run some wildcat against them, more than what we have up to this point.

We might be able to burn the secondary a few times on long balls as I believe that Bruce's excellent route running & Byrd's shear speed will be hard for the DB's of the Badgers to handle.

On D, we will have to mix things up a little bit. They have a great & I mean almost Auburn great running game. We will not stop it, so we shouldn't expect to but hopefully be able to get a stop here or there. We need to score on almost every single possession because I can see Wisconsin scoring 28+

Talent for talent should be a great game, we have a slight edge in my estimation just due to Connor & the big play game.

They have the kind of run game that could be serious trouble for us.

Unlike Clemson, they won't abandon the run game right when it heats up...

Instead, the will mash the pedal and keep ramming the ball up the middle.

So far this year, that has not been our strong suit.

This game will be a tough one. They are better than their record would indicate, I suppose.

Huge if. Wisconsin had a tough time pressuring the Penn State freshman quarterback. What's worse from a Badger point of view, is that from the pre-season through the final game, Wisconsin's defensive secondary has been a huge question mark.

Sometimes they do play very very well, but other times receivers just run free and make long grabs. Without pressure from the defensive front, and there hasn't been a heck of a lot of that this year, the secondary will be exposed. And a good senior QB is just the guy to do that.

Wisconsin will be stout against the run. But the passing game for South Carolina will probably be very effective.
