What’s the best way to put that frustrating ending in the desert behind us? The start of the Big Ten season. Purdue comes to town and it should be the first good game in Madison this year.
Onto the part you come to read.
1) How will the Badgers bounce back from last Saturday?
So far, I think this won’t be a problem. Everyone has been saying the right thing, right from the start. Even minutes after the game, players were tweeting appropriately. Andersen also has been upfront with the fact that they have moved on and they learned from the game.
The fact is, the ending of the Arizona State game was about all anyone has talked about all week. It would be impossible for that to not at least be somewhat in the minds of the players and/or coaches. I trust Andersen though, and wouldn’t expect much of a hangover. If anything, I could see Wisconsin coming out too excited and ending the first drive on a three and out.
2) Will Melvin Gordon get more carries this week?
