As we do during the season we kickoff with the Thursday night action recap. Last night was as woeful as it has been for Thursday night games as Arizona mollywopped UCLA 48-12 in coach Tim Kish's debut following the Mike Stoops firing. It was bad, really bad. UCLA was awful, they looked like one of the worst FBS teams that we've got a chance to watch this year. Rick Neuheisel will likely be getting his walking papers soon.In far more fetch news we've got a special bonus podcast this week with Rob Harley on the show. Yes, Rob Harley long time friend of the program and co-host of "Hoot 'n Holler" the old classic show of the ITB line up. You should have heard Rob on ESPN3 where he is a color analyst (that word gets me every time) and make sure you check Harley out as he coaches defensive backs for Ohio Dominican. It is always good to get my northern safety brother on the program for a little chatter and we chop it up about Ohio State, All Russell Wilson Everyth...

The Wolverines are one dimensional but the Badgers have the full package at QB with talent on the outside...
ESPN College GameDay is heading to East Lansing to watch the Big Ten’s two best teams face off in prime-time. After being snubbed in the recent BCS rankings, the #6 Wisconsin Badgers (6-0) feel they have a lot to prove while the #16 Michigan State Spartans (5-1) hope to emerge from the shadows as a BCS contender.
All eyes are on Heisman Hopeful Russell Wilson...
The undefeated Wisconsin Badgers come into town to take on the Michigan State Spartans Saturday in a game that could help decide the Big Ten. This may not be the only time these two teams see each other as both teams are undefeated in Big Ten play.

Michigan State 37, Wisconsin 31.
If you're scoring the evening's main event from home, go ahead and call the heavyweight slugfest between Wisconsin's balanced, high-scoring offense and Michigan State's suffocating, nasty defense a draw.

MADISON, Wis. A war of words can only be described as such when the combatants from two opposing sides sling barbs at each other.
