Gholston's Status Under Review

According to the ESPN Big Ten blog, JSOnline, and almost every other site covering the Big Ten, a decision is expected Wednesday on a possible suspension for MSU's DE William Gholston. It seems like the Big Ten is giving Michigan State the opportunity to handle this in house but if they don't suspend Gholston I imagine the Big Ten will.

Previewing Bucky-Sparty

Two top-15 teams matching up means a lot of previews. Accordign to Eye on College Football, Gholston's status is the x-factor Saturday and UW will win if the offensive line performs well.

ESPN has a video of Kirk Herbstreit previewing the game. He says the game will come down to the UW offense vs. the MSU defense.

Jeff Potrykus has a scouting report on the Spartans offense, defense, and special teams.

Michigan State in Spin Mode

The MSU coaching staff and athletic department continue to defend MSU's style of play. Regardless of what happens with Gholston I like that MSU is having to spend more time defending itself instead of focusing on UW.

Is Sparty UW's Biggest Rival?

Tom Mulhern thinks Michigan State is UW's best football rival in the Big Ten right now, which has a lot to do with the state of other programs like OSU and Minnesota.

More Evidence that Russell Wilson is Awesome

Number cruncher extraordinaire Dave Heller broke down the productivity of the UW drives Wilson has lead this season. When Wilson leads a drive, the Badgers score 75% of the time including TDs at a ridculous 69% rate.

Montee Ball Quietly Putting Up Heisman Numbers

Jack at Badger of Honor writes that while Russell Wilson is getting lots of Heisman attention Montee Ball will likely get a good share of lower votes on the Heisman ballots. He also notes that if UW's only points this season were Ball's TDs they would still be undefeated. Wow.
