As painful as it was to sit back and watch Wisconsin lose 21-14 in overtime to hated rivals Ohio State yesterday, it was even more painful to put myself through watching it a 2nd time on the good ole DVR. After watching things over once again there's only one conclusion that you can come to: Coming so close, yet losing in the end is getting really old, really fast.
I don't want to dredge up the past and make your start to Sunday even worse so I won't do so completely. I think we are all well aware of the fact that Wisconsin has become the masters of finding ways to lose games by a touchdown or less. The last two seasons should tell you all you need to know.
However, it would be completely negligent of me if I didn't mention the fact that in the past 33 games Wisconsin is now 25-8 with all 8 of those losses coming by 7 points or less. In fact it's been a total of 35 points in those 8 losses and an average of 4.3 points...
