Found December 02, 2012 on Madtown Badgers:
(photo courtesy AP) I don't know about you, but for myself the past two Rose Bowl seasons have been amazing journeys full of ups and downs, what could've beens and all that comes with it. But, this one, this 3rd one in a row, well it just smells and tastes that much sweeter. No doubt the Badgers had to overcome certain things in 2010 and 2011 to get to the championship game, but as I wake up on Sunday morning the smile hasn't left my face yet. That's because this team proves that with hard work, belief, and above all else sticktoitiveness you can achieve any goal you set.  There's only one thing that's been running through my mind since halftime of this game really and it's this: .... more after the jump .... Yes, we here at MTB attempt our level best to put on our objective hats from time to time and it serves to level us off no doubt, but at our core we are all Badger fans - otherwise what are you doing reading this and what am I ...

Badgers feel vindicated after routing Nebraska

INDIANAPOLIS For weeks, the running narrative surrounding Wisconsin's football program was it had no business being here in the first place.

Wisconsin crushes Nebraska in route to 3rd straight Rose Bowl

Stanford, Wisconsin programs mirror image

Gordon proves UW ground game will endure

INDIANAPOLIS Melvin Gordon couldn't help but hear the unrest from Wisconsin football fans displeased with his lack of touches this season.
