Memo to Tim Brewster

Stop whining. The Badgers ran up the score on your Gophers because your team wasn't able to do anything about it. Win a few games and maybe you'll get a little more respect.

That is all.

Brewster will have plenty of time to wine about that play with his buddies in the unemployment line.

Don't get me wrong it was a mind-numbingly incosiderate play by Bielema, but it's not his job to keep Punky happy.

Anyone who really thinks that plays matters is full of baloney. A team that can't even beat the Dakota border states has no right to complain about anything that transpires in a game against a Big Ten border state. It' like getting busted for drunk driving and lamenting that your third gin & tonic was rail brand gin.

Took a look at the stats, and.....well....quite frankly, either 25 or 27 points is covered by four touchdowns, and is not covered by three touchdowns and a field goal. I would have to suggest that Bielema get a new card to help with playcalling, if that's what his card said.

Besides, "running up the score" is typically done by keeping in the starters when you're up by 30 or so, or by (as Lou Holtz did once against my alma mater) doing an onside kick when you're 30 up or so. Two point conversion at 25 up? Not so much, just doesn't make sense in light of how points are scored in the game.

I had ZERO problem with the Badgers going for two for exactly the reasons Mark stated.

However, Bielema's explanation was completely asinine ("Well, that's what the card said"). Just tell the truth and say you wanted to embarrass coach Brew & Co. for indicating "We're #1" when being down only five at halftime. I would have been the first to stand up and say "Amen, brother."
