"We scored first!"

Badgers, Packers, Mallards. Paddling, running, golfing. And bikes!

"We scored first!"

Postby O.J. » Mon Dec 07, 2009 10:34 am

Ahhh, what a difference twenty years makes. My first football game as a UW student back in '89, Miami was kind enough to stake us to a field goal lead before scoring the next 51 points. It's time for some payback on Dec. 29. Revenge is a dish best served ice, ice cold.

It was my 20th birthday. I remember sitting in the rain and going "Rose Bowl! Rose Bowl!" after that field goal. What a season, 1989...

You do know the game is in Orlando? And I'm sure the staff and players give a rat's ass about some shellacking that happened 20 years ago.

But, good luck with that revenge thing, anyway.

Bucky will get smoked by a Miami team with a chip on it's shoulder after being snubbed by the Gator Bowl so Bobby Bowden can go out in a New Year's Day game.

You do know that everybody is taking this less seriously than you, right?

I was at that game, too. At least until the end of the third quarter, or so, when I was too wet and cold to stay. I walked back to Sellery, took a shower, got something to eat and the game was STILL ON! I believe it was televised nationally. I believe that was the exact moment when Donna Shalala decided that it was time for shit to change.

And you do know the current Badger team has no motivation what so ever to exact "revenge" on the Miami Hurricanes?

Motivation to win? Sure. Motivation to revenge a game played 20 years ago against a team that isn't even considered a hated rival? Doubt it.

She hired Barry. He talked at the Badger Huddle (a luau, not the typical brats and beer) in Honolulu prior to the Badger-Warriors game. Said he expected a Florida bid, but was hoping for San Antonio. So was I. Would have gone just to see the town. Been to the Sunshine State too many times already.

How would you like your crow prepared? How about smoked, to make up for that dinner of Badger that was never served?

Who else saw the university for "The U" starring Donna Shalala? What other major university features their chancellor in their commercial? Who goes to "The U" because she's there?

I think it was pretty clear who she was rooting for.

Good win for the Badgers. They still lost to the only three decent teams they played (If you think Miami is decent, you weren't watching that game last night. The ACC clearly doesn't approach the Big Ten in football. And what was up with the long underwear shirts and sideline heaters in 50-degree weather? That alone would have gotten me to take Bucky minus three.)

They will miss Schofield and Maragos next year. A lot.

Wow how appropriate did the title of this thread end up being. They scored first this time and that was about all the good the U did all night. Gotta hand it to the defense. Got in Harris' head and face early and often. That's all it took to bring these guys down. Oh that and the frigid temperatures.
