Wisconsin’s 83: The Badgers hung 83 on Indiana Saturday. They scored 24 points in the 4th quarter, when their backup QB threw passes. Outrage followed. Ornery Phil Mushnick chimed in: “Abortion? Illegal immigrants? The death penalty? Heck, watching a football game these days is stepping on the devil’s tail. A proud new leader of the March for Degradation is Wisconsin football coach Bret Bielema.” But did Wisconsin do it to impress pollsters? “They shouldn’t have to care what some retired SID living in Florida who has a Harris Poll vote thinks. Yet they do. They have to. Wisconsin needs to remain ahead of Ohio State in the BCS standings … the smartest move Bielema could make to help his players go to the Rose Bowl was run up the score on Indiana. How could a poll voter drop a team that just scored 83 points? By scoring the most points in a Big Ten game since 1950, Wisconsin’s victory became newsworthy, earning extra highlight time on ESPN and additional headlines in the newspapers.” [Death to the BCS]
