Is the greatest rival trophy in college sports and we need to keep it. If you need a quick refresher on how big a rivalry it is for both programs, take a look at this nicely written article.
There are many reasons to want to crush Minnesota this weekend. Let me make clear another. With a win against the Gophers on Saturday and some help, the Badgers could end up as the BigTen 5 seed! The Badgers could play in either the Alamo Bowl or The Champs Sports Bowl (The Citrus)! After the loss against MI, and the continued downfall thereafter, I was dispirited and rightly so. Yet, with a win against the Gophers on Saturday and some help, we could be a respectable 5 seed!
Batten down the hatches, mateys! It's time to destroy those East-Dakotans that blow so many goats! Let's smash 'em!
Here's what the Badgers need this week:
A win against those ball punching losers from minnesota
An Illinois loss to OSU (this would make IL bowl ineligible)
Michigan wins at home against NW (this is could be a problem, so focus!)
IL beats NW
Iowa beats MN
Ensuing Bowl Seeds:
WI-NW-MN tie (goes to WI clearly)
