Athletic Director Barry Alvarez announced this week that the Badger football team will be playing Alabama In 2015. The Cowboys Stadium Classic will be hosted of course by Jerry Jones at the new Texas Stadium. I know there are a lot of fans wanting the Badgers to play a better non conference schedule, well u got it.
The big question now is will this help or hurt the program? The way I see it the badgers are in a win-win situation. They will come in as the underdog in this game with no pressure, plus big national television exposure. However, they cannot get blown out like Michigan did last year. Of course I would love a home and home series against Alabama but that will not work for both parties. I'm not crazy about it but I understand!
Our mantra over past years is “In Ted We Trust”. But lately we have seen teams make bold moves in free agency to get better. The latest this year has the 49ers picking up Anquan Boldin for a 6th round pick, they have now replaced Randy Moss, just for the record that move is an upgrade over Moss. To me the Packers are clearly chasing the 49ers with this move.
The Seahawks traded for Percy Harvin today for a first round pick, this gives them one the most dynamic return men in today's game. Harvin can also play running back and receiver, if you thought Randall Cobb was good, Harvin is bigger, faster, and stronger. If you thought the Packers had trouble with the 49ers defending their offense The Hawks offense will be better with Russell Wilson, Marshawn Lynch and Harvin doesn’t matter who else the Hawks have at wide out.
In Ted We Trust? We trust Ted to do something now other than draft and develop players. We will always make the playoffs with this plan but is it good enough to win Super Bowls?
