So glad Coan played last year JFC

He's got 4 years of eligibility, so it's not like they wasted his time in Madison - unless he leaves for the NFL.

Seriously, I guess I need some sense for how good Illinois' DBs are, but if he looked like this in practice last year it was borderline criminal not to play him last year.

I’m not sure if it was criminal or not.  But you had a once in a decade RB in Taylor.  A really good D.  And they played Coan.  Fucking A.  

Illinois has a good defense BTW.  Coan was awful against them.

I’ll say this- the Badgers have good receivers.  Ferguson and Stokke are really good.  Groshek is a nifty pass catcher.  Jalen Berger is the RB equivalent to Mertz. Watson sucks.  Figure it out Chryst.

Mertz threw an incompletion on his first pass attempt last year.

Since then, he's gone 23 of 23 for 253 yards and 4 TDs. I'm guessing he's probably not going to maintain that pace.

naysayers gotta say nay... 😂

I know it ain’t fair to compare, but the RBs leave much to be desired here. A great RB makes OLs look better by feeling the holes and getting into space- these guys don’t have “it”.

I’ve seen enough of Watson in one half to know he’s not very good.  

Groshek is solid.  But they recruited a 4 star guy in Berger from New Jersey.  A dynamite athlete.  I don’t think they red shirted him.  Play the man.
