Week In Review Excels at Clock Management

If there's one thing the Big Ten will miss, it's Bret Bielema's time management skills. This week, MnB's attention turned to the land of beer and cheese, Madison. The Badgers aren't on Michigan's schedule for the foreseeable future, save for a conference title game matchup. Brady Hoke nabbed a few more recruits, and we get the lowdown on all things Wisconsin.

On Wisconsin, To The West Division. Bielema is gone, Gary Anderson is in. Learn about the 2013 Badgers with a breakdown from Bucky's 5th Quarter, a diary of a Madison resident, and analysis of Anderson's truncated recruiting class. The thing the rest of the Big Ten will always marvel at is the Badgers' annual bizarro schedule that somehow lands them in the title game, and their 2013 schedule is no exception to that trend.

On Recruiting, To The Opening. Freddy Canteen, who is obviously a distant cousin to Canteen Boy, and fellow commits Noah Furbush and Brandon Watson all chose the good guys this week. Brady Hoke must have promised them no collapses within the final two minutes of a game.

On Michigan-Wisconsin Games Of Old, To The Archives. Michigan and WIsconsin battled each other in the late 1990's, and I think 'ol Bucky had his mind blown when the Wolverines came to town in 1997 with a trick play that was never seen again under Lloyd Carr. And as an addendum to our list, I present the 1999 game in which Heisman winner Ron Dayne was held to 86 yards by Michigan.
