Bret Bielema is a great guy and a super coach. He will have the Badgers in every game this season and will win the Leaders side of the B1G Ten.

The Badgers come in having lost some good players and some great players.  In fact the loss of those players is why I only say they go 10-2.  If they hadn’t lost so much talent I would have had them as a dark horse National Championship contender.  In fact had they only retained QB Scott Tolzien I would have them possibly still competing in that spot.

Bret Bielema is the most under appreciated coach in the country for football and has this program on autopilot.  They are great recruiters in that they go after a very specific player and get them.  They also develop them and turn them into NFL players.

I think the Badgers will lose at MSU although I have these two teams very close.  The home field is what gave MSU the edge.  Things will once again be special in Madison.  They don’t even hit the road until October 22 and then they travel to East Lansing.
