Here’s something you don’t see every day: A Michigan football fan, decked out in a full dress suit, straps on a U-M jetpack and takes off into the air and right out of the Big House. What better way to entertain 100,00-plus people during a halftime show, right? No, there’s no word on where this spirited Wolverine fan finally landed.
MADISON, Wis. – Coaches usually want to get the first game behind them. Wisconsin’s Gary Andersen was no different. The Jitters, the unknown. Just get here and get over. Now. This not only was the first game of the 2013 season—it also was his first game as Badgers coach.
There were few positives to take from Purdue’s 42-7 season-opening loss at Cincinnati, and Purdue quarterback Rob Henry more than accepted his share of the blame for the performance. Hours after the game, Henry took to Twitter to apologize to the Purdue community and tell them that he was taking a break from Twitter “because there obviously needs to be a lot more work done.”
Many people wondered what the Wisconsin offense would look like under Gary Andersen. In Saturday afternoon’s season opener vs. Massachusetts, the Badgers – as Andersen insisted ever since he took over for Bret Bielema – stayed true to Wisconsin’s roots. And that means running the ball, and doing so very well.
