    Apparently that wasn't enough to help the Red Tree Farmers in Thursday's game.

I can imagine an old-timer who played a hundred years ago bemoaning the wussy game being played in the eras of Night Train Lane, Dick Butkus and Ronnie Lott.
    Had to look up Night Train Lane.. wow!!

    here's a version of Night Train Lane story I've heard several times through the years:

    <<...The headmaster had set aside parking for the Detroit players to not interfere with school activities. One individual, however, broke the rules by parking wherever he wanted.

    The school asked coach George Wilson to find the culprit. At a team meeting, Wilson asked who it was that had “a late model Cadillac convertible with a pink body and a yellow top, wire rimmed wheels, a six-foot antenna rising off the trunk, and squirrel tails flaring off both rear fenders.”

    Nary a hand rose as Wilson scanned the group. He repeated the description a second time as players’ eyes slowly began to turn towards the back of the room where Lane was slouching further down in his seat. They all knew it was Lane’s car.

    Just as Wilson was about to repeat the description a third time, Lane raised his hand, asking in his iconic, slow West Texas drawl, “Coach Wilson, is that car a two-door or a four-door?”...>>

    Down go the Badgers! Down go the Badgers!

    Wisconsin was a 31-point favorite and when Illinois kicked a field goal with no time left to eek out a 24-23 win, it was the first time the Badgers have trailed all year.

    I was looking forward to next week's showdown in Columbus, so I'm a little disappointed to be honest. This morning I checked the ticket price for the section I sat in a couple of weeks ago and with fees they were going for $500 each. I'm guessing prices will be dropping after today's debacle.
