With 35 seconds left in the game and trailing 34-31, alllooked grim for the Wisconsin football team two years ago in Minnesota. Withthe Golden Gophers punting deep in their own territory, I sat in disbelief withmy head in my hands.Seconds later, I was in disbelief again, only it was a goodkind. Freshman Jonathan Casillas had blocked Justin Kucek’s punt after Kucekfumbled it, and Ben Strickland recovered the ball in the end zone, putting UWup 38-34. Gopher fans were shocked. Badger fans were more than elated.It was a sports miracle if ever there was one.This Saturday, I will make my return to the Hubert H. (itstands for Horatio) Humphrey Metrodome in Minneapolis to watch the two teamsbattle again. Something tells me I won’t be the only one sporting cardinal andwhite to make the trip. In fact, it wouldn’t be surprising to see more thanhalf of the Dome red amid a pond of maroon and gold.Two years ago, as a member of the marching band, I traveledto the sports temple that is the Metrodome to watch that infamous game. Thisyear, I’m anticipating an entirely different experience, but with the sameresult in the win column.First of all, Saturday will be my first time attending aBadger football game as a fan, having been with the band for every previous contest.Never before have I sat in the UW student section at Camp Randall. I’ve neverbeen able to join in on all the chants — vulgar or otherwise — the Wisconsinfaithful take part in. After Saturday, this will still be the case, but atleast I will have sat in one student section, albeit Minnesota’s.To be ready, I have been taking diligent notes during homegames on how to conduct myself as a fan.Just as it is in Madison, tailgating will surely be a staplefor Badger faithful on the road this weekend. With the stadium off campus, I’mnot sure what to expect from the home fans. A few parking lots provide the onlyreal sites for pregame entertainment. But just because it’s a few hours’ drivefrom Madison, what’s to stop Badger fans from preparing for the game as if itwere on Breese Terrace?This whole tailgating thing is another part of the game dayexperience I have yet to take part in. The smell of brats is always taunting onSaturdays, and I envy all of you who fire up your grills and partake inwhatever beverages college kids drink these days — apparently apple juice is apopular choice — before heading to the stadium.There is one aspect of the upcoming game that I am notparticularly looking forward to: the fact that it’s played indoors.When God created college football, he meant for it to beplayed outside in the open autumn air. Watching a college game in the Metrodomeis truly like watching a game in the depths of the underworld. The ceiling isdingy, the concourse is tiny and the overall atmosphere is uninspiring. I guesswatching games in football heaven at Camp Randall has spoiled Wisconsin fans.I fully anticipate some animosity from dejected Gopher fansbefore, during and after the game. After all, it’s never a picnic for opposingschools when they visit Madison, and vice versa. The boos and taunting happenedthis year at Ohio State in the Horseshoe, and chances are good they will happenagain at the Dome. And for some reason, Gopher fans get excited for this borderbattle game every year, no matter how slim their chances of winning.Most of you will likely run into people on the streets ofMinneapolis who will shout things at you or tell you how bad the Badgers are.All any Wisconsin fan will have to say to them after, however, is one word: scoreboard.Don’t be too harsh on those Gophers, though. They’ve had arough go at it this year. Their 1-10 record is haunting enough; they don’t needto be told how dismal their team’s season has been.OK, who am I kidding? Go ahead and remind them.Tyler is a juniormajoring in journalism. If you are making the trek to Minnesota for the game orwould like to reminisce about that magical game in 2005, let him know at firstname.lastname@example.org. read more
The University of Wisconsin wrestling team kicked off the 2008-09 season Saturday by hosting its annual intra-squad scrimmage. The scrimmage featured five matches, along with one exhibition match.The first match of the night was at 125 pounds and featured two juniors in Drew Hammen and Kyle Reeve. Hammen controlled the beginning of the match, scoring a takedown in both the first and second periods to lead 4-0 going into the third. Reeve scored a takedown in the third but was unable to make a successful comeback. Hammen won the match 5-2 after being awarded riding time.The 133-pound weight class featured two Colorado natives, true freshman Tyler Graff and junior Erik Senescu. Graff scored an early takedown in the first period and never looked back, taking a 21-7 major decision. Graff wrestled with a methodic approach, never losing focus and always looking to score.“I wrestle the same every time. It doesn’t matter who it is, as long as there is a mat and ref, it’s a match to me,” Graff said. “I approached it (the wrestle off) like any match, the same every time.”At 141 pounds, senior Zach Tanelli faced off against true freshman Trey Bertram. Tanelli took a quick 8-0 lead before pinning Bertram 1:42 into the first period. Tanelli, a two-time NCAA qualifier at 133 pounds, has moved up to the 141-pound weight class for his senior season.“I feel really good,” Tanelli said. “It’s nice not having to worry about my weight all the time. I’ll be able to wrestle in a match like I can in practice.”Tanelli has adjusted to the new weight and enters the season ranked No. 13 at 141 pounds.At 149 pounds, junior co-captain Kyle Ruschell took on true freshman Cole Schmitt. After a few minutes of scrambles, Ruschell ended up on top and pinned Schmitt with just five seconds left in the first period. Ruschell, a two-time national qualifier and Big Ten runner-up, enters the season ranked No.11 in the national preseason rankings.Sophomore Gabe Stoppelmoor and true freshman Ben Jordan competed for the spot at 157 pounds. Jordan scored first with an escape to start the second period and followed it up with a takedown to lead 3-0. Stoppelmoor responded quickly with a reversal — the period ended 3-2 in favor of Jordan — but he later scored an escape in the third to tie the match at 3-3. But Jordan was able to secure a takedown with just seconds to go to get the win with a final score of 5-3.The last match of the night was an exhibition match at 174 pounds between junior Dan Rivers and freshman Travis Rutt. Rivers, who normally wrestles at 157 pounds, bumped up two weight classes to wrestle the match.Rutt scored a takedown and five nearfall points in the first period to lead 7-0. Rivers earned an escape in the second period, but Rutt managed to extend his lead to 11-1 at the end of the second. Rutt got the win by achieving a tech fall over Rivers with 27 seconds to go in the match.Head coach Barry Davis was pleased with how the team wrestled as a whole but saw some areas to improve on as they enter the regular season.“It’s hard to watch two guys who are your own, but overall I was pleased with how the matches went,” Davis said. “A couple of things we need to work on … but it was good to see them in a live situation.” read more
