War-torn Badgers

stagger

into

By JIM FORRESTER
Wisconsin.
The Badgers.
What can a fella say? T ha t
Wisconsin loses football games?
That they are the worst team in
the conference? That they rank
right at the top of everyone's bot-
tom ten? That they may never win
a game on the gridiron again?
Yes, you can say all of these
things and more. Wisconsin is al-
most comically unbelieveable. In
.their narrow escape with Indiana
(they almost beat the Hoosiers)
they received six fumbles from
their opponents and took advant-
age of none of them. On one play,
Indiana quarterback Harry Gonso
handed off to a Wisconsin defend-
er who ran 80 yards plus for a
touchdown, but the play was call-
ed back as one of the Badgers,
after long and laborious search,
found a Hoosier and clipped him.
Last weekend they i(everted to
their usual impotent selves against
the Big Ten's second best team,
Ohio State, and got blasted 43-8.
The Badgers were tough in the
first half as they held the,high-
powered Buckeye scoring machine
to only ten points, but they finally
fell apart in the second. The us-
ually ruthless Woody Hayes re-
lented in the fourth quarter and
allowed the Badgers to put eight,
points on the scoreboard.
