7-1 Big Ten, 10-2 overall
Defeated Stanford in Rose Bowl
No. 4 AP, No. 4 coaches after 1999
1999 results:

Mark your calenders.
Gosh knows the Badgers
did months ago. Whether or
not most people in Ann
Arbor realize it. there is a
collective hatred of
Michigan in Madison - a
town credited for coining
such phrases as "Ann
Arbor's a whore," et al.
That hatred has been
fanned the last two seasons
by a harsh reality -
Michigan was the only
team to beat the Badgers in
back-to-back efforts.
Don't necessarily believe
the hype about Wisconsin.
First off, Barry Alvarez's
boys landed in the Rose
Bowl the last two years
without hurdling traditional
Big Ten obstacles.
In 1998, they avoided
BCS-bound Ohio State.
And last season's schedule
spared the Badgers Penn
State, a top-five contender
until late in the season.
Secondly, suspension-
fest may vet catch up with
this year's squad. Twenty-
six players are in the

NCAA doghouse for
accepting cheap sneakers.
and the weakened Badgers
barely beat Western
Michigan in their season
Among those suspended
in that game was junior cor-
ner Jamar Fletcher - the
Big Ten's reigning intercep-
tion king two years run-
ning, and probably the Big
Ten's most talented player
this season.
But even the naughty
Badgers have circled Sept.
30. Although Wisconsin has
four games in which to
serve the suspensions, it
has chosen to oblige all of
them in three. Why?
Michigan. Alvarez is out
for blood in his fourth game
of the vear. And that, at the
very least, should provide
for an entertaining
Fletcher has the ability to
take away an entire half of
the field - -but up against
Derrell he'll be put to the
test. The whole thing could
be reminiscent of the clas-

In their fourth year with the team, coach
Joe Tiller and quarterback Drew Brees
have never defeated the Wolverines.
Keep in mind that the two teams did
not play during their first two years, and
last season, Purdue handed itself the loss,
dropping 13 passes in the 38-12 defeat.
But this year Purdue will be loaded
once again on offense and will have to
stand strong against some of the highest
expectations the program has ever seen.
Last season. Brees finished fourth in
the balloting and the city of West

Lafayette may be already planning this
season's victory parade.
"We're seniors, it's our last go-around.
and we know this offense, as good as
we're ever going to know it," Brees told
the Lafayette Journal and Courier.
Last year's leading receivers Chris
Daniels and Randall Lane will be missed,
but Brees won't be left without support.
Tight end Tim Stratton finished last sea-
son with 49 receptions and returns for his
junior year. Steve Ennis will be the
