The hits just keep coming for the Badgers. It’s crazy to me how a week ago we were lighting up Illinois and life was good.
Life felt like it couldn’t get better as we watched Graham Mertz sling it all over the Fighting Illini. A few days later, the whole situation collapsed.
Now, we have a total of 16 cases of coronavirus. Let’s all hope we heal up quickly and the Purdue game doesn’t get canceled.

Considering we just had four more positive tests as of Thursday, they should be thanking us for not putting their entire season at risk.
All of a sudden, the Cornhuskers have gone weirdly silent online!
Nebraska fans are accusing Wisconsin of cheating and dodging the Cornhuskers by canceling.
In the last seven matchups, the Badgers have outscored Nebraska 291-155.
