What the first few Big Ten games can reveal about Wisconsin football’s future

first_imgAfter an outstanding performance in Nebraska and Northwestern, the University of Wisconsin football team has positioned itself to be number one in the Big Ten West division.With a win over Nebraska under their belts, Wisconsin arguably has already passed their toughest road game this season and moved up to number seven in national rankings according to the AP poll.There are a couple of key factors that Wisconsin must capitalize on if they want to win the Big Ten West division.Football: Amid the rain and cold, Wisconsin still manages to shine for third Big Ten winThe University of Wisconsin football team did not have much on their side Saturday, but they still managed to produce Read…OffenseThe last two Big Ten games proved Wisconsin has no trouble with producing offense. Running back Jonathan Taylor has been a beast for the Badgers. The first-year freshman has a career-high of 249 rushing yards against Nebraska and is averaging 7.9 yards per game. As a result, Sports Illustrated has placed Taylor on the Heisman watch list.Taylor’s performance could not have been achieved without the offensive line, who have done a fantastic job opening holes and protecting quarterback Alex Hornibrook. The Wisconsin offensive line is not only helping to keep Taylor healthy for longer, but they also make running routes easier for him.Hornibrook and his wide receiver corps are also doing well in the passing department. Hornibrook has thrown 300 yards passing in three games and continues his trend of having a dominant performance in the second half of the game.  The rise of Danny Davis and Quintez Cephus (23 catches, 401 receiving yards) have also stepped up their game in the absence of tight end Troy Fumagalli.While Fumagalli did miss a game against Northwestern, Hornibrook’s number one target came back against Nebraska and has been solidifying the Wisconsin offense in any way he can. Fumagalli is a diverse tight end who is capable of not only blocking, but also running and rushing. This combination of skills is highly sought after in the modern era of football, and has become in high demand in the NFL.If  Taylor can maintain his performance, Hornibrook connects his passes,and Fumagalli gets healthy, the Wisconsin offense will be unstoppable against Big Ten opponents.Football: Wisconsin dominates in Lincoln winning Freedom Trophy for fourth straight yearIt looks as though the University of Wisconsin is getting back into the swing of things after managing to take Read…DefenseWhen the offense is stalling the Badger defense can always be count on to make big plays. Jim Leonhard, the defensive coordinator has done a fantastic job making the defense top notch. In Northwestern, the defense made key stops including numerous sacks and a safety from D’Cota Dixon. In Nebraska, the defense made key stops including a 78-yard touchdown return from outside linebacker Chris Orr.Wisconsin held opponents to 21 points in the second half. In addition, the defensive corps already has three pick-six returns for touchdowns which is a major factor in Badger wins. UW’s defense has also managed to have four games this season in which they have prevented opponents from scoring a single point during the second half.Leonhard and his defense have proved that even without standout linebacker Jack Cichy and other key players the defense can still thrive in Big Ten competition. As with the offense, if the defense can keep up or excel in their performance, then Wisconsin will be prime to win the Big Ten West division.Favorable ScheduleThe Badgers must capitalize on the rest of the schedule after winning tough games against Northwestern and Nebraska. With two of their harder challenges out of the way, Wisconsin looks to the remainder of their season, which is filled with much easier opponents.Maryland has been doing well for themselves this season, but they have been up against some relatively easy opponents as well. In their last matchup together, Maryland almost upset Wisconsin (Wisconsin – 31, Maryland – 24). But with home advantage and pumped-up homecoming atmosphere, Wisconsin should be able to pummel Maryland.Many thought Maryland football was on the rise this year, but after the Terrapins lost to Northwestern in week seven, it seems as though they are still having the same struggles from previous seasons. Maryland should be a relatively easy game for Wisconsin, and should result in a homecoming celebration unlike any other.Wisconsin’s remaining away games are against unranked opponents including Indiana, Illinois and Minnesota. The Badgers should be able to win these games based on their past away game performance in BYU and Nebraska.The only potential roadblocks seen in Wisconsin’s schedule are games against Iowa and Michigan. However, both are home games. In addition, Iowa has been struggling in the Big Ten Conference (1-2 record) and Michigan has recently suffered a huge upset against Michigan State.Hayes: Rethinking the Big Ten as nation’s ‘supreme’ college football conferenceThe Badger Herald sports editor, Brice Schreter, recently published an article claiming the Big Ten has now overcome the SEC as Read…In contrast, the closest Big Ten West opponent that can compete for first place, Nebraska, has a tough schedule ahead of them. They have a home game against No. 9 Ohio State and an away game at No. 3 Penn State. Both games are going to be really hard for Nebraska to win, and they might not win games against Iowa, Northwestern or Minnesota either.Based on the performance so far Wisconsin’s schedule should help the team to achieve their 15th Big Ten Conference title.last_img read more

Oregon phenom Bol Bol goes off as No. 15 Syracuse’s interior play slides

first_imgNEW YORK — For the second-straight evening, Syracuse players sat in silence by their individual chairs. They had assembled into the New York Knicks locker room at Madison Square Garden after another loss, a second-straight defeat that boiled down to, among other things, a serious problem in the paint. In each of its losses, first to Connecticut on Thursday and then to No. 13 Oregon (3-1) on Friday, No. 15 Syracuse (2-2) was left out to dry on inside, both on the offensive and defensive ends of the floor. An 80-65 loss to Oregon — led by 7-foot-2 center Bol Bol’s 26 points and nine rebounds — shined a light on an SU interior game with few answers. The last two interior performances by Syracuse showcase the team’s weak point two weeks into the season.Bol’s monster performance aside, the Orange have a serious problem in the paint. On back-to-back nights, Connecticut and Oregon (62 paint points combined) bullied Syracuse inside, creating issues that extended to the perimeter where both teams feasted on open 3-point looks. Huskies and Ducks guards fed the high post, setting up open lanes for slashers and space for shooters from the wings. The result was a stunned Syracuse team, which drops to 2-2 — its worst start to a season since 1987-88. “We’re not physical,” Syracuse head coach Jim Boeheim said of his big men. “They’re not affecting the game. We need more from them, there’s no question. If we score points, if our guys score that we think can score, we’ll be alright. If they don’t, we will not be alright.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textAlexandra Moreo | Senior Staff PhotographerDucks junior guard Payton Pritchard and head coach Dana Altman said their plan was to run through the middle of the zone via high-post flashes with Bol and drives. Gaps opened. Kick-outs followed. Layups and dunks at the rim came repeatedly. Altman said the plan worked for UConn, so the Ducks exploited the open space in the middle, too. One of Boeheim’s primary concerns following SU’s 83-76 loss to Connecticut Thursday night centered on the Orange’s interior play. His insight proved to be a precursor to Friday when senior center Paschal Chukwu struggled to defend Connecticut’s frontcourt — whose rotation featured players a couple of inches shorter than Oregon’s, especially Bol. He went for 14 points and seven rebounds in the first half alone. Bol stretched the Orange 2-3 zone by functioning from the high post, and he knocked down one 3 to finish with 26 points and nine rebounds.MORE COVERAGE: Syracuse’s second loss in 24 hours comes to No. 13 Oregon, 80-65Offensive woes and other takeaways from No. 15 Syracuse’s 80-65 loss to No. 13 Oregon Comments While it’s unlikely Syracuse sees such a formidable interior opponent anytime soon, the more concerning issue rests in the Orange’s gaps inside. Regardless of the opponent, the paint area needs to be cleaned up, Boeheim said, because it wasn’t only Bol who engaged on both ends of the floor. Chukwu fouled out at the 2:47 mark Friday night because Oregon forward Paul White had simply snuck behind him. He got fouled while attempting a layup in a gap wasn’t as readily available during Syracuse’s late-season push last season. “Last year, everybody was on top of their game defensively,” Chukwu said, who had three rebounds and zero points in 18 minutes. “The past few games, we took some breaks on defense. Teams aren’t going to let you get away with that.”When the Orange don’t have an interior presence, they are doomed. Boeheim said Syracuse guards aren’t helping the cause on the perimeter since UConn and Oregon guards found success driving into the paint area. That puts an extra load on the bigs. “They took advantage by driving to the middle,” said sophomore forward Bourama Sidibe, who had two points and two rebounds against Oregon. “When the (SU) bigs stepped up, they had other guys were open.” Alexandra Moreo | Senior Staff PhotographerChukwu found himself in a flux. When Bol caught the ball near the free-throw line, he said he saw a number of threats. Bol could shoot, pass or dribble to the basket. He tried to read his body language which was no easy task. Asked what Syracuse can do to course correct moving forward, Chukwu paused. “Most of the time, I was the only person going for the defensive rebound,” Chukwu said. “When a shot goes up, it was just me going against three or four guys sometimes. One thing I have to be conscious of is when I do get a rebound, don’t let somebody take it from me.”Chukwu noted that it’s only the fourth game of the year and there’s plenty of time for correction. Somehow, Syracuse has to find thrust, a way to defend physical defenses in Ohio State (Nov. 28) and throughout conference play, and a formula to generate production inside. They have to find a way to fix holes and weaknesses. Otherwise, as Boeheim said Thursday, SU could get “absolutely crushed” down low.
