ESPN has done a 180 degree turn on the Wisconsin Badgers this college football season.
The network’s Football Power Index initially had my Badgers going 6-6 in the regular season. Now, ESPN has Wisconsin going 11-1 in the regular season with the only loss coming to Ohio State.
Games - Year - Expectations - Games - %
Yes, only two games into the year, and they’ve already completely reversed their expectations. Not only are they favored to win five more games than initially, but they’re now given at least a 66% chance to win every game outside of Ohio State.
ESPN apparently couldn’t turn the ship around fast enough. I laughed when I saw they had us going 6-6. That was one of the dumbest predictions I’d ever seen.
I guess it’s better to show up late to the party than not show up...
