We’re about two and a half months away from the start of college football, and it’s time to start discussing what we should expect out of the Wisconsin Badgers this season.
Going into 2019, let’s take a look at three possible outcomes for my squad. The first scenario is we go undefeated, win the Big 10 West, win the B1G title game and end up in the playoff. Obviously, this is the goal for every team, and it’s what Wisconsin fans expect.
Scenario - Wins - Everybody - Michigan - Home
The second scenario is probably the more likely one. We get wins over everybody except Michigan at home and Ohio State on the road. That would put Wisconsin at 10-2 and would almost certainly get us a spot in the B1G title game. From there, it’s the roll of the dice. At 10-2, we’d be setup for a great bowl game, but we’d also likely be out of playoff contention with two losses.
The third option is a doomsday scenario. It’s the kind of scenario that might have fans ready to riot in the streets. If the wheels fall off, we could be facing absolute disaster with losses to Michigan, Northwestern, Michigan State, Ohio State, Iowa, Nebraska, Purdue and Minnesota. That’d mean we’d have a 4-8...
