WI. Badgers Lose Again, Bielma Needs To Go

What do you think the odds are that if the Wisconsin Badgers somehow win the Big 10-12-14 championship game next week versus Nebraska, they will turn down the chance to go to the Rose Bowl team because they don't deserve to go?
Today, the Badgers lost again, this time to Penn State, 24-21 in over time.  The Badgers were leading after the first half but were totally outplayed and out coached int he 2nd half.  The only positive of the game was that Montee Ball, running back for the Badgers set the NCAA all time for rushing touchdowns.
From ESPN: Sam Ficken hit a 37-yard field goal in overtime, and Wisconsin's Kyle French attempt from 45 yards went wide left to seal Penn State's 24-21 win Saturday in an emotional season finale in Happy Valley.
The Nittany Lions (8-4, 6-2 Big Ten) could have ended it for good a play earlier, but linebacker Glenn Carson dropped a potential interception.
Still, the Beaver Stadium faithful celebrated anyway after French's miss on Senior Day capped a challenging year that began with landmark sanctions from the NCAA for the Jerry Sandusky child molestation scandal.
Quarterback Curt Phillips found Jeff Duckworth for a 4-yard touchdown pass with 18 seconds left for Wisconsin (7-5, 4-4) to make it 21-all and send the game into overtime.
Badgers star running back Montee Ball ran for 111 yards and a touchdown on 27 carries, and set the NCAA record with his 97th career score.
The Badgers are 7-5 overall and 4-4 in the Big 10-12-14 and will play Nebraska next week for the right to go to the Rose Bowl.  If the Badgers win, they will go to the Rose Bowl and if the lose, they deserve to stay home and not go to a bowl game, but because Wisconsin travels well, they will get an invitation somewhere because Wisconsin fans travel well.
But the bottom line is that the Badger coach, Brett Bielma needs to go.  He sucks when coaching in big games and games in which are close.  This year, they are lucky to be at .500 and they played down to their competition.  Instead of improving, the Badgers are getting worse and the reason is Bielma.  He needs to go.
And next week, and even though I am a Wisconsin Badger fan, and I graduated from Wisconsin, I hope Nebraska wins.  It would be an embarrassment if Wisconsin goes to the Rose Bowl, or any bowl game, for that matter.
