Football Report Card

first_imgGame Ball goes to: P.J. Hill, RB, WisconsinFreshman corner Aaron Henry played extremely well, picking up two and a half sacks. However, the consistency and success of P.J. Hill running the ball earns him player of the game honors.Going against one of the nation’s best run defenses and a unit that hadn’t given up a touchdown all season, Hill ran the ball down Iowa’s throat to score the go-ahead touchdown early in the fourth quarter. His 113 rushing yards nearly doubled the amount Iowa had given up in its previous three games.Overall: BInventing new ways to win all the time, the Badgers prevailed once more, this time against a terrific Iowa defense. Hill amassed 100 yards on the ground for the third straight game, and the Badgers picked up first downs when it mattered most. After three lackluster performances, the defense kept the Iowa offense at bay with tremendous pressure on Hawkeye quarterback Jake Christensen. Punter Ken DeBauche also rediscovered his game, helping Wisconsin get out of some tough jams in the field position game.Although UW committed several turnovers and failed to force any, the Badgers stuck to their strengths and came away victorious.Offense: C+ As was the case two weeks ago against UNLV, the offense did just enough to slip past Iowa Saturday.For the better part of the first half, the unit struggled. It accumulated 72 yards on its touchdown-scoring drive, but just 69 yards otherwise. Two turnovers didn’t help the situation, nor did 1 of 8 on third downs. The second half was a different story as Wisconsin used strong runs by Hill and big third-down conversions to march down the field and score the go-ahead touchdown early in the fourth quarter.A credit to the Badger offense: They were facing a terrific Hawkeye defense that, entering the game, hadn’t allowed a touchdown all season.Defense: A-Bret Bielema withheld his defensive players from the media last week, explaining that the first time that they’d talk would be with their play Saturday. Well, they had a lot to say: two-and-a-half sacks by freshman Aaron Henry, a lot of pressure on Iowa quarterback Jake Christensen and just 228 total yards allowed. The biggest difference from weeks past, aside from facing a more traditional Iowa offense rather than the spread, was UW’s ability to stop IU on third downs. Iowa finished 2 of 16 in that department and 0 of 5 in the second half.Special Teams: C+Punter Ken DeBauche regained his form that tabbed him as a preseason third-team All-American, according to Street & Smith’s. He booted eight punts for 381 yards (a 47.6 average), including a 58-yard boom and a pooch kick that was downed on the Iowa one-yard line. Kicker Taylor Mehlhaff remained perfect on field goal tries this season, nailing a 40-yarder, and defensive tackle Nick Hayden blocked a try by Iowa’s Daniel Murray. However, the fumbles resurfaced: David Gilreath coughed up two balls to offset what would have been a very productive day for Wisconsin’s special teams.Up Next for Wisconsin: Michigan StateThe Spartans are coming off a dominant 31-14 win over Notre Dame in which their quarterback, Brian Hoyer, passed for four touchdowns and tailback Javon Ringer rushed for 144 yards. Michigan State has now won six consecutive games in South Bend, Ind., and moves to 4-0 this season.The last time these two teams met was 2004. Michigan State came away with a 49-14 win against then-fifth-ranked Wisconsin to end the Badgers’ perfect season.last_img read more


first_imgPadraig Mac LochlainnDONEGAL TD Padraig Mac Lochlainn has hit back at a newspaper which described Sinn Fein as a cult.“Who knew? The Sunday Independent today reveals that a political party supported by 400,000 people across Ireland is actually a cult,” said the Inishowen politician on his Facebook Page.“Wait till Dan Brown gets a hold of this. “Tom Hanks will soon be seen on your movie screens racing against the clock from Belfast to Dublin to Cork and up to Donegal to save us all from this dastardly Sinn Féin conspiracy.”Meanwhile Sinn Féin President Gerry Adams TD has challenged other political leaders to a debate about the past which rises above contrived outrage of the Irish establishment parties in recent days.Mr Adams said: “The issue of legitimacy is at the core of establishment outrage.“Other political leaders refuse to accept the legitimacy of the recent phase of armed struggle which ended with the cessation of 1997. “Although I disagree with it I accept that this view is entirely valid.“The problem for its main apologists is their inconsistency.“If the right to armed actions is illegitimate for one generation then it is illegitimate for other generations.“The a la carte approach of establishment parties which praises the Volunteers of 1916, or of the Tan war; applauding Michael Collins or De Valera or Terrence MacSwiney while condemning Bobby Sands, Kieran Doherty or other Volunteers, is an entirely inconsistent position.“All war is horrific. All deaths are regrettable. War is the result of the failure of politics, in the case of the Irish conflict this includes the failure of partition. A debate on all these issues is overdue.” SINN FEIN IS NOT A CULT, SAYS DONEGAL TD was last modified: December 9th, 2013 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more
