A good friend of the blog, Bret Bielema is celebrating his nuptials today in Madison. He tweeted on the subject earlier this week, “Great to see some of our seniors back in town for Senior Pro Day on Wednesday. Every NFL team will be here and is great exposure for all.” Bret Bielema, so much charisma! Oh you want to get him something? Don’t bother, the folks at bustedcoverage already picked him up an egg timer. You can find the highlights of his registry over with Spencer Hall and the kids at Everydayshouldbesaturday.
We at Shaw Lane Spartans are trying to find him a gift suitable of his many talents, the best thing we could come up with was a Nickelback Beer Cozy with an embedded stopwatch. This stopwatch would allow him to keep track of how much time is left in a game while allowing him to enjoy an icy cold beer and thinking of how Chad Kroeger really speaks to him. If you really want to buy him a gift of his own, bang it here to find his actual wedding registry.
No word on when, where or what the reception will be like. You can bet though that it will involve PBR, fried cheese curds and lighting a fart on fire while doing the garter removal. Bret’s a man of many talents. The wedding song will be “Every Rose Has It’s Thorn”. The best part is that writing the Wisconsin preview will be significantly easier this fall. Here’s a sneak preview. “Bret Bielema discovered women and all of their parts when he got married in March. As when all men discover women, their productivity in all other areas of life drops off significantly. The same will be true of Wisconsin this fall.”
Oh we play Basketball today?
So we do. Can MSU soil Bret’s wedding reception? No, nothing can be dirtier than I’m sure that party will be. MSU can however knock off Bo Francis Ryan’s goon squad for a third time this season with another well executed game. For MSU, run, run and run some more, give yourself lots of chances to score.Stop Wisconsin from outrebounding MSU or keep it close. Don’t let them back into the game with threes.
All of that said, knocking off a team three times in a season is not easy work. This Wisconsin team has not looked like the Bo Ryan teams of yore and Tom picks up his third W against Emporer Palpatine this season.
Prediction: MSU by 8.
