The UW Badgers will take on the Oregon Ducks in the 2012 Rose Bowl January 2nd, 2012 and how sweet it is to return to the Grand Daddy of them all for the second straight year. Let us be clear the ultimate goal for the 2011 Badgers after the signing of the outstanding QB Russell Wilson was the National Championship, however that goal was flawed due to the caliber of this years defense making a trip to the 2012 Rose Bowl for the Badgers is a real accomplishment and don't forget it. In sports the toughest thing is repeating your success and the Badgers have done that, the Big Ten Championship win over a MSU playing with all the desire in the world was a real accomplishment that this program, its players, coaches and all associated should be extremely proud of for years to come.
Right now the UW Badgers are not favored in the 2012 Rose Bowl against Oregon and we will get to breaking down the game in the coming days, however we want to first state why this game is great. First unlike 2011 the Badgers get a traditional Pac 12 foe in Oregon unlike TCU last year, TCU deserved to be in that game and was a truly great team it is a shame that the 2011 squad has to listen to the junk about loosing to a "lower" program in TCU. Next call us sentimental but it is pretty cool Ron Dayne will be inducted into the Rose Bowl Hall of Fame as the Badgers make a return trip with the should be Heismen winner Montee Ball (yes we know he is going to be ripped off). There are all sorts of reasons to be grateful but we will leave with the obviuse and that is despite not being favored the two high octain offenses in Wisconsin and Oregon guarantee this game to be sexy in the eyes of the media and the nation (always a good thing recruiting wise), and if the Badgers beat Oregon the nation will see the Badgers for the top 3 or 4 team they were this season.
Stay tuned for our extensive coverage of the Badgers in the 2012 Rose Bowl in the days to come.
