I think LSU will bring the bigger actual fan base, but don't underestimate the 'JJ Watt' factor - he's a sports icon in Houston and his foundation is doing the Wisconsin tailgate. If he tries to rally the 'neutral' attendees, you may see a lot of red out there.
We'll be there (tickets through ...

That's been the rumor - that they did a deal with New England to get Mallett. Not sure for what. Had hoped that was just a rumor, but with NE taking a QB and the Texans not, looks like it might happen. Not thrilled for the Texans...

And don't forget that Houston sports hero JJ Watt is a Wisconsin alum - anyone neutral will likely wear red for JJ.

I don't get it either - our own decisions and the umpire managed to kill any last gasp chance we had. And wiith Hale at the plate and a runner on, we had a chance!

That imploding is contagious - it spread from pitching to fielding and our whole team contributed.
That all those times we run ourselves off the base paths and lose possible runs can come back to bite us even with a 4 run lead.
That those Aggie cheers in the student section can get really anno...

I don't know which is more frustrating - our base running or our hitting - I guess when we don't hit, we don't notice the problems with base running….sigh. And yet another out due to base running. Seriously???

I agree - conference championships should be viewed as a defacto first round of the playoffs. If not, get rid of them because it makes no sense for a team to watch a conf championship game from the couch and still be in the same 4-team playoff as the conf champ. Playing a conf champ game should be...
