The clock management and play-calling on Wisconsin's final drive in regulation was a real head-scratcher.
After Michigan State tied the game, the Badgers' offense took over with 1:01 to go in the fourth quarter at their own 23-yard line and three timeouts to burn.
Two of Wisconsin's first three plays were runs, and by the time the clock struck zero, the Badgers still had all three of their timeouts on the board and only managed to move forward six yards after O'Brien was sacked for a big loss.
Another question that needs to be asked is why Bielema turned to O'Brien instead of Curt Phillips. Phillips is a senior and is the only one of the Badgers' trio of quarterbacks who hasn't received a fair shot.
O'Brien had his chance and blew it. He then let his second chance go to waste as well. We'll see how Bielema and his staff use the upcoming bye week to regroup, but the Badgers have now lost three games by a combined nine points, and some of that blame lies with the head honcho.
