When one thinks of productive offenses, Wisconsin is not always the first one to pop into mind.
While last season was not that great due to personnel issues and repeated changes at quarterback, the Badgers' offense was ridiculous in the two seasons prior to last year, finishing in the top six in scoring offense in both seasons.
And it's all due to the system of punishing football that Bielema utilizes. It's somewhat of a throwback, big offensive linemen and tight ends paving the way for repeated run plays, then play-action deep or to the tight end in the flat.
However, it's effective, and when you watch his offense, the pre-snap shifts are insane.
Tight ends, wide receivers and running backs shift all the time, creating mismatches and strong blocking schemes.
He also requires his offensive linemen to be mobile, allowing them to shift as well as pull into complicated blocking schemes.
It's a simple plan—overpower your opponent—and in theory when you know what's coming, you should be able to stop it, but not many teams have been effective at doing so.
We will see if he has the same good fortune in the SEC.
