Wisconsin football is one of the most interesting studies in all of college football. It's a team that deserves far more recognition than it's receiving for multiple reasons, but having already lost two games this season, the Badgers aren't on the radar of many.
In the Badgers' five victories, they have won by an average margin of five touchdowns, but in their two losses—one of which is heavily disputed—Wisconsin has lost by a combined nine points.
That loss, which came in the wee hours of Sunday morning on Sept. 14, will infamously be remembered for this, but it has been treated just like any other loss by poll voters. Considering the Badgers' only other loss came on the road against a Top 5 team by seven points, it's a crime that Wisconsin didn't crack the initial BCS rankings.
There's also the fact that the Badgers have the best running back in the nation in Melvin Gordon, a future pro at receiver in Jared Abbrederis and one of the best middle linebackers in the country, Chris Borland.
But alas, Wisconsin gets no love.
Well, it's time to show our love for the Badgers, a team that could very well run the table over their final five games and make a run at a BCS bowl. Amazingly, we're already halfway through the 2013 college football season, so let's hand out some midseason awards to Wisconsin's coaches and players.
