This Just In ...

No bowl game for the Badgers?


It’s starting to look that way as the Badgers are now 0-4 in the Big Ten and 3-4 overall after another embarrassing loss Saturday, this time to Iowa, 38-16. Can you imagine, Wisconsin not good enough for the Motor City or Congressional Bowl games?

What’s the problem?

Bret Bielema is no Barry Alvarez. His comment after Saturday’s loss:

"I'm responsible for everything that goes on out there - offense, defense and special teams.”

Some people simply have no business voting

You won't find this on the Franklin Public Schools' website


Ouch!

From the Public Policy Forum’s October newletter:

“Milwaukee had the highest 2006-07 dropout rate at 7.76%, followed by Franklin at 7.52% and Racine at 5.33%.”

Down to the wire again for Franklin football


Here we go again, Saber fans. Remember last year’s rollercoaster football season? Franklin got off to a miserable start, but finished strong, barely making it into the state playoffs.

The same scenario is playing out this season. After last night’s 35-7 win over South Milwaukee, Franklin is 4-4. They need a win over Muskego Wednesday night to finish with a winning record and qualify for a playoff berth. Get into the playoffs and anything can happen, especially with Franklin’s high-powered offense that few, if any teams have seen all year.

Wednesday’s game at Franklin vs. Muskego (2-6) will kickoff at 6:00, and not the originally scheduled 7:00 game time.


GO SABERS!
