Bret Bielema sure has a lot to ponder this week, perhaps nothing more so than how Wisconsin's offense managed only seven points against Oregon State.
Update: Jeff Potrykus of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports the Badgers dropped to No. 22 in the coaches' poll. You can read his quick update here.
Well, you can't really say you're surprised.
After yesterday's miserable outing at Oregon State, a 10-7 loss to the Beavers that left saw the Badgers muster only 207 yards of total offense and Jared Abbrederis leave Reser Stadium in an ambulance, Wisconsin finds itself outside of the AP Top 25 Poll. The Badgers sat at No. 13 entering yesterday, and while it's still a pretty long fall out of the poll, it's absolutely justified. They did receive 44 votes, which would put them at No. 32, if you like thinking like that. Oregon State, though, earned the 29th-most votes with 77.
More commiserating will follow -- all week long, I'm sure. For now, you can check out the rest of the poll below the jump. As always, feel free to share your thoughts/concerns/nightmares from last night in the comments.
