Sports gambling online heat was on Wisconsin coach Bret Bielema after a 7-6 record for the 2009 gambling sports season but the Badgers look to be back on track. Wisconsin finished fourth in the sports gambling online Big Ten standings and had an overall gambling sports record of 5-3 in conference play for 2009.
The Badgers had an online sports gambling mark of 7-6 against the spread with three payouts in their final four sports gambling online matchups. Wisconsin capped off their successful sports gambling online season with a 20-14 upset win over Miami in their bowl game.
Bielema has a career sports gambling online record of 38-14 in four seasons on the job after taking over for legendary coach Barry Alvarez. Wisconsin finished 16th overall in the national polls for 2009.
Sports gambling online expectations should be sky high for Wisconsin entering the 2010 season as they will have 10 offensive starters returning and 6 defensive starters back for the season.
Not only did Bielema’s team impress everyone in sports gambling online with that bowl win over Miami but the Badgers had impressive regular season wins over Michigan State and Michigan and were competitive in a tough sports gambling online loss to then undefeated Iowa.
Wisconsin was one of the better balanced teams in college football as they ranked 31st in total offense and 17th in total defense. The second half collapses and stupid penalties that plagued them in 2008 were drastically eliminated in 2009.
Wisconsin went from being a self destructive team to one that was opportunistic, disciplined, and well coached. Bielema deserved a lot of credit for taking the risk of starting Scott Tolzien at quarterback for 2009 after he was not even listed as a contender for the job on the depth chart in preseason camp.
Tolzien threw for 2705 yards and 16 touchdowns while completing 64.3% of his passes.
