Refs were bad tonight for the #badgers
– don’t turn the ball over
– play better defense
– start the game with energy
All of these things have nothing to do with Refs.

The second tweet is true. The Wisconsin Badgers were down by 12 points in the first half against the Penn State Nittany Lions on the road and that did help matters. Wisconsin also gave up 87 points and that was one of the worst defensive performances of the season. They took this game lightly out of the gates and that was a possibility it was going to happen on the road against Penn State.
The Badgers need to bounce back after this horrendous road loss to the Nittany Lions. The refs are the last thing fans need to complain about after the loss on Tuesday night.
