Wisconsin State Journal reporter Jason Galloway collected some of the best tweets after the Wisconsin Badgers fell to the Minnesota Golden Gophers, 37-15, on Saturday at Camp Randall Stadium in Madison.
Here's what fans were saying on Twitter after Minnesota secured Paul Bunyan’s Axe for the first time since 2003:
Same old story
Unprepared, uninspired, and embarrassing. Pretty much the story of the season. Hornibrook should have played his last game at Camp Randall.— E in Katy (@EP2KP2) November 24, 2018
Well, that's not good
Minnesota lost to Illinois by 30. That is all.— Matty Ice (@SconnieMatt24) November 25, 2018
A sorry sendoff
How do you not show up in what is supposed to be your biggest rivalry game of the season? Losing is one thing but getting completely embarrassed is unacceptable. Even worse than the BYU game and didn’t think that would be possible. Nice way to send Mike Leckrone into retirement.— J. Ross (@JRbadgers93) November 24, 2018
Smart or "smart"?
Thanks for saving Taylor for the Pinstripe Bowl and preserving Coan’s redshirt. Smart decision making.— Live Más 🌮 (@JoRy_MaMa) November 24, 2018
Quitters never win
This was one of the worst games, if not the worst, that I have watched in a long time. Hornibrook made terrible decisions, the D couldn't make tackles when they needed to, and it appeared that half of the guys just gave up. It was a truly embarrassing loss.— The Real Harry Doyle (@brewanalyst) November 25, 2018
Must've been those overtimes
The Badgers looked like a team with a big hangover from a 3 OT road game.— Alan Furlano (@AlanFurlano) November 24, 2018
At a loss for words
I just feel like there aren’t words to describe this season. What went wrong with a team that had so much promise? Terrible job by coaches, by players, by everyone. No one except JT even deserves the slightest praise. Just an awful year by everyone. Why?— Russ Evansen (@waunaruss) November 24, 2018
Playing like it's 1999
Personally think we need to new offense coordinator the play calling is so 1999 we have a great Recruiting class coming now on some players coming back we should do better next year— toby earl (@earl_toby) November 25, 2018
Hard to figure why no motivation. Vanilla at best but then the coaches are all Wisconsin guys, so where are the fresh ideas.— Tom (@wiscofficial) November 25, 2018
I hate doing this, but...
I know everyone is thinking a doom and gloom season but really I think with a better passing QB they win 3 more games this year. I hate pointing fingers at one player but this team was handcuffed the whole year— Todd Moroney (@toddmoroney) November 25, 2018
If we're blaming one guy...
Everything is on Chryst, this 5th grade offense, lack of QB development, lack of any type of passing game....the horrible performance of his staff, all leads back to one guy but I’m sure absolutely nothing will change— Craig Kanas (@o2b1cmk) November 25, 2018
Nothing to see here
Wasn’t able to watch the game. After seeing the score and reading about it, I’m ecstatic I couldn’t .— Jeff (@Jeff97216352) November 25, 2018
Fresh start offers hope
What an awful loss indicative of the entire season. Very disappointing from a talented team, generally outplayed in all facets. New season starts tomorrow, now what? Hope new recruits add some needed help, especially on pass D— James Boyle (@JamesBodeer5) November 25, 2018
Hey, that's what @TomOatesWSJ said!
All I have is a fitting ending to a very disappointing season— Tom Neises (@NeisesTom) November 25, 2018
Do the right thing
Decline any bowl bid and end this season. If players can’t get up and focused for this game, then the team should allow a more deserving team a bowl trip.— Erik Grinde (@egrinde) November 25, 2018
Hitting rock bottom
What happened is the story of what happened all year. Uninspired and questionable play calling on offense. QB turnovers killed any hope. Was bound to have a down year but that kind of loss to MN is lowest low of the season.— Jeremy Wojtecki (@jwojPAC) November 25, 2018
Set up for failure
Team came out flat, decision to start AH over Coan was a mistake, killed the momentum they had going into the game.— Badger (@BadgerBeatDown) November 24, 2018
Your future self may disagree
You going to ask Chryst about playing the qb that gave them the best chance to win?— Straight Margarine (@iyellyahtzee) November 24, 2018
Stuck in the past
Time for a new coach. I like Paul Chryst as a person but he is too old school. Game plan was poor and no adjustments were made during the game. To go from #4 in preseason to get spanked by Minnesota at home is unacceptable— Remy Cpa (@remycpa) November 25, 2018
You know how it could get worse?
Where do you start with another embarrassing performance? Too many negatives than room to mention here, starting with coaching, defense, special teams, QB too obvious. Better hope Mertz doesn't de-commit or we will be bad for years.— Phil Leith (@phil_leith) November 25, 2018
