I don’t like the Graham Mertz slander I’m seeing right now. Northwestern has a good defense. Badgers will figure it out second half
Graham Mertz ➡️ Chimere Dike.
#Badgers strike back in Evanston.
Wisconsin QB Graham Mertz on the team's focus moving forward: "We’re going to flush it and we’re going to go get the axe. We’re going to keep the axe."
Interception #3 for Mertz! Picked off by Greg Newsome, his first of the season.
Are #Badgers fans going to be nice to Graham Mertz? Because they should.
He's a redshirt freshman. It'll be ok, guys.
Graham Mertz said it's all about the response moving forward. "I'm excited to see where this team takes the next step. We're going to learn from it tomorrow, flush it and keep the axe."
Peyton Ramsey threw two touchdown passes and No. 19 Northwestern shut down Graham Mertz and No. 10 Wisconsin for a 17-7 victory that put the undefeated Wildcats in control of the Big Ten West. https://t.co/PqblgTyaP1
Graham Mertz: Northwestern is a great veteran defense. They knew what was coming with our progressions. Obviously something I love to get back but take it as a learning experience and hope to grow from it. #Badgers
Graham Mertz: I didn't see any lose in the fight. We prepped all week that it was going to be a fist fight. That goes to show we truly are a family and we love each other.
The pass rush group of Eku Leota, Adetomiwa Adebaowre and Earnest Brown are playing incredible, especially in this second half. Mertz looks extremely uncomfortable.
We got clobbered. Our Freshman QB finally took some lumps today. The WI D played great. The Offense was a complete no show. D Coordinator for Northwestern dialed up his D against a rook today and showed Mertz isn't quite ready just yet. He's going to be a good one. But not today.
Graham Mertz on not having Davis and Pryor: It's next man up here. We got young guys here and I proud of how they worked all week and how they responded.
I just don't understand the need for twitter fleet, I post actual garbage at all hours, why would I not want to go back and laugh at 5 weeks ago Austin saying Mertz for heisman?

"I'm excited to see where this team takes the next step. It's going to be a great team from this point on. We're gonna go get the axe. We're gonna keep the axe."
has Michigan's Joe Milton, @CodyTalksNFL
has Wisconsin's Graham Mertz, and I have Oregon's Tyler Shough as under the radar future draft prospects. Who will win this battle in the coming years?

Graham Mertz targets vs. Northwestern:
Ferguson - 9
Dike, Groshek - 7
Dunn - 5
Krumholz - 4
Bracey - 3
Eschenbach, Stokke - 2
Rucci, Watson - 1
No Pryor. No Davis. Ferguson goes out hurt. Kinda hard to beat a good defense without your weapons. Plus, Mertz looked human today. I really like Berger though...the New Jersey RB pipeline continues.
Excited to see Mertz next week. Our first chance to see how he and this team responds. Look out!
Post Game thoughts: Of course I’m upset with the result of the game. Graham Mertz threw 3 ints but the defense played well. NU didn’t score off of any of the turnovers. This game can’t be blamed on the Refs at the end of the day...
Ryan they scored 7 points on offense. Refs were bad but you can’t blame them for the entire game when the offense only scores 7 points. Unfortunately this season is over but Mertz will be back and ready next year.
Mertz was anointed the savior too soon after playing 2 trash defenses. Playing a top defense shorthanded on O with lots of youth at skill positions isn't a recipe for success in a game like this.
Deleted the earlier tweet because it didn’t come out right. Sounded way too harsh on Mertz. Not the intent.
Lolol what happened to graham mertz being the second coming of Jesus??
It was fugly. Mertz looked a little overwhelmed at times....as he should being a frosh vs a good D. I think the future is bright for Buckys offense next couple years. But this year we will get some Jack Coan sightings again soon
UW allowed Northwestern to control the action and failed to generate offensive consistently en route to a 17-7 loss, dropping UW to 1-6 in its last seven trips to Evanston. https://t.co/7rc2GHVeUy
