On paper, the No. 20 Wisconsin football team had little business being on the same field as No. 3 Alabama Saturday night.Games aren’t won on paper, though, and the Badgers were out to prove that.Didn’t go so well.In back-to-back seasons now, Wisconsin lost its prime-time season opener against a Southeastern Conference west division powerhouse. Last year, the Badgers let an early lead slip away in the fourth quarter during a 28-24 loss to LSU in 2014, also in Texas.For the second straight year, the Badgers have missed an opportunity to prove to the nation that they belong on the same field as those teams.The game essentially ended when Rafael Gaglianone lined up for a 34-yard line with three seconds left in the first half of a 14-7 game against Alabama Saturday night.Had the sophomore kicker carried over his consistency from last season when he made his final 14 attempts, the Wisconsin football team would have entered the locker room down four and with a legitimate chance of pulling off an upset.But Gaglianone pushed his kick right and the ball pinged off the right goal post. Wisconsin couldn’t get it going again, and the Crimson Tide rolled to a 35-17 win at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.But after all of the hype heading into Saturday night’s matchup against the third-ranked team in the nation and a blue-blood football program, there’s still an entire season left to play. A whole 11 games to go. And fortunately for Wisconsin, Saturday was most likely the only time they entered a game as underdogs.Sure, there were mishaps and glaring faults Saturday night. Wisconsin head coach Paul Chryst said the coaching staff counted 17 missed tackles. That was the entire unit’s fault, outside linebacker Joe Schobert, who had a game-high 13 tackles, said.“Everybody on defense had mistakes the other night,” Schobert said. “Like I said, we’re gonna learn from it.”And if last season is any indicator, the Badgers will learn from it. History tends to repeat itself.The hype from the fans and media were about that one game because, to be honest, it’s the only exciting matchup for the Badgers for a while, at least until the standings begin to shake out and a trip to Indianapolis is on the horizon.“We knew who we were opening up with and who we were going to play for our last game and we knew everyone in between,” Chryst said. “There was a lot of buildup to our first game, but the guys have been pointing to a lot more than just that game. And I’m glad; it stung me, it stung the players. Any time you go out there and put yourself out there and compete, it’s going to — but also, our kids didn’t just point to one game and that was going to be it.”Like last year, no team on the remaining non-conference schedule poses a threat. The three non-conference opponents left are Miami (Ohio), Hawaii and Troy, who posted a combined record of 9-28 last season.Then, Big Ten play begins, and the Big Ten West is greatly inferior compared to its counterparts. The Badgers’ conference foes are the same as last season, when they went 7-1 in conference play before the “Massacre of Indianapolis” during the Big Ten Championship game.It’s not deja vú, but it’s pretty close.On paper, there’s no reason the Badgers can’t win the West and find themselves playing for the Big Ten Title at Lucas Oil Stadium for the fourth time in five years — and quarterback Joel Stave knows that.“The undefeated season is now out of the question,” Stave said. “But besides that, we still have everything we want in front of us. It’s just a matter of taking everything one day and one week at a time.”Stave did all he could on the AT&T Stadium turf, but a non-existent running game doomed the offense from the start. A year removed from losing the starting job to Tanner McEvoy, Stave shined in the spotlight, throwing for 228 yards and two touchdowns, while completing 26-of-38 passes.But players aren’t defined by one game, especially the first one. Neither are seasons. That’s the beauty of football, junior cornerback Sojourn Shelton said.“It’s tough to understand, but you just have so much more to fight for,” Shelton said. “Just fix mistakes and get that first W.”For the Badgers to succeed, Corey Clement and Michael Caputo need to get healthy. The offensive line needs to improve. The question marks are there, but the road to Indianapolis is paved — on paper at least.Problem is, games aren’t won on paper.
