During the broadcast of today’s game between No. 14 Michigan and Wisconsin, Fox commentator Gus Johnson made a hilarious remark about the Badgers’ quarterback struggles.
Prior to today’s game, Wisconsin backup Chase Wolf had only thrown 9/12 passes with three interceptions since joining the team in 2019. Johnson announced his arrival with that glaring statistic when Wolf entered the game for a few snaps this afternoon. “Wisconsin’s quarterback Wolf never threw a pass that wasn’t caught…9 for 12 with three interceptions,” he said.
My man Gus with the stat of the day. “Wisconsin’s QB Wolf never threw a pass somebody didn’t catch…9 for 12 with 3 INTs.” 🤣🤣

Wolf has seen some action this season after incumbent starter Graham Mertz struggled to get off to a good start. Mertz has thrown just one touchdown and six interceptions through the first four games of the season, a far cry from his 20/21, five-touchdown performance in Week 1 of the 2020 season.
In today’s game, Mertz has looked slightly better, throwing 8/15 for 115 yards and one touchdown. But it hasn’t been nearly enough to keep his team in the game, which is now 31-10 in the fourth quarter. The Badgers’ preseason No. 15 team is off to a 1-2 start in the 2021 season as a result of this poor quarterback performance. With a loss to the Wolverines on the horizon, Paul Chryst’s team continues to dig itself deeper into a hole. Nokia News
