No question the Wisconsin Badgers were boiling mad with last week's loss to Arizona State.
But the Purdue Boilermakers were in town and they had to simply shrug off their collective disappointment.
To his credit, head coach Gary Andersen did a good job of not letting that fiasco get in his charges way this week.
It was back to business as usual Saturday afternoon at Camp Randall Stadium.
That meant UW used one of the most prolific running games in college to run roughshod over the mechanically-inclined opponent in the Big Ten Opener, 41-10.
White burst for 70 yards and a score in the first half.
Gordon crossed the plane three times and QB Joel Stave kept the defense from keying on the running backs.
Stave wasn't as sharp as he has been at times this season.
He'll have to step it up when the team goes on the road again.
For most fans, the season starts next week when Andersen takes a shot at the mighty, No. 4 ranked Buckeyes from The Ohio State University.
Urban Meyer's bunch tuned up for next Saturday's matchup in the Big Horseshoe by whipping up on Florida A&M, 76-0.
And the Buckeyes mercifully took the foot off the accelerator in the fourth quarter in that one.
This was despite the fact that OSU QB Braxton Miller sat this one out.
Backup Kenny Guiton managed to connect on six touchdown passes in the first half alone.
Meyer has the luxury of depth to play with.
Nothing fancy will be required of Wisconsin if it hopes to upset The OSU.
They must simply stick with what's working on the ground and get a bit more out of Stave and the passing game.
He may look for Jacob Pedersen a bit more which should take some of the attention away from his Stave's favorite target, Jared Abbrederis.
