JoePa had a rough day on Saturday.  His team stinks and got beat up on by Wisconsin 13-3.  He gets tackled and breaks a bone on the sideline.  Then he gets called an "old fart" by an ESPN analyst.  It was more stupid than anything.  Craig James was commenting about how Wisconsin’s coach "gave it to the old fart" by taking advantage of some new stupid rule before the half.  You just don’t call JoePa an old fart… even if it may be true.

Video of the injury.  Ouch.
