Badgers CB Tindal shoulders blame for two game skid

Posted: Updated:

MADISON, Wis. (WKOW) -- The 10th ranked Badgers have hit a two game skid but hardly anyone is blaming the defense for the losses to two top ten teams. Still, that hasn't stopped one defender from taking the blame.

Cornerback Derrick Tindal has taken responsibility for both losses.

Against Michigan, Amara Darboh beat Tindal in one on one coverage to make the game winning touchdown. 

Against Ohio State, Noah Brown created enough space to make a diving catch in the end zone in overtime. The Badgers offense did not answer with a score of their own the following drive and Wisconsin lost 30-23. 

Tindal posted on Twitter this week, saying "two games in a row I let my team down. The pain I'm feeling is unbearable."

On Wednesday, he discussed why he decided to post that statement.

"I was a little frustrated that we lost. You know, upset. Felt like I let my team down. But I got great teammates, they pick me up."

After seeing his Twitter post, Tindals' teammates immediately reached out to offer support and back up their discouraged corner. 

"It was awesome to see him do that but it was like, he didn't need to do that cause we know who he is and we know he's a great player, " said senior safety Leo Musso, "One play doesn't really define who he is."

"We love DT you know, for just doing things like that. It just shows that he cares so much, " said sophomore T.J. Edwards, "You know, obviously he had two tough plays that were just really good plays by the offense. Nothing he could really do but we're just trying to support him. Make sure he knows it's on us, not just on him."
