Wisconsin coach says players don't have to talk


MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Wisconsin coach Bret Bielema is tired of talking about his team's heartbreaking loss to Michigan on Saturday.

  He's also not too thrilled about his players talking about it either.

  Wisconsin blew a 19-0 halftime lead against the Wolverines and went on to lose 27-25.

  The loss dropped Wisconsin nine spots in the polls to No. 18.

  Bielema used his weekly Monday news conference to chastise the media for asking the team's four captains too much about the loss on Sunday.

  Bielema says some in the media forget that players don't have to give interviews.

  He says the rest of the world can talk about the loss, but those within the program can't spend any more time worrying about it.

  Wisconsin hosts No. 14 Ohio State on Saturday.
