Collin Wilder did not get to play much in the season-ending rivalry game vs. Minnesota, and it was a call that left the Wisconsin senior devastated, confused, and pissed off.

The questionable call came on the very first play from scrimmage with Wilder getting flagged for targeting. The hit was up around the head of a Gophers player, but Wilder did appear to lead with his shoulder as the receiver was in the process of falling.

Regardless of intent or the circumstances, a review confirmed the call of targeting on the play. With the call came a disqualification for Wilder as he missed the rest of the game.

On Sunday, Wilder referenced the play and admitted it left him “devastated, pissed, confused.” He went on to say he wished he could have given more to the Badgers and admitted he would “be the first to sign” a petition to change the rules surrounding targeting.

The senior finished 2021 season tied for the team lead with 3 interceptions. Wilder also had 32 total tackles, 3 passes defended, a forced fumble, and a fumble recovery.
