RIO DE JANEIRO -- Two weeks away from the Olympics, nearly two out of three Brazilians believe that hosting them will cause the country more harm than good, an opinion poll said Tuesday as worries grow over crime and budget cuts.Half of the people surveyed by Datafolha pollster oppose the big sporting event. The disapproval has doubled in three years, and the frustration is even greater in south and southeast Brazil, which includes the host city Rio de Janeiro.The popularity of the Games has dropped dramatically as Brazil weathers a two-year-long recession, and unemployment and inflation shoot up.Rio de Janeiro is one of the hardest-hit states. Plunging oil prices and a massive kickback scheme at state oil company Petrobras have depleted the states accounts so severely that the states acting governor declared financial disaster in June. The move gave officials the freedom to manage shrinking resources without breaking fiscal laws and opened the way for the federal government to send an aid package of $860 million to pay for security during the event.About 85,000 police and soldiers will be working during the Games, twice the security contingent of London 2012, but experts worry about public safety after the event ends. Rios murder and robbery rates have already gone up this year.More than half of Brazilians think that the citys security problems are a cause of shame. Officers have staged protests to complain about salary delays and poor working conditions, with police stations missing basic items such as toilet paper.At a recent demonstration in the airport, one group of police held signs in English reading Welcome to Hell.The state has also been skipping payments to teachers and retired workers.On Monday, teachers protested outside the training camp for Brazils soccer team, showing banners to the arriving players that read Money only for Olympics. No money for public education.Two tramcars of Rios new light-service rail system built downtown as a legacy project for the Games were vandalized on Monday with spray-painted messages: Fancy Transportation.

This should be celebrated because it will not always be this way. With the amount of money given to players by their clubs these days, it is a wonder that so many of those teams allow the sport to continue to take away many of their assets so they can play for a different team in the middle of their season. MADISON, Wis. -- Finally, Wisconsin had a breather.Tested week after week with close games against the Big Tens tougher teams, the seventh-ranked Badgers assumed the role of playoff contender in beating up on one of the leagues weaker squads.Corey Clement ran for 123 yards and three touchdowns, Dare Ogunbowale added 103 yards on seven carries and Wisconsins defense intercepted Illinois quarterback Jeff George Jr. four times in rolling to a 48-3 win on Saturday.The Badgers (8-2, 5-2, No. 7 CFP) led by 18 after the first quarter with two scores from Clement, and 31-3 at the half on a homecoming weekend at Camp Randall Stadium.After playing five top 10 opponents over its first nine games, Wisconsin beat Illinois like it was a non-conference pushover.Its very frustrating when you have to win games by seven or 14, and it kind of gets old, Clement said.

Today we didnt get the job done and played bad ball.Illinois managed a few big rushing plays in the first half against the Big Tens best run defense. Kendrick Foster finished with 75 yards on 15 carries.Wisconsin: A laser-like focus on the next game has been a strength for coach Paul Chrysts team through a season in which expectations have grown each week. The Badgers showed no letup against Illinois. Leading 28-3 in the second quarter, Chryst kept players on their toes by calling for a successful fake punt on fourth-and-1 from the Wisconsin 41.
