Spring Big Ten Preview #1 – Wisconsin

Obviously, this makes MSU #2, and I’ll deal with them in an expanded post next. For now, my pick for Big Ten champ resides in Madison. LAST SEASON – To say it was a wild ride is underselling the reality. The year began wth Bo Ryan indicating this would be his final season…then he suggested he might not retire after all when it appeared […]

I Know Wisconsin’s Going To Be The Preseason Favorite. They Should Be…But Look Out

http://espn.go.com/blog/collegebasketballnation/post/_/id/115100/nigel-hayes-to-the-celtics-ill-shoot-5000-shots-per-day-if-you-pick-me Nigel Hayes would officially have me terrified if I’m a Badger fan. Not because he clearly wants to go to the NBA rather than return to Madison, as indicated by what he “jokingly” told the Celtics in a recent interview. No…because of this: “In college I was always looked at as a four who […]

The More Things Change…Wiscy Lands 2017 PF Recruit Over Minnesota

Nathan Reuvers, a 6’9″ 220lbs PF who is a native Minnesotan. Bo Ryan got a lot of good work done in Minnesota over his tenure, beating out the Gophers for instate kids and it appears Greg Gard isn’t done on that front. Sounds like a typical Wisconsin big man recruit…good shooter, good ball skills, needs some strength which he’ll […]

Nigel Hayes Enters Draft, Will Not Sign With Agent

Interesting. Can’t say I’m completely surprised but he took awhile. The “non agent” thing will be something to watch. Will guys use it to gain feedback as to what they need to improve? Are they hoping to catch someone’s eye? I tend to go along with Izzo’s theory…you’re all in or you’re all out.

BTT Preview Thursday Games

Northwestern vs. Michigan – This is a big one for both teams. Northwestern is pushing for an NIT berth (not the automatic it once would have been for a Big Ten team with 20 wins) and Michigan absolutely has to have a win to keep its NCAA hopes alive. Michigan won the only regular season […]

Wisconsin Thoughts

– I’m of two minds about the end of the game. On the one hand, I understand continuing to play hard until the final whistle, etc. On the other…f*** off pressing walk ons when you’re down 18 with 2 minutes left. Second time it’s happened recently and I’m glad Iz brought the starters back in […]

Keys To Wisconsin Game

The things which strike me as most significant heading into a big contest for both teams. – Can’t put the Badgers on the line. They’ve been pretty consistent over the course of the whole season…averaging right about 22 FTA per game in both league play and overall. They’re not a team which drives the ball relentlessly or possesses Purdue style […]

Early Wisconsin Thoughts

Lots being made of Gard bringing back Bo’s Swing offense. It never got talked about as much as it probably should have, but Ryan really went away from what he’d always run at UW over the last two years, moving to a spread the floor, read/react approach. Smart move, because he had the players to make that […]
