I apologize to all Badger fans for putting them in the NIT a few weeks ago. Somehow, I bought into the hype that the Big-11 is a good conference and Penn St, Illinois, and Ohio State (that game tonight was one of the most un-entertaining basketball games I've seen since Dick Bennett was coaching) are solid basketball teams. I was wrong. Not because the Badgers beat them, because they're pretty junk. That's my bad. Anyway, Wisconsin's last five games include 3 layups (Indiana, Michigan at home, @ Indiana) and one pretty easy game @Minnesota (the Gophers are terrible). @MSU is a tough game.
So, when the Badgers win 4 of their last 5, a couple games in the Big-11 tournament, and make the NCAA's....I apologize for counting them out. It's a preemptive strike, if you will. Betting against Bo in the regular season will never happen again.
In Other News:
Blake Griffin went for like 43-20. Come on, that's crazy. How about the Bucks tanking the rest of the season so they can draft this guy.
MU got off the losing skid beating a brutal St Johns ballclub. McNeal went for 20-7-7-5 steals. Yikes! Jimmy Butler is looking like a decent option coming off the bench.
