I'll be honest - I wouldn't be shocked if Wisconsin missed the NCAA tournament after losing to Ohio St. today, blowing another late lead.
They finish 19-11, with a pretty good RPI and very good strength of schedule, but they were only 4-9 vs. the RPI top-50, by my count. And only 2 decent road wins, at Michigan and at Virginia Tech, with a bad road loss at Iowa. So they played a lot of good teams and lost to most of them.
Maybe it's just the pessimist in me, but I don't think they're the mortal lock for the tournament that everybody else seems to. I hope I'm wrong, because I don't want Brad to miss out on one of his favorite things about the NCAA tournament.
I will also say that I loathe watching games against Ohio State and their stupid matchup zone. Man up Thad.
