Hopefully today is a vacation day for you to celebrate our presidents' birthdays. If not, here's some Badger news to distract you. Rankings and Bracketology Looking like crap against Michigan State in East Lansing last week didn't hurt the Badgers the Coaches' poll as UW moved up two spots in the Coaches poll to #15. The AP voters dropped UW one spot to #16. See the polls here. Rankings are nice but this time of year it's all about seeding in the tourney. UW is still a #4 seed in Joe Lunardi's latest Bracketology. Lundardi has UW playing Middle Tenn State in the first round with Wichita State the #5 seed and Kentucky the #1. As far as RPI rankings go, UW is 24th in the Real Time RPI, #23 in the CBS version, and  #23 in the NCAA's RPI report. UW is the 6th best team in the country according to Ken Pomeroy. Penn State Post-Game UW took care of business at home Sunday against Penn State so I don't need to post any videos of swimsuit models. It looks like the Badgers practiced shooting Friday and Saturday as UW burried half their shots from beyond the arc; although they still had their signature scoring drought in the 2nd half. Watch the game highlights below and check out Eric's post-game thoughts on Buckyville if you want to dissect the game more.  It looks like Phil at B5Q was working off a hanger so no link to his usual post-game insights.
