It was a MTB kind of party last night on Badgers Power Hour as Andy, Arman, and Nate all joined in the festivities!! We talked Badgers football, hockey, basketball and more.
What kind of seed can Wisconsin basketball earn? Can we really kiss Badgers hockey NCAA tourney hopes goodbye? What the hell is up with Mike Bruesewitz's hair? Oh, and really Bielema, really?
Those were just a few of the questions asked and answered last night.... We also explored why a bet on March Madness this year is an excersise in futility, unless you are willing to be in agony! So, sit back and enjoy the latest edition of Badgers Power Hour.

MADISON, Wis. When Ryan Evans gathered the basketball with 2:35 remaining in the first half of Tuesday night's game, a palpable buzz settled across the Kohl Center.The collective hum of Wisconsin's curious fan base suggested everyone had the same question on the brain: Would Evans actually attempt a jump shot from the free-throw line as he suggested days earlier?Sure enough...
Wisconsin’s Ryan Evans has been horrible shooting free throws this college basketball season. Entering the game with Nebraska he was shooting 40 % from the line. He had made just 51 of 126 attempts at the charity strike. So it was time for Evans to try something else.
Considering it was bottom feeder Nebraska Evans could afford to try a new strategy at the line. So he decided to...
MADISON, Wis. Confidence may be an unquantifiable characteristic, but Sam Dekker's level of self-belief is almost always filled to the brim. Just watch the way he jogs down court after burying a 3-ponter, three fingers held high in the air for the crowd to see what he's accomplished.
There is a fine line between confidence and cocky, of course, and Dekker has straddled...
This video is on pretty much every sports blog on the internet, but I thought Ryan Evans and his jump shot free throw needs to be addressed.
Evans is shooting 41% from the line this season. That’s pitiful.
BUT! BUT! BUT!
He’s only shooting 39% from the field. Oh, it gets better – he’s just 2-of-23 from 3-point range.
Evans told the Madison newspaper that he’ll stick with...

Senior guard Dan Fahey didn’t come to the University of Wisconsin for NBA and college glory. He came to follow a dream and to make an impact, two things he has achieved while working on the Badgers’ scout team.
Ricky Wagner added 80 lbs and changed positions to become next in a long line of notable Wisconsin left tackles. He is atheltic and versatile, but how does that translate to the next level? We once more check in with Andrew Rosin for answers on what we can expect for the success from the man following Joe Thomas and Gabe Carimi out of University of Wisconsin to the NFL.
