Well, Sunday's 63-60 win at Ohio State sure was a nice surprise. After seeing UW teams suffer some unlikely losses the past few months I was expecting some heart-wrenching 5 point play by Craft at the end of the game. Hopefully things are starting to go UW's way again.
A few notes courtesy of the Twittterverse:
- The Badgers beat a top-10 Big Ten team on the road for the first time since 1980.
- UW beat Illinois, Purdue, and Ohio State on the road in the same season fro the first time in almost 100 years (1913).
- Jared Sullinger is a *****. Although, he had cold last week so we should take it easy on him. We don't want his daddy complaining about those mean Badger bloggers.
The perspective from this Ohio blogger is that Sunday's game had more to do with OSU not playing well. He also thinks it was a bad loss. Not sure losing to a top-20 team is "bad" but I'm sure most poisonous nuts fans had this penciled in as a W.
In his post-game thoughts Jeff Potrykus writes that this was UW's most impressive road win in his three years on the beat. I would think a win against a top ten Big Ten team on the road for the first time in over 30 years would be.

Wisconsin #18 vs Ohio State #8
Wiscy sounds good to me but the Buckeyes don’t see it like me. Ohio State has been a big disappointment but could still prove to destroy your March Madness bracket as they look to show us glimpses of the greatness we believed they would have this season. OSU is 2-2 in their last 4 and need to win their final 3 to gain the momentum they need...
