It's been awhile since we've done this one due to time constraints, but welcome back to Thirsty Thursday - our weekly look around the web at what's being written and visualized about our beloved Badgers. This week we're focusing on the stories and interesting opinions surrounding the Badgers basketball team in the Sweet 16.
First off we'll start with a great piece by Jim Polzin at the Wisconsin State Journal where he talks about the sudden depth of scoring options for the Badgers. He's pretty on in this one and could be a huge factor in winning or losing for Wisconsin.

Wisconsins junior forward hit his first four shots to spark the Badgers to an early lead in a 73-49 win over Montana in their opening game of the NCAA Tournament on Thursday at The Pit.
He followed that up by hitting his first four shots Saturday against Vanderbilt to reach double...

(via @Sniff009) As for the other games, we’d like to give a special shout out to Bo Ryan and his Wisconsin Badgers for running out the clock on their season and then going for a high-percentage shot from beyond NBA range. No reason to drive and dish. No reason trying to draw a foul...
Wisconsin fans finally got their wish - to see Mike Taylor and Chris Borland on the field at the same time all season long this past year and boy was it magical. The two were enough to make the Badgers LB group the best in the Big Ten last year, but this is a new season and gone is Kevin Claxton due to graduation. There's also a change in the coaching of this position as...
