#11 Wisconsin 66, Bradley 43I haven't talked about Wisconsin since the start of the regular season, and it's because they haven't played anybody yet. In fact, I'm not sure Bradley is much better than the best team they had played up to this point (Wofford), but at least Bradley presented a higher level of athleticism and raw talent. That said, Wisconsin continued to do what they've been doing, which is to destroy these inferior opponents. Even after this game they have still scored more than twice as many points (365) as they've allowed (179).

Despite the fact that Wisconsin's reputation in the national media is one of a defense-first team that grinds out wins, the fact is that tempo free analysis reveals that they've been an elite offense the past few years that has occasionally struggled on defense.

Badgers don't benefit from current tournament

HOFFMAN ESTATES, Ill. The setting was far removed from the sand, surf and prestige that accompany playing in the Maui Invitational. It paled in comparison to the equally picturesque backdrop of the Puerto Rico Tip-Off. And it certainly didn't match the feel of playing in Madison Square Garden, the so-called mecca of hoops, in the preseason National Invitational Tournament.No...

Badgers never doubted Indy was their destiny

MADISON, Wis. If even a smidgen of concern crept into the minds of Wisconsin's football players four weeks ago that their magical season suddenly lay in irrelevant ruins, they sure shielded that sentiment from public view masterfully. At the time, the Badgers harbored every right to feel downtrodden about their rotten luck. Back-to-back excruciating last-minute losses against...

Wisconsin Continues To Roll... This Time Against A Quality Opponent

#11 Wisconsin 73, BYU 56Wisconsin had been putting up gaudy numbers all season long, though against a joke of a schedule. This BYU game represented their first true quality opponent, and their first of several, as North Carolina, Marquette and UNLV are their next three opponents. And BYU did keep this game close throughout the first half, but Wisconsin shot the lights out in the...
