The numbers could suggest otherwise, but Joel Rumpel and Landon Peterson were far from the biggest problems facing the Badgers. However, entering the 2015-16 season the Badgers won’t have the services of either of those two veteran netminders. It wasn’t...

Does Sam Dekker want Bo Ryan to be his roommate?

Following last week’s gardening shenanigans, we thought that perhaps Sam Dekker was just getting in touch with his roots by returning to Sheboygan following the NBA Draft. But the sky-scraping forward is apparently in no hurry to cut ties with his alma mater, the University of Wisconsin. Dekker has gone as far as to offering to bunk down with his former coach.

Bo Knows, Bo Goes: Wisconsin Feels Pride And Pain

Pop quiz: At what age did John Wooden call it a career? Don’t feel bad — I had to look this up myself. Answer: 64 years of age. Bo Ryan will coach his last game at age 68 after announcing that the 2015-2016 college basketball season will be his last. It’s not that much of a headline when viewed through the prism of age. “68-YEAR-OLD COACH CALLS IT A CAREER!” is not cause...

Bo Ryan’s final season at UW puts Badgers basketball at crossroads

If you would’ve told anyone alive that paid attention to Big Ten basketball through the 1960’s, 70’s and 80’s that the Wisconsin Badgers would be a college basketball power, they likely would’ve laughed at you.
