22 point loss. pathetic bucknuts.
seemed like the coaches had some words for each other at the end.
I bought some batteries, but they weren't included... so I had to buy them again. What do batteries run on?
Around the B1G....
Minny was up 21-5 on Hox.
Hox now lead 34-29 at half.
Need to win there. They stink.
Most coaches do talk briefly after a game, well besides Crean when he loses
No one cares about Iowa...
Iowa could become an interesting dilemma for the committee if they continue to win. Assuming they win the games they should and beat Illinois at home, they'd be 10-8 in the Big 10. That will put them squarely on the bubble.
Eventually these highly ranked, Nordic looking hordes that Bo has a direct line to will take note of what happened to Brian Butch, Greg Stiemsma, Jason Bohanon etc.. And decide that they would like to play offense at least occasionally during their 4 years.
Dekker would be a great fit at MSU, alas he's doomed to a perpetual career of perimeter passing and shooting with <5 on the shotclock.

"losing Caleb Benenoch is a blow that Dantonio will never recover from. Izzo has lost it as well. Hoke and Beilein own the state."
Greg Stiemsma is playing in the NBA

This win justifies my computer ranking Wisconsin #1.
I don't know, if I was a big time recruit watching Wisconsin beat Indiana, Michigan and OSU I'd be thinking: "Man, if Bo Ryan can get a team that looks like they'd get beat by a girls CYO team to win then imagine what he can do with me?!!"
Wisconsin scored in the 70's today and dominated. Fun game to watch actually
My god you're right. I take it all back. Elite level recruits should strive to play in an offense that discourages shots with > 5 seconds on the clock. Those blistering career averages of 10mpg, 2.7ppg, 2.3rpg, and 0.8 apg are also very enticing. That he's in the NBA shows what a severe mismanagement of talent that appears to be.
Wuh? I don't think Crean has ever beaten Bo Ryan while at IU and Beilein hasn't beaten him barely at all. Bo's probably like "Damn I wish I could play those guys again!"
If you can beat IU @IU then I doubt Bo would be afraid of getting Indiana in Madison. Especially considering his dominance over Crean
I think your argument can end with one basic and simple truth about Wisconsin's program:
Has any player NOT improved while in Madison? Bo's players always seem to get better.
Bo Ryan deserves more credit than he gets from his critics and less credit than he gets from his fans.
Sure. Look at stiemsma and tell me if he was appreciably better as a senior than sophomore. Brian Butch also never evolved into much of anything for a 7 footer that could shoot. Joe Krabbenhoft is known more for being a dirty, flopping doucher than for his talent. Bo's done a very good job crafting a roster specifically designed to play the muck it up brand of ball capable of sustained success within the BIG. Not wining the conference mind you (with 1 exception the last decade), just staying in the upper echelon. With the talent he gets he should be playing a more offensive brand of basketball, not this "first one to 50 wins" slop he's doing. Don't buy the line about him doing more with less, he recruits just fine.
Wisconsin has had ONE McDonald's AA in Bo's 12 years. One.
I don't think I ever see Wisconsin in the Top 15 of Rivals or Scouts class rankings. Compare that to other schools that routinely are and yes, Bo definitely does more with less.
There just historically isn't much top 25 talent in Wisconsin. If there is, it's in Milwaukee and that's Marquette's backyard
Yes, I'm sure Bo would give up games against Penn State and Northwestern to play Indiana and Michigan.
At least you badgers finally stopped keeping track of Bo's record against Izzo and have moved on to Crean and Beilein. Crean will own you soon enough.
He definitely teaches them to flop more than most coaches do.
Yes, that's exactly what the big time recruits are saying
lol. i meant angered words.
Team A misses:
Team B misses:
Team C misses:
Team D misses:
Team E misses:
Pretty clear that team B has the easiest big10 schedule. It is a huge benefit to team B, C, and D since they get to miss games against contenders and get 2 games against PSU. It is a huge disadvantage to teams A and E that they don't get PSU twice, and have to play every contender twice.
Claiming otherwise is stupid.

Going back 10 years (and ahead to '13 & '14). Bo has had/will have the following.
5*:Brian Butch, Joe Krabbenhoft, Sam Dekker
4*:Greg Stiemsma, Jason Bohannon, Trevon Hughes, Jon Leuer, Keaton Nankivil, Jared Berggren, Bronson Koenig,
3*:Zach Morley, Kam Taylor, Michael Flower, Deaaron Williams, Marcus Landry, JP Gavinski, Tim Jarmusz, Jordan Taylor, Robert Wilson, Ian Markolf, Mike Bruesewitz, Diamond Taylor, Evan Anderson, Ben Brust, Duke Dukan, Josh Gasser, Traevon Jackson, Frank Kaminski, George Marshall, Jarrod Uthoff, Vitto Brown, Riley Dearring, Nigel Hayes, Ethan Happ
Stop it with the leftovers and sisters of the poor type of recruits that Bo magically molds from uncoordinated goons into efficient players. There are plenty of programs in America, and in the BIG that would take recruits like that.
Well I'm not a Wisconsin fan so I don't know why you are saying "we" but ok.
I think Crean would have to beat Bo every game for 5 straight years to even tie Bo much less "own" him. If he couldn't do it this year in Bloomington with the #1 team and with Wisconsin missing Josh Gasser then when will he?!!
You literally have one post that has nothing to do with Wisconsin. That's naming locations that people want to live. You're not fooling anyone, just admit your allegiance and move on. Being a fan of vampires is ok, just don't turn your back on Bo.
