Gopher Hole from BadgerNation.

The Gophers cause these teams to shoot their wad, and Wisconsin comes in for sloppy seconds. It's not fair.

What does it take to not be looking up at the Badgers in the standings? Honest to god, what does it bleeping take? Because a 15-2 record, a #9 national ranking and losing only to teams who have been #1 in the country at some point this season doesn't do the job. We are still looking up at those lame-ass blankety blanks in the f-ing standings. I quit.

Gopher Hole is obsessed with Wisconsin in both football and basketball, it's incredible actually.

So much for Bucky not making the tourney. This is probably Wisco's worst team of the next 4-5 seasons too, at least on paper. Adding Gasser, Koenig, Hayes, Brown, Hill, Dearring to this current roster. Only big loss next year is Berggren (I'm not an Evans fan, Bruiser is replaceable).

Traevon Jackson's development has been crazy. Bo's just a great player development coach.

That game was in Madison and was non-conference. This was a bigger win.

Just wondering if anyone knew where Marquette or Wisconsin were at with the recruiting of Kevin Looney (2014) and Diamond Stone (2015). There is no way that Wisconsin or Marquette can let these 2 top 5 players in their class leave Wisconsin. We already lost JP Tokoto and if they want to compete for National championships they need these 2 guys!

Badgers are out of 2014 schollies, but from what I've read Dukan's is conditional so they would make room for Looney. Most think Looney goes out of state. Stone has Wisconsin and Marquette as his top 2 currently, but he's only a sophomore so a lot can change.

Stone would be a perfect fit for Wisconsin, given a true pivot will be their biggest need most likely at that point in time. I think if reaching his player ceiling in terms of pro potential is the most important thing to him, Stone should choose to go with Bo Ryan easily over Buzz Williams. But I could see it going either way. He was in attendance for the Illinois game in Madison.

Great win for UW. Congrats to Bucky on getting the ship righted and beating down a very good Indiana squad (again).

I didn't think the Badgers would beat any of the top half Big Ten teams including Illinois; I was wrong.

He said it was the biggest win since the Texas game in 2007. I'm pretty sure Texas is non-conference.

I just meant the Duke win was bigger or as big as the Texas win. Last night was a bigger win than both.

It was also a road game.

Has the Big Ten ever been this strong? You could make a strong argument that there are 6 or 7 teams with a legit shot at the conference title. My guess is at least 2 or 3 teams end up sharing it.

It's as good as it has been since early 1990's, IMO. That period the Big Ten was absolutely LOADED, especially for wings. Between 91-94 you had Steve Smith, Jim Jackson, Big Dog, Calbert Cheaney, Shawn Respert, Michael Finley, Jalen Rose, Voshon Lenard, and I am probably missing others.

Also, regarding Stone: My guess is he ends up at a blue blood school. His favorite schools growing up were Duke and North Carolina. Holding out hope that he follows Wilson to Marquette though.

I think there's a lot of parity and no really great teams in the Big Ten, which wouldn't bode well in March most years but there's parity all over the country.

Yeah, I haven't paid as close of attention to NCAA ball this year as I've been quite busy but it doesn't seem like there is much for dominant teams in the NCAA as a whole. I think the Big 10 will do just fine given that they have like 7 teams to wade through that parity in the tournament.

Yeah there definitely aren't any dominant teams in college basketball this year. Duke was probably the closest, but they didn't have a lot of depth even before Ryan Kelly went down. I wouldn't be surprised if the Big Ten had 5 or more Sweet 16 teams depending on what the bracket ultimately looks like.

So this was the UW locker room after the game last night. Wait for about 0:22 in for some epic Sam Dekker white boy dance moves. We are so white.

I haven't watched much WI basketball this season, how's Jim Jackson's son Traevon looking?

No kidding. Watching Jackson early in the year, it was shocking just how over-matched he looked as a starting PG in a quality program like Wisconsin, especially after a pretty long run of very solid to good point guards that Bo had in place with Mike Kelly, Chris Rock, Travon Hughes, and then Taylor.

Don't forget about Devin.

It got to a point yesterday that I was worried when Jackson fouled out. He was carrying himself like a floor general out there at certain points. That pull up jumper late in the 4th was the back breaker for Indiana.

Huge game tonight as it pertains to the Big Ten Title chase. #5 Michigan @ #9 Minnesota. Winner gets a big time conference win. Loser falls 2 games back of Wisconsin. This is the only time the two teams will play during conference play. Should be a good game.
