I give no respect to Cornhuskers at all. I give the credit to the referees, they knew if Badgers win this game, they probably will get to play in Milwaukee bracket of the NCAA tournament, so referees had to make sure Badgers had no shot at winning.

If anything they made it harder for Nebraska to win. The referees gave the badgers a chance to win or else they had no shot to win. Three call at the end of half were not called and all of the badgers big men shouldn’t even be in the game. If anything because they are the badgers they got calls they shouldn’t of gotten! The previous post must be a badger fan! But I do get that because of reputation you get some of those calls.

Where were you? First half, Shields and Petteway were mugged often and nothing called. Are you always such a bad sport, or are you a work in progress?

Surprise, surprise, the exact comments, I was excepting to get from my comments, which regret or apologize and Don Nelson, I am Badger fan, who thinks that officials, don’t fell the Badgers especially, when comes down to end and they gave a NCAA a perfect excuse for the Badgers not to be in Milwaukee bracket of NCAA. Badgers should have won in landslide.
