Big Ten Geeks: Runnin' Badgers & Escapin' Boilermakers

Most of the Big Ten cruised to easy wins over cupcakes—with one notable exception—but the Wisconsin Badgers faced a formidable challenge against St. John’s. The Red Storm was mediocre last year, but the team returned everyone, including a healthy dose of rising sophomores. The team is expected to be much-improved, much like Wisconsin’s offense. And the Badgers definitely were better on the offensive end, scoring 1.32 points per possession, which was very out-of-character for last year’s team. That’s the good news. The bad news is that the defense was just as unrecognizable. Of course, there’s a legitimate point to be

Big Ten Geeks: Wisconsin 2013-14 Preview

It’s gotten to the point of cliche. “As long as Bo Ryan is head coach at Wisconsin, put the Badgers in your top 25.” We Geeks take pride in scoffing at conventional wisdom, but don’t some things become cliche for a reason? This is one bit of conventional wisdom with which we can’t really argue. With most programs, we can look at returning minutes, returning freshman minutes, and prior season efficiency margin, and we’re most of the way to a solid projection. Sure, we still look at how the pieces fit together, what the team’s strengths and weaknesses were, and what

Here are the podium press conference sessions from all 12 Big Ten men’s basketball coaches. Indiana’s Tom Crean: “We have a lot to learn. I think the biggest thing we’re trying to get accomplished right now is to get our team to understand — this team to understand what it takes to practice at a championship level and showing the standards of last year, not necessarily who it was, but how it was done, I think is the most important thing.” Illinois’ John Groce: “We want to play faster this year. Have we built ourselves for more speed? Yes. Will
