Strength of schedule figures to be a big component of the criteria used to determine who will play in the coming four-team playoff in 2014. To that end, Wisconsin’s 2015 slate will get a big boost from having a game with Alabama on its slate.
On the eve of the NCAA tournament, hope spring eternal for every team. Get hot, rip off six victories in a row, and you will be national champion.
Wisconsin’s Mike Bruesewitz was known for his hustle and hairdos throughout the most part of his college career. For some fun, we’ve highlighted several of Bruesewitz’s different hairdos during his time in Madison. See the photo gallery in this post.

As we sit on the cusp of postseason play for nine Big Ten teams, it feels an appropriate time to revisit where we were just four short months ago, previewing a season that was about to unfold before us. Did we nail it, or do we need to turn in our Geek cards?
The Big Ten is loaded with talented basketball players, so it’s only natural that some guys to go unnoticed or receive less respect than they deserve. That’s why I compiled my 2012-13 All-Big Ten Underrated Team. Who made the list? Find out in this post. Did I forget anyone? If so, leave it in the comment box at the bottom of the post.
Big Ten fans and Wisconsin fans, in particular, are going to hear a lot about Marshall Henderson between now and Friday’s Wisconsin-Ole Miss NCAA tourney game. The much-talked-about Henderson receives more than his share of national attention, nearly as much the result of his personality as his overall game. On Monday, Henderson tweeted about facing the Badgers.
Wisconsin may be under-seeded as a No. 5, but it could be pushed by No. 12 Ole Miss and Marshall Henderson in the opener. The Rebels are hot, coming off the SEC tourney title. This team can score. But good defense typically trumps good offense. And no one does defense like the Badgers.
