Wisconsin’s magic ride ended like a kick in the gut in the Sweet 16. After leading No. 6 Notre Dame for most of the game and failing to put away the poor-shooting Fighting Irish when they had a chance, the No. 7 Badgers let it slip away with some crucial late turnovers.

Wisconsin and Notre Dame in the Sweet 16. What more could you want?

Indiana has a winning record in the NCAA Tournament against No. 1 seeds (5-3). Wisconsin is two wins away in the East Regional from becoming the first program since UCLA (2006-2008) to make three straight Final Fours. Tonight, the No. 7 seeded Badgers face No. 6 seed Notre Dame (7:30 p.m. ET) before the No. 5 seeded Hoosiers take on No. 1 seed North Carolina (10 p.m. ET), and we talked to the coaches and a key player from each Big Ten squad.
Spring practices are in full swing across the Big Ten, as schools begin to answer questions as they prepare for 2016. And no position across the conference may be under more scrutiny than offensive line, which from my estimations will be a top priority for nine schools to shore up.
