So, is it true that the real season started this past Sunday with the win in State College, PA?
I would push it back to the win over Illinois. Incidentally, the College Basketball front page at ESPN.com is currently featuring a picture of Marcus Landry, and the story is that Wisconsin is one of the teams back on the bubble. One thing I was not aware of until I read the article is that the Badgers have the fourth toughest schedule this season. That won't hurt them when the numbers crunch.
