Season started a few weeks ago. Why no talk here? Big game vs OK tonight.

The game is tomorrow and we already know you're picking them to lose.

I'm glad I didn't show up Friday night for tickets. Would have been a long, cold, night waiting outside. I root for Badgers sometimes. Was an impressive win. Does Ethan Happ ever smile?

You probably only ever see his game face.

I meant he doesn't smile during a game.

True but Nigel smiles quite a bit. Koening sometimes but not much. Happ often looks like he is in agony. I like players who look like they are having fun.

Nothing wrong with that.
I prefer players who win. They can look like they're pinching a loaf for all I care.

19-3 and ranked #10 but they look like a one-man team. If Happ gets injured they will truly be Happ-less. Hayes won't be going to the NBA at this rate.

I think Nigel Hayes will find a niche for himself in the NBA. The other players are in a shooting slump. It happens during a long season. It's a very good sign that they're winning anyway. On the road as well.

You haven't watched a single game this year, have you?

I've watched many games. They are sinking like a rock in Mendota lately. No elite eight this year.

vs MSU. 28% 3 pts, 52% free throws.
3 pts: Koening 1-9. Free throws: Hayes 4-12. Happ 0-3.

All it takes,is,to get hot for 4 games once you get in the Tourney to make the final 4. A lot of mediocre teams this year. Could be interesting.

Not if you're rooting for the Badgers to win more than one game in the tournament. This team is in trouble. Turning it around will be a huge test of Gard's coaching mettle. I hope that he's up to it.

Last year they beat Xavier in sweet 16. Remember Koening's game tying and winning 3 pointers? They then lost to Notre Dame in elite eight. http://www.ncaa.com/interactive-bracket ... all-men/d1

Right now they couldn't even beat Edgewood's team.
