Welcome to what we hope to be an annual tradition unlike any other…our 1st ever Badger basketball honors. Not only will be talk about the players, but it is our goal to have a little bit of fun looking back at the season as well. So, look for us to talk about the moments, players […]
While the sting of a one-point loss to Kentucky in the national semi-final is still there, the truth is—it’s time to move on. The Badgers season may have ended bitterly, but the future could be very bright. So, let’s take a look at what the next season, the 2014-15 season, could be like.
Anyone else find the lyrics to UW students favorite sing-along, “Build me up butter cup,” are a wee bit ironic at this point? Seriously folks, I don’t know how much more of this “we’re so close, yet so far away” bull crap I can take. For those who don’t know the lyrics, we’re referring to […]

Our very distinguished and dashing…OK, maybe the face for radio-having, editor, Andrew Coppens joined 1080 The Team in Orlando, FL on Thursday to preview the Final Four and the road Wisconsin took to get there. Listen in here.
Throughout the week we’ve given you reasons why the Badgers will win the national title, and here we are…the finale on the countdown (I know, sad day). While Vegas sees the Badgers as a 1.5 point underdog, they don’t know the things this team has been through all season long.
How does one defeat the opposition? By getting in to the head of the opposition of course. So, reason No. 2 the Badgers win it all – opposition research. Bloguin’s own Kentucky site, Big Blue Digest, sat down and answered the six-pack of questions we threw their way. So, sit back and enjoy the answers.
We began giving you a look at the Final Four yesterday with reason No. 4 as to why the Badgers will win the national championship. Today it’s another reason to be optimistic about Wisconsin’s chances and that means we’re talking experience. I know, strange saying the words “Final Four,” “Wisconsin,” and “experience” in the same […]
Working on Wisconsin truTV team cast from Saturday night with Mike Kelly who knows a thing or two about the @FinalFour @TurnerSportsPR — Wayne Larrivee (@waynelarrivee) April 1, 2014
(Editors Note: All this week we’ll be counting down the four reasons Wisconsin can win the National Championship in our “Final Four Countdown”) When you think Wisconsin basketball, you think defense first…usually. Not with the 2013 team though, as they are giving up 63.7 points per game on the defensive end, which is the most it […]
Wisconsin went to Hollywood as the unassuming brothers in red and white. No matter what others thought throughout the weekend, it was one Frank Kaminsky stealing the show in the shadows of Disneyland. Thanks to his effort in both games the Badgers managed to move on to the Final Four in Arlington, Texas. Wisconsin won […]
