MEMO TO NATIONAL PUNDITS
DO YOUR HOMEWORK ON THE BADGERS!
"The Badgers play a slow down style."
"They score in the 50's almost every game."
"Wisconsin can't get up and down the floor at all."
Believe it or not, these are actual comments I've heard from the so-called experts at the so-called worldwide leader in sports. Memo to the talking heads in Bristol...do some homework for a change!
Dick Bennett is one of my favorite coaches ever, but last I checked...he's not coaching the team, and the Badgers have scored 71 and 72 points against teams that love to run up and down the floor. Hello analysts....just because the Badgers have the best scoring defense in the nation, and have allowed two high scoring teams 56 and 55 points in the postseason doesn't mean they can't play at the other end. They run when the opportunity is there...otherwise Bo and the boys are a half court team. Big difference.
See this is my beef. Fans love to watch these "national" experts who aren't experts at all...and believe every word they say just because they are on a major media outlet. These "experts" barely have seen the Badgers compared to those around here who have followed the team every step of the way.
And don't even get me started on Bobby Knight. What little respect I had for the man is gone. He thought Kansas State would win, he quit on his team this year (imagine if one of his players did that), and now he's working for the media...the same media that disgusts him. What's more disgusting is that the man is a sellout for grabbing money...I'd have some respect for him if he stayed away.
Sorry, it's just a rant I needed to get off my chest. I know I've done my homework. See you in Detroit!
