With March Madness now over and the weather starting to warm, Wisconsin fans’ attention can, at least for the time being, switch back over to the football team.
To have the greatest four-year stretch in Wisconsin basketball history end the way it did Friday night feels unfairly cruel and yet, almost heartbreakingly appropriate at the same time.
If you are looking for calm, levelheaded rationalizations as to why Wisconsin maybe deserved to be a No. 8 seed, then you have come to the wrong place. If you’re looking for total bewilderment over the whole thing, then welcome aboard, please seat yourself.

“I feel like we can run the table, I really do,” said Nigel Hayes, maybe.
Postseason play is only two games away, and the Wisconsin Badgers look like a team with an identity crisis.

Sitting upon his throne made of the skulls of his vanquished foes while sipping from a goblet of virgin blood, Nick Saban gazed down on the unwashed masses before shifting his Chaos Lever into maximum overdrive. And with that, a cloud of unbridled chaos descended over the college football landscape like a dense pea soup fog.
While most of the college football landscape descended into sheer chaos this past weekend, the Badgers held serve at home in convincing fashion.
For two glorious weeks, our power rankings had a consensus on who the top six teams in the Big Ten were. Unfortunately, all moderately satisfying things must eventually come to an end.
