    Earlier tonight I was curious and looked at rivals star ratings of Wisconsin recruits and I was surprised by how many 4 star guys they've had. Cause I never hear of these guys til they hit Wisconsin so I thought every guy except Butch was just developed into what they are now. Anyway... Steimsma was a 4 star recruit, gets 3 points and 2 rebs each of the last 3 years, that's just awful. Those were the only guys I saw that have been busts to one degree or another. That surprises me more than the Butch thing. And yeah I think Bo Ryan is a top 5 coach... if only he could get a guy in there that would flat out dominate, or two guys that score about 36 total a game with a third guy around 10 a game= championship. I think he'd be willing to really go hard after a 5 star elite recruit if there was a another year added to NBA age requirement like it's been talked about and that would take the Badgers to the top 5. He strikes me as a guy that doesn't wanna get burned by the guys that leave early. And right now he's recruiting the absolute right way to win a lot of games with guys that fit the system and will stay. He's always going to a have a good experienced team because of it. I think in private he'd acknowledge he doesn't ever have a true Championship caliber team but he's gonna keep winning a lot of games.
    I remember: Sean Taylor

      I still hate Marquette and hope Stanford beats the living piss out of them, but very classy.

      • I hope we get to see a Hansbrough/Love matchup in the Finals. It would be pretty epic.

          Is this the first time you've seen Butch play? Yes he did take a red shirt and he's been hampered by injuries as well. Butch is a very, very good player. Inside/outside scorer and a very solid scorer.

          How in god's name does Duke have 8 burger boys and barely beat Belmont?

          • I swear this is the last time I wear out the UK side of life but figured it was worth mention...

            We had 54 points by 2 players (had 55 by them at USC after Patterson went down) and THREE players scored field goals. Only 4 players actually scored, Michael Porter contributed a whole 2 free throws. Wonder if that's ever happened in NCAA tournament history. We had about 34 points and 12 rebounds sitting on the bench injured.

            • Thoughts from today's games;

              - Chalk, chalk, chalk...Only a couple "minor" upsets today, favorites took care of business

              - UCLA made a statement today, 29 points for their opponent? They're easily Final 4 bound unless something happens

              - Duke are pretenders...I thought they were a good team this year but without any inside presense, they are going down early...Another overhyped Duke team though, go figure

              - Notre Dame is scaarrryy....When they make shots. They are basically Duke with an inside game

              - Arizona fades....AGAIN. Granted they don't have a lot of depth but jeeze, they've got some studs on that team, seems like underachieving has become academic for them

              - Purdue could make a run...They are young but if they can get consistent production from Johnson down low, this team is dangerous with the way they shoot it and play defense

              - Balanced teams win (Duke is an exception today)....Look at past champions, not one of them didn't have an inside presence that they could go to. That's what will be the downfall of teams like Tennessee, Duke, Texas, etc...This new era of run and gun 3 point shooting is exciting, but more often than not a team that can score inside/outside is going to win and that's why I have UCLA and UNC in my Championship Game.

              - Beasley vs Mayo...Funny thing is, Bill Walker kind of stole the show against his former high school teammate. Great game and both performed pretty well, although I think you have to say Mike got the edge in this one in both areas (got the win and had the better line)

              - Game of the day on Saturday....MSU/Pitt, two very good teams going at each other, should be a barn burner

              • Oh and my upset watch...UNLV and Kansas. Kruger is a helluva coach and Self's teams are known to have let downs in the tournament. I think Kansas wins but don't surprised to see the Rebels take them out early.

                • I sure hope tomorrow tops today... I didn't get much of a chance to really watch the games but they all seemed pretty lame in terms of finishes less the Duke game. Duke/Belmont and Marquette/UK were the only ones not decided with a minute left I think, plus no upsets. Last year was rough too.

                      Kruger is no doubt a great coach, but I'm really not buying an upset here...UNLV doesn't have a great half-court offense nor are they great shooters...Also, they don't have a player over 6'7' which is really going to hurt their chances. In the end, Kansas by 15.

                      I really don't get the Bill Self hate though, every coach has been known to have let downs...Coach K has had a couple of early exits with hyped teams, Roy Williams lost many early games, Izzo has been upset several times...Every major coach has been upset before, it happens...How's life after Self in Illinois...seems like you can't win without his players...Please tell me the CBI let you guys in...

                        No, I've seen him before, he's quite frankly average...But I guess in the Big 10, he qualifies as a "very, very good player' and 'very solid scorer', jk ;)

                        But seriously, I was more commenting on how worthless the McDonald's All-American selections are, because Butch isn't all that special.

                        • USC screwed up 3 games for me, damn you Mayo I thought you were gonna go Carmelo on everyone

                          everything else has been perfect so far

                          • Oh and one more thing, I still can't believe why coaches are still going to these gimmicky defenses like the box and 1 as well as other zones in order to stop Michael Beasley. Even in losses, Michael Beasley has had great games (He scored 39 points when KU beat KSU by 20+). However, when KSU has lost, it's because the supporting cast (including Bill Walker) has not performed. If coaches would just let Beasley do his damage and focus on the other players, teams would have more success against them.[/rant]

                              Agree 100%. Nice rant and plus rep.

                              • Baylor, Arizona and Kentucky (to a lesser extent) truly showed why they belonged to be picked as an at-large team in the tournament. Seriously, how the hell did they let Baylor into the tournament. I could name 4 schools that should have been in before them.
