In their NCAA tournament history when they take on a number one seeded team nickname the wildcats. They had a recent string of success. Not just making it to the sweet 164 straight years not just nineteen straight. Turned in appearances. But the teams are they of knocked out.

Womb when we talked Sharpton to ban on Thursday. How I mean we had said are we talking badger football next leaguer basketball and I think everyone collectively thought it would be. On to football Ben this is. I mean should we be surprises we are. Is it a cup question answer because. You look at this roster. And what this team here it's a group of heart and experience seniors immune but not all of those lands. Those years were Hart's follow all. Over the last three years Green Bay and they know what it takes to get a while for the military skip the national average in good order takes to beat. He opt to keep in the region and soul you look at the game on stereotypes. Can't par for the course in this group. But you shouldn't be surprised because this group. Not yet been it warms and out hurts. He's finishing kick. Also seems like they did on terrier and they picked a great time to do it I mean it was very impressed. After built one up seven with about. Five minutes ago I think everyone kind of went okay you know good bit this Metallica and they don't. This is our build all of a longer take over here they're like they're multiple that the straight national champ couple world of one do you. It was counter and because of their seniors. Didn't let that happen but Jeter's are meant it in a vibrant and again in the junior scored thirteen in the points. It was very impressive the way this team schori resilient the top that. They were ballots they didn't let. A very talent ability to get them all of their rhythm what they're trying to do use the best awkward for you this year. Beetle brawl was tremendous in this game it doesn't win that he would be brown. In the first half going art street retreat from three to help them get asked our butt out eat it up the last. Eleven what's Matt. Chaney coveted red hot Peppers sit on the bench her eat what they're after the campus or all. That was a tremendous. Effort by I was out there. Yeah how about this this senior class arm you know I think. You know you look at the turtle bit history. When there's been close games down the stretch. More times than not oh Kentucky when these guys are freshman. Soft Boris now losing in the chip chip gave no room. No fault of their own that was the Duke cocaine and the national championship game last year that if fielding it's Notre Dame and they. In the sweet sixteen but he look at all the other games they played the tournament when there was a close game. Down the stretch these guys always find a way to get it done. Got more more often than not you're you're exactly right I mean there's. There's some games in there where of course it went the other way. Certainly laster ignored it expects a lot sure iron Rick slot people frustrated. With how that you demanded a great turnaround. Coughed up. Basically by turnovers and you know it was kind of gone that way to win era ups that are pick and that. I'm in stereo you know long recruit shooting kill them. Turnovers killed on. The lack of consistent three point shooter six of eighteen. Although strings cart circuit and in my mind I'll be singing in the story line there again popped up there and there's either a lot like last year but. There's not so it certainly gave you can't. You can do all the metrics all the analytics you can't chart somewhere Hart someone desire thirteen. Will accuse you want to win her breakthrough here from Nigel Barrett sure will be bid team. Aaron Barrett stole many of physical challenges and returning games and marketer or not they want. Mean this group that beat you cannot dispute Kentucky team in the final or are you I a year after looked at 200 heartbreaking fashion. In the final four achieved that knocked up errors or twice in southern cal ordered just a couple of hours from Arizona's campus. This team. Knows how to win games against long odds would not make you'll give champs and that's why this program has turned into my period one of the very good programs and out that book not one of the top you know all and all of irritate you leak programs. Over the last ten pick to. I mentioned this earlier Michelle. What do you think of all the great high school bass players a Kerala state of Wisconsin. There might not be one more accomplished in a team role. And have big moments as much as prosecuting high school one Tuesday cheaply chips Kalish. Four sweet sixteens. Two final 41 in the national championship game at the big shot against Xavier get him in the sweet sixteen. The 83 pointers in in the first one in this one and the first game and this one are hitting big shots with a foul trouble. On on Saturday. You tell me a guy who's been more accomplished in prosecuting he has from high school and college playing here for teams in the state of Wisconsin. And I like to see if you repeat helping his junior article not a walker it can't go get a wrist injuries your depth of her. That good or so that he. And he came back and at what the name and then next year help you lead across right back to work it out. You're you're absolutely right in there it band. I guess you could argue that the better players I think you argue that stand Decker is a better player. With his resume but you know all these you just mentioned it means you are not out yet he did that too he did that took. It is impressive what brought in and out and got that McNabb champ in. They're three years 23 years ago about replicating. That at a trade objects and you lose your starting point guard. Here in January. Two broken. Bone under. I mean. Deck could derail a number it keeps. Wisconsin air force star point guard. Who had experience of the year before final four experience you're more on the bench and they turned to him and brought them up an engine running and he even. Increased. What that he was able to do. And got them to the national champs to game and that to me is one of the most accomplishment. They want to. Fight the greater speed and I'll ask them brought it or not are all dispute that. And at that very well and he but you are in it. I've done more or out. On the court and off the court debate people. Ever recognize right now. I know it better word go badger nation that Tom on Twitter. At the badger nation as as brats and caning underrated maybe there was a claim that Nigel haze over rated the the expectations on him I think this season were sol high and the way he's played in the last two games as he plays like that. The rest of the season people would be loving Nigel pays but he stepped up when he had to and some of this weekend. Yeah I think people are starting to occur all active overnight delays again and he's been terrific cents you know because Turk are. Where he told earn it again in the air rebound so I have a double double double bogey at Indiana and Michigan. And now the work that he critics here are these first two games the Germans you know it gave when he pocket. I inserted right ninety points eight rebounds. Five offensive rebounds went 39 that it in one turnover. That's what Wisconsin that it worked spectre of error ball and there are there were a lot of expectations put on him. From rampant even from the big cat named beat increasing Wear the year. And yet he still let loose ball get a lot all around. But you look at his play. All over the course the last two weeks in the year Wilbert further he has taken it to another level there as Greg guard against adapt to the game. In certain throughout the week. It's a senior who were trying to get the ball a little bit more. Who understands that there's not many games left idolized as most or games left. At Wisconsin geared cheap one. He sees that his time is ending in Nigel is a very proud person he feels that he would not. Left his mark yet. Yeah it felt that he missed out our champs for a national championship. Two years ago and he's he's good of course like crazy and our side at that this year. And I think the sweet sixteen. Wins Duke getting bumped off yesterday. I mean at the decal water down the scouts is got to take care of business against Florida but this regional. This road to the final four just got a little easier not that the school would be easy but it's not as difficult as the wasn't fourteen or fifteen. Yeah I think you could say that certainly he looked reports had fifteen you have a tastes the West Coast team. On the West Coast. And you needed very. Impressive effort and I you're still you're near part of effort this week yet you look at I look Laura yesterday and it's a team that built a lot like Wisconsin they are a very strong eager to unit that lost there are starting setter. With. Ballantine date. Who has outstanding with what he was able to do be attention you'd be able to command. That opened up opens up rapidly. It's cause Florida to grip to really put a lot of focus back on their defense and the work do you do against Virginia was tremendous. Are the work that they've been able to do all along with there're there're guards. I mean it's one up there's two seniors. Two juniors. And sophomore who is all. All SEC was up or four star recruit top somebody vibrant class. And here they shot the ball that well so our air and it otsuka plate so. This will be a theory right amount physical game that Wisconsin Lowell will see on Friday night and a late Friday night and the badgers. Have played that early game or those that.
