It’s The Madness….Embrace It

Everything that makes the magic of college basketball the incredible spectacle that it is, happened on Saturday night when the Badgers knocked off the #1 seeded Wildcats of Arizona.

Kentucky’s win over Wichita State, the deep dance of the Cinderella Dayton Flyers; all of the excitement of the tourney thus far was eclipsed by the fundamental up and down game that we witnessed in Anaheim California.

RodgersAndBoThe overtime thrill, the 5 minute instant replay, the last second shot attempt, the unbridled joy and the chants of “Bo Bo Bo Bo” as Coach Ryan climbed the stairs of the ladder to cut down the nets. The Packers Aaron Rodgers yet again leading a joyous Badgers locker room in their final huddle of the night, a dancing 66 year old head coach doing a dance as if he’s clubbin’ on State Street and then revealing to all this this night would have been his dad’s 90th birthday.

The team that most look at as awkward, not as athletic, more defense than offense, old school….whatever the adjective you’d like to insert….it doesn’t matter. For this is the thrilling excitement of the madness that is March and Bo Ryan’s Badgers are still dancing.

On Wisconsin!

    Hi Bill, I have been a Badger fan all of my life. I am 62 years old and remember many many bad seasons. I remember when Bo Ryan was named coach and I was very happy. This man has been criticized by people who believe the run and gun playground style of basketball is the only way to win. I am so happy for Coach Ryan and his way overdue credit he is now given. This man has been to the tournament every year but until now he finally is going to be recognized as a great coach. I will always be thankful for the thrill this team has given me and everyone in this State. If they can win the whole thing what a wonderful accomplishment. If they lose they are still winners in my mind. ON WISCONSIN!!!!!!!!
