“The stats look good, the highlights look good and we got out there and they looked even better. It's hard to explain what happened out there. They were just better.”

We're going to explore the big picture versus the bigger picture today. There has been a fair amount of angst registered following the Badgers' dismissal from the NCAA Midwest Regional by Davidson on Friday ... via Green Bay Press-Gazette

Ok story, but do we want to gp back to the cofield era where studs were recruited and played stupidly and left school anyway with no pride for our state?

Some important points you forget:

1. Sure Davidson was a lower seed, but the way they played Kansas today sealed the deal that they could easily have been a 2 or 3...like Wisconsin.
2. It was a 3 point game with about 14 minutes left, and our best player wasn't even playing. His 25 points last week would have fit in well, not to mention his abilty to drive to the basket and score, or dish off to our bigs.
3. We had a real good team (no I) and for the second syraight year a key injury hurt our chances.

I'll take Bo and his program any day. A close friend of mine, a tarheel fan said "Don't regulate your team to the second tier because of that loss."

I agree.....many, many other teams would have traded places with Bucky that night on the national stage.
