We'll be Fine.....

I know....We just lost to fricking UW-Green Bay....A UWGB team that we should be beating by 15+.....A UWGB team that shot 50% from 3 point range, and 50%+ from the field.

But we'll be fine this season. It's just one game, people freak out over one like this all the time.The Badger have 20+ more to play, and we'll rebound from this. Just like we did when we lost to Missouri State, and at one point that season we were ranked #1. Just like when they lost to Pepperdine, we rebounded and won the Big Ten that season.

Give credit where credit it due though. UWGB played great, and they have a fantastic backcourt. Their frontcourt also played possibly their best game of the season. Also give credit to the UWGB fans who played a big part in the game giving UWGB another advantage.

Congrats UWGB you were the better team today, but we'll recover and still win 20+ games.

You maybe right that this gets the team focused. It reminds me a lot of the Wisconsin-Pepperdine from 04 where we entered the game undefeated and ranked 20th, and had our first true road game of the year. We got run off the court by a bad Pepperdine team. We ended that season in the Elite 8, and played with the eventual Champ(UNC) for 40 minutes.

You can add a loss to North Dakota in that list also.  It shouldn't happen, but it does.  Gonna be some long practices for the boys until the next game which can't come soon enough for them trust me.  I know Bo would never take a loss over a win, but this may be just what was needed after a huge win against Duke.  Gives him a chance to get them more focused and a huge teaching point for an inexperienced team. We will be fine and there will be more moments like this during the season with a team still trying to figure out what it's all about.  Remember, doesn't matter how you start, it matters how you finish.  Wisconsin is always under the radar and that's right where Bo wants them.  He'll have them all on the same page by the end of the year and probably in the NCAA tournament once again.
