Sports round up

Posted by: Hammer / 7:49 AM

The Packers have played for 10 weeks. The Badgers have played basketball for one weekend. The Badgers have more wins (3) than the Packers (2). It's officially basketball season now.

I also caught a bit of Iowa's victory over Kentucky last night. I don't have anything against Kentucky, though I don't care for their style of play. They rely a lot on one-on-one matchups rather than team play. I kinda like Iowa because (a) Wisconsin has dominated them the last few years and (2) the Hawkeyes are Old School. For example, I don't know if Greg Brunner is actually older than Frank the Tank, but he's already jealous of Vince Vaughn's hairline. Meanwhile, Erek Hansen is 6'11" but he still hasn't grown into his ears.

Wrong again Hammer. It isn't basketball season until Feb. 28.

Right now it's college hockey season. You should be supporting your No. 2 ranked Badgers

I'd like to, but I just can't get into college hockey.

Has Mike Wilkenson graduated yet, or has he returned for his 11th year as a Badger starter?

The Badger domination of Iowa on the hardwood ends this year.

You forgot to mention Iowa's domination of Wisconsin in football over the last few years. The win in Madison this year, in Alvarez's last home game as head coach, was particularly sweet.

Wilkinson played 4 years and didn't redshirt. Maybe you're thinking of Andreas Helmigk, who red shirted a year, took a medical redshirt, and graduated just shy of 30.

Alvarez did a great job with the Badger football program, but I've never been a big fan of college football. The game -- at least the Badger's style -- bores me. That said, Iowa has routinely trounced Wisconsin in football. Wrestling, too, but I don't know if Wisconsin has a program.
