Carleton to the Sweet East or even the Big Seven?!?!?!
A dark horse for the March Mayhem?!?!?!
Let's see how they fare against Syracuse.
NEELY, where do you get your "facts" about them playing their third stringers? The lineup against the Ravens was Jackson, Brust, Gasser, Dekker, Kaminsky. Three of those are in the top-5 on the Badgers' roster for PPG and have played all 35 games (Brust, Dekker, Jackson) and Kaminsky is up there as well (32 games). The last one -- Gasser -- was supposed to be a starter but tore his ACL; this trip through Canada is his return to the lineup.
Who are the third/fourth stringers?
Now, I'll admit that I know next to nothing about basketball apart from a couple March Madness pools where I quickly learned how little I knew. So I rely on info I can find online -- took me about 5 minutes to look up the starting lineup (from a replay of a live blog from the game) and from there to check out the Badgers' stats to see who their top players really are. How long did you spend on deciding to dismiss this game as being just a win against a bunch of third stringers?
Hey, I don't have all the answers. In life, to be honest, I've failed as much as I have succeeded. But I love my wife. I love my life. And I wish you my kind of success.
