Bucky Loses on last second call.


Two days after Michael Flowers’ final-seconds shot attempt was turned away by Purdue’s Robbie Hummel, that’s the message UW head coach Bo Ryan was selling. He wasn’t pining over the fact that no foul was called, despite replays that appeared to show some contact.
“We always practice with the idea that in order to get a call, it’s got to be something that’s pretty obvious,” Ryan said during a Monday press conference. “That young man, with his length, just made a great play.”
“The unfortunate part … is that the ball didn’t go out of bounds. It hit the part of the backboard there and went straight down. If it goes out of bounds, every coach and his team have two or three different plays off of an end line with a second or two to go, and we would’ve had a chance to run them.”
As far as I'm concerned it is all crying over spilt milk. If a game comes down to one play at the end you probably don't deserve to win the game. GO BUCKY!!!!!!!!

Bucky has a bad day in Tampa

A slow start and a huge passing day for Tennessee quarterback Erik Ainge were too much for Wisconsin to overcome Jan. 1 in the Outback Bowl, as UW lost 21-17.
After falling behind 21-7 in the second quarter, the Badgers (9-4, 5-3 Big Ten) battled back, but never were able to overtake the Volunteers (10-4, 6-2).
Momentum had seemingly swung Wisconsin’s way late in the fourth quarter. Trailing by four, Wisconsin had just blocked a short Tennessee field goal attempt and driven deep into enemy territory thanks largely to a 50-yard run by newly healthy running back P.J. Hill. But in the end the Badgers couldn't muster a comeback. I guess it is time to start watching the Badger Basketball team as they start the Big Ten season. A friend told me about a great site to buy Badger tickets. It is Badgertickets.com. It is website my friend has used several times and has had no problems. I hope I can make to Madison soon for a hoops or hockey game. GO BUCKY!!!!!!!!!!
