Badgers make the Top Ten
Now that UW finds itself ranked in the top 10 of the Associated Press poll, what are the chances of it finishing there?
This is the 20th time in program history that the Badgers have been ranked in the AP top 10 at some point in the regular season. So far their record for sustaining that level of quality is under .500.
UW has closed out a season ranked in the top 10 nine times: 2006, seventh; 1999, fourth; 1998, sixth; 1993, sixth; 1962, second; 1959, sixth; 1958, fifth; 1951, eighth; and 1942, seventh.
The Badgers have been ranked in the top 10 at some point in the season 10 other times and failed to close the deal: 2008, was ninth and finished out of the top 25; 2007, was fifth and finished 18th; 2004, was fourth and finished 16th; 2000, was fourth and finished unranked; 1994, was 10th and finished unranked; 1963, was second and finished unranked; 1955, was sixth and finished unranked; 1954, was second and finished 17th; 1952, was first and finished 11th; and 1947, was ninth and finished unranked.
Let's hope the Badgers can finish what they started. GO BUCKY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
