University of Wisconsin, 06-07, why all the love?
 
I was just looking through all the major websites, and it seems like almost all of them have University of Wisconsin as a top 10 team. They have Kammron Taylor, Brian Butch, and Alando Tucker as their main guys. One thing I don't get is how Alando Tucker is still eligable, it seems like he's played 4 years, is he goign to grad school or something? I guess they get a high ranking because they did well last year and don't lose anyone too important. I'm still not too convinced though, maybe I missed something. Someone please fill me in. It seems that Wisconsin could be like Louisville this past year, with a lot of hype going into the season and becoming a bust by the end. What do you guys think.

For good reason. They're the team to beat in the Big Ten, without a doubt.

That's a pretty damn good nucleus, especially since they're all upperclassmen.

Well, it may seem like it, but he hasn't. He played all of four games in '03-'04 and took a medical redshirt. Not that complicated.

Totally false analogy.

Louisville lost Fransisco Garcia, Larry O'Bannon, and Ellis Myles. Louisville was highly ranked coming into last year because of the perceived talent of newcomers like David Padgett, and projections of how guys like Dean and Palacios would step into starring roles.

Wisconsin, on the other hand, has pretty much everyone important back, and didn't lose their superstar.
