Here's the release ... it's being hilariously oversold. Six teams the Badgers will play out of conference will have made the NCAA tournament last year!!! You'd think that Duke and Syracuse were visiting the Kohl Center based on that. But no: we get such notables as Pacific, Winthrop, and Gardner-Webb.
That's fine by me. Don't kill yourself in the OOC when the Big Ten is always a dogfight. It's not worth it. But don't sell it as the Toughest Opponents Evar!! either.
If only the football team could say as much about their OOC opponents.
