yeah not arguing that UConn isn't a better program than what I listed. The old big east imploded because the football schools were more focused on football than basketball, even though the big east was founded to be an elite basketball conference. If you need to expand and can find a school that is similar to what is already there, (smaller, private basketball only school), it would be a better fit IMHo



Alright, but FB is a pretty distant afterthought with Uconn I'd think. They've had a couple decent years and teams outta there, but it's BB school. Wouldn't they help out a great deal in negotiating a TV deal for instance?

Badgers signed '20 forward Steven Crowl from St. Paul, MN. Had offers from Iowa, and Minnesota. Shaping into a nice class.

11th ranked class in the country right now, I believe.

Hopefully this recruiting class translates into something special.

Considering the last two recruiting classes this one is pretty nice for Wisconsin. They already have a 4 star commit for 2021 too. This one could get even better and be arguably their best class in god knows how long if Carlson were to come to Wisconsin. I am sure everyone and their entire family is praying for Patrick Baldwin Jr. in 2021.

Since I don't follow the Badgers religiously I am not sure on their chances of either of those players...I am guessing Baldwin Jr. is more of a pipe dream than realistic. Never know though I guess.

Rumor floating out there now that Carlson is going to commit.

And the rumor was true.....huge get.

The Badgers have been doing really well lately (huge understatement) with their recruiting for both Basketball and Football. This has been a real nice turn around recruiting wise for both programs.

Carlson commits as well! Now the #4 class in the nation, #1 in the Big 10.

They're in on a number of top recruits for 2021 many of whom are making oficial visits over the next two weekends.

It's a great class, a lot of that is quantity though. If you added the worst 2 of the 20 class to the Davison/Reuvers/King class it would probably rank about the same. A similar class that comes to mind was Vershaw/Kelley/Kowske/Linton/Wils, a lot people saw that final four team as overachievers but Vershaw really never hit his ceiling and Kelley never developed a shot. I remember some similar hype about that class when it came in.

A lot of that ranking is the fact so many players are still not signed. Once that happens I’m sure Wisconsin’s overall ranking will drop quite a bit. It’s still a fantastic recruiting class for Wisconsin...just a little misleading.

With that being said I feel quantity classes are better than quality for UW. Wisconsin just typically does better with experienced players...not the kinds looking to bounce soon. Make no mistake they have some real solid high ranking recruits for Wisconsin standards. I’d expect a real Final Four threat 2-3 years from now.

The 2015 class was quantity that people were excited about, but the quality never developed.

Good to have someone named Chucky back in Wisconsin sports.

And now Matthew Mors commits. Another 4 star for 2021. Gard is putting together a couple of great classes the next two years.

I hope he is good but I wasn't incredibly impressed by his highlight videos. As always, the UW staff will coach him up.

Rivals has all the 2021 verbals as 3 stars and in the 100-150 range. Right in the Badgers wheelhouse as guys who will be there 4-5 years and hopefully be studs as juniors/seniors. Gard really doing a great job recruiting now, still needs to prove he can develop guys like Bo did but I am no longer in the panic mode I was when the Hausers turned him down. What a difference in a few short months.

Transfer Micah Potter, who didn't play a minute for OSU last year but stayed in school in order to stay on track to graduate, cannot play until the end of the semester at UW.

The NCAA is a total joke.

They are a complete joke. They protect the programs, not the students.

It looks as though Potter will be eligible starting Dec 21st vs UWM.

I'm going to laugh so hard when Hauser gets OKd to play at MSU this year but Potter didn't. I believe I saw a kid from Kansas played like 28 games last year and got OKd to play elsewhere this year. Then don't even get into how they let all the QBs transfer all over and play right away. The key seems to be playing for a blue blood name program in either sport.

Really what they should do is a media blitz on this and shame the NCAA until they cave. Jay Bilas would be 100% on their side, get on a few ESPN shows, Rome, etc. The public sentiment is so anti NCAA right now that the media people would eat it up. But, we know Barry is basically part of the system and isn't going to rock the boat
