Wisconsin off to a good start. Anyone watching?
"It's not about last year or who's here or who's isn't here," says your head coach. "It's about getting out here and competing and seeing who is here, and that's where we're gonna go."
I mentioned it in another thread, but, uh, what in the hell is up with Duke's uniforms? When they zoom in you can see all sorts of ridiculous patterns and squiggles...another Nike cook job?
Yeah I noticed that too. Do you remember in the 90's when their blue jerseys had a denim pattern in them? You would think a university with such tradition would be careful with their uniforms.
Regarding the denim unis in the mid-90's, you're thinking of Kentucky. That was definitely not Duke.
I feel comfortable saying, without reservation, that those were the worst uniforms in the history of sports.
(Also FWIW it was Converse not Nike that made them.)
Yeah, I remember the Kentucky uni's, but I could swear that Duke had a denim pattern as well. Maybe my memory is playing tricks on me.
The Duke away unis were a darker shade of blue in the early 90's than they currently are now..... Now they are a bright royal blue... back then, they weren't quite navy blue, but definitely a darker shade than the current blue they wear... so, they were maybe closer to denim in color than they are currently, but definitely weren't a denim pattern.

sorry - computer malfuntion
lots of white guys on both sides.. haha looks like a CCRB game.. only with taller players
this game is boring to watch but I hope Wisconsin win
How the hell is this game boring to watch?? Nothing boring about it...
first half was...
you probably jumped in for the end
I flipped between Wisc and tUOS from the beginning. Never found the Wisc game boring. But my ACC and Big East friends have razzed me for a long time for actually enjoying B10 basketball, so maybe it's just me.
this might not be the best place to vent this but because in the Duke - Wisc game Holly Rowe was just interviewing Bo Ryan I figured it's relevant.
If you're a sideline reporter, whose only real job is to interview a coach at halftime, and after the games, wouldn't you practice how to ask questions, or not ask downright stupid questions [see lloyd 2003 @osu game haltime]?
wisconsin is going to dominate us; they are big, physical and play very smart
Oops just spotted the open thread for this. Guess I will take my comments to it.
Here comes Duke and their merry band of goofy-looking dudes.
I laugh at pundits who thought that Wisconsin was going to be a average, middle of the pack team in the Big 10 this year. Bo Ryan is a hell of a coach and looks like they'll be up there fighting for the top 3 in the Big 10.
OSU is sticking it to FSU with time winding down at Low Cost Furniture Arena.
The fate of this year's Challenge hinges on Wisconsin's ability to closeout Duke.
As soon as I type this, Duke blocks a shot and then gets a transition 3. Oy.
I don't know who this guy is, but he has a sweet flat-top.
Anyone else roll their eyes when with about four minute to go and Wisc up eleven and Knight said that Wisc needs to start milking the clock? I understand the philosophy, but going into a shell seems to backfire and let teams back into it all the time.
Dook proceeded to go on an 11-2 run right after he said that. Mutually exclusive events, but still...
That very much looked like offensive goaltending.
I thought so too. Thank goodness it didn't make the difference.
Is Musberger trying to jinx this?
The Buckeyes are layin a beat down.
Somewhere in the Duke blogosphere, someone must have been hosting a liveblog.
