Couple things. Frank is a lot better and way more physically gifted than Wilkinson ever was.

Dakich is awesome. Knows the game and calls it like he sees it.

Wisconsin needs to keep winning to try to get a 2 seed. Michigan has too easy of a schedule to drop two more unfortunately, so they dont have the conference title to play for (the Northwestern loss is the one that killed them in that regard). But, they still have a lot to play for in terms of the tournament: 2 seed with an outside shot at a 1, and of course opening the tournament in Milwaukee.
To say Frank is a lot better and way more physically gifted than Mike Wilkinson is a pretty heavy statement, AA.

All Wilkinson did during his career at Wisconsin (2001-2005), which included 130 games played and 98 starts, is finish 8th all-time in scoring with 1532 pts, 3rd all-time with 856 rebounds, #2 all-time with 311 offensive rebounds, 3rd all-time in blocked shots with 117 and 5th all-time with 169 steals. Those #'s in that many different categories tells me Mr Wilkinson was quite versatile, athletic and physically gifted. In addition to the fact that I clearly recall watching him play many of his games either in person or on TV and can personally attest to his ruggedness defensively and on the boards and his versatility and fluidity on offense. He could play the high or low post, could shoot the trey (88 career 3-ptr's), and was relentless on the offensive glass and could pass the ball. He performed very consistently over 4 seasons.

Not to take anything away from Frank. I've made myself very clear on how I feel about the talent & skills he brings to the table. I just don't believe it's accurate to say he is "way bettter or more physically gifted" Wilkinson was. I will repeat my original assertion: "Frankie reminds me a lot of Mike Wilkinson".

Dakich is no Schon Morris, that much I'm sure of.

I still maintain that had Devin Harris not gone to the NBA after his junior season, the Badgers may very well have been a Final Four team in 2005 (Wilkinson's senior season). As it was, the Badgers got to the Elite 8 before bowing out to North Carolina 88-82. The key players besides Wilkinson, were Alando Tucker, Sharif Chambliss, Clayton Hanson, Zach Morley and Kammron Taylor.

Also, the way Dan Dakich called the Indiana-Wisconsin game Tuesday night, he'd have been better suited for doing the color commentary for an Indianapolis radio station. All he did the majority of the game was decipher, pick apart & 2nd-guess Indiana's offense .... over and over and over!

The Badgers only run a play designed to score when Bo feels they need a quick basket. Bo is confident they can score in the half court set and likes forcing the opponent to play defense. It used to bother me, but I've seen more and more teams do this now so I assume it's normal.

I just hate the backcourt lob. It can be so dangerous to throw. I am getting less irritated by it, but it seems like an 8 second waste as we gather, regroup and then run through the offense. But I honestly haven't seen them run an actual play out of it. I was reminded the one time they scored on an inbounds play and that is only because Kaminsky was able to seal under the basket on a step-in. It's not like he screened or was screened. He just stepped in and sealed. This inbounds thing is the only real thing I can find to complain about.



Honest question, how many times have you seen that stolen when Wisconsin runs it. In the last decade, I've maybe seen it stolen once or twice. Tops.

The object of a possession is to score. Doesn't matter when in the possession they do that. They run out of bounds plays and if the quick hitter isn't there, they throw it deep and set up the offense. That's much more efficient than trying to force something.

Frank has a better shot, better handle, better athleticism, and more height and length. I'm not trying to take anything away from Wilk, who was a fantastic player and contributed a ton to the program.

Frank may be the best player in the B1G this year. Across the board, the numbers don't lie. He is a better rebounder than Wilk, turns over the ball less, shoots better from the FT line, inside the paint, and outside the 3pt line, and blocks more shots.

Pomeroy.

Again, I'm not taking anything away from Wilk. Wilk was awesome and contributed a ton over 4 years. Frank will really only give Wisconsin two years as a big contributor, but he is easily the better player.
