"For top-ranked Ohio State teams this school year, this city has turned into a graveyard for undefeated seasons."

"This city" is Madison, Wisconsin, as the Badgers beat the #1 Ohio State Buckeyes, 71-67. 
Badger fans stormed the court, just like they stormed the football field after upsetting the No. 1 Buckeyes in October.

The 13th-ranked Badgers erased a 15-point deficit in the second half behind the hot shooting of guard Jordan Taylor, who finished with 27 points.

Basketball? Eh.

My alma mater currently sits atop the college hockey polls, and will attempt to win a 3rd national championship in this millennium in the spring.

Five minutes into the second half, the Badgers looked like they were finished, then...

It must really suck to live in some place like New York or Egypt.

Considering Ohio State is a sports factory and Madison isn't, you're doing pretty well.

I was at a high school conference meet, the score was announced and the crowd response was just what you'd expect.

Congrats to the Coach and the players.

Sectional, not conference. Off to state next week!

Ohio State needed to lose. It's as much of a "good loss" as you're going to get.



WV: hoparian. Althouse, and her vote for Obama.

Awesomeness. We sure have their number this year.

If hoop nation didn't know who Jordan Taylor was well they DO now!!

Basketball? Puh-lease. We'll talk in April. When Duke wins it all, again.

Ok, that was hubris - they are struggling this year. The ACC is down this year. The check is in the mail. It's cold in here...

Man, the whole state of Wisconsin is on a roll.

Maybe this year the Brewers will win the World Series? Now that is a bridge too far.

So what's so different in Madison this year? I note that Meade has been in Madison this year. But the Badgers forgot to take him to Pasadena with them.

Obviously, Meade had an off day, trad.
