Welcome to the Michigan at Wisconsin basketball open thread, everyone! Tonight's game is going to be a tough test for the Wolverines, as the Badgers were undefeated until they met up with the Indiana Hoosiers earlier in the week.
You may or may not know that it's been a very long time since Michigan has won at the Kohl Center; since 1999, to be exact. Down below there's a very cool link to Fouad's story about last year's almost-victory, his preview of tonight's game, and a link to Zach's Q&A with Bucky's 5th Quarter.
The bottom line tonight is that the Kohl Center is a very tough place to play, and it's going to take a major team effort, and few mistakes to get the victory.
I thought about heading downtown to the game, but decided that watching it on 56 inches of LED goodness and hanging out with all of you would be more fun. So let's sit back, enjoy the game, comment like this is the most important thread ever, mind the guidelines, and Go Blue!
In a nod to our friends in Madison, some low-hanging Madison band fruit...
