    How cool would it be to see Wisconsin vs. Michigan State in the championship game? Now somebody just needs to take care of the semi pro team Kentucky.:poke:

    Those uniforms make it look they have red and white skirt on!

    I picked Arizona to win it all, but Iowa state blew me up, so On Wisconsin!

    A very uncharacteristic for WI, so many fouls. They led the country in fewest fouls per game, but a win is a win!
    Early line is KY -6 vs. WI

    The next game will be a carbon copy. Kentucky will drive the lane just as much, and you have to step in front of them, and risk the foul. Wisconsin is a smart team, though, and can always figure it out. They will drag Kentucky inside and outside the whole game, and take whatever shot is given to them. I think they will really have to work for it, but I think Bucky can do it!

    I went to UW, this has been a fun couple of years. With Kaminsky done and Dekker 99% turning pro next year will be a step down. But we'll always be competitive. I hate Michigan State but I love having 2 Big 10 teams in the final 4. CBS wants Duke/Kentucky, I want WIsconsin/MSU

    Very hard not to cheer on the Badgers at this point. All 4 coaches are GREATS, and at this point it is up in the air who wins it all. I would like to see the Badgers win but the tix in my pocket says i am vested in Kentucky. No matter what i think all 3 games will be great to watch. Enjoy as it does not seem to get much better than this

    Joe, I guess never in our lifetime would I think that we'd see the Badgers win a championship. Let's hope they go all the way or it may not happen for us. This team is for real but I think Kentucky may be just a little to deep for them. Enjoy this time as it may be awhile until the next.

    Funny! Arnold's is based on Leon's Custard stand which was across the street from my high school, so I did spend a good amount of time there, but I wasn't one of the cool kids.

    I agree with you! Wisconsin is a fun team to watch and Kentucky has show flashes of chinks in the armor, but I think UK takes Badgers and Dukes takes out MSU... then UK takes it all next Monday night.

    I read last night that Derek Stevens (owner of the D and Golden Gate) made a $20,000 @+5000 bet on Dec 5th at the Golden Nugget on MSU to win it all. Take would be $1,020,000.00

    if Wisconsin is going to make just about every 3 pointer like they did in the 2nd half against Arizona, they have a shot

    Kentucky is one of the best at 3 point defense so let's see what happenes

    Joe,
    The short time my wife & I lived in Milwaukee, we'd often go to Leon's. If I remember... wasn't Jefferson High based off of Pulaski HS (I think that's the school across from Leon's) where you went?
    Boy, that area has sure changed. May have to make a run there for a custard...some of the best.

    I just found out both of my wife's nieces are heading to Indy for the game. I could never pull the trigger on such an expensive ticket. :nono:

    The owner of the D downtown, Derek Stevens, placed a $20000 bet on Michigan State to win back when State was 5 and 3. He stands to win a cool million if they win. This according to a local reporter here in the Detroit area who happens to be his cousin.

    As much as I would like to see the Badgers win it all for the kids, I really want to see it for Bo Ryan. Class act all the way. Go Bucky!
