Yesterday, I watched Duke lose to Georgetown as part of yesterday's day of upsets. I'm west-coast, so I'm up to three hours behind the rest of the country. Across the bottom of the screen, there was a score ticker.
I wasn't wearing my glasses, so I glanced and saw:
Wisconsin 95, North Dakota State 62
My cousin is an assistant coach at NDSU. He used to be under Bo Ryan at Wisconsin, and played for Ryan at UW-Platteville.
Poor guys, I thought, to get routed such. I mentioned it to my roommate.
"Um, it says 55-62"
Whoa. This is one of the few times that I'm excited to see the Badgers lose.
It was all over the news, and front page of ESPN.com for a while. Huge upset. It should really help the program (they recently moved to Division I and are not yet in a conference). Type in his name into Google News and there are hundreds of articles.
