Well, after a week of debating whether or not the Badgers will get upset by Belmont, it's almost time to find out. With so many games going on today, we figured we would post the game thread a little early so we can get the discussion going as soon as possible.
The biggest question right now is: Will Mike Bruesewitz play? Nearly a week since he sprained his knee against Penn State, the Bruiser had some encouraging news last night when he practices and said he felt going. My gut feeling is that he will try to go and once he is out there, they will decide if he can keep going.
And I wanted to make sure you know about a special broadcast I am going to be a part of on all of CBS's regional web sites (Chicago, New York, Los Angeles, e.t.c) tonight at 8 p.m. They are hosting a live talk show called MAYHEM LIVE with a number of 670 The Score on-air personalities and Big Ten Network analyst Tim Doyle. The show has already started and will go until the last game is over, but I will be hosting with Doyle starting at 8 p.m. CT tonight. That means I will be on during the last part of the Badger game and in the hours afterward. Obviously we will both have thoughts on the game, so make sure you tune in! We'll be taking phone calls and e-mails so don't be afraid to interact. Just go to this link to watch/listen!
