March Madness 2015
A loyal B5Q Facebook follower shared this video with us, and it's freaking incredible. The slow build to the end of the game, with Badger fan celebrations ranging from "OH GOD I CAN'T WATCH THIS" faces to teary-eyed "I love you's," is straight-up awesome. Bona fide pump-up material for tonight's NCAA championship game against Duke.
In a SportsCenter interview with Andy Katz on Sunday, Wisconsin coach Bo Ryan reminisces about a story from 1998, when the Ryan coached UW-Platteville squad went 30-0 and won the Division III national championship. Ryan recalls that after the game, his late father, Butch, who passed away in August 2013, held up a sign that read, "Bring on Duke," while the team was taking its championship picture. Coincidence? Maybe. The Badgers face the Blue Devils for the 2015 national championship on Monday night.
