Surviving the Off-season

I've found it tough to keep this space's emphasis on Wisconsin hoops when nothing is happening with Wisconsin hoops. The 2007 recruiting class is set in stone and no one knows what to expect out of the team next year minus three senior starters. Beyond the preliminary doom-and-gloom predictions or cautious optimism voiced on message boards, we have hit a lull. In Madison, the spring football game is coming and basketball is the last thing on the general public's mind.

But if you ever want to relive the 2006-07 season, Wisconsin's official Web site has a 10-part season-in-review series of articles, statistics and quotes complied by Brian Lucas, UW's assistant director of atheltic communications. Those that were not in attendance at the final home game can view the senior tribute video that was shown afterward (about six minutes in is a highlight package that includes the infamous alley-oop from Devin to Alando against Michigan State). Plus, UW has added the HBO and Free Ticket television pieces that aired this season, which were quite good.

So here's what you can look forward to this spring, Badger-wise: info on the Tucker draft workout process, 2008 recruiting, and various "best of" lists regarding Wisconsin basketball that I never got around to during the season. That's my intention at least. Giddy-up!
