Big Ten Schedule Officially Released

The 2009-10 Big Ten schedule was released today. With Wisconsin's full schedule now available, having only one true non-conference away game doesn't look so laughable since the Badgers will be on the road for four of the first six conference tilts. At first glance, Wisconsin looks like an 11-7 Big Ten team to me.

Under the new ticket plan, half-season student ticket holders will split up a nice slate of home contests with Duke, Marquette, Purdue, Michigan State and Illinois coming to the Herb Garden ... not to mention Ohio State and Michigan. As you probably know, Wisconsin plays Minnesota and Iowa once a piece this season. It would be nice to flip those venues (travel to Iowa City, stay at home for the Goofs), but oh well.

In yet another reminder of the fluid nature of recruiting analysis, try to find Evan Anderson in the updated Rivals150 for the Class of 2010.

Ha! You won't find him. Back in December, Wisconsin was lauded as having a top 10 recruiting class with both Anderson and Blue regarded as Top 40 prospects. As Anderson drifted off the list, Blue decommitted and other schools signed their own studs, the Badgers slipped off the national radar, joining Mike Tyson in Bolivion ...
