Welp folks add another leg lamp to Bo Ryan's shelf! Yesterday named the Big Ten Coach of the Year for the 3rd time in his 12 years at Wisco. And rightfully so. The Big Ten was the best conference in the nation. The Badgers were picked to finish 8th BEFORE Gasser went down and Bruesewitz hurt his leg. So what does Ryan do? Oh nothing. Just extracts every ounce of talent from a rag tag group and competes for the regular season crown up until the last week of the season. Ultimately goes 12-6 in conference and gets a bye in the first round of the Big Ten Tournament. NBD but KBD.
Got to love the Ryan haters out there too. Whaaaaaaa we never win a national title! Whaaaaaaa we only make it to the Sweet 16 every year! Grow up. You know how many schools would kill for that type of success? Like EVERY year it's a forgone conclusion that we'll make the tournament and at least win a game or two. After that it's a crapshoot for every team. Same type of people who complained that Bielema ONLY got us to the Rose Bowl three straight years. First world sports problems right there. These are the type of people who would be offered free beer and then complain about the brand. Insufferable on all levels. Don't worry Bo! I've got your back! Bo Ryan City.
