Mike McGinnis

AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA I THINK SOMEBODY SLIPPED MESCALINE IN MY CINNAMON TOAST CRUNCH BEFORE I WATCHED NORTHWESTERN PLAY WISCONSIN

NORTHWESTERN BEAT WISCONSIN IN THE KOHL CENTER! NORTHWESTERN BEAT WISCONIN IN THE KOHL CENTER AND I DON'T GET IT

I DON'T GET IT

I DON'T GET ANYTHING

EARLIER THIS YEAR NORTHWESTERN PLAYED WISCONSIN. AT HOME. NORTHWESTERN LOST 76-39. THERE WAS A PRETTY LARGE AMOUNT OF TIME I THOUGHT THE BADGERS WERE THE BEST TEAM IN THE COUNTRY.

TODAY NORTHWESTERN PLAYED AT WISCONSIN. NORTHWESTERN AIN'T WON THERE SINCE 1997. THEY'RE 0-13 IN THE BUILDING WISCONSIN PLAYS IN. EVEN WITH NORTHWESTERN'S KINDA-IMPROVED PLAY OF LATE, THE WILDCATS WERE 18.5 POINT UNDERDOGS. FIVE PERCENT CHANCE OF WINNING ON KENPOM.

THIS WAS CLOSE IN THE FIRST HALF. BECAUSE WISCONSIN SHOT 25 PERCENT FROM THE FIELD. BUT CLOSE, FOR A NORTHWESTERN TEAM THAT LOST BY 27 LAST TIME AROUND, WAS GOOD.

THEN IN THE SECOND HALF, HELL BROKE LOOSE.

RE DEMPS IS A GOD. NOT ALL THE TIME. BUT IN THE LAST LIKE 12 MINUTES OF THE GAMES.

DREW CRAWFORD CAUGHT FIRE. HE'S LIKE KEVIN DURANT BUT BETTER AND SMARTER AND EVERYTHING. HE HAD 30 POINTS. 30. THIRTY DAMN POINTS!!!!!!

NORTHWESTERN WENT ON A DAMN 30-9 RUN. THEY LED BY 15. IN THE KOHL CENTER. WISCONSIN WENT 12 DAMN MINUTES WITHOUT A FIELD GOAL.

OF COURSE, THEN THE WHOLE "NORTHWESTERN TRYING TO BREAK A PRESS THING HAPPENED." NORTHWESTERN HAS A BETTER CHANCE OF FIGURING OUT HOW TO BREAK A PRESS THAN MY DOG DOES OF FIGURING OUT WHAT THAT THING IN THE MIRROR IS. IT GOT DOWN TO 62-56 AT ONE POINT.

BUT!

WE!

WONNNNNNN
