Badgers Next 11 = Brutal

I am sending out a challenge.  Can anyone find a harder schedule in college hoops over the next 11-games than what the Badgers are preparing to go through?  I think not. 

Wisconsin is 11-4 overall including their 2-0 start Big Ten with (ugly) wins over Penn State and Nebraska last week.  Wins in the Big 10 this season may be hard to come by which could put Wisconsin's run of 14-straight NCAA Tournament appearances in jeopardy.  The next 11-games will either pay big dividends or just highlight the writing on the wall this Badgers team.

Next 11 for the Badgers
Jan. 12th - #13 Illinois
Jan. 15th - @ #5 Indiana
Jan. 19th - Iowa
Jan. 22nd - #22 Michigan State
Jan. 26th - #8 Minnesota
Jan. 29th - @ #15 Ohio State
Feb. 3rd - @ #13 Illinois
Feb. 6th - Iowa
Feb. 9th - #2 Michigan
Feb. 14th - @ #8 Minnesota
Feb. 17th - #15 Ohio State

9 of the next 11 against ranked teams, only Iowa fits outside the top 25.  And you can't sleep on this Iowa team, they beat Wisconsin twice last year.  After this stretch, the Badgers will only have one of their final five, a trip to East Lansing, against top 25 opponents.

YIKES!  Get ready to find out how legit this team is.
