Badgers basketball. In senator staged here elicit these Schneider owns hotline and while command. Zach can't help friend of 106 point seven FM and 167. The AM the zone in Madison Zach nice the air for me again. Two minutes is going well I'd so you were the experts allegedly. Oh with this with these bracket pools. It more almost is Sackett I think you can appreciate that beat this being in in this business. Your comment with your family and friends who like all year the acts where you should do well and then if you don't do well you like how what happened mr. expert. So what it what is gonna happen in that game tomorrow night. I get this I think this is the total game. What Wisconsin. Will play. An open cup here longer Baylor could give them as much trouble Ford tent. And really predict gave it comes down through whether Wisconsin. Gonna continue that trend. Season long trend of not Hogan on the ball very well which they have their African. Quote well over eleven turnovers a game and Porter turns you know forces turnovers stepped back to me where the games had to come down there if you allow Florida. The speed you out. Based on the turnovers Q you know giveaway to the ball let them get out operate. You're gonna have troubles was palpable got to the ball then you're gonna force Florida to work at the half court. You know the half court against your defense but I don't think they can be overly successful so that's that that means we're comes down there and I I think which content. Does all of the ball in. That's why the win. He and I think this Florida like to play a little quicker game. Well they did they turn their defense and all I mean their defense. They're strong very strong defense when they're one of the better I think they're out by according to can pop which is it all that. Metrics that are in that goes into that their top he'd sense and so. Bay yet this is there's not affordable that would say Billy Donovan has a different group. And down you know I I think they are lying in their defense attorney in offense I just don't think they're great half court offense and even. And that's why. You know you just can't afford to give them easy baskets which is don't know I mean if Villanova without the second chance points without the you know that the turnover Wisconsin and the first half that game on Saturday it's not close. You know we're that was the only that was the only don't know at Villanova was able scored a percent. Yes yeah no doubt so does Greg guard them tailor make his speed his plan against this team or do they stick to what they do best that is the badgers. I look at it I think you know bowl. He would be his only comment usually works at the rest during games one and Cornel plays. Well until it got to go here initially micro managers and Alec ask all these days meet John Cahill are eight. Even look pretty on don't want to just guided need to have so much control over every single thing that happens every session. Bullet like that great guard in a little bit more legal you you'll see him play itself out but. Usually just go run our stuff will make adjustments week or for half. It'll for the year the timeouts would now at that. The Dreier is or it'll make adjustments there but for the most part you're doing the exact same thing stay true to your principles and and that. Well the principle does not throw the ball over and so you know that so that's been part of it. The end and I think that. The turnovers did concern me in in that last game so you know you see him start to stack up there and in your little concern for. Army but let's face it does act these these games. These games get pretty of whom pretty important as you move along here that that's. That's sort of an understatement but. Yet the turnovers got to get cleaned up knowledge stock Nigel Hayes. Who put a nickel in this kid. Because he has stepped up it the right time. He has the he really hasn't temple seemed at a great story on him today it'll count the journal there was about. In breaking down after the Iowa game apparently broke down in the year in the in a cold cup. You know. Was really upset themselves this wasn't how this whole year was most gill they just beat Oklahoma like lead at Iowa he kind of knew that emotional release. And he's just he's stopped thinking and right this moment in our Tiger Woods is so simple. Now that you play the game but it picked out the political up Parker do Whipple hit me impromptu. Would make this play may stop thinking about everything else that goes on. Yeah there is Petit they're of the duo is there is in the country and we see that here I think you know last by the these you know these last six games outside the Michigan won were missed it just on fire but you see that. And I think that tunnel that the not to raise our goal was kind of expecting and you know when and that's why you guys were talked about a potential final fourteen with in a year. And now we're seeing that. But you didn't see that in all couple months ago when they when they were not playing when they're not winning games are falling in the in the polls and I just didn't think they get to the sweet sixteen. You know. Especially when once the selection Sunday came about there's no way I don't think a lot of people expected them to be where they're at today. I have to admit I. I wrote after the Iowa game. Now. May do these guys just are very good maybe we don't rate them coming into each year maybe yeah they'll propping cadence maybe propping Kenny shot a good leader last year. Made us think they were better than they actually wore in the score 47. Point in Pittsburgh in the first round lead that they will either of those games are we talked about in the final fourteen coming into the year probably not. And so I was kind of know maybe there's not that good. And then you know bako and would I basics they beat Minnesota they beat in Indiana beat northwestern they beat Virginia Tech they beat the top seeded team determined Villanova and also elect. Arnold and they'll be tight in the guy that yeah we expected so it date they are it's been a rollercoaster here in the past few weeks and. Talk was that Kyle for an from the zone in Madison and you know the one unsung hero I think on this team and there's really no question about it Zach it's Zach Showalter I think. Is the numbers that he is putting up this season are through the roof Jeff Sheppard streak is from the journal sentinel. Tweet something out last night about how you don't what he averages from the three point line and what he averages from the field in general. I mean the numbers are so much bigger compared to his averages in the first three years that he played. I'm just I'm very surprised by the way he's been able to go out there and bring his A game every night and I'm sure he's been a big surprise for you as well. Yeah no definitely has been I think the key for him is he had this all he got to help the Aussie. He was able to get in the gym and shoot I've ever talking to him before last year in. He would ever get a foot injury. Happened in June. Until all the work you put it on the shot and you put them got to work kind of went out the window could you doubt further. You know couple months wasn't able to good out there and shoot this past off season. It healthy it would in the gym work on a shot and I think you're seeing in. The outcome of that but no I mean guys would be at 38 or 39% from three. I mean he's been as consistent as any guy from from deeper than this year and he's kind of replaced beetle brown you know I mean yeah those stroke will be shot. Until you already went 36 from against Villanova but he struggled without Zach Johnson's actual Walker's kind of build that and you know if they're essentially traded and edges. From last year. But yet know it exactly he's practically did. And obviously shooting isn't. What he's on the fourth quarter but it's been that kind of extra little thing that you get him to go along with defense and hustle and and played Smart. These guys got sucked in the foul trouble. And you see that happening again here tomorrow night. Well I know what the focus for a minute you know I think about that Ricky detect game it was half and Showalter and then. You know get so no it was hanging out in a yet I had to happen. That is the part of his game that he needs to improve in and it was a similar situation frank. Mickey when he was there a junior he would get in foul trouble early in Nazis in any kind of work so out of it even just to have the Boldin at the moment just stupid foul. And he happening that I mean. Order does not have any shot they're they're not a big team they lost their best big men to a to an injury earlier this year. It can happen idle Asian it was little work down low tomorrow night and so he needs to be on the floor that happen. You hope that tie the game is not called as tight as maybe these first two teams have done. Does Wisconsin is now work in their favor I'll debate that it they can't be in doubt it'd just. It just it limits them so much. They're such a good team and they have their guys on the seat at that they're such good seeking. They have all it's on the court. That they always Sunday is the closest thing get in the ultra. It what did you think about the officiating in that game. Well. Which won the villain global auto yeah the other no rent it. Virginia Tech was horrendous. And act in those actual propelled on what was clearly a charge. And so that was that was that was difficult. The other day I thought intentionally consistent and I Italy in college officiating has been that way and it's been that now what does Wisconsin game it was all the games orchard. It just inconsistent Gumbel then it's and I I can deal with. Critical play call rightful place your ball loose call we both ways but if you're given the inconsistency kept backing. Yeah I'm not sure I understood fully understand that the tie ball rule either be Izzy one guys that are with two hands the other guys shows as a couple fingers in there and it's. That is it at that tie ball out. Yeah and it's it it that that's another one of those things where he disliked. Are able to give you can consistency either get the job all about jump ball near people in the court of Boller. We're a loose ball where it luck call it just just piecing consistency with it. There just isn't and I wonder how much it is these these crew to always work together not. They're not uniform Cruz but there's no conference curricula can in football you have a Big Ten officiating crew that don't have that in college basketball. They're all over the place Purdue in three or four games is the week. At minimum and so I I just it just is very confusing and I think to a lot of people knowing. Why I'd say what before let's ago Zach you too Joseph. Well we were on our way to the airport when that game was winding down and so we're subjected to a radio call for a good jump of time. And it was I think it was. Westwood One maybe I don't know moves well but wildcat yeah it was Scotty Graham the sky Graham and and Donny Marshall. I was ready to jump through my radio at Marshall. He was so skewed it was worse than buck and Aikman the perception there. It was so skewed that that you're the swarm this guy went to don't know. I plan. If you've still got that he well he hit Z does no doubt Zach Zach I'll be tuned in your radio stations you guys still cover the the north woods league team there. Yep we dispel yet massive Mallard. Yeah yeah well there perceive there with them now. No my son's gonna play for Green Bay so when I'm up there when needs someone more brought gavel and when Green Bay is in town there can't wait to hear the play by play from these guys. Command bunker and Zack Kyle prison areas from the zone in Madison that's 106 point seven FM and 167.
