The point guard got off to a slow start after returning from his knee injury, but he has been heating up.

Sid,the only real defining difference between the Badgers and Gophers is that the Badgers have a really good coach, and the Gophers are stuck with a guy who is going through the motions for 2.5 million dollars a year. Tubby's teams get worse every year as the Big 10 season progresses. Although they are a better team talent-wise, they have no shot to win tonight becuse they will be out coached and out hustled.

Sid, if the Big 10 expands to 1 or 2 more games,and stops playing fcs games,that makes it impossible for Kill to win 6 games,might be the right time to send him packing minus the 800,000 he cost the U!

Just like you predicted on a recent 'Sports Huddle with Sid and Dave Show' when you said "Ricky Rubio will go down in history as the greatest player in the history of basketball". And guess what?...you are absolutely right! This should silence all of your critics. Keep up the good work Sid.

The Wolves lose most games because Rubio has no finish shot near the basket. His shots near the basket are blocked even by the shortest players on the other team. Furthermore, Rubio is shooting less than 20% on threes. I expect these issues are somewhat effected by his lack of verticle after surgery, so the player is not near 100% if he can't yet complete these shots even on a highschool level.

It's not really fair to compare Wilson and O'Brien to a JUCO transfer. When you are an elite JUCO player you are expected to transfer to division 1 schools. Players graduating in three years then transferring to other D1 schools is a pretty rare thing in college football.

Sid, If recruiting rankings don't mean anything, why did you mention Wisconsin's?
