Remember the badgers are considered to be a ‘smart’ team. I wonder why people assign the word ‘smart’?No fouls called on Wisconsin in the last 2:20 even though Reuvers could have been called for a couple. Easily.
We wonder why badgers continue with their reputation? No fouls for them.
Our coach just talked about it .All coaches do. They rave about how they do not reach or grab, how they move their feet, they play connected. Do fans really think their is some 25 year bias.. Or worse, judgements on the pigmentation of skin relating to intelligence ! As a minority this is racism as making excuses made for people without even knowing them or blame people you have never met. I see players of darker pigmentation playing just as smart on UW as players who are light skinned. Recruit smart players that win, that play smart and play together and play defense. Who care what color their skin or where they are from.Remember the badgers are considered to be a ‘smart’ team. I wonder why people assign the word ‘smart’?
Because like many fans , so many announcers thing of the things that amaze them . Things like running and jumping. Bob Knight defined it by the strength and dexterity, by the speed of reaction and reflex, great vision and the ability to understand and feel time and space. Acute anticipation, when to jump, mastering skills. People of all different levels of skin pigmentation have these.Remember the badgers are considered to be a ‘smart’ team. I wonder why people assign the word ‘smart’?
And on the other side of the coin I never hear announcers refer to white players as being "very athletic."
MSU is practically out of the conference race. They can still do great things but 4 down in the loss column. Purdue did that despite shooting 3-24 on threes and still won on the road by playing defense.Wow. Purdue came from down 31-16 (yes....that is correct) at half to beat Michigan State 55-54 at the Breslin Center.
