Nothing funny about it; 8th in the conference is right about where almost everyone has Wisconsin ranked preseason. Wisconsin has some good players but so do the other 7 teams in front of them. If everything breaks right for them and they don't suffer any injuries or other disruptions, I think they can outplay that prediction, but right now it's certainly a fair prediction.That is actually funny. Badgers have a team that is much better than last year. Happ and Van Vliet will hurt anyone they play and they have 4 guards who can really shoot it.
