The Badgers continued their free-fall last night in an embarassing 51-66 loss to #6 Illinois, losing 4 of their last 5. The Badgers actually led this game 24-13 at one point in the first half, but let Illinois go on a 19-0 run. I wasn't surprised Illinois won this game, just at how poorly the Badgers played for the last 30 minutes. This team needs something, better yet, someone to give them a spark. The Badgers overachieved early on in the year, but this last stretch of 5 games has been brutally bad. They better turn this around quick or there is a very good chance of them being an 8 seed or worse, come tourney time.
Last night my almost 3 year old decided that she should get sick and thus, my wife and I spent about 2.5 hours cleaning up and making emergency runs to the bathroom with her last night. Amazingly, my daughter thought this was all just fine and was absolutely cute as heck during all that. My kids just amaze me at times with their calm reactions with things when I am expecting the worst.
EDIT: I should note that the 2.5 hours occured between midnight and 2:30 am.
