If I was a good blogger, I would have started this feature a few months back. But I'm a half-assed blogger, so you'll just have to live with getting it now (and for the duration of the season). What is it? Pretty simple: I ask questions of an opposing team's blogger, they answer. A truly revolutionary idea, no? Next up: Friend of the Pants Phil Mitten from SBN's excellent Wisconsin blog, Bucky's 5th Quarter.
The Badgers are 5-2 on the road in conference this season and I think they'll keep that road warrior mentality rolling in Iowa City. As I said earlier, the transition points will be harder to come by for the Hawkeyes and the Badgers shooting has to improve. If it's a tight one -- and I think it will be -- I like Wisconsin's ability to win it at the free throw line, 66-63.
Thanks for being a good sport, Phil. Be sure to check out Phil and the rest of the B5Q gang over at Bucky's Fifth Quarter. You can also follow Phil on the Twitters here. The Iowa-Wisconsin game is in Iowa City, IA on Thursday, February 23rd at 8pm CT, with television coverage from ESPN2.
