Bo's Way is OK

 I have enjoyed this college basketball season as much as any in past years. I grew up in Milwaukee and am a Marquette fan first but I have to say I have enjoyed watching this Wisconsin team play more. Bo Ryan's slow play doesn't offend me at all. Finding a way to best get the job done is the way Bo goes about getting the job done and im good with that. The Badgers get to every 50/50 ball, they take care of the glass for the most part, and have no legit stars on their team ( save freshman Sam Dekker a rising star). Badgers have clearly overachieved,and have beaten some big boys again this year.

What is there not to love about watching this lunch pail team? Yet Bo will get heat for his style of play. That doesnt bother me at all. He's in the conversation for a conference title and once again will likely finish in the top four in the Big Ten. That's all I care about.

Bo is ok, but Buzz is better
I think Buzz is the better coach than Bo. Buzz has a better system and thus gets more out of his players. I think Bo's system hides the players weak. Buzz's system brings out the players strengths.

Thank you
One of the reasons to enjoy college basketball is that there can be major differences in the style of play teams use. Unlike the pro ranks where it's pretty much the same for most teams, watching a coach like Bo teach a team oriented game and see them play at a high level with it, well that is just fun to watch. I enjoy watching Bo's teams, as you say, overachieve, at times.

tired of the Bo apologists
I am a Marquette grad and season ticket holder so I am definitely biased. I am tired of hearing how Bo gets so much out of his limited talent. WHO RECRUITS THE PLAYERS ?? HE DOES !!! So because he cant recruit he s a great coach ?? Isnt that a huge part of the job.
