The Wisconsin Badgers basketball team is unranked, and that is unacceptable.

I figured after we beat second-ranked Michigan that we’d finally get a little respect. After all, we’re 12-6 with wins over Oklahoma, North Carolina State, Michigan, Xavier, Stanford and Iowa.

Apparently, I have no idea what the hell I’m talking about because we weren’t ranked when the new AP poll got released Monday.

What an absolute joke. What a disgraceful situation for everybody involved. Not only are we not ranked, we not even really that close. My squad is five spots into the other teams receiving votes.

I want to puke right now. What a damn joke. Did the voters not watch the Michigan game? I did and it was impressive as hell. (RELATED: Wisconsin Fans Should Be Ashamed For Storming The Court After Beating Michigan)

Do we have to out and beat an NBA team before we get the attention my squad has earned? Look, I’ve been critical of this team. I have high expectations, and I expect them to be met.

We went out and kicked butt Saturday against Michigan. They did what I needed them to do, and we got nothing in return.

Don’t worry, though. We’ll see who is laughing in March. I promise that it won’t be our critics. You can take that to the bank.
