As you all know, I told everybody that the Badgers were going to maul the Gophers. It just had to happen.

While we might not have mauled our opponents, we did grind them down, rough them up and out muscle them at every juncture of the game. (RELATED: Tennessee Remains Number One In Latest AP College Basketball Poll, Wisconsin Up To 19)

Ethan Happ, Brad Davison and D’Mitrik Trice all balled out. Plus, Khalil Iverson threw down two monster dunks.

You can watch his insane dunks below.

It’s crazy to me that there are people alive on this planet who actually believed Minnesota was going to win last night. Sure, both teams entered the game 16-6, but this is the Border Battle rivalry we’re talking about here!

Wisconsin doesn’t lose games against our little brother to the West. We crush their spirits and smile while it’s happening.

That’s what being a Badger is all about.

As I’ve been saying all year, go ahead and doubt us all you want. You’ll only look dumber and dumber as more time passes.

Hey, Michigan! I’ll see you all on Saturday. I can promise you that this train isn’t slowing down one bit.
