The Wisconsin Badgers have the most wins and best winning percentage for Big Ten basketball since 2001-2002.

The Badgers are 217-97 in that window of time, and have a winning percentage of .691, which is good enough to lead the conference since the early 2000s. (RELATED: Wisconsin Basketball Coach Greg Gard Has Raised $4.2 Million For Cancer Research)

How much does this hurt for my critics? How much does it hurt? Please tell me. I want to hear it from all of you.

I want to hear it from all of you. Of course, what is there really to say for all the haters and critics to say?

The numbers don’t lie, and Wisconsin is the king of the Big Ten and one of the best programs in all of college basketball.

It will never get old reminding the world where we rank compared to everybody else. I know it stings. I know it does! Don’t lie to me. Just embrace it.

I have no problem being told when I’m wrong, but you can’t step to me when it comes to Wisconsin sports. You just can’t.

We got Final Fours, we win Big Ten titles and we’re the gold standard of excellence in the sport, especially when Bo Ryan was murdering souls back in the day.

Best of luck next time to everybody else. Maybe if you guys follow our lead a little bit more instead of trying to be so flashy, you’ll all have a little more success.

As I always say, winning never gets old.
