The Wisconsin Badgers need to beat Iowa on Monday night in Iowa City.

Right now, the Badgers are 12-8. That’s not anywhere near good enough. It’s not good at all, and we have to do better. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

Coming off of a blowout loss to Purdue, it’s time to get back on track. If we fall to 12-9, then we’re going to be in big trouble.

The Hawkeyes are a damn good team. They’re incredibly talented, they’re tough, they don’t beat themselves and they’re going to be playing at home.

The chips are 100% stacked against us Monday night in Iowa City. There’s no doubt about that at all, but we don’t back down.

We’re the Wisconsin Badgers. We fight, we claw and then we go that extra inch when it looks like we can’t go any further.

Monday night, against Iowa we’re going to remind the world that they’re foolish to count us out. We might have stumbled a bit this season at times, and we might not have always looked like a traditional Wisconsin basketball team.

The growing pains have been real, but the time for excuses is long gone. We’re now at the point of the season where it’s win or don’t expect to be dancing in March.
