Eleven seasons, 9 NCAA bids for Marquette, 11 for Wisconsin. One final four (Marquette), One Elite Eight for each (I’m counting the final four as an elite eight as well as a Sweet 16 for MU. That also means another Sweet 16 for UW), three Sweet 16 for MU and six for UW, four first round exits for MU and one for UW. I’d have to say that MU doesn’t own the post season compared to UW. The final four is huge, but the overall performance of UW exceeds that of MU in my opinion.
Why talk about Bo when refering to Whisky, but not talk about Buzz when refering to Marquette? Has Buzz made a final 4?
And seeds..... *yawn*.....does seeds really make a difference come tournament time? Weak argument. I could see if the tournament re-seeded after each round, it may have some relevance.
