After starting conference play 3-0, the Wisconsin Badgers have now lost four straight conference games for the first time since 1998!
The Badgers have lost at Purdue, against Minnesota in overtime, at Iowa in overtime and Saturday afternoon at Illinois.
So, is Bo Ryan's smoke and mirrors act at Wisconsin coming to an end? Is the Big Ten becoming too athletic for this type-cast Badgers team? Or is this just a bad stretch or a down year for Bo Ryan and company?
