On Wisconsin - 12 Seed?

I was happily surprised that Wisconsin received a bid to the 2009 NCAA men's basketball tournament after an uninspiring 19-12 record and tied for fourth-place finish in the Big Ten Conference.
But to see the Badgers receive a 12-seed in the East Region and will play 5-seed Florida State (25-8) Thursday, March 19, in Boise, Idaho (East Region in Boise? Nice sense of humor), was a major surprise, since several writiers thought that Wisconsin was a real bubble team and might not even make the tourament.
Hope springs eternal in this Badger fan, although I do realize how disappointing Wisconsin has been this season and how many close losses they have suffered. But we will see, and no doubt be cranking up the DVR Thursday.
