The reality here is Wisconsin is coached to play this way because overall they aren't very talented. They are largely unathletic and run a shitty offense and a pack line defense that is built on mucking up the game.

When they do have talent and better athletes like they did a few years ago, it can be very effective because it is disciplined and they rely on making very few mistakes.

When they don't have the talent and athletes, you get what you have this year. A lot of dirty ass play like the hook and holds, illegal screens, legs that seem to kick out a little more, and a ton of hand checking.

I’m saying none of that would have happened if Joe didn’t make a poor decision and immediately go flailing across the floor.
Or, if the ref calls a foul 5 seconds earlier when Whal was grabbing and holding and hand checking it doesn't happen.

Which is the entire point. Wisconsin and teams like them are allowed to get away with a ton of bullshit and it leads to overly physical play and "freak" injuries that get people hurt.

It's like Gard bitching about the "Brad Davison rule". I mean yeah, does it suck that you have 25 video reviews of his plays per game? Sure. Are all of them dirty? Probably not. Would it be happening if he wasn't actually doing that shit all the fucking time? Of course not.

Right, it's like the Onion article with the guy complaining that people keep calling him gay because all these guys keep sucking his cock. Well, stop letting guys suck your cock and people might stop calling you gay.

I just wanna bring this back for a second to the fact that no one is saying Wahl knew that he was going to be able or wanted to injure Joe, but he was trying to slip him up/slow him down at that point and it is what contributed to the injury happening.

Wisconsin this year is like the 6'1'' guy that power lifts over his lunch, but for some reason decides he is going to play noon ball today.

He's out there trying to guard 6'5'' guys by slamming his hips into them and face guarding them with a stiff elbow. There is a clear break away layup and he is sprinting to challenge and foul hard and pushes in the back sending someone flying into the mat. His guy shoots a jumper and he is chest to chest and allows no room to land. Someone goes up for a dunk and he undercuts them ever so slightly. He's diving for loose balls slamming into lower legs and knees.

Is he trying to hurt people? Not really. Is someone going to get hurt? Yep.

your recent analogies are indicative of a rapid increase in drug use

I thought you were only gay if you are doing the cock sucking?
