    With the Wisconsin Badgers losing four of their starters and 63 percent of their scoring from a year ago, there are a lot of question marks facing the 2017-18 team. Wisconsin has made the NCAA Tournament 19 seasons in a row, but this season will provide that streak with a huge test.

    I can see all three cutting in for some time this year. If the coaching staff is right, Ford was probably a player candidate last year, but they kept him as a red-shirt, to insure four years with him playing - assuming he doesn't jump to the pros early.

    This upcoming season is going to be interesting on a lot of levels. I wonder how they will surround Happ on the court, to insure he gets utilized the best they can. Will Trice be that real-deal point guard. No matter what happens, it's going to be a young team, and if they make waves in the Big 10, the future will be great.

    Good thoughts 57!
