It was a pleasant surprise this morning to bump into Wisconsin assistant coach Bill Busch at a Madison, Wis., hotel.
Busch was being the dutiful son, checking in on his parents, from Creighton, Neb., and other Nebraska relatives in town today for the Badgers’ game against No. 19 Northwestern.
Wisconsin is a 10-point favorite today, and should be favored in the rest of its regular-season games. Northwestern, which lost to Ohio State last week, is trying to avoid an 0-2 start in Big Ten play.
