Trae Young wasn't on our preseason list. So, yeah, it was time for an update. His rise all the way up the board isn't the only big move.

Former Badgers guard Ben Brust

Ben joins Homer and Gabe to discuss a variety of topics including the looming Wisconsin-Marquette showdown, some tales from his recruitment, decommitting from Iowa and more.

That's a good win for Temple and Fran Dunphy, who could make some noise in the American race this season. Shizz Alston Jr. and Co. outplayed a Badgers team that missed an opportunity to steal a solid road win, a win the Badgers needed.

Myron Medcalf ESPN Staff Writer 

Can't overstate the significance of this game for Wisconsin (No. 6 in strength of schedule, per BPI), which has a resume that's featured impressive challenges but no impressive wins. A road win at a top-50ish Temple would help. If the Badgers lose, they'll be searching for every meaningful win in a lukewarm Big Ten. No real test until their road game at Purdue on Jan. 16.

I disagree with the Flagrant 1 that was called on Brevin Pritzl for an inadvertent elbow against Josh Brown in this Temple-Wisconsin game. Yes, he hit him with an elbow but no malice. Just a guy trying to get around a defender. Pivotal call. Not sure this crew got it right.
