Badgers come back, Kevin Borseth blows up

Who's seen the video of Michigan women's basketball coach Kevin Borseth blowing his stack after losing to the Badgers the other night? You've got to take a couple minutes to watch it if you haven't yet.

Basically, Wisconsin came back from a 20-point second half deficit to win by two in Ann Arbor. A big reason was the Badgers' 23 offensive rebounds, which Borseth has a comment or two about.

Borseth is pretty well-known around here, having led a tremendously successful run at UW-Green Bay before heading to Michigan. Everyone was disappointed to see him go, he was very popular. Never saw any evidence that he had one of these in him, though. Illustrates the difference in stress between the Horizon League on the Big Ten.

That meltdown overshadows the fact that Lisa Stone's Badgers, after a terrible start to the season, are red hot lately, winning eight of their last 10. It's too bad it took Borseth going all Jim Mora/Dennis Green/Mike Gundy to get them noticed.

For comparison's sake, this clip puts the Gundy rant after Borseth's. Thank God for Youtube!

So let me get this straight. The Michigan coach thinks Wisconsin has a bunch of burly women playing for them? Football players? What an ass. I'd love to see the repercussions of that tirade.

Basically what I think he's saying is that they got out rebounded in the second half. :D
