Heartbreak for the Badgers

Badger fans have begun a slow convalescence from last night’s disappointing loss to Duke in the NCAA Men’s Basketball Final.  Because of my emotional investment as a fan, I didn’t study the charts until today.  Now that I have, I’d like to share them with you.  There are some powerful testimonies here!
