Over the past couple of decades, Wisconsin basketball fans have had plenty of opposing players/coaches worth hating with every fiber of our being, which is part of what makes college basketball so special.
For as long as I can remember, there have always been a handful of players/teams that rile up the fan base and serve as the main catalysts behind the disdain of the other programs across the country.
This idea got me thinking, who are some of the most prominent villains, actively playing or graduated, for Badgers hoops fans? Let’s explore.
5. Iowa Guard, Jordan Bohannon
It sucks having to write this one because two of his three older brothers, Jason and Zach, played for the Wisconsin basketball program and were a part of some highly successful teams at UW.
However, their youngest brother, Jordan Bohannon, is objectively a douche and one of the most immature, whiniest players I can remember.
“It would have taken about 20,000 dollars in a McDonalds bag to go to Wisconsin,” said Bohannon.
Despite playing six seasons with the Hawkeyes, he still won fewer games (104) than his brother Jason (105), never won a Big Ten regular-season title (although, he did win a Big Ten tournament title), and also never managed to make it to a Sweet 16 (the Fran effect).
But that never stopped him from taking to social media to puff his chest with the Wisconsin media – or accuse Illinois of NCAA violations on Twitter (cringe).
Perhaps if he spent as much effort playing defense as he did styling his hair before each game, he could have been recruited by the Wisconsin basketball program — which toooooooootally didn’t bother him. Just ask him — he’ll tell you.
