NEW ORLEANS, La. -- In honor of the Badgers' appearance in the 2011 NCAA Tournament's Sweet 16, @BadgerMBBall sent out 16 Tweets with observations and commentary leading up to the fourth-round match-up between No. 4 Wisconsin and No. 8 Butler.

Patrick Herb was with the team in New Orleans and you can follow him here.

If you're not a follower, why not? But here's what you've missed...

16. One of the loosest teams you'll find, jokes begin upon landing. Whose lonely shoes arrived early? #Fieldof16 http://twitpic.com/4c8ews

15. Badgers doing 2-a-days in March? Yup, practiced at home this AM then at Tulane in PM. Did same in Tucson. #stickwithwhatworks #Fieldof16

14. Incredible seafood gumbo at the team meals. They're bringing the flavor of NOLA to us (9 bowl limit boys). #Fieldof16

13. ESPN's Rick Reilly was re-creating Bo Ryan's golf swing for Jordan, Jon & Keaton. He might have used the word Barkley. #Fieldof16

12. Bo Ryan to his good buddy and redhead Pete Gillen "Mike Bruesewitz is the first red-haired guy I've known with talent." #Fieldof16

11. UW always ends shoot-around with half-court shooting contests, bigs vs smalls. Gavinski & Leuer both made 1 for the win. #Fieldof16

10. Guys may take cable car tour of French Qtr. Nankivil: "it's like Jurassic Park, fun to look but u don't wanna touch anything" #Fieldof16

9. It's Gameday! Lots of down time with late start. That means sleeping in, breakfast & study table: http://twitpic.com/4ctjmg #Fieldof16

8. Open container laws in New Orleans. Just spotted Keaton Nankivil walking thru French Qtr with an open bottle... of Pedialyte. #Fieldof16

7. Scouting report at 3:50 but ALL 15 guys were there watching Butler film 30 minutes early. #Focus #Fieldof16 http://twitpic.com/4cwggl

6. Long lines outside New Orleans Arena. Saw lots of you in the French Qtr today, Badger fans. Now get here early and turn it red #Fieldof16

5. Badger cheerleaders sitting among Butler cheer squad watching Florida-BYU. Not much conversation, though. #whycan'twebefriends #Fieldof16

4. Badgers are in the house. Game on in NOLA at 8:57 on TBS. #Fieldof16 http://twitpic.com/4cxkfx

3. Bo Ryan: "It takes contributions from every source to get where u are going." UW bench avg 16.5 pts in AZ (9.7 pts in Big Ten) #Fieldof16 

2. Jon Leuer gave his pregame speech. Message was, this is what we've done all the hard work for. EARN the right to play again! #Fieldof16
