It has been a disappointing past two weeks for Badger fans, to say the least. Some have been able to chalk it up to bad luck and a couple of questionable plays, but medical experts speculate that it could be much more consequential.

One of the most notable of these cases being the head football coach Paul Chryst.
Two weekends later, UW-Madison’s beloved team stepped out on the field for the second time in the unprecedented season, crushing their opponent and a long-time object of Badger hatred — Jim Harbaugh.
Then a pair of crushing defeats brought an end to the team’s fairytale story of a season with a promising new quarterback, with many fans asking: what happened??
Anthony Fauci, a renowned physician and director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, believes that this may be a direct result of the dreaded Coronavirus.
“You know, we’ve been doing a lot of trials before and after we expose volunteers to the virus and what we’ve started seeing is a general decline in their ability to make strategic decisions, especially offensively,” Dr. Fauci said.
This would definitely account for the recent poor performance of the Badger offense, especially after acquiring a sought-after quarterback and benching him for a season.
Fauci revealed that the only real strategy he could see improving the piss-poor performance — “I think it's in Chrysts best interest to fire the offensive coordinator and recommend someone that doesn’t have their head stuck up their ass.
