Football: Assistant strength coach leaves program

Since Gary Andersen has taken over at the helm, turnover within the Badger football program has been dramatic and it grew even more dramatic Tuesday, as Wisconsin assistant strength coach Brian Bott has resigned due to family reasons. While his contract lasts until Sunday, Bott announced the move June 10 to the players, according to Tom Mulhern of the Wisconsin State Journal.

Column: It's a Father-Son Thing

I'm bad at giving gifts. Don't get me wrong, I'll always give gifts to my immediate family but I'll do it in the worst possible fashion. For Christmas, I'll usually give my sisters money out of my wallet the morning of, while giving my parents a gift card of their choice. With this being said, the most economically efficient gift I could give to my dad this Father's Day is through my column.

Column: Coaches’ verbal and physical abuse need to come to an end

The player-coach relationship is an interesting one if you take a look at the longevity of it in the realm of college athletics. You have coaches like UCLA’s John Wooden, Duke’s Mike Krzyzewski, North Carolina’s Dean Smith and Alabama’s Nick Saban who stand at the pinnacle of this relationship and reflect the qualities of character, equality and hard work, and the list goes on and on.


Football: White's time to shine

Ever since Wisconsin athletic director and former head coach Barry Alvarez paced the sidelines, the Badgers have established themselves as one of the premier running teams in the country. A massive offensive line coupled with athletic yet powerful tailbacks have led the program to six Big Ten championships and as many Rose Bowl appearances since Alvarez’s arrival in 1990.


Column: Athletes must be more careful with alcohol

You’ve had a couple of drinks and you’re feeling courageous enough to talk to the good-looking girl across the bar. You have a couple more drinks and realize that time is flying by, forcing you to drunkenly shuffle your hands through your pockets to find your keys. As you tell your friends goodbye with a drunken slur, you stumble your way to the car and force your keys into the ignition, putting yourself and everyone on the road at risk in the wee hours of the night.

Column: Louisville’s team unity leads to championship

As I contemplated what to write my column about this week, I came to a standstill. Should I write about the mess at Rutgers and the mind-boggling severance package head coach Mike Rice received? Eh, perhaps. What about the allegations regarding the 2010 Auburn national title championship team? No, allegations surrounding championship programs should be old news by now. While I could have torn Rutgers and Auburn a new one, I had the odd urge to be nostalgic and sentimental with my column for the mere reason to shy away from the norm.

Column: Brewers viable option to fill sports-viewing void in spring

There is a distinct cycle in terms of sports viewing in the state of Wisconsin. Throughout the fall, Saturdays have traditionally been reserved for Wisconsin football, while Sundays are religiously dedicated to the Green Bay Packers. As the Wisconsin and Marquette basketball programs get underway, some attention may be diverted toward those teams, yet they will still never amass the type of die-hard viewing reception the Packers or Badger football team receive.
