Another one for the "FWIW" category: earlier Thursday, Wisconsin passed along a list of the departing Badgers and the agents they've hired:
- RB Montee Ball: Neil Cornrich, NC Sports
- CB Marcus Cromartie: Marco Marciano, XL Sports Management
- C Travis Frederick: Joe Panos, Athletes First
- S Shelton Johnson: Brian Hamilton, Plan B Sports Management
- CB Devin Smith: Lamont Smith, Above The Rim Management
- LB Mike Taylor: Ron Slavin, BTI Sports Advisors
- LT Rick Wagner (dang, we need some clarification on Rick vs. Ricky): Joe Panos
- According to XL Sports Management's website, Marciano "negotiated deals AND BARTERS" for Tony Gonzalez, Dennis Rodman and the late Junior Seau, among others. Those others include Carmen Electra, apparently. So that's fun.
- Panos was a captain and left tackle for the Badgers. His son, George, was UW's first commit for the 2014 class back in April.
- Smith looks just like Keith David, AKA Lester Wallace from "Barbershop." Right?
