A federal judge has ruled in favor of Ed O'Bannon plaintiffs in the landmark lawsuit against the NCAA. According to USA TODAY, U.S. District Judge Claudia Wilken issued a 99-page ruling that prevents the NCAA "from enforcing any rules or bylaws that would prohibit its member schools and conferences from offering their FBS football or Division I basketball recruits a limited share of the revenues generated from the use of their names, images, and likenesses in addition to a full grant-in-aid.

The day has come, folks. @BadgerFootball had previously touted a "big announcement" coming during Gary Andersen's ESPN Radio appearance on "SVP and Russillo" Wednesday afternoon but we know by now to temper expectations for summertime Twitter action. Anyway, it's cool to have Coach A on board. The bar for Wisconsin head football coach social media game has been set pretty high (or low?), so let's see how this goes.

Two Badger targets to pick a school today

2

Due to Big Ten media day news, we didn't have time for a proper recruiting notebook for today, but you know we've always got time for you eventually, baby. A couple of quick recruiting notes to get you through your Tuesday: Mon Denson (three-star Georgia running back) is deciding where he will commit today at 1 p.m. CT. He's got South Carolina, North Carolina, Tennessee, Wisconsin and Arkansas as his final five. Most recruiting types have him going to the Gamecocks. Three-star Tallahassee offensive lineman Brendan Loftus is also announcing his commitment today at approximately 1:22 p.m. CT at a big Florida panhandle media day event. His final three schools include UW, FAU and The U. Most project him picking Miami. A four-star 2016 WR from Philadelphia announced his top five yesterday and Wisconsin made the cut. Cameron Chambers also tabbed Michigan, Ohio State, Michigan State and Alabama as his top schools.

This seems like a natural idea considering the program's ties -- Barry Alvarez has even admitted to modeling Wisconsin's walk-on program after Nebraska's. But what would the trophy be? Just check the replies to that tweet for a few early takes. Yes, it's likely that Wisconsin just scored again.
