Hey everybody- I hope you're enjoying the long weekend! A big thank you is in order to all our service members that paid the ultimate price for us. Anyway, linkage is a bit light today but I wanted to get something up for you to peruse. 

Andy Baggot of says Wisconsin athletic director Barry Alvarez "wouldn't even try" to start selling beer in Camp Randall. This comes after West Virginia's athletic department floated the idea of selling suds at Mountaineers games. Alvarez says while beer may provide extra revenue, the potential negatives outnumber the positives. 


Baggot also writes that coaching changes have barely affected the Wisconsin men's hockey team for next season. It's a nice contrast to last year, where the Badgers lost a few assistants to other programs. This year the Badgers will only have to deal with one new coach: Mel Pearson, who is starting his first year at Michigan Tech.

Check out Adam Rittenberg's latest Big Ten blog. There's some cool information about a tradition the Badgers used to have, before the fun-haters at the NCAA decided to change the rules. Jerks. 


Former Wisconsin forward Jon Leuer is enjoying his NBA job interviews, according to Jeff Potrykus of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. He's recently "interviewed" with Miami, Oklahoma City, and Chicago; and he plans to visit Boston and Detroit soon. Definitely wished my job interviews were more sports-related.


Nebraska's excellent SB Nation site Corn Nation continued its Big Ten countdown with #33, which features none other than Ron Dayne. Seems appropriate to me! Just in case you'd forgotten, the Cornhuskers officially become a Big Ten member on July 1. 


Finally, check out an update on the Badger track and field team from There are other sports going on right now, in case you'd forgotten. 

That's all for me today! Have a fun and safe holiday everybody.
