In a SportsCenter interview with Andy Katz on Sunday, Wisconsin coach Bo Ryan reminisces about a story from 1998, when the Ryan coached UW-Platteville squad went 30-0 and won the Division III national championship.

Ryan recalls that after the game, his late father, Butch, who passed away in August 2013, held up a sign that read, "Bring on Duke," while the team was taking its championship picture.

Coincidence? Maybe. The Badgers face the Blue Devils for the 2015 national championship on Monday night.
