In my freshman year at UW, we foolishly camped out overnight for student section season tickets only to find that by about Week 4 the stadium was about 60% occupied. In my final year of law school, 19 years later, Barry Alvarez started the big time era with the first Rose Bowl in 30+ years.

Now they are an established and important program and wherever you go, after people learn you are from Wisconsin you are likely to hear someone say "I like that coach of yours, that Alvarez", or people ask how you spell or pronounce Bielema's name.

It is phenomenal, and props must go out fist and foremost to Donna Shalala, Barry Alvarez, Pat Richter and Bret Bielema.

This is what those big time schools were feeling for all those years when Wisconsin was battling Northwestern for bottom of the Big Ten.

Now big enough for ESPN to reference Bucky. Whooda thunk it?

Bucky Beaver is an adorable mascot.

Go Beavers. Win the Big Ten and go to the National Championship game.

You had to borrow an ACC quarterback, but still the Beavers are a great team.

Just kidding.

Bucky and Althouse, blogging all day at work! Must be a UW thing....

iqvoice said...

OT: Althouse, call your office! The current Drudge photo juxtaposition is not very subtle, but it sure made me laugh!

The Elder said...

Good one, iqvoice!

"We're number one!"

Bucky? I didn't see no Bucky. Just some really hot chick in a blue dress with a great ass.

Reminds of this song.

Now if someone would just resurrect the Elroy Hearse...

Why I never watch ESPN.

Irene said...

Who is the mascotette drawing Bucky's attention on Facebook? Is it really a beaver?

MarkG said...

Yeah, Bucky is looking a racy photos of another species. Isn't that kind of perverted?

edutcher said...

Irene, you missed your calling.

You're a better straight woman that Gracie Allen, and probably a better straight man then Bud Abbott or Jack Benny.

What mascot was Bucky checking out?

Tony Kornheiser on Hannah Storm:

""She looks like she has sausage casing wrapping around her upper body. I know she's very good, and I'm not supposed to be critical of ESPN people, so I won't ... but Hannah Storm ... come on now! Stop! What are you doing? ... She's what I would call a Holden Caulfield fantasy at this point.""

ESPN later suspended him for two weeks over the comment but he's right.

Well, it's a little premature for Bielema, but he's headed in the right direction to get his statue next to Richter and Alverez's. As for Donna - yes, she's the architect of what we have now. Wonder if she'll ever get her own statue. I'm not holding my breath.

E.M. Davis said...

As for Donna - yes, she's the architect of what we have now.

At Wisconsin:

"Under her chancellorship and with her support, the University adopted a broad speech code subjecting students to disciplinary action for communications that were perceived as hate speech."


At Miami:

"As school president, she is involved in the Nevin Shapiro sports recruiting scandal which broke in August 2011. Shapiro, who is convicted of a $930 million Ponzi scheme, allegedly provided cash, goods, prostitutes, and assorted favors to University of Miami football players and even purchased a yacht on which sex parties were held, again including prostitutes. 72 players have been implicated. Included in the case is a photograph of Shalala with Shapiro and Miami basketball coach Frank Haith receiving a $50,000 check from Shapiro in 2008. "

Yeah, Donna's a real peach.

ndspinelli said...

Alvarez reportedly lost 600k in that Miami ponzi scheme..I doubt Shalala had that much to lose, but I would be surprised if she didn't lose some $.

I met Alvarez @ jury duty a couple weeks ago. He's an engaging guy who understands his civic duty, even when it's the busiest time of year.

ndspinelli said...

Irene needs to increase her comments, they're succint and witty.

What Dadvocate said!

Anthony said...

The babe mascot is Arizona's Wilma Wildcat. I've often wondered if they really put women in the female mascot outfits or not.
