The University of Wisconsin boasts statistics that make it one of intercollegiate athletics’ ten best programs. Although the high-profile sports, such as football, basketball, and hockey, have grabbed most of the headlines, Badger athletes have excelled on many playing fields. These unique and easy-to-read vignettes about Badger lore include the football exploits of Pat O’Dea and Alan “The Horse” Ameche; the basketball heroics of Wisconsin’s 1941 national championship team; and the thrills generated by Badger greats Suzy Favor, Pat Richter, Michael Finley, Mark Johnson, Scott Lamphear, and many more. On Wisconsin: The History of Badgers Athletics presents UW’s greatest moments and athletes, including a complete listing of Wisconsin’s nearly 10,000 letter winners and a detailed history of coaches and administrators behind the scenes. This newly revised edition examines every decade of the UW athletics since the very beginning. On Wisconsin: The History of Badgers Athletics is a must-have for the library of every UW fan.
