>>Camp Randall Stadium Seats Will Be Empty In 2020
(Madison, WI) — Wisconsin Director of Athletics Barry Alvarez says this year’s return to football will be “nothing like the experience we all love.” The Badgers will play their home games in Camp Randall Stadium with nobody in the stands, no “Jump Around,” no game-day atmosphere. Alvarez says his department is facing a deficit of 60-to-100 million dollars this season. He’s asking season ticket holders to donate the money they spent on game packages to U-W athletics rather than asking for a refund. Those season ticket holders will also have the option of rolling this year’s purchase to the 2021 season. Wisconsin opens the football season at home against Indiana September 4th.
>>Wisconsin Women’s Basketball Lands Important In-State Commitment
(Madison, WI) — Wisconsin women’s basketball coach Jonathan Tsipis got the player he has been pursuing. Five-10 guard Maty Wilke of Beaver Dam committed to the Badgers Tuesday as part of the Class of 2021. Wilke notified Tsipis during a Facetime call Monday night. Beaver Dam has a 75-and-6 record in Wilke’s three seasons of play, with only one loss to a Wisconsin team. The Golden Beavers were only two wins away from a fourth straight Wisconsin state championship when the high school season was ended by the coronavirus pandemic.
