Gary Andersen wanted to have a little fun at fall camp, so the Wisconsin coach came up with a game.
Bucket Hat Trivia, he called it.
At the end of a team meeting, Andersen called out a few players and asked them a question. If they gave the correct answer, they were rewarded with a Badgers bucket hat.
The best prize handed out was far better than a bucket hat, though.
Andersen called redshirt sophomore walk-on long snapper Connor Udelhoven’s name and asked him a question about how many walk-ons have been awarded scholarships.
Udelhoven answered the question incorrectly, but then Andersen did a very cool thing by making him part of the new answer. Here’s the video:
THREE THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW
1. On Thursday, a vote will be held to determine whether the Power 5 leagues are granted autonomy and some legislative freedom. Does this mean the Power 5 leagues will be separate from the rest of Division I? Will they have full control over their league’s legislation? There’s a lot of confusion around the autonomy discussion, and Stewart Mandel has a simple and insightful piece that addresses the fundamental questions.
2. An update on TCU’s Devonte Fields: He met with university officials on Tuesday and remains separated from the team, although the school did not clarify whether Fields will be back with the team. A report out of Fort Worth, Texas, indicated that it’s unlikely Fields ever suits up for TCU again.
1. Southeastern radio maven Paul Finebaum has a new book on the SEC, and here is an excerpt on Alabama coach Nick Saban. “[Saban’s] a joyless winner,” Finebaum writes. “He’s the kind of guy who would greet a winning lottery ticket with: ‘How much is this going to cost me in taxes?’”
1. Georgia ran the Oklahoma drill at practice on Tuesday, and below is the video. Part of me thinks, “Awesome – Oklahoma drill video!” But the smarter part of me thinks, “Isn’t it kind of dumb to run your most valuable asset — RB Todd Gurley – into the teeth of defense over and over at practice when you need him for 250 or so touches this fall to have any chance in the SEC East?”
