MADISON, Wis. — Put on your shiny shoes and dress slacks Saturday at the Kohl Center, because the “Bo Tie” is back.
All fans that attend Saturday’s Wisconsin game against Minnesota will receive a free “Bo Tie” T-shirt featuring Badgers basketball coach Bo Ryan’s face across a giant screenprinted bow tie and vest. Last year, similar shirts were issued for one game only to the university’s “Grateful Red” student section.
The shirts are part of the “Suits and Sneakers” weekend, a nationwide annual event in which coaches are encouraged to wear sneakers to raise awareness for the fight against cancer. Coaches from both Wisconsin and Minnesota will wear sneakers with their suits on Saturday.
