The NCAA, EA Sports settlement is in. And athletes could receive thousands. According to legal documents obtained by USA Today, many athletes are “likely” to receive “at least $1,000” and some could receive “$6,700 or more.” *** Fun piece from SI.com, which wonders what is your program’s brand? And what should it be? *** So, with Bo Ryan poised to leave after this season, who is his likely replacement?

There are a number of creative cakes featured in the post, ranging from birthdays to weddings  to baby showers.

Big Ten basketball leads nation in attendance in 2014-15

We asked Wisconsin personalities for their top 5 players of Bo Ryan era

News that the 2015-16 season will be the 15th and final run for iconic Wisconsin coach Bo Ryan shook the college hoops world last week. So, we gathered around the Keurig machine in the break room of the Big Ten Network skyscraper and thought: Who are the five best players who have toiled under Ryan since he arrived in 2001-02? I asked six media members who cover the Badgers for their opinion. I awarded five points for a No. 1 vote, four for a No. 2 and so on. Cue “On, Wisconsin!” The results … 1.
