12:05 a.m.:
The team hits the hotel once more to shower and, after a couple hours of lay time, heads to the airport to catch a red-eye flight to Minneapolis, then to Chicago. It's been a great trip and we can't wait to see what the spring and fall has in store for us. IMG_9209_airport_sm.jpg

10:03 a.m.: After gathering in the hotel lobby for breakfast, the team heads to a nearby meeting room to go over film. Never too early (in the morning) or too late (in the week) to polish up on in-game strategies.

9:42 a.m.: As a result of the change in time zone, the Badgers got two extra hours of sleep before breakfast. The players really appreciated the hotel's buffet, especially "build-your-own-omelet" station.
