Dear Badger Fans:
Greetings from Kellner Hall! I hope your summer is off to a great start.
I’d just like to take a moment here to thank you for your support of our student-athletes, coaches and staff this past school year. We all had the good fortune of sharing some very memorable moments in 2012-13 and so many of them were that much better because of the amazing crowds we have at Camp Randall, the Kohl Center and all of our other venues. In addition, the support you give to our teams on the road is critical and much appreciated.
It is hard to single out a particular memory and it’s impossible to rank them, but so many come immediately to mind. Ben Brust’s buzzer-beater against Michigan. The Big Ten championship football win over Nebraska. The outstanding spring performances of our softball, women’s golf and track teams. The second-half run by our men’s hockey program. The list goes on and on.
We had a 95% football season ticket renewal rate, along with requests for 1,800 new football season tickets. And undergraduate student football season tickets sold out in 90 minutes. Thank you. You are a big part of all we do and I hope you are looking forward to the upcoming 2013-14 seasons as much as we are in the athletic department. It’s going to be a lot of fun! Enjoy the above video and we’ll look forward to seeing you on campus soon.
Thanks again and On, Wisconsin!
Director of Athletics
