Wisconsin Badger football coach Bret Bielema loves the support his team gets
from its fans, including the school’s student body.
But Bielema and athletic director Barry Alvarez sent out an e-mail to the students asking them to stop taking part in vulgar chants.
Bielema didn’t say the vulgar chants have cost UW a recruit, but the Badger coach said it certainly doesn’t help.
Bielema knows how much of an impact the students can make on a football game. But they chants also have a negative effect on recruits and their families.
The Wisconsin athletic department has received negative feedback from people who attended the Nebraska game and witnessed the vulgar chants first hand.
