Based on more than 20 years behind a Madison microphone, this autobiographical account follows the University of Wisconsin Badgers’ play-by-play announcer as he witnessed the college’s famed golden era of athletics. Sharing the author’s memories of the Badgers’ successful run on the gridiron, the chapters document highlights such as Barry Alvarez leading the team to 11 bowl games in 16 seasons—including three Rose Bowl wins—and his successor, Brett Bielema, posting four 10-win seasons and advancing to a bowl game each year. Badgers’ basketball is also covered, chronicling the men’s streak of five winning seasons, four qualifications for the NCAA tournament, a Final Four appearance in 2000, and more. Detailing the personalities that have helped shape Wisconsin sports during this monumental period, this sports memoir also features revealing stories on the teams’ legendary coaches as well as star players including Mike Kelley, Alando Tucker, Erasmus James, and Montee Ball.
