In the aftermath of the Badgers Final Four celebration, I caught up with Wisconsin's high profile fan, Packers QB Aaron Rodgers and got his thoughts on the game, Bo Ryan, and the site of the Final Four.
On the OT thriller: "It's pretty nerve wracking to be up in the stands. But this is so much fun to be around."
On the Badgers team: "Frank and the guys played really well. Incredible plays down the stretch. Some suspect reffing I think at times."
On the Final Four being played at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, the site of the Packers most recent Super Bowl victory: "Special place. There's been some Wisconsin victories in that place."
On the special nature of this: "This is something that those kids will remember for the rest of their lives and it's fun to be able to encourage them."
On the Badgers fans: "The crowd support was amazing from the Badgers fans. I think most people were excited to get out of the weather."
Final thoughts on this incredible run: This is exciting and the Badgers will have a blast and hopefully get to Monday and win it all."
