A year ago, UW athletic director Barry Alvarez made an offhanded comment during a television interview about possibly bringing baseball back. Alvarez quickly qualified his remarks, saying he had been talking hypothetically and down the road. But it was enough to get the State Journal's Andy Baggot to write a column trotting out the numbers and showing that financially, at least, it wasn't unrealistic. I remember when the so called savior of Badger Athletics, Pat Richter, canned the baseball program at UW. A program that had been in existence since 1870. It was a sad day that I hope can be rectified when Barry Alvarez resurrects Bucky Badger back to baseball diamond. GO BUCKY!!!!!!!
