Wisconsin’s football players probably have a decent amount of Badgers gear, but earlier this week, they each apparently gained one more item for their wardrobe – a bucket hat. Badgers head coach Gary Andersen held a contest called the “bucket hat challenge”, which featured one player from each position group trying to land a golf ball inside the Wisconsin “W” at midfield with a pitching wedge.
Most players failed, including Derek Watt, a junior fullback who shanked the shot and hit his teammates. But Andersen, after telling his team that they’d all get hats if he stuck the approach, hit an absolutely perfect chip.
Sure, it’s clearly just a team building exercise. But it’s still pretty funny to see how people react when they’re given anything for free.
