Last week reports surfaced that Wisconsin AD Barry Alvarez was going to announce a football ticket price raise, however in the latest edition of Wisconsin's online magazine 'Varsity' he announced that all ticket prices will remain at current levels for football, men's basketball, and men's hockey and he also made some news with airing his thoughts on Big Ten divisional realignment.
He made it pretty clear that for him geography and the ability of fans to travel easily to away games are the two biggest factors he is looking at for the future of the conference. Of course he is also looking at making sure rivalries stay in tact too.
Just ask any Badgers fan and the loss of playing Iowa on a regular basis really didn't sit well with them. Expect Alvarez to fight to make sure that that never happens again.
"I want to play Iowa every year," said Alvarez. "I didn't like not playing Iowa the last two years. I know our fans didn't like it either. I want to continue to play Minnesota every year."no comments
