Friday’s win vs Badgers was emotional
With at least 400 cheering Phoenix fans filling the stands behind the UW-Green Bay bench, Friday’s road win was something different. Not because the 10-0 Phoenix prevailed — the team has won seven straight against Big Ten opponents, and handled the Badgers by 26 last December — but because coach Matt Bollant was reportedly passed over for the Madison coaching job in April. The Green Bay Press-Gazette played up that angle in its next-day game coverage.
