It's the story of Pat Richter, then an All-American end on Wisconsin's football team and now the school's athletic director. When Richter played in the Rose Bowl against USC, he teamed with quarterback Ron VanderKelen to lead a rally in which Wisconsin slashed a 42-14 deficit to 42-37 before time ran out.

Rebuilding basketball programs for 36 years finally got the best of Dick Bennett. The defensive tactician who guided Wisconsin to an NCAA Final Four appearance last season is retiring because of burnout. "I just simply was drained. I just simply could not keep up and it began to bother me," Bennett said Thursday at a news conference, where he was flanked by his wife, Anne, and Wisconsin Athletic Director Pat Richter.
