The Badgers are getting ready to face UNC in the Sweet Sixteen tonight, but all the talk yesterday was focused around Nigel Hayes and his silly antics during press conferences. You see, Nigel likes to have fun with the stenographers at press conferences (those are the people who transcribe what is being said for reporters) by saying crazy words. All in good fun, but yesterday the tables were turned when Nigel said the word “syzygy” then made a comment about the stenographer being beautiful…..yeah, the microphone is on. Cue the hysterical laughter, even Nigel laughed it off.

Sam Dekker and Frank Kaminsky got quite the kick out of it too. The stenographer who captured Nigel’s eye is the one on the right.

The Wisconsin Badgers take on the University of North Carolina Tarheels tonight at 6:45 to advance to the Elite Eight of the NCAA Tournament.
