Favre was more exciting to watch, perhaps, but Rodgers never would throw six interceptions in one game. In that regard, Rodgers is a better player.

Favre, Holmgren, Reggie and Wolf may always get more love because they resurrected a moribund franchise. And that’s Ok.

But for which QB may give you a better chance to win any game, I might lean towards Rodgers.

Champion GLO Back for 2021 With A New Head Coach
[Oshkosh, WI] “Let’s GLO” Along with a championship caliber team coming back for the 2021 season so is General Manager Brad Fischer. In 2019 Fischer built a coaching staff and roster that went undefeated and won the GWBA Championship. The GLO will once again feature NCAA Division I basketball stars and former WNBA stars. Opening night will feature the first championship banner raising in the Menominee Nation Arena’s short history.
“As General Manager it is my intention to build the best women’s basketball team that has ever been assembled in Wisconsin. Despite the relative infancy of the team and our league, we will aggressively pursue the goal of being the best women’s basketball team in the country shy of the WNBA.”
The Wisconsin GLO is pleased to announce Lauren Busalacchi as the new head coach for the 2021 season. Busalacchi is the women's basketball coach at Ripon College. In 2019 Busalacchi was named Midwest Conference Women’s Basketball Coach of the Year.
"I am incredibly excited for Coach Busalacchi to put her stamp on the GLO. She earned a lot of respect from our players in her year as our assistant coach and I think that familiarity and those relationships will allow us to hit the ground running. She has continued to build a championship program at Ripon and is one of the best coaches in the region. I look forward to watching her and her staff mold this team over the course of the summer."
The Wisconsin GLO are announcing that season tickets are on sale soon, and season-ticket

UWO news release:


Here comes the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh Titan Thunder.

The University has announced plans to add a marching band to its repertoire, with the expectation that a 100-piece unit will make its debut in fall 2022. The Titan Thunder Marching Band will be an integral part of UW Oshkosh Titans game days and other campus and community events.

“Making this announcement during our sesquicentennial year is particularly impactful for our University,” said Chancellor Andrew Leavitt. “A marching band, and its pep band component, will help us add to the excitement and camaraderie that only music can create at our athletics and special events. This component of our music program will meet the stated interest of our students and prospective students.”

Development of a marching band has been on Leavitt’s priority list since he took the helm at UWO in 2014. A former marching band participant in his college days, Leavitt connected with Music Department Chair Alison Shaw soon after his arrival in Oshkosh. As the institution prepares for a fully open fall and the region moves out of the pandemic, now is the time to move this initiative forward, he said.

UWO has begun a search for a marching band director, with a target hiring date of May. That will give the director more than a year to build the program from the ground up. The new hire will play a key role in the formation of the band—including its style, instruments, uniforms and beyond.

“The music department is beyond excited to welcome the new marching band director to our team," Shaw said. "Marching band directors are some of the most dedicated educators around, and their love of music and learning is infectious. This person will take 100 or so diverse students and turn them into a group of friends, a beautiful sounding music machine and a point of pride for the university."

Student recruitment for the Titan Thunder Marching Band—or Titan Thunder, for short—will begin in the 2021-22 academic year. More information on the process and the timeline for assembling the band will be available in the months ahead.

"Marching band can bring people from widely diverse backgrounds together for a purpose that reaches beyond the individual and creates community," Shaw said. "Just like choir and other concert ensembles, it requires discipline, dedication and teamwork. These are just a few of the obvious things that will benefit the students who participate."

The work to establish the Titan Thunder at UWO comes as the University celebrates its sesquicentennial year. A pep band, made up of musicians from the marching band, also is expected to be formed for the purpose of playing at smaller indoor events, possibly as early as the 2021-22 academic year.

“The new marching band at UWO will be exciting, dynamic and a lot of fun,” said Director of Bands Devin Otto. “Students will have the opportunity to engage with each other musically and socially, and to help start new traditions that will have a positive impact on campus life for years to come."

The University of Wisconsin Oshkosh athletics department announced the launch of the Rise as One campaign Wednesday, Nov. 17—an initiative created to help navigate the financial impact of COVID-19 on Titan student-athletes, coaches and staff.

The Rise as One campaign provides an opportunity for the Titan community to play a role in continuing the tradition of Titan athletics. Through financial support, UWO can ensure UWO student-athletes continue to compete at a championship level and foster the exciting and enriching student-athletic experience.

“The Rise as One campaign allows all Titans an opportunity to support our programs as we battle through the fluctuating challenges presented to our athletics department,” Assistant Chancellor of Athletics Darryl Sims said. “We have been able to enjoy a variety of great moments during our rich history, all of which were enjoyed by our Titan family as one. We are now asking you to join us and Rise as One to support us as we look to continue to provide top tier support through your philanthropic efforts.”

The Rise as One funds will be used for COVID-19 testing and athletic and program operational assistance designed to elevate the student-athlete experience. COVID-19 tests—administrated regularly—will allow student-athletes to safely return to practice and take one step closer to competing.

Titan athletics has been postponed since COVID-19 hit last March. Postseason competition for women's basketball, women's gymnastics, men's and women's track and field, men's diving and wrestling were cancelled in spring 2020, followed by the cancellation of spring sports and fall sports this season. Winter competitions for 2020-2021 have be postponed until at least Jan. 1, 2021.

Being one step closer to competing—with the help of the Rise as One campaign—is an exciting thought for Natalie Dillon, a senior on the softball team, who is an English and journalism double major from Monroe.

“I’ve been sidelined the last two years because of injury and the virus,” Dillon said. “I want all the feelings that go along with a senior season; I want to go into my last at-bat knowing this is it. I don’t want to look back on a moment that seemed so insignificant and realize that was the last time I’d ever competitively played the sport I love.”

Because of the commitment from the Titan community, Dillon, her teammates and all the UWO athletics programs have the opportunity to emerge from this crisis. With the support of the Titan Nation, our Titans will rise and they will rise as one.

Lawrence release today. No mention of sports.

Lawrence sets plans for fall term; partners with Bellin Health for COVID-19 testing

APPLETON – Bellin Health will perform regular COVID-19 testing at Lawrence University during the coming academic year, part of a comprehensive plan for reopening the campus for fall term, university officials announced today.

The Appleton campus will open as planned for the fall term, which begins Sept. 14, with both students and faculty having the option to be on campus or remain remote. Classes will be offered in a mix of in-person and distance learning, with physical distancing requirements in place on campus.

“The university has contracted with Bellin Health to be our health care partner as we adapt as a community to living with COVID-19,” Lawrence President Mark Burstein said. “They will provide on-campus testing for all community members. We are also fortunate to have long-term existing relationships with Ascension and ThedaCare health systems in the Fox Valley, who will continue to supply essential local support.”

Students will be tested for COVID-19 by Bellin medical personnel when they arrive this fall and again 14 days later. Faculty and staff will be tested as they return to campus. Students, faculty, and staff living or working on campus will then need to complete a daily screening of temperature and symptoms. The university will continue to collaborate with the Appleton Health Department for contact tracing for anyone who tests positive for the virus
.
The academic year at Lawrence will look different than any before. Physical distancing rules will be in place and all members of the community will be required to wear masks in all indoor public spaces, including classrooms, as well as outdoor spaces where physical distancing is not possible. All members of the Lawrence community who opt to be on campus will need to sign a community pledge agreeing to follow the distancing and face-covering rules.

Lawrence’s pandemic planning team consulted with health experts, both within Wisconsin and around the country, and with various faculty, students, staff, and trustees through the shared governance process, Burstein said.

“Our goal was to ensure that every Lawrentian will have the opportunity to learn, teach, and work as fully and safely as possible,” he said.

Swanson Named Defensive Coordinator
From Asst. AD/Athletics Communications, June 16, 2020 | Football
by Dan Lukes, dan.lukes@snc.edu, (920) 403-4077

DE PERE - St. Norbert College has named Riley Swanson as its new football defensive coordinator, head coach Dan McCarty announced today.

"We are excited to announce the addition of Riley Swanson as our new defensive coordinator," McCarty said. "Riley brings a wealth of knowledge and experience from various backgrounds to our program. His energy, enthusiasm, personality are contagious. Most importantly, he's a players' coach and believes in the most fundamental aspect of our program - building long-lasting relationships with our players and treating them like our own sons."

Swanson arrives at St. Norbert after spending the 2019 season on the coaching staff at Finlandia University, where he was the defensive coordinator and also coached defensive backs. The Lions led the NCAA Division III in fewest passing yards allowed per game at 99.3.

Swanson spent the 2017-18 at NCAA Division II University of West Florida. He was the Argonauts' video coordinator and running backs coach in 2017. A year later, Swanson coached the cornerbacks and was the assistant special teams coordinator. Swanson was West Florida's communications coordinator those two seasons.

Swanson was a four-year letterwinner at Wake Forest as a defensive back. He played in 47 games for the Demon Deacons and finished his career with 179 tackles, seven interceptions and two fumble recoveries. Wake Forest won the Atlantic Coast Conference championship his senior year and played in the Orange Bowl.

Following his collegiate career, Swanson signed with the Buffalo Bills in 2007 as an undrafted free agent. His football career continued in the Arena Football League, spending the 2010, 2011 and 2013 seasons with the Arizona Rattlers and the 2012 season with the Tampa Bay Storm. Arizona won Arena Bowl XXVI in 2013.

Swanson graduated in 2006 from Wake Forest with a degree in religion.
