Mac, no hard feelings here. But I will point out that you didn't answer my question: what noteworthy things have other Badger teams done this year that HAVEN'T been covered? McRib has a point - instead of putting the onus on the paper to cover everything under the sun, it should be on our athletes to strive toward excellence. It's actually a pretty important life lesson for our talented local athletes: they have to earn recognition. Sure, giving everybody equal coverage makes us feel all warm and fuzzy inside, but it doesn't make achieving that coverage as big of an accomplishment as it should be. As the adults in this situation, we should be setting this example instead of trying to bully the sports department to cheapen the integrity of the sports coverage they provide. Just a thought!
