The Wisconsin Badger's 1984 win over Ohio State
This original serigraph print by America's Sports Artist, Rick Rush, is about college football … Wisconsin football, a top-notched program, and one of the original members of the Big Ten Conference.
This print is about the tradition of Badger football. More specifically, it is about the 1984 season and the part that the team and staff had in adding to this already tradition-rich university.
During the 1984 season, the Badgers were on the road to play Michigan, Illinois, Ohio State, Minnesota and Wyoming. This print is about the big win, 16-14 over Ohio State. It depicts #7 Mike Howard, who had a great game, handing the ball off to #34 Marc Harrison, a senior who had over 200 yards rushing during the victory. Also shown is #72 Jeff Dellenbach, a three year seasoned blocker, with #66 Bob Landsee, a two year letterman, clearing the way for Harrison.
On the sidelines is Coach Dave McClain who coached at Wisconsin for over 25 years and had a lot to do with adding to the tradition of Badger football. Also on the sidelines is Elroy "Crazy Legs" Hirsch who may be the most well-known of all the Badgers.
Wisconsin football is a happening during the fall. The excitement includes the old-fashioned pep rallies, Camp Randall Stadium, smoked brats, and a pre-game march down State Street behind the Bucky Wagon, the cheerleaders, and of course the sensational Wisconsin Marching Band. This print has been created to help capture for all time this great college tradition.
