The Wisconsin Badgers are now apparently deciding their basketball schedule based on how many retweets their players can get.

Wisconsin senior superstar Nigel Hayes tweeted Thursday: “Coach Paris said he’d schedule an away game, vs , if this tweet gets 50K RT’s. For my family’s sake, RT!

This is a genius move by the coaching staff. Moves like this are what makes Wisconsin basketball so much better than the majority of America. (RELATED: College Basketball Star Gives Passionate Plea Urging People To Stop Using The N-Word)

Genius move by coach Greg Gard and his staff. Absolutely genius. See you all in the Final Four in 2017.
