University of Wisconsin students have apologized to basketball coach Greg Gard after he won the regular season title.

Earlier in the season, a massive message was posted on campus for Gard to be fired ASAP. The message was posted at the end of January when things weren’t looking great, and the Badgers were only 12-9.

Now, the Badgers are Big 10 champions and hold the number one seed in the B1G tournament. In the same spot the message was posted asking for him to be fired, there’s a new message apologizing. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

I think there was certainly some fair criticism of Gard at time, but there’s no doubt he’s proven that he belongs to stay.

There have been so many problems with the team this season, and Gard isn’t responsible for most of them.

Despite all of that, Gard led the ship through choppy water to a 21-10 regular season finish and a title. You just sometimes have to admit you’re wrong and tip your cap.
