Wisconsin basketball forward Nigel Hayes challenged all of Badgers athletics after a football player did a crazy dunk.
What started out as an impressive dunk by Wisconsin linebacker Joe Schobert on Wednesday quickly turned into a Badgers athletics Twitter war, spearheaded by junior forward Nigel Hayes.
Wisconsin football posted a video of Schobert, who is listed at 6'2," pulling off a between-the-legs dunk and getting mobbed by his team for the feat. The video found its way to Hayes, who found the dunk impressive but was quick to remind everyone not to get too carried away.
Hayes then issued a challenge to every sports team at Wisconsin.
Wisconsin volleyball immediately accepted, but Hayes wasn't too impressed.
Hayes was even willing to take on the Badgers band.
Softball was next to accept the challenge.
Ex-Badgers star Sam Dekker, who is now a Houston Rocket, even volunteered to come back to help out.
And on Thursday, Hayes reissued his challenge, just in case anyone thought he wasn't serious.
