    (1/3) Jarrod Uthoff met with Assoc AD Justin Doherty & Director of Athletics Barry Alvarez Thursday as part of the appeal process. #Badgers

    (2/3) Doherty,Alvarez& Bo Ryan collectively decided UW Athletics will lift all “permission to contact” restrictions outside Big Ten #Badgers

    (3/3) Ryan is supportive of denials of Big Ten institutions only and has wanted appeals process to serve as a means for dialogue. #Badgers

    Wisconsin met with Jarrod Uthoff and has announced that all transfer restrictions have been lifted except for Big Ten schools.

    Not surprised after this a.m.'s interview on Mike and Mike, as this is sort of what I thought no Ryan was trying to say.

    He sure didn't say it very clearly though. Good to see cooler heads prevail.

    A means for dialogue? What crap. If it's over, it's over. No point explaining, negotiating, apologizing. The drama was unnecessary.

    See, he was just trying to start a dialogue on transfer athletes. Everyone should just back off Bo Ryan now.

    We like to bash on the media for various things and often deservedly so, but this was 100% reversal because of media coverage shining a light on it.

    He was transferring no matter what and this caused a top ESPN story today shining Bo's program in a negative light, of course he'd reverse, it was a no brainer once it got negative attention.

    Bo was definitely on damage control today and he struggled to do that right. That being said Wisconsin definitely made the right decision to lift the restrictions, eventually.
