Nigel Hayes says goodbye to Wisconsin in The Player's Tribune

Today in The Player's Tribune, Nigel Hayes writes about his time at Wisconsin and his social activism, as well as being a student-athlete and what he learned during his years in Madison.

An excerpt from his post, which you can read in full by going here:

Thank you to all my classmates, teammates, coaches, professors and friends for being part of a community that I will always be grateful for. If you care about something, you want to make it better. I hope that in some small way I challenged Wisconsin to be better. I know it made me a better student, athlete and person.

Oh, and one last thing: We really need to come up with a plan to pay student-athletes.
