Gard has jokes! Badger players spill on head coaches humor

Posted: Updated:

PHILADELPHIA, Pa. (WKOW) -- Coach Greg Gard has a way with his players. That way involves a certain type of humor that most of his players describe as "corny". 

"Yeah on a scale of 1 to 10, like 35. I don't know if I've heard somebody so corny, " Badger guard Jordan Hill said with a smile, "Coach Ryan had some bad ones but Coach Gard is really, really bad."

Hill, a redshirt-sophomore, has been around the likes of former head coach Bo Ryan and current head coach Greg Gard for a few more years than freshman forward Charlie Thomas. But still, Thomas laughs at the thought of Gard's funny one-liners. 


"It can be a little corny sometimes. Like you saw the Sweet 16 after the game, he was like, "Oh, this is really sweet...Sweet 16!", Thomas said as he described Gard's planned out joke involving a bottle of orange juice in the locker room, "But he's pretty funny with those things but you know, Gard's a funny guy."

The Badgers play the Fighting Irish Friday at 6:27 p.m. (CT) on TBS.
