Speaking on a Big Ten Network podcast, former Wisconsin star Brian Butch told a funny story about former Badgers coach Bo Ryan and flying on planes.
While the story is relatively well-known to Badgers basketball fans, Brian Butch once asked Coach Ryan why he always sat in the back of planes. Ryan's answer was that he's never seen a plane crash tail-first.
Later in Ryan's coaching career, a similar question was asked by Nigel Hayes, and Ryan gave the same answer. Hayes sat in the row in front of Ryan on future flights, or so goes the tale.
