CoE, Committee on Academic Staff Issues, and the Academic Staff Connections Team

by Al Wortley, Professor Emeritus
Engineering Professional Development

An unsanctioned, unofficial, unbiased, and unexpurgated narrative of how a civil engineer does his public duty (through heat and cold, and rain and snow) and life on the Camp Randall sidelines. Things you may have wondered about but couldn't find anyone to ask. Fall madness! For 34 years, Al has served on the Badger sidelines on "the chain gang," or, one of the guys who holds the chains they use to verify a first down. His talk is a humorous look at football from the sidelines, complete with PowerPoint slides, a short video, and a brief hands-on demonstration of how the chain gang makes measurements.
