Cook was one of four men featured in a popular credit card ad who had attended the first 44 Super Bowls, starting with Super Bowl I (né the AFL–NFL World Championship Game) in 1967.

Defeated, by 13th-ranked Wisconsin on Saturday, the Ohio State men’s basketball team. The Buckeyes had won all of their previous 24 games and were the last team in Division I to lose a game.

The Badgers close out their series with Ohio State in Columbus on March 6. Get your lozenges ready?
