Badgers' Freshman wants Will Ferrell at the Final Four


by John Cuoco

MILWAUKEE- Last week CBS 58 told you about Nigel Hayes, a Freshman forward on the Badgers, and his locker room persona "Nigel Burgundy."

Hayes wants  Will Ferrell, the man who created the character Ron Burgundy, to come meet the Badgers basketball team and to do a show with him at the Final Four in Texas.

Recently the University has been posting videos on "YouTube" of Hayes interviewing teammates, coaches and other staff as "Nigel Burgundy."

Hayes thinks Ferrell would fit right in with the team.

This is the team's first Final Four since 2000.
