    Hey, maybe somebody can help me out.

    My grandfather always talked about how he played linebacker for the University of Wisconsin back before the Great Depression. After that he had to drop out of college and go to work.

    I've been looking for a website that has any of the roster information for that time. I do recall him saying he was all-state as well. Does anybody know where you could find that kind of information online, or it is something buried in a filing cabinet under Camp Randall Stadium somewhere?

    Well, it's not that important. I mean, what could they tell me, "yeah he played" (unless gramps was lying I know that already). Eh, would have been cool see something in black and white. Not a big deal I guess.
