Wait, is this thing on?

The only thing hotter than Wisconsin in this month's NCAA Tournament is the microphone that caught Badgers player Nigel Hayes' remarks about a stenographer during a press conference Wednesday.

It wasn't the first entertaining press conference involving Hayes and a stenographer. In Omaha on March 21, he tested the stenographer, who transcribes the quotes for media, by jokingly starting his answer to the first question from reporters with, "I would like to say a few words: cattywampus, onomatopoeia and antidisestablishmentarianism."

By the time Hayes got to Los Angeles for the Badgers' latest press conference, the stenographers were ready.

His reaction was great, and once he removed face from his hands, he got back to testing the stenographers.

Fans of SAT words and messing with stenographers will surely be rooting for Wisconsin to keep its NCAA Tournament alive when it faces North Carolina in a Sweet Sixteen game on Thursday night.
