History of No. 59 at Wisconsin:
Mario Pacetti (OL, 1932-34): Was a member of the 1932 team that went 6-1-1 and according to most historians is easily the best offensive lineman the Badgers had in the 1930's. Pacetti's life after playing at Wisconsin is a sad tale as he committed suicide shortly after the 1934 season just before receiving word that he would be accpected to West Point (the United State Military Academy).
