MADISON -- A Camp Randall tradition that registers on the Richter Scale and in the hearts of millions is no more, according to Wisconsin Athletics.

In an April Fools joke tweet, Wisconsin announced that the school has "adopted new policies protecting the structural integrity of historic landmarks on campus."

In addition, this tradition is "too intimidating." Instead, the school will do "Sit Around" in 2019.

This was quite the April Fools joke made by the Badgers, as many fans were either freaking out or having a good laugh.

The tradition will continue in 2019.
