Just watched the story on BTN that Barry Alvarez could coach Wisconsin in the Rose Bowl.
Don't know if any truth to the rumor.
I think I read somewhere that Alvarez had known Bielema was looking around for the past couple of weeks. If that's true, I would assume he's already got a short list of candidates to replace Bielema, so it shouldn't take that long before Wisconsin hires someone else. IMO, the sooner they can hire the next guy, the better, with the obvious caveat that it's better to take your time and hire the right guy than rush it and hire the wrong guy. That wouldn't be a bad move for him to coach the Rose Bowl, but I would assume/hope that the long term head coach would still be on campus forming his staff and recruiting.
I think that would be better than BB coaching them. I read that he still wants to coach them there. I would tell him tough, and hit the road
Wondering if BB will, or already has the Bucky Tattoo on the opposite leg, from his Hawkeye one.
'Texan by birth, Hawkeye by the Grace of God'
I also heard that on BTN last night.
Maybe Alvarez will pull a Snyder (K-State) and come back to the sidelines.
Alverez knows how to win in the Rose Bowl and has the experience.
I'm not a Badger fan, but would be yelling for Alverez. I like the guy in how he built the Wisconsin program.
I posted this in the stunner thread, but this one is more about it, I suppose, ESPN reporting that Alvarez will coach the Rose Bowl
