That's pretty much any conference. The SEC just hides it better. :razz: :razz: :razz: :razz:

Well he is them now. Good riddance Bret.
Gotta love your enthusiasm :cool: - when I was just out of the U of WA - I remember playing the Badgers in the Rose Bowl - 1959 - the Badgers were heavy favorites - Ron Van Der Kellen was your QB & our UW had a one eyed QB named Bob Schloredt - A UWI grad at our Mine gave me 8 1/2 points for $5 (real money in those days, at least for me & one of the few FB bets I have made over the years) & his team lost 44-8 to a Jim Owens team (Jim Owens could have coached in any league). Tho I was a student through 2 years at WA I never attended a FB game there, we leave that privilege to the non college graduate fans :-P.

Marvin, Thanks for your Post #34.
With due respect to all the fine U. Washington Coaches, Players and Bowl
The 1959 Rose Bow, Iowa defeated the Golden Bears 38-12.
The 1963 Rose Bowl, first Bowl # 1 (SC) v. #2 (WI) SC won 42-37.
That game has been called ... "Game of the Century" ... "Greatest Bowl
Game ever". Pete Breatherd (SC QB) & Ron Vander Kelen (WI QB) both named
"Player of the Game". Down 42-14 in the 4th Quarter, Vander Kelen handled
several drives to score 23 unanswered points.
RE post #31 - "Stanford will run the Badgers out of Pasadena" ...
THAT'S NOT YET A FACT. You all will know better late 1-1-13 when an
accurate post morteum is available.
Milwaukee Journal Sentinel ...
A.D. Alvarez will oversee the Wisconsin team in the interim and might coach against Stanford in the Rose Bowl. Alvarez went 3-0 in the R.B. in 16
seasons as head coach of the Badgers.
Two sources close to the program said Alvarez has a short list ...
at the top is Paul Chryst previous OC. now at Pittsburgh. An option
would be to promote from current asst. coaches, Partridge or Chris
The clock is ticking ... GO BADGERS!!
