    I do wish all these coaching changes would be announce AFTER the bowl games, its not fair to the kids that played their guts out for the coach to be abandoned before the big dance, its also not fair to the Bowl selection committee that extended the invitation, the Rose Bowl game suddenly became very uninteresting

    We'll see how long you think that.

    Bielema is a poor game manager.
    Some coaches win the "BIG" game.
    Bielima loses the "little" games and the BIG games.
    (0-3 in the Grandaddy of them all)
    He is not well received by alumni for the losses to nobody teams that cost WI dearly.

    if you are naive to believe stars and recruting ranking means anything then shame on you. Utexas has more 5* and 4* than anyone and cant do jack squat. its all about evaluating talent and applying it to your system. petrino never had a top 25 recruiting class but yet won 21 games in 2 years with his recruits because he could coach them up and see hidden talent instead of "stars".

    bielema did same thing his recruiting ranking averaged 36th and still went to 3 straight rose bowls with multiple double digit win seasons.
    Johnny Football isn't going pro after next year.

    Texas does not have as many 5 & 4 star recruits as anyone.

    Bret Bielema has yet to field a team that plays D despite his DC background. This Wisky team could be The Worst Team Ever to go to a Rose Bowl. Let's be honest, it was The Over rated State University & nobody else. You don't win in The SEC with fat ankles.

    Default "On Wisconsin"!!!

    THE TIME TO "MOVE FORWARD".
    Time to RALLY behind Coach Alvarez, the Coaching Staff and THE TEAM.
    It is what it is. Not the time, place or choice to "sit in the cat bird seat"
    and whine ... BE A BADGER NOT A B------!!

    The Nebraska Win was a Coach - Team Effort; Great Innovation; Mind over
    Matter.

    Bring on Stanford - "GO BADGERS"!!!

    SEC has great football, no one will argue that.

    All I'm saying is Arkansas has been and will continue to be a tough place for a coach to win.

    You can attack Texas all you want, but Mack Brown won a National Championship and played for another in the past 10 years.

    Repeat. Arkansas has not won a conference championship in 23 years.
    Should have beat the gayturds & LSU? You do realize there is football past the 1st Quarter, right? Sheesh, they did nothing after the 2nd drive of the game against LSU until The Mustang Package & personal fouls gave up a cheap TD @ the end. LSU's D DOMINATED that game. Period. The gayturds' D DOMINATED in The 2nd Half. Period.

    Who wants to watch Stanford completely run roughshod on Wisky with or without BB? I'll watch a little, but that's not even a game.

    You are correct. You don't win the SEC with fat ankles. You win it with fat wallets!
