Interesting quote from Alvarez on Twitter "I don't see us as a spread offense. We can't recruit those guys consistently. You know the plan - starts w/ big palookas up front." Paul has insisted he run the spread as he hates game planning for it himself. I just dont see him taking this job with Alvarez breathing down his neck, I am sure BB felt like Alvarez second guessed a lot of his decisions since is the former coach there.
Rose Bowl for Wisconsin isn't impressive this season. Although a BCS bowl, 7-5 does not make you a good football team, especially considering the talent in the B1G this year. Ohio State is the only BCS caliber team in that conference at the moment. Baylor is 7-5 in a better conference. What if they were in the Rose Bowl??
If OSU would have played Michigan's schedule they would have had two losses as well which makes them not BCS caliber. They did go undefeated but the schedule was damn easy for them. It's too bad Robinson got hurt the Nebraska game and Gardner wasn't prepared to take over at the time. I would say Michigan and OSU were about equal as far as what they could do on the field this year.
I doubt Wisconsin has contacted anyone yet. Bielema leaving was completely out of the blue and Alvarez is going to coach in the bowl game. That's a really solid job, I don't think Alvarez fills it immediately. Crist makes the most sense for continuity and staff sake. Alvarez isn't going to bring in the latest "hot" coach. Being a coach he knows what he wants and it likely won't change much.
