Barry Alvarez has announced he's stepping down as head coach at Wisconsin after this season, to be replaced by DC Bret Bielema. I sure hope most people realize just how great of a job he did at Wisconsin. To say they were a cellar dwellar when he arrived is an understatement. The Don Morton era for the Badgers was pretty sad. But Alvarez churned out winning seasons and bowl games and 3 Rose Bowl titles. He's one of the best coaches in the Big Ten and he will be hard for Bielema to replace. Hats off to Coach Alvarez for a fine career as head coach!
