    I have a feeling you made this thread to antagonize me.

    It's a big year for the program. Lots of records being broken.

    I can't control how you feel about the records being broken.

    It would be a big year if they actually won the Rose Bowl.

    If you don't think having the longest home winning streak and a player on pace to break the college td record isn't a big deal I question your expectations.

    Winning the big 10 would be a successful yr for most

    Thats all very good but they dont win the Rose bowl it will probably be for not.

    No one will probably remember the 2011 Packers season 20 years from now. Going 15-1 just to go 1 and done.

    Yea but same logic applys. Would anyone remember the Home Winning streak ect if they crapped out in Bowl season. No anyone wouldent expect maybe a footnote and trivia.

    People remember success alot more than failure.

    Do you honestly think 20 years from now anyone would remember the Packers 15-1 season other than Rodgers winning League MVP?

    All it would be is a footnote.

    So the vitriol is because we didn't win a pair of Rose Bowls? One in which we went up against a deeper team and another in which TCU formulated an executed a brilliant scheme to attack the Badgers running game. Oregon was and is again this year one of the best teams in the country. We made a game of it in which many thought we would get ran into the ground and blown out. Probably the best offense in the country..

    Should have BB made adjustments against TCU and ran almost exclusively between the tackles.. probably. But so should have Cryst.

    The fact is, BB followed arguably the best coach in Wisconsin history, and continued to recruit and stay within the conversation of best teams in the country. This season has been one of adjustment to mass changes in the coaching staff, and they are returning to dominance. Recruiting is still strong and the program is moving long term to more of a passing offense via OC.

    Do I wish for more? Yep. I wish he wouldn't make the every now and then mistake on the field.. but overall, I think he is a top 25 coach and recruiter. Find a better coach and I will consider it... one that will stay in WI for the long term that is.

    4th - 5th round. Depending on his combine.

    [quote="The fact is, BB followed arguably the best coach in Wisconsin history...[/quote]

    There is not a chance BB is the even arguably the best coach in school history. Barry Alvarez rescued this team from complete irrelevance and turned it into a national powerhouse. Multiple Rose Bowl berths and wins. BB continued that tradition and, to his credit, hasn't allowed it to regress. But, there is little doubt that BB is an awful game-day manager and coach. He routinely gets out-maneuvered and went to the Andy Reid school for timeouts. There is just no way he will ever be able to stack up to Alvarez given what BB has to work with - i.e. a team that can already recruit nationally and players want to come to - compared to what Alvarez had to work with - he could only recruit statewide and had to rebuild an entire program. Plus, if BB was Alvarez's equal, he'd have a Rose Bowl victory by now. No chance Alvarez gets outcoached that badly by an inferior TCU team.

    Ha. I read it too fast and missed the operative word "followed". My mistake. Please disregard my rant.

    Least BARRY had q/b that lasted a half and not break collar bones ;) but lets not a silly broken collar bone stop the bashing

    One would think that since you hold BARRY to such GOD like qualities, you could spell his 1st name right

    lol

    Bielema=good recruiter, ? game day coach. And he's easy to dislike on TV. He won the first ever Big 10 Championship playoff, and will have another chance to do it this year. I hated the coaching in the TCU Rose Bowl, but they were beaten by a better team last year. We could have a lot worse, that's for sure.

    Its a slight typo I was tired.

    Barry he was such a damn good coach. He could win games when it mattered.
