Welp late last night Badger fans got exactly what we wanted after the Bielema shi#tshow to start the week. Barry is stepping down from the ivory tower to defend his perfect Rose Bowl record! All I have to say is that if he doesn't go to mid-field when he walks out and grab a mic before pulling a Rock and screaming 'FINALLLY....The Barry.....HAS COME BACK TO PASADEEEENNNNAAAA' it is truly a shame. You've got to love this move though. All of a sudden it swings the momentum WAY in Bucky's favor. You go from being an 8-5 team who got in on a 'technicality' to being a team with an 8-5 record, a technicality and no coach, to being an 8-5 team about to be lead by a college football hall of famer who has never lost in Pasadena. Major upgrade in every way. Barry Alveraz: I don't always coach in Rose Bowl's, but when I do, I leave a Pac 12 trail of tears in my wake.
PS: I guess the 6 team captains went to him personally to ask him to coach which is pretty neat. Either that or it was 6 ABC execs with Montee Ball, Travis Frederick, Mike Taylor, Chris Borland, Shelton Johnson and Ricky Wagner name-tags on. The only people more happy about this announcement than Badger fans were travel agents, ticket brokers and network execs.
Double PS: This Bielema photo was making the rounds yesterday and it struck me as funny for some reason. Guess those windbreakers really are slimming?
I think Kramerica might have a product you might be interested in Bret;
