Badger Football, former coaches, and crazy stats

Badgers football. We love it! And we're looking forward to Coach Chryst lead the team to victory (hopefully, we don't count our chickens) over Purdue on Saturday.

Meanwhile, former head coach Gary Andersen and Oregon State just parted ways after a dismal record under his tenure, and Bret Bielema is in the hot seat at Arkansas - trust me, I've read articles and comments on Razorback fan pages. Wow.

Seems like coaches do better in Madison than elsewhere. Even Paul Chryst, who had a 19-19 record at Pitt, is rockin' it again now that he's back here.

A lot of this goes to Barry Alvarez of course, whose arrival here in 1990 was a truly unbelievable turning point for the Wisconsin football program. This article on SBNation.com lays all of this out nicely, including this remarkable graphic:

Wow, right?? I remember the Don Morton era, the Veer Offense (too soon?!?), and having 2 wins in a season vs. 1 the previous season was considered progress. Truly interesting reading here, as we get ready for Saturday's game.

And join us at the Badger Bash at Union South if you're going! Pre-game tailgate party starts at 12:30pm!
