Bad recruiting and nearly 80% win rate...ok
I'm not bagging on him and you don't need to defend him to death because he's a Hog now, just like you.
My point is I've watched him mire in medeocrity for 7 years at Wisconsin, and watch him post 10-2 records while dropping games to every top 10 team on the schedule. What he did up there with relative ease will be 25x harder down here given his abilities (or lack there of) to pull in talent when he had no legitimate competition for it.
He may turn out better. Even as a fan of the Badgers, I never liked the guy. Always thought Wisconsin could have been better. We'll see I guess. I think Wisconsin got the better end of the deal though.
