[quote]I was the first in my family to go to college. Mississippi State was my only real option. LSU for grad school was strictly convenience and where I was in life at the time.

[quote]Plenty of good coordinators make terrible head coaches. [/quote] Good point. However that only happens when the coordinators are not ready. With the experience Chryst has and his jump into the Pittsburgh deep end three years ago (with Alvarez's encouragement), he's as ready as he'll ever be. ...

Thanks Bucky, good explanation.
My mother's family were from northern Wisconsin and they all went to school in Madison, so I know how unique UW is. Great academic tradition centered in a liberal-populist town centered in a conservative State with a history of Bob LaFollett and 40 years of social...

Tough news from Madison. I was really happy to see the Anderson hire.
I don't buy his frustration with the entry requirements at UW. They're tough no doubt, but Alvarez and Bielema succeeded under these restrictions as do coaches at many other top academic schools. Anderson knew what he was getti...
