Bielema Already Under Fire at Wisconsin

Bret Bielema's record as Wisconsin coach is 0-0, but this is a tough bunch in Madtown. Andy Baggott of the Wisconsin State Journal is questioning the hiring of Bielema as the Badger coach. "What I see in Bielema after two seasons at UW is a guy with a questionable upside. A year after inheriting exceptional personnel, his defense has fallen off dramatically. The area that seemed to have the most flaws and was most underdeveloped, linebacker, is the unit Bielema oversees." Ouch! And while we're at it, the Wiz has one for you. Expect the outgoing Barry Alvarez to get back into coaching, quite possibly at Nebraska if Bill Callahan is fired at the end of next season. Remember, you heard it here first.

He's the athletic director in Madison. If he was only interested in coaching, he would have accepted Shalala's offer to coach the Miami Hurricanes several years ago.
