Link. (For hiring of Wisky DC, not hiring of Petersen.)

Thank you, Denicos.

RT @SIPeteThamel: Al Golden, a favorite of Barry Alvarez, has emerged heavily at Wisconsin. Source says Golden mulling a decision today.
Golden is a really good coach and would be a great hire and a natural fit. Surprised he wasn't considered for the PSU job.
A swing and a miss:
RT @SIPeteThamel: Just got word that Al Golden is flattered by Alvarez's interest but staying at Miami.
Funny, I saw him last week in an intense phone call looked a bit flustered....he's free to leave the U at any time due to them lying to him. I'm sure he's also sick of playing in front of 10 people and dealing with recruiting in South Florida.
This is getting stupid. All of these journalists have "a source" but are showing just how little credibility they have. You would think they'd at least try to confirm a rumor to determine if it's true, but apparently not. It's all about being the first to "report" something.
Welcome to the "Izzo to XXXX" rumors we MSU fans have dealt with for the better part of a decade.
Report: Mike Riley to interview for Wisconsin vacancy: #collegefootball http://wp.me/p14QTT-QGi
He's there right now. Beavs Rivals board got a hold of Flight Track and found the Corvallis to Kenosha flight
May hear tomorrow who it is since that's when that stupid application deadline is up. Honestly, at this point, new candidates are still being mentioned as "legit". Just read about Matt Campbell from Toledo which would not be a good hire. Diaco, Chryst, and Rudolph apparently haven't even been contacted. So basically no one has any idea at this point.
Tucker seems like the leader in the clubhouse, with guys like Riley a long shot, Petersen a pipe dream, and the others we thought would be candidates (mentioned above) supposedly never in play.
And Porky poached two more coaches...got the S&C coach now. Hopefully the new coach is able to keep at least a couple of these guys around with a new contract and bump in pay.
porky huh?...appropriate now that he coaches the Razorbacks: don't be so butt hurt CB....he's just gettin' the band back together which is something all coaches that leave for greener pastures do.
the whole thing reminds me of a famous scene in a lil' flick called 'Deliverance'. Bielema is the hillbilly and UW (more specifically Alvarez) is Ned Beatty.............hopefully he used some vaseline

BREAKING: Wisconsin has interviewed Utah State Coach Gary Andersen for coaching job. Went 11-2 at USU.
Two sources have told Wisconsin State Journal that Utah State coach Gary Anderson has emerged as top candidate for #Badgers job. Story soon.

LOL Wisconsin is failing:
4-7 at Southern Utah
26-24 at Utah St
35,600 posts and counting since 09-09-2002. tRCMB Dead Pool Commissioner.
yeah, I gotta tell you that's........underwhelming to say the least: shoulda paid fat boy
And zero ties to the Midwest, not even close.
except he clearly outcoached Brett in Madison last September.
By blowing a 14-0 lead? Wisconsin has gone so far down their coaching list that they want to hire a guy that blew a 2TD lead and gave up 16 straight points in a losing effort to the Badgers
It is your own fault if you believed any of the Petersen rumors.
"Put your mother in a straight-jacket you punk ass white boy." ~ Mike Tyson
This is embarrasing for Wisconsin and embarrasing for the Big Ten. Your Rose Bowl team for 3 years in a row is not able to get a viable candidate to replace your program.
If I was a cheesehead and/or UW fan I'd have to wonder a little bit about Alvarez's handling of the whole thing: seems a little bizarrre.
Yep....Now that he is seriously considering coaching next season so he has an entire year to find a better replacement is laughable.
@footballscoop says Wisconsin's convo w/ Gary Andersen was "basic contact" and #Badgers' search have "moved on."
#Badgers set to hire Utah State's Gary Andersen. Source confirms he's the choice.
^^^^^^^ Badger guy for Wisconsin State Journal 20 minutes ago
So it looks like someone is wrong....
