Maybe one of the coordinators from those staffs?

    Re: Rhoads has intrest in coaching Wisconsin?

    Is Wisky moving into Iowa's division with the "B1G" addition of Maryland and Rutgers? It makes sense that the newbies would stay in the same division, meaning someone would have to move. I'd be all for it if I was Wisky.

    I thought Bob Diaco too. Was a Hok, would have that tie I guess. But I think Brian Kelly actually personally did a lot of work with the D this year even though he was kind of an offense guy. He said he was doing this before the season started so I don't think he was just taking credit for his coordinator's work.

    He's an up-and-comer, no doubt. I've seen Dimel's name thrown around a few places for other coaching jobs, or taking over KSU when Snyder retires. He's not that young though, and has been an HC before. Did really well at Wyoming, and then absolutely fell on his face at Houston before rejoining Snyder.

    Pollard comes on around the 23 minute mark. His Wisconsin comments start at around 32 minute mark

    I believe I heard when the new teams were announced that Illinois was going to switch division in 2014.

    So Hok division gets even easier?

    I do believe that is what ESPN reported but not sure the conference confirmed that...wonder why they picked Illinois?

    That's really fascinating, thanks for posting that. I thought it was interesting right off the bat when Pollard said, unprompted, that there is no debate that Bielema was Wisconsin's best coach ever. Given that many Wisconsin fans and CFB fans in general might consider Pollard's old boss as Wisconsin's best ever coach, that strikes me as a pretty direct affront to Alvarez. And then to follow with those comments about people at Wisconsin forgetting who they are and starting to "expect" things...very interesting.

    Re: Rhoads has intrest in coaching Wisconsin?

    Hopefully Pollard's comments have been sinking in for CPR. I think Wisconsin fans expect more than they are going to get with anyone now. Spoiled and trying to compete with Ohio State.

    Why aren't they trying to get KF?

    I don't know that it's an intended shot at Barry, 3 Rose Bowls in 3 years is very impressive. The one spot Barry really has an edge is bowl records 8-3 vs 2-4. His comments make me hope he is here for a very long time. I would hate to see this fanbase turn into the entitled douchebags that seem to surround us on all sides with a little success

    All of these new coaches typically sign a Memo of Understanding that doesn't allow them to job-hop once they agree to become coach of the new school. Usually there is a giant buyout (up to the value of the agreed upon contract) for them leaving prior to signing the official contract. So I'd say its highly unlikely.

    It feels like a pretty direct shot at Barry to me. The question was not a direct, "Who do you think the best Wisconsin coach in history is?" It was a very general, open-ended, what Pollard thought of Bielema leaving type of question. So Pollard starts with the general answer you might expect, then pauses and goes out of his way to say Bielema was Wisconsin's best coach ever. Not only that, but it isn't even a debatable point!

    Pollard didn't need to go that far. He could have said Bielema was one of the best ever and left it alone. But to be that direct felt intentional.

    I'm not getting into whether what Pollard said is true or not; that's for Wisconsin fans to decide. But the fact that he volunteered that opinion and was so direct about it suggests to me that Pollard's relationship with Alvarez and/or Wisconsin has soured.

So if our performance declines in the future do you think a program like UW (if it even is) would hire him based upon his first four years at ISU? Doubt it...he would no longer be a hot commodity. Pitt might go after him in that case since they think fondly of him, but not a program that he has no ties to...can't sell it.
    Wisconsin can't sell it? The coach known around the nation for being "So Proud", the guy known as being one of the most energetic coaches in the country, the guy that is dropping epic post game speeches after knocking off ranked teams year after year, the guy taking Iowa State to bowl games in 3 out of 4 years when most people outside the state of Iowa think ISU is a high school program, a coach that is landing talented recruits and getting them to come to Ames, IA, etc....

    There are plenty of ways to sell a guy like Rhoads to a fan base like UW's. That is the scary part. A guy that can do so much with a smaller budget, lessor facilities, a talent gap against Big XII schools that is certainly not in his favor, etc... A school with a big budget, with better facilities, that is on the plus side of the talent gap, etc... Is a school that says if he can go .500 at ISU there is no limit to what he could do here.

    I am hopeful that CPR will stay but to think that a school he has no ties to wouldn't be interested in him is crazy.
