Meh, they had to poach a QB last year and only went 7-5 in an extremely weak B1G this season. He was 2-4 in bowl games and is such an ass that most of his talented assistants had abandoned him. His recruiting class last year was subpar, as evident from the whiny comments he made after Urban Meyer stole one of his recruits. My opinion is more based on how I would have expected his Wisconsin team to perform on the field over the next few years than how they have performed in the past...
Edit: regarding Alvarez, he had to lay the foundation for the football program at Wisconsin, so of course his overall W-L record is worse than Bielema's, who was riding his coattails. Alvarez was 8-3 in bowl games and actually *won* all three of his Rose Bowl appearances.
"On-base percentage is great if you can score runs and do something with that on-base percentage," Baker said. "Clogging up the bases isn't that great to me."
