Sounds like Engram is the favorite. Interested to see what he brings.

Why would Bevell leave the NFL to be an assistant coach in college ball? Don't see that.

While he probably would have liked to be a head coach by now (he was an OC for the Vikings way back in 2007 IIRC), the NFL pays better and has better players. Why step down?

Tolzien seems like a nice fit and a decent opportunity for him. As a guy who had to work harder and rely less on talent, he seems like he could be the kind of person Mertz needs to listen to.
Yeah, I'm not even sure why Bevell was being mentioned by the writers. He doesn't strike me as a guy who'd want to recruit.

I would like to see Scott in Madison again, but not as an OC. A couple of years as a QB-focused analyst would be good.

Analyst? He’s past that now on the career ladder. 

You’d have to make him “QB coach” though what that meant behind the scenes could be flexible.

Yeah, kinda like Melhaff's role with the kickers. That's what I'm thinking, unless they would kick Haering to the curb and let Turner coach ST.

Wisconsin is working to solve its offensive issues.

Iowa is doing nothing to solve its offensive problems. Wisconsin will continue dominating the West.

Twitter alive with news that Badgers are legitimate contenders to land transfer QB Caleb Williams!

That would be pretty cool!

38% of UW fans are more psyched about this than Caleb Williams.  Culver's fans ride hard for them.

What does "serious contender" mean?  I assume what has been a top 15 program for two decades now is a serious contender for a lot of guys.  My guess is this means "favorite", but writers don't want to get burned.  And they know that most readers are too dumb to not be surprised that UW is a "serious contender", so they go with that, to still get clicks, but aren't wrong if he changes his mind.

Williams to UW is not happening. UW could not put together enough NIL money. Boosters raised $350K in two days, but it wasn't enough.

Williams will now focus on a new top choice, now that UW is out.

I know some people are happy with all of this NIL and transfer shit, but here we are. This absolutely sucks. That UW was even in this thing makes me feel kinda dirty.
