I was thinking this needs its own thread.

Barry Alvarez has announced his retirement at the end of June or so.

Big shoes to fill here, and an anti-athletics chancellor will make the final choice.

Really hope Tommy Thompson gets involved in this one.

How retired is he going to be?

What a great ambassador for Wisconsin he has been.

My guess is he will be down here a whole lot more. He's got a place in Naples.

Isn't he trying to shoe-horn in his No. 2, which might not be a good idea?

Also, I've not thought much about the current chancellor, but her attempts to sidestep public record requirements put her on my shit list.

speaking of Lincoln.............

STEVEN M. SIPPLE Lincoln Journal Star

Things I know, and things I think I know: 

Wisconsin athletic director Barry Alvarez speaks with pride about his Nebraska football roots.

He talks of his deep respect for Bob Devaney and the former Nebraska head coach's rugged style of play. Alvarez played linebacker for Devaney during the mid-1960s. Then, as a high school coach, including a stint as head coach at Lexington High School (1974-75), Alvarez used the sophisticated strength and conditioning program that started at NU under Devaney.
