Nothing is dead yet, but Wisconsin has reportedly missed on Al Golden, Mike Riley, and Paul Rhoads. So where does Barry Alvarez go from here?
There's still plenty of names on Wisconsin's list with ties to the program, but can the Badgers afford to wait for an NFL coach or reach down the list for a former Badger?
Alvarez has gone on record saying Paul Chryst will not be the next head coach at Wisconsin, however there is still some buzz out there about Chyrst and the Badgers. Will Alvarez have a change of heart?
What about Alvarez himself? Could Barry step into the head coaching role even after the Rose Bowl?
