Evan, the story that came out yesterday is that the players asked Barry to coach the Rose Bowl. It seems like Barry still has respect from the players. Would you see him making some phone calls to some recruits to reassure them and answer any questions they have? I know the coaches are doing the best they can, but wouldn't a call from the top be even better?

Wow i consider myself to be up on most everything college football related, but I have never heard anything about his son. That is too bad.
As far as Chryst goes I am going to say things that may not fit to the norm here. I think hiring him will offer the best immediate snap to fit situation. Short term we should be able weather the storm that is upon us. At the same time (and as i said when he left for Pitt) I am not convinced he is the long term solution. Maybe that has changed slightly with a year of experience, but what really can one take away from a 6-6 season at Pitt? I know a lot of us are looking at our immediate needs, but I see this as an opportunity keep trending next level. Talent in the state seems to be improving and our brand is higher than it ever has been. As a fan I still realistic on our limitations, but also think that we are too pesimistic on our ceiling. I am outing myself as a one of those fans that think this situation may eventually put us in a better spot than we where in.
I was clowning on Chryst after the 1st two losses, but the truth is his team had very little talent (outside Ray Graham) and played really well/hard throughout most of the season... Should have beat Notre Dame.
dustelli, I totally agree with you I think it is time for us to move past Chryst and make a play for somebody bigger named. There have been times that Badger fans have complained when he was our OC so let make a big splash I like the DC from ND, CP as Wisky lets up the ante I love our school and with the right coach we can win and recruit with the best of school. On Wisconsin!!
I feel like I'm kind of on my own with this, but I really like Mel Tucker. He's a UW guy, brings an NFL pedigree and most importantly was a downright nasty recruiter at LSU and OSU.
Evan, you keep saying they are going to "make a run" or "pursue" Chryst. Any ideas or hints when this might take place, if he is the first choice you think early next week?
