08:12 AM ET 12.06 | When in doubt, call in a legend. University of Wisconsin athletic director Barry Alvarez will coach the football team in the Rose Bowl, the State Journal has confirmed. A source close to the UW football program said the team's captains reached out to Alvarez and asked him to coach the team. ... Another source close to the UW Athletic Department said Alvarez has been in contact with Boise State coach Chris Petersen and an interview could happen as early as Monday. Both UW sources spoke on the condition of anonymity, because they have not been cleared to speak publicly on these issues. Petersen, 47, is the winningest active coach at the Football Bowl Subdivision level, with an 83-8 record (.912 winning percentage) over seven seasons.

Hey now, I know in parts of SE Okla and in Arky sasquatch lives dang it!!!

As for Peterson???
IDK, maybe that is close enough to where he lives now he may think about it... low pressure, no one in the B1G will be able to stop his offense, and the B1G is in such disarray he could win win win.....

Good luck to Wisky.....signing Petersen is about as elusive as finding big foot.

FWIW, I've seen 2 'squatches between Mena and Broken Bow....one was homecoming queen there

Petersen should be on more school's radar

He has been for several years now. Those schools just haven't been on his radar. Can't see this one either...not sure he can get those Cali recruits to Madison.

Same with Patterson.

Here's a question for you brilliant FN posters:

What do Patterson, Petersen, and Bielema have in common regarding their route to their first head coaching position in CFB?

None of them got caught with a young intern on the back of a motorcycle?

No. No. No. Members of my family have moved away from Madison. My SIL lives in Boise. If and when I visit her in the Fall,* I want to be able to see Petersen's team.

*The wife only wants to go to Idaho in high summer... :-(
