08:16 PM ET 12.11 | One week after Bret Bielema was named the new head coach for the Arkansas Razorbacks he has nailed down the first member of his staff, Chris Ash. Chris Ash has been Bielema's co-defensive coordinator for two years after joining the Badger's staff in 2010 as the defensive backs coach. In Ash's first year a co-defensive coordinator (2011) the Badgers ranked No. 13 in the country in scoring defense averaging 19 points per game and No. 15 in total defense. During the 2012 college football regular season Wisconsin finished No. 13 in total defense and No. 19 in scoring defense. Originally from Ottumwa, Iowa, Ash graduated from Drake then received a masters degree from Iowa State in 2005 in education.

Just based on the Wisky DBs he's coached, I've great respect for Chris Ash. They stuck to Buckeye receivers like tarbabies. Ash also had a hand in the defensive scheme that bottled up Braxton Miller for most of the game. I wish him well at Arkansas.

+1 Harley. They did the best job on B Miller of any opponent including Purdue.

They did a great job containing Miller. The adjustment the Bucks' O needed to make was to throw to the area vacated by the safeties coming down to stop Miller running. A few slants, a TE on the seam, etc would have softened their D, opening some running lanes for Miller and Hyde.

The next time I visit C'bus for a game, I want to sit with the both of you. Talk about game insight...
