Blast from the past

Throwback unis, I get. But a throwback coach?

Set the Wayback Machine for, I don't know, the 1990s, because here comes a little nostalgia for your New Year's menu: Hall of Fame coach and current Wisky athletic director Barry Alvarez will step back onto Wisconsin's sideline to coach the Badgers in the Rose Bowl.

Bret Bielema would have coached the team, but he can't on account of the fact that he's going off to coach Arkansas instead. And so .... bring back the days of yore.

I fully expect this guy to make an appearance, at some point.
