Badger news & notes: Good-bye Barry edition
MADISON, Wis. - After losing to the Iowa Hawkeyes, 20-10, Saturday, the Wisconsin Badgers dropped from No. 19 in both polls to No. 15 in the AP poll and No. 24 in the coaches' poll.
Everyone spoke about Alvarez except his family, but their emotions said enough, as tears and smiles ran down and across their faces. Of the speakers, Delany stood out, making appreciative comments about Alvarez's time as one of the Big Ten's best coaches.
Delany said that during the 15 years prior to Alvarez making it to Madison Big Ten teams had trouble defeating Pac 10 opponents.
"Barry had no problems winning in Pasadena," Delany commented and received a roaring response from the Camp Randall crowd.
Despite his rushing woes, Calhoun did set a record Saturday. After his first reception (for 20 yards), Calhoun became the second player in Big Ten history to notch at least 1,000 yards rushing and 500 yards receiving in one season. The first player to accomplish this feat was Iowa's Ronnie Harmon who had 1,166 rushing yards and 699 receiving yards in 1985.
For the first time this season, Calhoun didn't score a touchdown (either on the ground or through the air).
The Badgers finished Saturday's game with 19 total rushing yards.
"Well, it is definitely not how we wanted things to end," senior tight end Owen Daniels. "I know for myself and for the team, this is not the way we wanted to send Coach Alvarez out. I don't know how to describe it."
The Wisconsin Badgers men's basketball team will finish up exhibition play tonight in a 7 p.m. tip-off vs. Lawrene at the Kohl Center.
