With Rose Bowl over, Andersen era begins


Pasadena, CA (WQOW) -- The sting of a third Rose Bowl defeat is still fresh for Wisconsin fans, but the team now begins moving forward.

With the Rose Bowl over, the Gary Andersen era can now begin. Andersen took in a practice leading up to the Rose Bowl, and took in the Rose Bowl game from the sideline. Athletics Director Barry Alvarez says Andersen used the time to evaluate the current roster.

"He had a chance to watch practice this week. Some of his staff were at practice. The advantages are they had a chance to evaluate the players and have an idea in their minds when they get here, what they have. What they have to recruit, the strengths and weaknesses of the team," says Alvarez. "As I told the team, we have a very good nucleus coming back next year, a lot of juniors, and they have a chance to be an outstanding squad again next year."
