Wisconsin Question 


Is Stanford now the foil in a Wisconsin cinderella story, with Alvarez potentially coming back to coach?

Don't count on it, but it's possible he could do an "interim" for the RB.

Unless there is new coach in place, yes.

Re: Wisconsin Question 


At Stanford people don't care if Stagg, Leahy or McKay is the Wisconsin coach.

What is Wisconsin anyway? An agricultural college somewhere between Palo Alto and Greenland?

Re: Wisconsin Question 


A university that ranks well above Stanford in research. But a couple spots behind in total patents. And it is Barry

Hah hah hah 


Stanford third in research to Princeton and Williams... Forbes.

Wisconsin Agricultural College ... 17 Nobels... Stanford... 55.

Stanford and Northwestern only schools to graduate 100% of players.

Isn't Eubonics taught at UWAC?

Well, whatever, they have me so...

In seriousness, this is a good thing for everyone.  If you guys were upset for falling off the radar of hype with a 5 loss opponent, this games going to be getting plenty of it now.

Williams?? That's a small LAC in Mass doing little research at all. Maybe you need to get out of Cali more. Or your source sucks.

UW was a founding AAU member along with Stanford.

The source you cheese eating fool 


Forbes. I guess you can't read.

The article was based on "effective" research not "How much milk can a Wisconsin player suck."

Do yourself a favor dummy. Google Shockley, Pauling, Shumway and Richter (not Pat!).

Re: Wisconsin Question 


The report late today was BB, not BA, would coach through RBI. But BB said otherwise in his presser at Arkansas. Who knows. BA holds presser at 10am CT Thursday and will tell all.

Stanford is rated #2 in engineering, UWI #17. Medicine (research), #4 vs #27. Medicine (clinic), #63 vs #12. Business, #1 vs #23. Law, #2 vs #25. Undergrad, #6 vs #41. Education, 4 vs 9. Bio, 1 vs 15. Chem, 4 vs 7. Comp sci, 1 vs 11. Earth sci, 4 vs 15. Math, 2 vs 16. Physics, 1 vs 17. Stats, 1 vs 12. All from US News & World Report for most recent year.

Graduation rate, football, 87% vs 66%. compiled here: stanford.scout.com/2/1183346.html

Whatever. It will be power vs power, and a great game.

Go google yourself.  You can start with John Bardeen, taught Shockley everything he knew. And won twice as many Nobel prizes without becoming a nut case.

Re: Wisconsin Question 


Obviously Stanford is a top institution but Wisconsin is no cow college and has numerous excellent depts. You missed Sociology UW #1, Biochemistry UW # 7, etc.
It offers among the most foreign languages in the world.


In the World Univerity Rankings UW is very solid #19. I'll leave it at that. We are very happy for a public college to be at the level.

Barry announced this morning he will lead the Badgers in the RB. Players are ecstatic.

It's official now, Barry will coach in the Rose Bowl.

Re: The source you cheese eating fool 


'taught Shockley everything he knew'.  

well, that is certainly hyperbole of the highest order.  I've read most of the semiconductor-related papers by Shockley and Bardeen.  and Bardeen's name does not appear as an author on Shockley's book, 'Electrons and holes in semiconductors'.  it is simply not true that Bardeen taught Shockley everything he knew.  in fact, while their Nobel was shared amongst Bardeen, Brattain, and Shockley, Shockley was the lead contributor to the theoretical underpinnings, while Brattain had done much of the creative experimental work.

OTOH, Bardeen's contributions to solid state theory are unsurpassed; BCS theory continues to be the only viable theoretical construct to explain superconductivity (but is still more phenomenological than fundamental).  his upbringing in Madison contributed greatly to his success, but so too did his graduate education at Princeton and Harvard.

and Shockley unquestionably became a nut case.  no denying that one, but I'm at loss how it is relevant to the RB.

Wisconsin has a fine academic tradition.  as do most of the Big Ten schools.  we all understand this.  however, you're the one who brought the metric of total research dollars, as some sort of 'proof' of institutional stature, into the discussion/equation.  

I guess you did so in response to TC's jibe about cows.  but you must understand, TC is having quite a bit of fun provoking you.  suggest you either quit; or dive in fully, and not just dip a pinkie into the water.  (kinda hoping you take the latter path...)

What are the "most foreign languages"? I'm thinking the "click languages" of the Kalahari bushmen...maybe Tatar of Tatarstan....Philippine Tagalog...Plains Indian sign language...Coptic Egyptian. Your turn.

Barry Alvarez... Look him up scholar...

Huckleberries are small, dark and rather insignificant, in the early part of the nineteenth century the word became a synonym for something humble or minor, or a tiny amount.

Well, if his idea of fun is making unclever jabs I'll have to reduce my high respect for Stanford. I mean cows--really. It's Wisconsin. DUH.  I expect better. Make fun of our Governor. Now he's a piece of work but so is Brown. Or better yet--just talk about the game which should be very interesting now.
