Crosby is staying..for now...
Im not sure the Packers are in a position to cut struggling kicker Mason Crosby. Obviously Crosby's accuracy is a lot to be desired and warrants a release. Crosby has a proven track record and his struggles are a major surprise to the organization and fans alike. There isnt much of an alternative at this point of the season.
Im sure Ted Thompson has looked at other "street" kickers but didnt see a better option. Mike McCarthy will just continue to throw his support behind Crosby and hope for the best. Its a shame that this is in the position that the Packers are in but there is not much of a choice at this point of the season. Crosby may have some company at next year's training camp.

Who is Next at Wisconsin?
Other than Boise State's Chris Pederson,there isnt one name that stirs the pot for me on the
Badger coaching hire list. Not Paul Rhoads from Iowa State.. Not Al Golden,who may have moved off the Badger radar anyway. Other than Paul Chryst,there isnt any candidate with the link to Badger football. I dont think Joe Rudolph is ready. I have a feeling that anyone Barry hires,other than Pederson,will not excite many. There isnt a hot shot candidate out there ready to take over a plum job like Wisconsin.

Bielema Was Always Under Scrutiny

Probably no where in the country present or past,can a coach take his team to a BCS Bowl three straight years and be as criticized as much as Bret Bielema was at Wisconsin.. Mike and I,this morning,fielded four hours of calls from listeners. Most saying "good riddance" to the outgoing coach..If three straight Big Ten titles isnt enough ,what must the next man do?

Bielema was filing big shoes replacing Barry Alvarez because of Barry's rep for turning the Badger football program around and for winning all three Rose Bowls he was in. Forgotten with Barry,were numerous disappointing seasons when many times the Badgers were not even in the running for the Big Ten title. But when Barry got to the Rose Bowl,,he made it count. Bielema failed, That's how Bielema was measured by alums and fans.
