Barry Alvarez is not only one of the best NCAA Athletic Directors, but for 15 years he coached the UW-Madison Football Team to unprecedented heights. In a 7-year span, he led the team to three Rose Bowl Championships, including back to back titles in the late 1990s, the first time a Big Ten Coach's Teams had ever done that. Also, though Alan Ameche had won a Heisman Trophy for UW similarly in the 1950s, when Ron Dayne won his for UW at the close of the 1999 Season, he'd amassed more rushing yards in his career than any other college running back ever, one reason he has been elected to the College Football Hall of Fame. The Great Dayne's record still stands, and Barry Alvarez has had a lot to do with all the success stories of UW Athletics in recent decades. It's no wonder he too was elected to the College Football Hall of Fame. Photo by David Joseph Marcou.
