What did Mike Markusen do at Wisconsin to get fired?
« on: October 08, 2017, 08:12:43 am »

What could Mike possibly have done that has Kurt Anderson still working here?

From Wiki: Markuson debuted as the offensive line coach for the Wisconsin Badgers in January 2012, but was fired on September 9, 2012 after just two games, including a 107 loss to the Oregon State Beavers.[1][3]

How? I mean really - how?

 I saw on a Wisconsin forum once that it was something off the field he was fired for.

I've never heard of this. I'm pretty sure he got fired because it was a really dumb hire in the first place. Under Bob Bostad, Wisconsin ran three blocking schemes: inside zone, power, and pin and pull. Markuson came in and basically changed it up entirely. Way more outside zone, different pass sets etc.

This is a quote from Travis Frederick that summer, before Markuson was in any danger of getting canned:

Quote
"I think it was a fairly large transition," junior center Travis Frederick said. "He's definitely a different coach. Coach Markuson has a different coaching style.

"We have a new offense. From the outside it probably won't look much different but it's a little bit different for us. I think we definitely hit a few speed bumps in the spring."

When the results were so bad, Bielema just threw in the towel and gave the job to a GA, Bart Miller, almost entirely due to the fact that he just ran the same system that Bostad would have.

I am beginning to think Bert was only a Coach in Name Only at Wisconsin..and Alvarez was actually still the coach running things.  No way can one be this incompetent.. But then again, the guy who hired him and gave him a buyout like this is pretty much 2 Peas in a Pod with Bert.

It's obvious now that Barry was running that team and BB has no clue how to run a football program.

Especially given the fact that Wisky barely dropped a beat since CBB left there.

Can we add to CBB's contract that he has to meet with Barry Alverze 3 times a week going forward?
