A View From The Midwest

The New Horizons Credit Union 1st and 10 Club of Mobile hosted speaker Barry Alvarez, Director of Athletics for the University of Wisconsin, Monday evening at Heron Lakes Country Club. A proposed matchup initiated by ESPN between Alabama and the Big Ten Conference member had supposedly been dismissed due to differences between the two schools.

Nick Saban preferred a neutral site affair as opposed to a home/home series with the Badgers. ‘BAMA Magazine/'BamaMag.com sat down for an interview with the 30 plus year veteran of college athletics to clarify current topics faced by administrators and hear an assessment of the SEC.

Alvarez stated during an additional conversation that talks to reach an agreement for a game against the Crimson Tide in 2015 continue. "I can't announce anything but we're still talking about playing the game. We haven't signed anything but we are in discussion," said the Wisconsin Director of Athletics. The Badgers defeated Alabama in the only meeting held in Madison on November 3, 1928, 15-0.
