NEWSLINE: Andersen on UW admission standards

CBS Sports' Dennis Dodd after sitting down with Oregon State coach Gary Andersen in Corvallis writes that Wisconsin's admissions standards pushed Gary Andersen to OSU.

From the article:

"Before Gary Andersen goes on, he wants to make one thing clear. A part of his surprising departure from Wisconsin had to do with admission standards.

"It's been well [documented] there were some kids I couldn't get in school," the Badgers' former coach said. "That was highly frustrating to me. I lost some guys, and I told them I wasn't going to lose them. I think they did what they were supposed to do [academically] and they still couldn't get in. That was really hard to deal with."

You have to read all the way down to the final two paragraphs for this:

Andersen stressed that his departure had nothing to do with Alvarez. The two had a good working relationship.

"He never one time stepped on anybody's toes in the football office," the coach said. "Please don't make Wisconsin sound bad in any way, shape or form. I love those kids. I truly love them."
