Next, Gary Andersen took off for Oregon State after last season. But Wisconsin A.D. Barry Alvarez turned to a native son this time, tabbing Madison denizen, former Badger player and assistant and Wisconsin grad Paul Chryst for the post.

A series that covers the true revolutionaries, Game Changers explores how innovators from Big Ten universities — students, faculty and alums — are inventing or reinventing their chosen fields. Rhythm, flow and timing are important whether you’re slinging punches or verses, as Penn State alum and “Warrior Poet” Cameron Conaway can attest.
