Badgers, Wolverines Jump in Coaches' Poll

Big Ten title game champ Wisconsin moved to No. 8 in the latest Coaches’ Poll, released Sunday morning.

One thing is for sure about the next coach, at least in my mind: I don’t think there can be any ties to Penn State or Paterno. Sorry, Tom Bradley. It also would shut the door on Al Golden, a former Penn State tight end and assistant coach who recently signed an extension at the University of Miami.
