The Wisconsin board is reporting that Chris Petersen will definitely interview with Wisconsin.
Does anyone know when this is going down?

I'm sure you're just trolling, but recent posts say otherwise.
If God dwells inside us, like some people say, I sure hope He likes enchiladas, because that's what He's getting

Was referring to article linked.
I can't read the VIP comments so if it was debunked in one of those, I apologize.
Chris Petersen (HC- Boise State): It has been confirmed through a number of media outlets that Chris Petersen will in fact interview with Wisconsin AD Barry Alvarez on Monday.
The rumors continue to swirl regarding the University of Wisconsin and their current football coaching search. Who will be the next head football coach of the Badgers?

Fans are dumb. At all schools at all times. It just comes out more with coaching searches.

BUCKNUTS 21 self trolling.
So is this happening today or not?
would like to know also
3 time POTW, member since 2006, MLWTI: 4-3
Here's the deal.
It got reported by one radio station and one radio station only that Petersen was interviewing today. ESPN1070, which employs Matt LePay and Mike Lucas. Coincidently, they also happen to be employees of the Athletic department.
This goes two ways.
1. The interview is happening, but I bet you won't hear about it for a while if it goes well. Barry is well aware of the crap that went down at Tennessee and isn't about to allow this to be a circus show.
2. It's a smokescreen put up by Barry to allow the "real targets" to remain behind cover while they get interviewed.
I vote number 2. I'm not letting myself get excited by this for no reason. I will say Wisconsin comes out looking much better if Petersen gets hired and actually will give Urban some competition in the Big 10.
Of course, rigt when I post that, an Idaho radio station confirms he's interviewing today.
Like Michigan isn't going to provide competition for them already?
One 8-4 season, with a RichRod centric team that includes a terrible OL and lackluster DL means Michigan is on the down again?
Did they say what time it was happening?
For our division. Still though, Michigan needs to be back in the championship game for me to believe they're back. JMO
I hope Wisconsin can make this happen. Biggest thing holding the BIG back is the lack of depth at the HC spot.
Urban, Hoke, O'Brien ... then what? Pelini? O'Brien is in a real tough situation for the coming years, but I really like him as a coach so far.

Time and change will surely (truly) show
How firm thy friendship ... OHIO!
Update: TOS boards say that CP and family will fly in tonight, have dinner wth Barry and interview tomorrow.
I would be very happy if I was a fan of Wisconsin and this turns out to be true.
Yup. CP > Douchebag Bret
I accept your apology.
Fair enough. I'm far from saying Michigan is "back" but I do think they are heading in the right direction. Anyone who wasn't a total homer, or didn't have their head up their ass coming into the season saw we were going to have a tough go of it.
8-4, or 9-3 was my prediction for this year and it was right on the money.
Petersen would be a hell of a coup for Wiscy and IMO just fits in with their culture pretty well. It would also be awesome to see another top flight coach join the B1G.
Agreed, make everything out of this Bart mess a whole lot better. Still stings we lost Alex Collins when Bert flew the coop though.
Peterson must really like the underdog role, all the big openings that I'm sure wanted him and Wiscy is the one who gets an interview
@BSUDave: Boise State AD Coyle said Petersen has not informed him that he'll interview elsewhere. He is in Boise not Madison
More and more this goes on, the more I don't believe it's going to happen. Just a circus show evertime anyone hints at interest in Chris Peterson. Report about the Idaho radio station was actually the radio station reporting what the Madison radio station had claimed.
If he's flying in tonight and interviewing tomorrow it would make perfect sense that he's still in Boise right now.
Agree though. Don't think's its happening.
