As a Wisconsin football community, I think we need to get some things straight. Firstly, I admit that I thought it was time for a change in Wisconsin. I think anyone who reads our site knew that was my stance on the whole situation and that it had been for weeks. Many people likely share that same sentiment. On the flip side, there are likely people out there who think this was a mistake and that Wisconsin should have been happy with what they’ve had the last few years. I disagree but to each their own. I respect people's opinions. All that said, and whatever your opinion is, one thing should be universal. Paul Chryst deserves your respect. Paul Chryst gave a lot of his time and life to this Wisconsin football program and what he accomplished should be appreciated. Chryst was born and raised in the state of Wisconsin and played his college ball for the Badgers from 1986 to 1988. Playing quarterback for Wisconsin is something many little kids dream of growing up and doing and Chryst was able to do that and much more. After that, Chryst bounced around the country for other jobs but ultimately returned to Madison to take over as offensive coordinator. During that time Wisconsin football had some incredible seasons and Badger fans likely have a ton of great memories to hold onto from that era.
