Utah State’s Andersen is Wisconsin’s next coach

first_imgUtah State head coach Gary Andersen led the Aggies to an 11-2 record and Idaho Potato Bowl win in 2012, one of the best seasons in school history.Utah State’s Gary Andersen will be the next head coach of the Wisconsin football program, according to an initial report from the Wisconsin State Journal Tuesday night that was later confirmed by several other reports and Utah State players via Twitter. News broke earlier Tuesday that Andersen – who had not previously been linked to UW’s head coaching vacancy – had already interviewed for the job. Andersen is in his fourth year leading the Aggies and is fresh off a 41-15 victory over Toledo in the Idaho Potato Bowl Dec. 15 that improved No. 18 Utah State’s record to 11-2 record on the year.The Salt Lake Tribune later reported that Andersen started informing his players he was heading for Wisconsin Tuesday night. According to the Tribune, Utah State defensive coordinator Dave Aranda and offensive coordinator Matt Wells are both likely to follow Andersen to Madison, but Wells may be a candidate to succeed his boss in Logan. Ironically, Cal reportedly offered Aranda its defensive coordinator spot before he turned it down and UW linebackers coach accepted the position with the Bears. Wells also apparently earned an offer for the offensive coordinator job at N.C. State before Wisconsin offensive coordinator Matt Canada took that job on former UW defensive coordinator Dave Doeren’s staff. Andersen will also pry away second-year defensive line coach Chad Kauha’aha’a – who coached the Aggies’ defensive line from 2009-10 – from Utah to join him with the Badgers, according to multiple reports. Utah State went undefeated (6-0) in the Western Athletic Conference in 2012 and took home the conference title, with the rout of Toledo marking the program’s first bowl win in 19 years. One of the best seasons in Aggies history, it marked the first time in over 50 years that Utah State finished the season ranked in the AP Top 25.Andersen’s name comes as a surprise partially because the 48-year-old has no clear ties to the Big Ten or even the Midwest. He played at Utah in the mid-’80s before serving as the Utes’ defensive coordinator from 2004-2008 and spent a year as the head coach at Southern Utah in 2003.The offense he ran in Logan, Utah, is also a far cry from the Badgers’ run-heavy, pro-style attack as dual-threat quarterback Chuckie Keeton led a spread-type system in 2012.Andersen visited Madison earlier this fall when Utah State nearly pulled off an upset over the Badgers Sept. 15, but the Aggies missed a potential game-winning field goal and allowed UW to escape with a 16-14 win.His only two losses this season came by a combined five points against Wisconsin and BYU. In his four years at Utah State he collected a 26-22 record and was rumored as a candidate for recent openings at Colorado, California and Kentucky.In the four years before he arrived, Utah State won a total of just nine games. The Aggies would made modest improvements in his first two years with back-to-back four-win seasons in 2009 and 2010, before Andersen started turning the program around. In 2011 Utah State finished 7-6 and lost in the Idaho Potato Bowl, the school’s first appearance in a bowl game in 14 years. Athletic Director Barry Alvarez said he had interviewed two candidates Sunday evening, one of them believed to be Jacksonville Jaguars defensive coordinator and former Badger defensive back Mel Tucker. Tucker seemed to have his sights set on a head coaching job in the NFL, but it is not clear if Alvarez ever offered him the job.Many Wisconsin fans were growing anxious as the coaching search lingered on for two weeks with no clear leading candidate after Bret Bielema left the Badgers for the same position at Arkansas Dec. 4. The deadline to apply for Wisconsin’s head coaching job is tomorrow, so Alvarez could make an official announcement on who Bielema’s successor will be very soon. In accordance with state law, the university had to keep the application process open for two weeks.At Utah, Andersen served as defensive coordinator under Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer for a season before spending four more years under current Utes coach Kyle Whittingham. In his final year on Whittingham’s staff in 2008, Andersen helped guide the Utah to an undefeated 13-0 record that included a victory over Alabama in the Sugar Bowl and a No. 2 ranking at season’s end.For more updates on the Wisconsin coaching situation, follow @BHeraldSports on TwitterFollow Ian on Twitterlast_img read more

Why Cue Card became the most popular horse in jumps racing

first_img Since you’re here… Reuse this content When Cue Card landed the Champion Bumper at the Cheltenham Festival in March 2010, the golden seasons among staying chasers that had been dominated by Kauto Star and Denman were beginning to draw to a close.Following on from two of jump racing’s all-time greats was always going to be a difficult role to execute, but Cue Card did so with a flourish. He was, by some way, the most popular chaser of recent seasons, as well as being one of the most talented and durable, and the only disappointment following the news of his well-earned retirement was that Colin Tizzard’s 12-year-old would not get a chance to remove the concluding “P” (for pulled-up) from his form figures after his disappointing run in the Gold Cup at Cheltenham last month. Colin Tizzard Share on Pinterest Show Was this helpful? Cue Card will still be at Sandown on Saturday week on the final day of the jumps season, when he will parade rather than line up one last time in the Oaksey Chase.“He wasn’t working quite as well as he can and we didn’t want to take him to Sandown if we weren’t 100% happy with him,” Joe Tizzard, the trainer’s son and also Cue Card’s jockey during the first four years of his career, said on Tuesday. “We will still take him to Sandown, to celebrate a great career. He has been an incredible horse for us and now he can look forward to a new chapter in his life.”Cue Card retires with nine Grade One wins on his record, stretching from his Bumper win at Cheltenham at odds of 40-1 to the Betfair Ascot Chase in February 2017. But it was not so much his record as the way he went about compiling it that endeared him so thoroughly to racing fans. Cue Card loved to bowl along towards the head of the field, where his usually impeccable jumping would force his opponents to match him, or risk giving up ground that could prove essential in the closing stages.Cue Card had the bounce-back factor too, after a fallow period for much of 2014 and 2015 that followed a pelvic injury and then a wind operation. And at a time when National Hunt racing was increasingly becoming dominated by multimillionaires with many dozens of horses, Jean Bishop and her late husband Bob, who died just days after Cue Card’s memorable defeat of Vautour in the 2015 King George VI Chase at Kempton, were a throwback to a time when winning was not everything.Cue Card’s first win in the Betfair Chase at Haydock, in 2013, summed up his appeal. He was sent off at 9-1 to beat an outstanding field that included previous Grade One chase winners in Silviniaco Conti, Long Run and Bobs Worth, but Tizzard and Cue Card were undaunted and took the race to their rivals in familiar style. Cue Card had the race won two out, and stayed on strongly to win in thrilling fashion by nearly five lengths.Cue Card’s last win came in that Ascot Chase, though a close second place in the same race this year offered hope that he might yet claim a Gold Cup at Cheltenham. It was not to be and he was pulled up before the 12th, but Cue Card may still receive a warmer reception than some of the winners at Sandown next week.“I think his longevity made him stand out,” Bishop said. “Even after his fall [in 2016], he went back to win at Aintree. For a few seasons he was the highest-rated chaser in Britain. Look how hard it is for Gold Cup winners to come back the following season. He might not have won the Gold Cup but he kept coming back.” Share on LinkedIn Read more Hide … we have a small favour to ask.
