Check out the awesome video for Barry Alvarez Day below.

I know I’ve been down and out a bunch this season on the Badgers as we sit at 1-2, but you’ll never hear me be down and out about Alvarez.

Before Barry arrived, Wisconsin sports were a joke. After he arrived, we’re a national power in football and basketball.

Sure, we’re having a bad season right now, but it doesn’t change our status, which we wouldn’t have without Alvarez.

Now, during one of the biggest games of the year, a packed Camp Randall will take a moment to honor the most important man in the history of the Wisconsin Badgers.

Damn, I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t a bit emotional right now.

If for not other reason than Alvarez being in the house, let’s go out and get a win against Michigan!
