Photo: Wisconsin Tweets Picture Of Barry Alvarez And Jon Gruden With Hashtag '#BadgersCoachingRumors'

Wisconsin athletics has been on its Twitter 'A-game' since the shocking news that Gary Andersen was leaving the school for the opening at Oregon State. Soon after the news broke, Wisconsin basketball offered its coach, Bo Ryan, to lead both teams. Today, the football program's account tweeted a picture of athletic director Barry Alvarez, who will coach the team in its bowl game against Auburn, speaking with former Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Jon Gruden, with excellent hashtag use.

At least the Badgers have a sense of humor about the whole thing. Or, this was a genius way of hinting at a hire that would somehow upstage the shocking Mike Riley to Nebraska and Gary Andersen to Oregon State hires. Probably not, but we wouldn't put anything past college football at this point.
