Make 'Em Believe - The Inside Story of the Badgers' Road to the 2015 Final Four | Gunslinger | Milwaukee Brewers | Green Bay Packers | Tales From The Wisconsin Badgers Sideline | 100 Things Wisconsin Fans Should Know & Do Before They Die
University of Wisconsin football has enjoyed a renaissance over the past 25 years due in large part to the hiring of Barry Alvarez as head coach in 1990. Alvarez s initial blueprint for rebuilding the abysmal UW program, which had won only six games between 1987- 89, included utilizing walk-ons student-athletes who initially play without an athletic scholarship to bolster his depleted roster. Four short years later the Badgers won their first-ever Rose Bowl by beating UCLA, 21-16, with two former walk-ons serving as team captains.
Walk-On This Way highlights the contributions made by the undersized, underdeveloped and under recruited players that have played a vital role in the success of Wisconsin football s 206 wins and six Rose Bowl appearances since 1990, featuring first person accounts and over 100 interviews with former players and coaches.
Walk-On This Way provides Wisconsin fans with the stories of the unheralded and underappreciated players whose love for the game and sacrifice for the good of the team helped build one of the top football programs in the country.
