"This terrible situation at Michigan State presents us with an opportunity to make sure we have our own house in order, and to make corrections or changes as needed," said Barry Alvarez, the university's athletic director. "We are treating this with the seriousness that it deserves, and I am determined that something of this magnitude will not happen at UW-Madison."
"Once the game starts you're into the game. It's not about you and the person," Alvarez said. "You try to possibly think like that person in preparation - put yourself in their situation behind the scenes on how they think, how they game plan and whatever you could pull from that to help you design your own game plan."
