That reaffirmed a hunch I’ve had for almost a week: Alvarez identified his No. 1 target while sitting in his hotel room in New York City last week. Scratch that. He probably had his No. 1 target identified before Bielema blindsided him with the news he was leaving for Arkansas.
When asked last week what might happen if he couldn’t get his guy to run the program, Alvarez said without hesitation that he would get his guy.
Hunch: Alvarez has his guy and both sides are waiting for the right time to complete the courting process.
To me, that sounds like Rudolph.
