Did You Want The Badger Coaching Job?

When Bret Bielama quit his job as the head coach for the Badger football team, many different people wanted his job, including ordinary folk just like us!  The university advertised the job on its human resources website and many dreamers put their applications in.  A website has now shown some of the applicants via public records request from people who did not request anonymity. Among the applications you can find résumés for Utah State coach Gary Andersen, who wound up getting the job.  Other applicants were marginally less qualified. Those include a local Walgreen's pharmacist, a recent college graduate who was the captain of his football team, a veteran FedEx driver, an executive recruiter who played one season of Division III baseball, and a lawyer who listed among his "relevant experience" the fact that he has "excelled in various fantasy baseball and football leagues."  To see the fascinating list of people who applied and the cover letter they submitted, click here!

What Monopoly Piece Would You Kick To The Curb?
