All-Alvarez Team

Late during the 2005 season, as the head coaching career of Wisconsin's Barry Alvarez was winding down, the Capital Times set out to choose an All-Alvarez Team. Ballots were sent out to more than 50 prospective voters, selected to represent a wide range of eras, position groups, experience with and perspective on the program.

Voters could choose from an inclusive list of candidates at each position, with a set limit of selections (one tailback, two receivers, three linebackers, etc.) representative of a traditional football lineup. In addition, the ballot included a line for write-ins at every position.

To account for an overload of top-notch players at any one position, a wildcard category (in which two additional players could be named to the team) was created. Ballots were tabulated by Capital Times reporter Jim Polzin, who brainstormed the All-Alvarez Team.
