|Bret Bielema is taking exra steps to minimize the possibility of an Ohio State situation at Wisconsin.|
"I have certain people I can lean on within our athletic department to find out," Bielema said. "They went to the two main parlors … they are assured that everything was [OK] … It's definitely one of those things you want to look into."
"If one of my kids gets a parking ticket, I know it the next day," he said. "We have forms that any vehicle they have, whether it be a car, whether it be a moped, they have to write it down. It's an NCAA compliance issue. That's never been in place anywhere else until I came here. I think there's so many checks and balances to ensure, hopefully, that things can't happen. Now, a kid could do it and we don't know about it. But you see a car sitting in the parking lot, a kid getting out of it, you know what's going on."
"I think that it just makes everyone more alert that if it can happen to those high profile schools -- Michigan had never been on probation; if it can happen to them, it certainly can happen to us," Alvarez said. "I want to make sure that it doesn't."
