Barry Alvarez institutes the band system

In the most recent installment of Wisconsin's "Path to Pasadena" the film crew provides a look inside of the bowl suite where players use a point system to pick out their bowl gifts. 

Players had their choice of everything ranging from a La-Z-Boy recliner to Beats by Dre headphones. Pretty solid selection, especially for players making a repeat trip to Pasadena and have already cashed in on the recliner in years past.

At the end of the clip, Alvarez addresses the team and explains the bands that the coaches are wearing that read "I'm In and I'm on". He then explains how players can earn a band of their own.

"Once your committed and can say 'I'm all in coach', and not only that, but 'I'm going to be good in that game". When your coach feels that you're to that point, you'll get a band."

"I don't expect us to go very without everybody having a band."
