    Re: Brett B to Arkansas?

    As for the hire, stylistically it's a solid fit with Wisky playing smashmouth get after you FB. He's not a bad coach, time will tell how good. I also suspect he isn't so dumb as to bring a bunch of people here to recruit areas they're not familiar with. I suspect he'll bring 1-to-3 coaches with him, perhaps a coordinator, and fill in the rest with people familiar with the landscape in the southeast.

    I'm sure people were saying similar things about Coach Saban when LSU hired him. Either you can coach or you can't, period. Sometimes it's just not a good fit, but that doesn't appear to be the case.

    You're assuming he'll eventually have a commit worth flipping.

    You're assuming the likes of Spurrier and others won't do it just out of principle.

    Ha, you're right, Spurrier would do that just to screw with him.

    Re: Brett B to Arkansas?

    The million dollar question is... can he deal with recruiting. I guarentee LSU, Tennenesse, and Mizzou are going to hit that state hard. Its going to take 2-3 years to get that team the way he wants it.

    Early reaction to us from fans on Bret Bielema ... Arkansas fans not that fired up, Wisconsin fans sort of mad but sort of indifferent.

    You are forgetting Texas A&M. They've just solidified themselves as one of the top 3 teams in the SEC West.

    Re: Brett B to Arkansas?

    Guess I'm the only one who thinks that this is a really good hire on Arkansas' part? Bielema has been successful at Wisconsin, and his teams have been consistently good. Hard to argue with three Rose Bowl's in a row (even though this year's was admittedly a bit of a fluke). I would be ecstatic if I was an Arkansas fan, and as an Alabama one, I don't relish having to face his style of offense regularly. I just can't really understand why he left Wisconsin to take over Arkansas in its current state. Good paycheck, I suppose.

    Looks at who he's been playing - the three Rose Bowls look a lot better from a distance. Read the article above - it'll make it clear.

    He may turn out to be a good hire, but I see this as being a FANTASTIC hire for Alabama fans.

    It's not even Bowl Season, and the B1G is already losing to The SEC

    Re: Arkansas hires Wisconsin HC Bret Bielema

    By the looks of the comments from a Madison, WI tv station site, their fans are glad he's gone:
