    Is that why TAMU and Ole Miss went away from that style and immediately improved? That style only works with superior talent.

    Terrible hire for Arkansas. Texas pipeline is all but over.

    Instant improvement for Arkansas right here. I'm surprised they went for him though.

    Re: Brett B to Arkansas?

    Does anyone know whether the compensation package for the Arkansas job includes a motorcycle, along with a hoochie mama?

    Bret Bielema is gonna get forklift fat.
    What's the over/under on how long it takes Bielema to forget all about his "gentleman's agreement" beliefs and make a visit to see Alton Tenpenny? I'm guessing it won't take him long.

    I'll also be interested to see how his penchant for running up the score goes over in the SEC.

    Assuming, of course, that he has the opportunity to do so...

    I suspect it will be a while before we find out, at least against SEC opponents.

    Wisconsin's Sagarin SOS ranking under CBB:
    2006: 82 record: 12-1
    2007: 57 record: 9-4
    2008: 52 record: 7-6
    2009: 64 record: 10-3
    2010: 66 record: 11-2
    2011: 44 record: 11-3
    2012: 38 record: 8-5

    He dominates when the SOS is worse than 60th (.846) but not so great when playing a SOS higher than 60th (.603).

    Arkansas hires Wisconsin HC Bret Bielema

    I am in Milwaukee this week and the general consensus around my office was good riddance. Comments included:

    He was 4-4 this year, he is lucky to be in the Rose Bowl

    He coasted on what Alvarez left him

    He has never been a very good game coach.
    Amazing how little they know about the SEC up here. One sports reporter said "I'm shocked - the Arkansas job has only been open a week. I might understand that from a fan but you would figure a reporter would keep up with college football. Oh well - it's not the Packers so probably not noteworthy to this bunch.

    Very good point. You have to compare him to other coaches at the school and a wiki search took about 5 seconds to see that he is in the top 90%. 68-24 is pretty good compared to most all the others and he's going to his 3rd straight Rose Bowl?

    Some people see Steve Spurrier as slipping because of his record at SC, but when you look deeper you see that he's doing some of the best coaching of his life.

    Of course the Badgers are going to rip him for bailing, that's human nature. I believe it's a solid hire.

    Definitely did not see this coming. I love watching the coaching carousel...it's always so interesting to see who gets hired. I wonder who Wisky goes after now.

    You can bet he'll go after Tenpenny. I hope we hang on to him, though with the guys we have coming in, I'm not too worried.

    I'm going to take a guess and say Paul Chryst. He was the OC at Wisconsin until he got the head coaching job at Pitt after last season. He might not leave Pitt after just one season, but Todd Graham did.
