Brett Bielema to Arkansas?

This is the heavy, heavy rumor right now. I know next to nothing about this guy, but my initial reaction is pretty meh.

8-5 in the B1G?

Folks that follow the B1G, tell me something about him... hopefully something encouraging.

All the reports I see are saying this is a sure thing now. He's going. End of story.

Dunno if any of them are reputable, but there you have it.

I liked Bielema for years when expectations for Wisconsin football were low, and the only thing that mattered was producing a great offensive line and maybe upsetting Penn State or a school like that. Also beating the living snot out of Minnesota.

Since their recent successes, Bielema has shown he's not what the team needs to compete. They need a coach who isn't so conservative and one who can actually recruit talented defensive players. No, JJ Watt doesn't count. He came into Wisconsin's program as a goddamn reserve TE/OG. They lucked into him.

If he goes there, Bielema will make Arkansas very competitive. He's a hell of an offensive line coach, and I've never seen a Wisconsin team that can't run the ball well. However, Arkansas's recent history of star QB recruits could dry up. I have no clue what it is, but the guy has been here for years and can't get anybody decent to play for him when he's not falling ass over tea kettle into Russell Wilson. Scott Tolzien is his biggest success at QB since coming here, which is a bit of a problem to me. Even Minnesota has had better QBs than that. Hell, Iowa too.

I'm just kind of meh on him. I know we'll never do any better than the occasional Rose Bowl with him as coach, but I'm kind of fine with that. I don't think Wisconsin is a school capable of finding the next great college head coach who will lead the program to greatness.

Arkansas treats football as a far more serious thing than Wisconsin does, though. So who knows. He might be just what you guys need. It could be a good fit. At the very worst, you'll field a bunch of teams whose only skill is running the ball. That's not necessarily a bad thing, though, especially in the SEC.
It's just a really unsexy hire after the names that were getting thrown around. And yeah, we've become accustomed to high powered offenses around here, so I'm not sure how returning to a drab run-based offense is going to sit with the fan base.

Wisconsin rarely has to play an elite defensive team like Alabama, LSU, or any others. When they do, the game slows WAAAY down.

Again, though, that may be a good thing for Arkansas. Not what they're used to, but a welcome change nonetheless.

Yeah. This is going to really hurt Jeff Long. He already had a large group of haters due to the Petrino situation (they still say we should have found a way to keep Bobby), then made even more enemies with the way this season played out. I'm afraid this hire is going to really hurt him. People were thinking Gundy, Peterson, and Patterson were likely. I don't think this hire has the same appeal.

FWIW, Gary Patterson cut his teeth in the same "school" as Bielema did. He's obviously changed his offensive philosophy since coming to TCU but who knows how long that lasts now that he's coaching in a BCS conference.

Yeah hiring a guy who's won the B1G the last 3 seasons is an awful hire. The Arkansas fan base is a bunch of cry baby bitches.

3 straight Rose Bowls. Say what you want about the B1G, but this is an accomplishment.
