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.

And Boring headlines as in a safe hire for the university. This guy isn't going to have an affair with a 25 year old and peel of with her on his bike.

You've got to understand they have more responsibilities to think of than W-L's with this hire. They should get both with this guy. It's a "safe" hire in more ways than one is what I'm trying to say.

In Nebraska Barry Alvarez is a legend when it comes to tough guys & flat out badass mother ****er. Who took shit from no one on or off the field.

Man I would loved to have been the fly on the wall when this went down.

Granted they won their conference, but stating they made the rosebowl because they are one of the best teams is false.. They were the best team in the B10, sans this year..

Bielema definitely gets the rep for being conservative because his teams play power football... but he certainly is not afraid to run up the score. If you lay down he's not afraid to drop 70 or 80 on you. There are a lot of "aggressive" coaches that have never scored as many points as those Wisconsin teams.

I wonder if this will hurt Arkansas' recruiting, especially in the South. TX is a pretty big resource for Arkansas and I doubt Bielema has any pipelines down there.

I'm bummed about this hire. Yes, Bielema did a nice job with WI but Big 10 is a weak conference as it is and Bielema will have to raise his level of recruiting and execution if he wants to compete in the SEC. He won't get by with 3 yards and a cloud of dust running game, especially with talented schools like 'Bama, LSU, Auburn and now TX A&M just in the SECW.

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) — Bret Bielema is taking his brand of power football to Arkansas, leaving Wisconsin after seven seasons.

Arkansas released a statement Tuesday night saying Bielema has agreed to a deal to take over the program reeling following the firing of former coach Bobby Petrino.

A person familiar with the situation, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because the information hasn’t been released publicly, says the deal is for six years and $3.2 million annually.

Bielema, Barry Alvarez’s hand-picked successor at Wisconsin, was 68-24 with the Badgers, with four double-digit win seasons. He coached Wisconsin to a 17-14 victory over Arkansas in his first season at the Capital One Bowl.

Arkansas struggled to find its identity in the SEC after leaving the former Southwest Conference in 1992, but it appeared to have finally found just that under Petrino, who was hired after leaving the Atlanta Falcons during the season in 2007.

The Razorbacks turned into an offensive powerhouse under Petrino, leading the league in scoring and total offense last season. After winning 10 games and reaching the school’s first BCS bowl game in 2010, losing to Ohio State, Arkansas won 11 games in 2011, capped by a Cotton Bowl win over Kansas State.

Still, Arkansas has yet to win the SEC, losing in the conference championship game three times.

While the country watched closely to see how Arkansas would react following Petrino’s dismissal, Smith made headlines of his own throughout the season. The former Michigan State and Louisville coach filed for bankruptcy during the season, revealing $40.7 million in debt he blamed on bad land deals.

He was under far more fire from Arkansas fans for the mounting losses and it will be up to Bielema to turn things around in the loaded SEC West, with Alabama, LSU and now Texas A&M.

Long said during the season that the new coach would be tasked with building on the recent success at the school, which is looking into expanding the 72,000-seat Razorback Stadium and is currently building an 80,000-square-foot football operations center.

‘‘The infrastructure in place at Arkansas shows the commitment from the administration to accomplish our goals together and I am excited to begin to lead this group of student-athletes,’’ Bielema said. ‘‘This program will represent the state of Arkansas in a way Razorback fans everywhere will be proud of.’

‘‘His tough, aggressive style of play has been successful and will be appealing to student-athletes and Razorback fans,’’ Arkansas athletic director Jeff Long said in a statement. ‘‘He not only shares the vision and values for the future of Arkansas football, he embraces them.’’

Bielema is leaving the Big Ten for the SEC and a Razorbacks program that opened the year with hopes of challenging for a national championship only to get mired in the Petrino scandal before stumbling to a 4-8 finish.

The move was the second stunning hire this year at Arkansas, which brought in John L. Smith as the interim coach after firing Petrino for hiring his mistress to work in the athletic department. Long announced after the season that Smith wouldn’t return.

Bielema seems likely to bring a far different approach than what the Razorbacks have become accustomed to. Arkansas continually ranked among the Southeastern Conference’s best passing teams under Petrino while Bielema is known for his dominant offensive lines and slew of running backs.

‘‘During my conversation with Jeff (Long), he described the characteristics for the perfect fit to lead this program,’’ Bielema said in a statement. ‘‘It was evident we share the same mission, principles and goals.’’

Wisconsin running back Montee Ball tied Barry Sanders’ long-standing single-season record of 39 touchdowns last year, and this year became the FBS career leader in touchdowns. He currently has 82 touchdowns after running for three Saturday night in the Big Ten title game against Nebraska — a 70-31 romp that secured the Badgers third straight trip to the Rose Bowl, where they will play Stanford on Jan. 1.

The 42-year-old Bielema was the defensive coordinator at Wisconsin for two years before being promoted to head coach in 2006. He played for Iowa and started his coaching career there as an assistant under Hayden Fry and later Kirk Ferentz.

‘‘I was very surprised when Bret told me he was taking the offer from Arkansas,’’ said Alvarez, Wisconsin’s athletic director and former coach. ‘‘He did a great job for us during his seven years as head coach, both on the field and off. I want to thank him for his work and wish him the best at Arkansas.’’

The Illinois native takes over a program still reeling following the April scandal, one eager for stability and leadership.

‘‘I'm excited about this decision,’’ Arkansas cornerback Tevin Mitchel tweeted.

The Razorbacks improved their win total in four straight seasons under Petrino, including a 21-5 mark in 2010-11, and finished last season ranked No. 5. They had talked openly in the spring about competing for the school’s first SEC championship and perhaps a national title.

Then came the April 1 motorcycle accident that led to Petrino’s downfall. The married father of four initially lied about being alone during the wreck, later admitting to riding with his mistress — a former Arkansas volleyball player he had hired to work in the athletic department.

Smith, who had been an assistant the last three seasons at Arkansas under Petrino, was chosen by Long to guide a team that returned first-team All-SEC quarterback Tyler Wilson and a host of other key playmakers. The decision was lauded by the Razorbacks, who welcomed the personable Smith back with open arms.

The season hit the skids with a stunning overtime loss to Louisiana-Monroe on Sept. 8, starting a four-game losing streak that dropped Arkansas out of the rankings. The Razorbacks finished with the school’s lowest win total since 2005, missing a bowl game for the first time since 2008.

‘‘It’s very difficult for me to believe that is not a bowl-eligible team,’’ LSU coach Les Miles said following the Tigers’ win over the Razorbacks in the season finale. ‘‘Watching the talent there, (it's) very capable.’’

Bielema has recruiting pipelines in TX, as do a lot of the Big 10 teams west of Ohio.

Wisconsin's best DB is from TX. That being said, there aren't a lot of TX kids on the Badgers right now because they've done such a great job of locking down Wisconsin.
