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.

Didn't he used to do Erin Andrews? That's a step up from Bobby's bike rides.

Wasn't the earlier heavy, heavy rumor Mike Gundy to Arky?

ULTRA conservative, especially on offense.

Played at Iowa, former assistant at K State.

Yeah. Then the Gundy thing got squashed. People were holding out hope for Petersen, then this dude comes out of the blue. It's picked up way more steam and is being reported on yahoo sports and shit.

Well, for the better part of the last 30 years, it's been run by Barry Alvarez and then Bielema.

They're both former Hawkeye players/assistants.

By the way, it's "Bret". With one T.

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.

I wouldn't say he's ultra conservative. He runs an on old-fashioned style offense but isn't necessarily always conservative.

I remember him beating us (Iowa) in the 4th quarter in 2010 by calling a fake punt well within their own side of the field. Pretty sure he ran the same play in the Rose Bowl that year.

Fake punts are more about risk aversion that aggressive or conservative tendencies.

Wisconson has a run/pass ratio of somewhere around 60/40 under Bielema. That is the very definition of ultra conservative.
