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.
