Default Arkansas hires Brett Bielema

Went 68-24 in 7 seasons at Wisconsin and led the Badgers to 3 consecutive Rose Bowl Appearances. It is unknown if he will coach the team in the Rose Bowl next month.

I would say no. I would have liked to say he's running from Meyer, but it's sort of an "out of the frying pan and into the fire" situation with Miles and Saban. I hope he dominates the SEC, but I don't see it.

I seriously doubt it.

It makes me wonder if he was going to be on the hot seat if he lost his third consecutive Rose Bowl.

remember he was hand picked by "the man" barry alvarez...i doubt his job was in jeopardy...it was a small raise, but winning in the sec is the ultimate test of cfb coaching right now. dunno why he would give up a solid gig at wisky though.

won't miss his fat head either way

Would Wisconsin be willing to walk the tightrope of hiring him? That's extremely thin ice to put your program on.

He can see the writing on the wall. At Arkansas he will be able to reqruit better players than he could at Wiscy and he won't have to contend with Urban and his ability to monopolize reqruiting in that region. After going undefeated in a sanctioned year some of the top talent in the country will be flocking to C-bus.
He will have to contend with the other SEC schools and coaches but believe me Bielema will be able to land some studs in "Pig Suey" nation.
He's a good coach and I am glad to see him move to a conference other than the Big Ten.

No, because he's still under the show cause penalty.

In terms of recognition and prestige, probably about equal. I'd say that the pay raise was likely nice. But, at Arkansas, Bielema will finally get to be his "own man" and run the program as he wants to. At Wiconsin, he was always to be thought of as "Alverez' boy", there was virtually no change in style of play or type of players recruited since Bielema took over as HC.

At Arkansas, he will likely have better recruiting inroads to national caliber athletes, and more of a real opportunity to compete for a NC.

Its pretty clear as to why he left.....

Urban Meyer and his Ohio State Buckeyes.

He knew that Urban was going to run the table in the Big Ten year in and year out. The only reason he is going to the Rose Bowl this year is because OSU is ineligable for the bowl.

Arkansas being in the SEC is probably a big pull for him as well. SEC is the best football in the nation and to prove you are a good coach, you need to go and win in the SEC. I think he is a good coach. It may take him a couple years but I think he will have Arkansas up and running in the top 10 before all is said and done. He is known for his ground and pound rushing attack and his strong defense (Nick Saban type). He will also be able to recruit who he wants and not get held back by school and Big Ten standards. SEC doesnt have near the recruiting standards that a lot of the other conferences have.

This doesn't make much sense. He didn't want to be behind someone that would win the Big 10 year in and year out so he went somewhere that would be behind at least 6 other teams on a consistent basis? Arkansas can't pull the talent that LSU, Alabama, Florida, Texas A&M and UGA can. Arkansas needed a coach that can out scheme the rest of the conference and come up with a better gameplan. Bielema isn't that guy.

No problem. The interesting thing is that no coach, who was slapped with the penalty, has coached afterwards. Although, I feel Tressel will break that streak.

As much of an OSU fan as I am, I have to call B.S. on this..

Bielema isn't afraid of any other coach or team. He will bring his own style, rather than being forced to emulate Alverez' style, to Arkansas. Arkansas has good recruiting pull, give Bielema a season, he will have them competitive again.

Your point about Alvarez's control over Wiscy's program is a good one. I was thinking to myself who might he hire as HC? Then I thought to myself that he may come out of retirement to coach the team like Bill Snyder.
Then I got on ESPN's website and seen that he is planning on coaching Wiscy in the Rose and I chuckled.
Wonder if he promotes from within again or gets the itch and comes out to do it himself for a couple of more years?

I don't see Tress wanting to come back, let alone having a team want to take a chance on the show-cause penalty. People don't lose their dream job and then go somewhere else. How many presidents lost a second term and became senators? He's happy doing what he's doing. The only time I could see him coaching again is after Urban leaves, and he comes back to OSU (a la Grover Cleveland, keeping with the metaphor), and it would have to happen in the next ten years or not at all, I think.

Bielema said he left because he was tired of having his assitants lured away. He was offered a bigger budget for his assistants at Arkansas. I hope he dominates. Maybe that will stop all of the "SEC is the dominant conference" talk. They have a nice streak going, but I don't buy that they are as tough as the polls want us to think.

I get tired of listening to all of the SEC crap myself. The conference is good but it isn't as dominant as most SEC fans feel and believe that it is.
I will give a quick example of how it is the SEC manages to keep such high rankings even after they lose a game. When Bama played MIss State the Bulldogs were ranked #4 in the country.Now mind you they hadn't beaten anyone at that point and Bama took it to them, as they should have. It made it look like, "Bama just beat the #4 team in the country!!...OMG!! Wow they must be GREAT!!"...In reality they beat an average at best football team but since the heads have the SEC so high on a pedestal it looks better when the heads start crunching the numbers at seasons end.Bama gets beat at HOME by the #15 team and yet they still manage to get in the NC game! It's a load of crap is what it is and it happens every year with the SEC.
On a side note, I noticed you're from P-cola. I live near Destin myself, cool to have another member down here.

How would him dominating at an SEC school stop the SEC is dominance talk? I assume you mean that by coming from out of the SEC that will prove something, but Saban and Miles both came out of conference as well. The only thing that will stop the talk is other conferences doing something about.

Dominating the SEC after being a slightly above average B1G coach would make it seem that winning in the SEC is easier than winning in the B1G. And your second point is why I will be rooting for Notre Dame.

Unless he gets magically better at recruiting that probably isn't going to happen anytime soon. I guess Arkansas could start producing more prep talent, but that probably isn't going to happen either.

Yeah, M.Ball,K.Zeitler,G.Carami,R.Wilson....yeah those guys stink! He's just terrible at reqruiting (roll eyes)! Arkansas and the surrounding area of Texas,Oklahoma,Louisiana, and Mississippi is loaded with talent.
Arkansas has never had a problem drawing talent.They were just in a BCS game the Sugar bowl 2 years ago. When Arkansas has a GOOD coach they always reqruit well!
