    Hot damn. I know that SEC > Big 10 when it comes to football, but he had it damn good at Wisconsin. What's the motive?

    Money. Bielema is a decent coach, but there are questions.

    1.Dude struggled a lot in big games (namely Rose Bowl)
    2. How good is he really? He had a GREAT staff at Wisconsin during his run (and a lot of that staff was put together by Barry Alvarez). This year he had no Doeren, no Chrust, no Rudolph (Wisconsin's best recruiter) and no Huxtable (Their second best recruiter). The team really struggled.
    3.Bielema doesn't like to recruit
    4. He complained about how Urban recruited at Ohio State this year, he's gonna hate the SEC.

    It is telling that Wisconsin fans are more upset by the timing than him actually leaving.

    Auburn is also about to hire Gus Malzahn. Meaning for the second year in a row, Arkansas State has their coach leave after 1 year.

    Petrino to Idaho... Paul Petrino.

    Also sounds like Darrel Hazel to Purdue

    Bielema to Arkansas is extremely bizarre.

    If he didn't like the way Urban recruits, he's in for a bunch of miserable days in the SEC. He's going to have a hard time selling that style of football to recruits in a conference (division) with LSU and Alabama.

    and as I said, Bielema is not a good recruiter. Doeren and Chryst were. They are now head coaches. Chryst took Huxtable and Rudolph with him and they were good recruiters too.

    Bielema is a defensive guy. Team struggled this year on offense without Chryst. Yes they didn't have Russell Wilson, but they made a Rose Bowl with Scott Tolzien and were a top 10 team with John Stocco. Common theme? Paul Chryst as OC.

    I understand the money aspect, I do. But man, he had it good at Wisconsin. I don't think Arkansas increases his chances to win a National Championship, so money has to be factor numero uno. And maybe the weather.

    I'm aware, thank you.

    It won't be long until an SEC coach flips some Arkansas commit and Bielema pulls his hair out. He's got a lot more than Urban Meyer to worry about 'round these parts.

    Sounds like it's Mahlzan to Auburn. Figured that would happen.

    Under the radar hire: Steve Addazio to BC. That's a good hire, he's a good coach. Looks like Charlie won't be getting away from him when we move to the ACC.

    With the Wisconsin job openning up, Pitt fans better run for their Tums and Malox. They might be searching for a coach...again.

    Meanwhile the Gundy to UT rumors are starting to ramp up.
    Insert pithy saying here.

    So are the Strong to UT rumors. I'm guessing he's the next head coach at UT.

    If he does, he does. With the ACC money we're about to get we'll be jumping from the 16th most profitable athletic department to the top 10. We'll be able to afford just about any coach we want. AD Tom Jurich will just find us another coach and eventually we'll find a coach that wants to be here. Once that happens, look out.
