Whattttt RT @schadjoe: Arkansas has hired Bret Bielema away from Wisconsin

So, obviously, Bielema coached #B1G title game knowing he was going to Arkansas. I thought that "W" he made with his hands was sincere.

This has been the greatest 3-year run in Wisconsin history. You think there's a clear guy out there who will do better? Good luck.

Bielema is a good fit at Arkansas. He's had to be a better recruiter than everyone else at Wisconsin. Same deal here.

Bret Bielema met his wife at a blackjack table in Vegas. Dude's got some gamble in him.

Huge black eye for the Big Ten after a miserable season. Coach of 3-time champ shouldn't be leaving for a second-rate SEC job.

That Bret Bielema-Les Miles chess match is going to be fun to watch.

The #Badgers have zero kids from Alabama, Arkansas, Mississippi, Louisiana or Georgia currently on their roster. A few from Texas, Florida.

Arkansas has had since April to make a hire and they got Bret Bielema

As I reported the other day, Tennessee reached out to Bielema. Heard rumors about Arkansas. Didn't think he would take either job. Stunned.

Wisconsin's Bret Bielema to Arkansas in a shocker. Could this impact #Purdue's search?

Funny to see people blast 7-5 Wisconsin making this year's Rose Bowl and also credit Bret Bielema for making 3 straight Rose Bowls.

I want to see Bret Bielema battle for recruits. I'm not sure he can. His life just got much more difficult imo.

Bret Bielema to Arkansas? Wow … that's a helluva hire. Too bad Dave Doeren already took the NC State job. Would've been great replacement.
