Whattttt RT @schadjoe: Arkansas has hired Bret Bielema away from Wisconsin
— Jake Stoneburner (@STONEYeleven) December 4, 2012
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.

Very surprised by this Bret Bielema news. The grass isn't ALWAYS greener.

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.
