    Default Badgers losing their coach to Arkansas??? GDG

    Wow,
    Money drives all.................
    Geez I only make 2.5Million coaching in Wis.
    I can make 4mil. in Ark.
    This IS a serious question................
    Where does the schools get this kind of money to pay that?
    Sorry a rant.
    A Rosebowl bid and he probably won't be there to coach.

    Think again bon. Drive down to your local Wally World and donate more money to us. The Walton's aka Walmart family are all huge donors to Fayetteville and have like 5 buildings, halls, etc named after them. (bentonville headquarters 10 minutes away) Tyson chicken? Yea that too (springdale headquarters 10 mins away) riceland rice? yep in stuttgart. Jerry jones donates millions. And is probably 5-10th largest donor.

    And we are only paying 3.2 it only took couple hundred thousand to lure him to the best conference and best facilities (see donor list if you dispute this. Our new facilities will be finished this year with more upgrades to come) in America. Cost of living is 30% lower in Fayetteville vs Madison. (Report)


    oh and i hear he likes duck hunting. we all know arkansas is the capital of duck hunting.

    I wish Arkansas the best, but the reality is that it's just not a place where anyone will win consistently. Frankly, it hasn't been since Broyles was coach. It's been 20 years since they joined the SEC and they have never won a Championship. The fan base still thinks they are a top tier program, and they are not even close. Don't mean to be blunt, but it's the truth.

    Texas A&M, essentially a Big 12 team, walked into the SEC this year with a 1st year coach and a RS Freshman quarterback and came real real close to running the table. Why? It's the recruiting base. And it's only gonna get better for A&M.

    Arkansas is a nice state and all that, but they just don't have enough talent in the state to compete with the other SEC teams in recruiting. And they have not shown they can really attract the talent out of the deep football states. When they were a member of the old Southwest Conference, they were able to pull a lot of recruits out of Texas due to all the exposure they had in Texas throughout the season.

    There is not a HS kid alive that thinks of Arkansas as a dominant program.

    Why, his old B1G buddies Saban and Miles would've probably upped the ante out of their own pockets just to get him to Fayetteville. Can you say Hogs to slaughter into bratwurst? - try SEC chop-Soooey.

    Malzahn another Arkansan of the hokey-pokey offense and Bielema of the beatdowns of little sisters of the poor and hardly anybody else with half a football pulse on the national level. Man, life in the SEC West just got a whole lot better for them at the top. And that was without even reminding the Arky faithful of Bielema's famous righteousness over what he considered a recruiting affront from Urban Meyer: “We at the Big Ten don’t want to be like the SEC - in any way, shape or form.”

    Welcome, Bret, pretty confident you won't be like some of us in any way shape or form in the win-loss column.

    And maybe he's Jerry's college choice as Cowboys' coach in waiting, bon - looks like a fitting successor to the last I don't know how many they've gone through.

    You really gotta be careful about how high a pedestal you put your method, your accomplishments, your dog on. There's usually someone who's done more, somewhere. And they may have used a different method than you did! Chris Atkinson 2013

    holtz? hatfield? petrino? i think the latter proved you could win at arkansas in modern era. what was texas a&m's record against arkansas in southwest classic before they joined SEC? look at cam newton and auburn thats a&ms future. johnny football is a stud no doubt but after next year hes gone (pro) then what?

    if you are naive to believe stars and recruting ranking means anything then shame on you. Utexas has more 5* and 4* than anyone and cant do jack squat. its all about evaluating talent and applying it to your system. petrino never had a top 25 recruiting class but yet won 21 games in 2 years with his recruits because he could coach them up and see hidden talent instead of "stars".

    bielema did same thing his recruiting ranking averaged 36th and still went to 3 straight rose bowls with multiple double digit win seasons.

    Bret is an arrogant p*ick. His program at UW has not been that stellar. Good riddance and good luck in the SEC.

    Not a huge Bielema fan......Sure he went to 3 straight Rose bowls but hasn't won one yet. Think he was sorta lucky and followed on Barry Alvarez's coat tails. Haven't been impressed with his coaching - not sad that he is leaving! Feel for the seniors who will play their last games at the Rose Bowl now that this has happened.

    happens every year at handful of schools. nothing new. these guys are men they can deal with it. if you feel bad for anyone feel bad for arkansas state. 1 head coach bolts for ole miss after best season in school history next year head coach bolts for auburn after conference title

    heck feel bad for seniors at arkansas petrino flubbed up their whole year and they were legitimate sec west contenders with him. with a clown for a coach calling things cant even get to a bowl
