Talk about a hire out of left field.
Pretty good hire, but I don't know if he has a much higher ceiling than Houston Nutt in our conference. He should do pretty good, but don't think he makes them as good as or better than LSU-Bama-A&M.
Agree. Wasn't he Alvarez's hand picked successor? Very surprising.
That is a homerun hire if you break it down. Arky just got the Coach from the Big Ten Champion, been to multiple Rose Bowls, power running game with normally very good defense, right now wisky is the top or one of the top 2 Big Ten programs. Got to give it up, yes out of left field but very good none the less.
I just don't get that one at all... That cannot be legit.
Dang... I just don't believe it. He is a Big 10 / Wisconsin guy.. even though he graduated from Iowa.
From Yahoo! Sports: Wisconsin coach Bret Bielema is leaving to take over Arkansas' program.
The Chad to Wisky......jk.........
Goo. Shyatt-level hire by them, IMO.
"You’re either a block-gobbler, a farmer, or you’re a damn hunter and playmaker."
If this is their hire I think it's a FAIL.
“I can tell you this,” Bielema told Hayes. “We at the Big Ten don’t want to be like the SEC—in any way, shape or form.”
All over espn.
Shocker. Didn't see that coming.
Terrible hire by Arky. Nothing homerun about it. Strike out is what it is. Guy has no connections in the southeast, A&M is about to become a juggernaut. Besides Dan Mullen, he will be the worst SEC coach to listen to at Media Days next summer. Maybe Smart to Aubie and Gundy to UT, maybe? Petrino to Okie State maybie, or the Chad?
"Never look down on anyone unless you're helping them up."
"We at the Big Ten don’t want to be like the SEC—in any way, shape or form."

Agree Malzahn to auburn is about as bad.
This guy is running away from Urban Meyer as fast as he can.
Was this there 5th choice. This is far from a home run hire. Great for USC. Big drop from Petrino to BB.

I think it will be a good hire for them.
and head first into Miles and Sabin
Give it they won the B10 championship game this year but I would not consider an 8-5 record top 2 B10 programs! They wouldn't of even been there if there wasn't 2 ineligible teams. Plus you can credit last years sucess to a QB transfer.
Wish they were still going to our rival in the west b/c they are about to drop off IMO.
Making bets and cashing checks
Not quite. He was 3rd in his own division this year behind Ohio St and a depleted Penn St. He backdoored into the Big 10 championship and beat one of the most overrated coaches in Pelini. It was somewhat of a rebuilding year this year for Wis but they still lost like 5 games.
