I hope that gave you the jolt you needed to help get you through the day.
You are reading this correctly, now-former Wisconsin Head Coach Bret Bielema is reportedly leaving Wisconsin to become the next Head Coach of Arkansas’ football.
This comes as a shock to pretty much everyone involved, as the search for the next Razorbacks coach didn’t seem to have Bielema even on the radar.
Obviously, it’s a bittersweet sight for us Spartan fans. On one hand, we hate Bret Bielema and everything he does. On the other hand, it is always nice to see him screw up late in games and the fact that MSU tends to beat him consistently (it’s fun to watch).
Also, we’ll miss this.
This is also a very weird way for him to go out, after a crushing 70-31 Big Ten Championship victory and a third straight Rose Bowl berth. Maybe he doesn’t want to be the coach of a team getting obliterated in a BCS Bowl game.
In recent years, Bielema has started recruiting a lot of players from SEC country, so maybe it’s crazy to see but it just might work.
