From what I've heard, his recruiting isn't the greatest. People don't see him being able to out-recruit other SEC teams.

If this is true, Arkansas is gonna be stuck in mid-tier status for a long time.

I also heard he wanted to get out of the Big 10 before Urban Myer and Brady Hoke start completely dominating the conference.

It's nice when a HC can recruit, but he can hire recruiters that can help to make that a non-factor. It all depends on who he brings in with him.

True, it just depends who he brings on his staff. He will need some people with some ties in that part of the country. If he doesn't, it may take a bit longer to get it going successfully.

hah, good point. This could be more of a money grab also. He is coming off 3 straight Rose Bowls, this is a good time to up his salary.

I have absolutely no problem whatsoever with any coach running up the score on any opponent unless it is a lower division match up.

Bad hire by the Sause! I don't see Bielema getting it done in the SEC. The fan base doesn't have the patience needed to see if he can succeed! He was on the hot seat as soon as he took the job!

He also ran up the score while running the ball. That team dump trucked DL's. What was the RB supposed to do, lie down?

I also think Bielma saw the long line of coaches in the SEC that are still being paid while sitting on their couch and said "Sign me up for that"

He is walking into a program that is in anything but stable condition, a roster full of Petrino style offensive players, and no regional recruiting ties to my knowledge. It seems like that could be at least 2-3 years of work to be competing with lsu, bama, a&m, and maybe even miss st and ole miss sooner than later. Guess we'll find out.
This pretty much sums up my thoughts about Bielema. Thought it was an odd choice when I first heard the news.

Is that some inside scoop? Yea I can see now why he wanted to bail so he could get his teeth knocked in by Bama and LSU every year.

Yep. He's hung 50+ a dozen times since Wisconsin hired him in 06. Put 83 on Indiana and 70 on Northwestern in November two years ago. Bret has beaten poor Indiana by an average of 38 points per game, and one of those games was decided by a field goal.
