We're still trying to get our head around the fact that Bret Bielema is now the head coach of the Arkansas Razorbacks. His new contract is reportedly a six-year deal, worth $3.2 million annually, which is a raise over the $2.5 million he was paid in Madison.

Barry Alvarez and Wisconsin have released a statement. As have Jeff Long and Arkansas.

As you can imagine, the news sparked a Twitter eruption this afternoon. Here's a look at what the Twitterverse had to say about Bielema's departure.

No, really.
