Bret Bielema, Troll King

Arkansas coach Bret Bielema, the philosopher troll king of Twitter, was back at it Thursday, sending the above shot Tim Brewster's way. Brewster, now the tight ends coach at Florida State, has an acrimonious history with Bielema, dating back a Big Ten game between Bielema's Badgers and Brewster's Gophers in 2010.

Up 41-16 late, Bielema called for a two-point conversion after scoring a touchdown. The attempt failed, and Brewster, rightfully outraged, ripped into Bielema in the postgame handshake.

In interviews following the game, Bielema incredulously stated that the conversion was standard operating procedure. "I know Tim wasn't happy with it, but you know what, if I'm down by 25 and it's in the 3rd or 4th quarter, I would call a play knowing that they're probably going to run a two point conversion because that's what the card says."

Brewster was blunt. "He'll have to live with that because it was wrong. Heck, everyone in here knows it and everyone in college football knows it. It was wrong."

So that leads us to Bielema calling out Brewster's bravado yesterday. Why? We're not sure. This is a man that is fond of responding to Twitter hecklers with "Enjoy life alone," so nothing Bret Bielema does on Twitter really makes sense.

Thankfully, Bielema followed up the blast with another tweet, clarifying that he respects FSU, but not Tim Brewster. Basically.

I hope Bama drops 50 on him, as well as everyone else down there. Bert needs to be humbled in a major way. He has done absolutely nothing to act with the cockiness he has.

FSU would trounce Arkansas...better that Bielema tried to 'clear things up'

Tim Brewster was a horrible hire for Minnesota. Horrible. And he was a horrible coach there. Horrible. But hey, some guys aren't cut out for head coaching.
Meanwhile, I feel sorry for the poor folks of Arkansas who actually believe Bielema will do big things there.
I've talked to several of their fans and they have told me that Bielema is one of the best coaches in the country and he just needed to come to a real team in a real conference to prove it.

The delusions of every non Bama/LSU/UFM-coached SEC fan base are absolutely hilarious.

Absolutely correct. I live near Nashville and know people who are fans of just about every team in the SEC. The things I hear on a daily basis are so incredibly hilarious I need to start writing them down for a book or something.

Agreed, Tenn.  Brewster was hired at MN with NO head coaching experience at any level.  He immediately came in all rah, rah, rah and started claiming that MN would reach the Rose Bowl.  He is in a better place now.

Bert sure knows how to alienate people.

Head coaches of D1 college football teams just should not have twitter accounts. (Unless their name is Les Miles or Bo Pelini.)

LMAO. What a jerk.

Get it all out now Bert, once you start flirting with the bottom echelon of the conference I doubt anyone will find you funny.

Now that's just bellyaching. FSU's recent track record against the SEC (read Florida) has been pretty putrid. And no, FSU has not played the SEC anywhere, anyplace, anytime.
Nice try Mike.
