The Quotable Bret Bielema

Bret Bielema, wordsmith.

Grantland gave Bret Bielema the full treatment Friday, giving the former Wisconsin coach a chance to explain his decision to take the Arkansas job a mere 24 hours after telling his team he wasn't going anywhere. Vico broke down the piece in Saturday's Skull Session, but we thought Bielema's colorful quotes deserved another, better life, so here are they are as Bielema Cards™.

Stay frosty Bert.

Or, by the look of things, have another Frosty.

It is summertime and all.

Have a close friend who was like this in college. Those pictures were reserved for day #3 of his drinking though.

I'm going to miss the Bert epics on 11W's roundup of B1G games each Sunday.
Man, he was easy to hate.

I'm sure Arkansas will be on the national recap every week

The offseason begins when your season ends. Even then there are no days off.

Yep, I am looking forward to watching Bert's "adventures" in the SEC.

I hope so, Nova. Staff, can we make that happen?

Shame on you 11W Staff for posting not one but four of those pictures.

My boy and I were laughing so hard I thought we were both going to pee ourselves.  It's like a scene right out of Talladega Nights.  Great stuff!
Not to mention fits Bret to a tee with that smoking hot wife of his. Boogity Boogity Alright;-)

How about any article on Bert needs to have pictures of his wife rather than him?

While I am not against the use of profanity, a head coach spouting it nonstop seems to be unprofessional.

Don't ever go to a practice. :)
But in front of the media, definitely. Most coaches do a pretty good job of keeping themselves "PC" in front of the camera.

I LOVE that this is site has is as childish as me.
I also love to encourage Ramzy's inner troll.

1). Is that porn on the TV?

2). Did they finally find Hoffa in Berts belly button?

3). How does any major program hire this asswipe?

I'm offended that this is acceptable, and Kate Upton isn't. :/

"YOLO" = I'm about to do something extremely ignorant/stupid & I need an excuse to do it.

I dunno, he seems to have the 17-yr old mindset that could be useful in recruiting.

Have you tried Not Your Father's Root Beer?  It tastes just like the real thing, but it packs a punch (5.9%ABV).  It's a little sweet for me though.  Two is my limit.

Speaking of which, I noticed he's kept his recruiting hot-streak going at Arkansas, 5 total recruits thus far lol (2 3*s, 2 4*s, and an unranked kicker). Not terrible, but when you consider how well Tennessee and Kentucky are doing in comparison, selling the same "new start in the SEC" line, the difference in recruiting success stands out a little.

I suppose in his defense, though, he did more with next to nothing at Wisconsin then I've seen from anyone save Alvarez. Guess he's going to try to continue that at Arkansas.

Wait...are these real quotations? Or are they made up? I really can't tell.

northcampus's picture

What a role model. Maybe Arkansas is a better fit for his "talents" than Madison, WI.

And I thought he was an idiot before these quotes.
