Bret Bielema Still Has Ohio State on his Mind

By Jason Priestas on July 29, 2013 at 12:03p

Last Friday, Arkansas landed a commitment from 4-star offensive tackle Jermaine Eluemunor. The junior college prospect chose the Razorbacks over Ohio State after visiting Fayetteville last week.

Arkansas head coach Bret Bielema took to Twitter last night to reflect on the week ahead and to express his gratitude and humility for life's everyday wonders. Wait, what are we saying? This is Bielema were talking about.

We think it's pretty adorable that a coach who went 1-5 against Ohio State while he was at Wisconsin and once admitted that he "hates losing to [Ohio State]" is still thinking about the Buckeyes eight months after jumping to the SEC.

I think he's mad!

Yes, but he making sure he won't lose to OSU this year!  Even though he will be lucky to win 3 conference games.  Not too favorable of a schedule for Bert.
Oh well at least we don't have to listen to his whining in the B1G.

Can't stand Bielema, which is another way of saying I wish Wisconsin had been able to hold onto him. Losing coaches like him is why the Big 10 isn't what it once was.

Good pick up Bert.
Does Urban Tweet or does he leave that to assistant coaches? Also, do tOSU coaches ever throw thinly-veiled barbs at other schools through social media? (Other than tsun which is par for the course).

Oh, Bert. Maybe someday he'll get over his butthurtedness towards us.

Must be awful to wake up every morning, stare at those man-titties in the mirror, and blame Jim Tressel for making them so floppy and flabby.

It's his fault, you know. He lied that one time.

I've never said I 'hate' anyone because that would imply I had any emotion for them whatsoever.

This Just In: Bert loves to play with his twitter, even more than he loves playing with his Wii.

He still mad about Dodson.

Bert's gotta get his wins against us where he can since they didn't come on the field.

Hey Gene and Urban, can we get arkansas on the sched ASAP?

I would love to see Arkansas go winless in the SEC (which looks possible) and lose to Rutgers too.
Also, the plural of university is "universities," not "University's" Bert.

And when we win the game, we'll buy a keg of boooooooooze!! And we'll drink to old Ohio 'till we wobble in our shoes.

Why is no one else tweeting him?

nfischer's picture

I would up vote this is I could! Can anyone imagine Meyer wasting his time in this manner?  Bert is one of a kind. He should probably put down the smart phone and start spending a little more time planning for his first year in SEC land. For the record, I love that fans can still push his buttons from 1000 miles away.

  I recently watched a replay of an OSU vs Iowa game from way back when.  It was a last second Frey to Olive back of the end zone TD that put OSU over Iowa effectively murdering any BIG 10 title hopes they had.
  Good 'ol bert was one of the guys during the replay that would be shown before and after commercials to give a first hand account of, and add context to the game.  
 So in one of the clips he was shown in he said "that was one of the worst losses he ever experienced" and as an asst coach at Wisco used the butthurt suffered in that game as motivation to explain to recruits the importance of every down in every game.
OSU trailed the whole game until the last sec TD to take the lead and the W.   Olive was a beast that game btw.
suck on that shit bert.  asswipe.

I know there's a game Saturday, and my ass will be there.

dudes going to get fired after 3 seasons, if he even lasts that long. Arkansas is 4th in the West, at best and youd have to think Ole Miss will surpass them in a year or two with their stud recruits from last year...5th place SEC west finish behind Bama, TAMU, LSU, and Ole Miss...this is assuming Auburn doesnt improve...and hes gone. Probably off to a low tier Big 12 team after that...iowa state or kansas.

He won't be so chirpy after he emerges hell month against TAMU, Florida, South Carolina, and Bama. Oh, and the official name of Bama is The University of Alabama. Good luck against that "The", Bret.

So, mathematically it's as if:

Bert lands JE, who spurns UCLA and had tOSU in final two. JE has two years eligibility.

Urban lands DK, who spurns Texas and had UCLA and tOSU final two. DK has four year eligibility.

Ohio State is in the equation on both players, and lands the one who has more (time) to offer?

Go back in your hole, Bert. You suck just as much at Twitter.

  Tell it like it is Hovenaut, HaHa....... Umm Berts on the phone,its for you. Do you want to take the call.........( Sorry I thought of that and made myself laugh geez.) Peace.

Saw the tweet about his three straight B1G titles, so I tweeted back to remind him about his three straight Rose Bowl losses. And like somebody else pointed out, I probably wouldn't be bragging about that last one when he finished third in his division. 
I think I'm going to miss that clown though, it just won't be as fun beating Wisconsin's ass when they have a nice guy as coach.

BierStube's picture

I have really never seen 1 player make or break a recruiting "class".  Much like I have really never seen one player beat 11 others (all on his own)!  Football is a team sport and a coach must build the best team he can from what he has to work with.  Based on what we have committed to "the chase" and what Bret, err Bart, err Bort, err Brent has committed thus far, he should probably tone down the 1-0 chat and worry more about the fact Vanderbilt has a better "cruttin" class than Arky!

butthurt (comparative more butthurt, superlative most butthurt)
(slang) Overly annoyed, bothered or bugged because of a perceived insult; aimlessly offended; having an overly sensitive ego. See also: Bielema, Bert

Bucksfan's picture

Loses to Ohio State 5 out of 6 times, complains about SEC-style recruiting coming to the B1G with Urban Meyer, averages a 7th-place finish in B1G recruiting rankings during his tenure, further embarrasses the B1G with 3 straight Rose Bowl losing Badger teams, leaves Wisconsin to have a "better chance at a national championship" at Arkansas, the one SEC school that has never beaten a B1G team in a bowl game, including a loss to Ohio State, has never sniffed a national title, and has never won an SEC title, and yet still thinks he's better than all things "THE" because he beat Urbz to one measily JUCO transfer tackle?
The guy is a passive aggressive, grade-A fuckstick.

acBuckeye's picture

Actually, they claim the 1964 NC, and 30+ years ago, routinely had very good teams..... but I get your point, and I agree wholeheartedly.

Bucksfan's picture

That's funny, because Alabama won both the AP and Coaches' poll national championships that year...representing one of Alabama's 5 or 6 full national titles out of the 15 they claim.

acBuckeye's picture

The AP and UPI polls were awarded before the bowl games in those days. Bama and Arky were both undefeated in the regular season. But Bama lost to Texas in the Orange Bowl, and Arky beat Nebraska in the Cotton to remain perfect. As a result, the FWAA and HAF both awarded Arky the NC after the bowls were complete.
Note: The FWAA is considered one of the selectors of "consensus" championships recognized by the NCAA.
The results of this particular season were a major reason why the major polls started selecting their champions after the bowl games, a few years later.
Alabama: They've pretty much claimed all of the consensus titles awarded to them, but looking back at the records I have a hard time believing their 1941 "title" is legit. That would still leave them with 14 total. I've often wondered why OSU never claimed other possible NC's awarded to them, such as the 1944, 1973, and 1975 teams.

Uh, Bert, the difference is we translate winning in recruiting to winning on the field.  And oh, recruiting is a competition, right up until signing day.  Hope you got that memo when you went to the SEC.

The UW fans were happy to see him go; his act ran very thin the last couple of years.
But on the bright side, he looks to be a perfect fit for his new home.

Looking at Arkansas schedule.   It's pretty brutal:

@Florida, @LSU, @Bama, @Ole Miss.
Home games against South Carolina and A&M.   Ouch!
I wouldn't be surprised if they end up 6-6 or 5-7.
