Your team is on a four-game losing streak.

The average score in those losses? 19-39.

You just lost to South Carolina 7-52.

Yet, you felt the need to open your pie hole last week.

Quotes from Bert at an Arkansas booster club:

    "I came to the SEC for a variety of reasons, but the major one in my mind was to win an SEC championship."

He then went on to tug at Satan's Saban's cape:

    "You can take Saban's record when he was at Michigan State and when he was a coach in the Big Ten and put it against mine, and he can't compare."


Saban at Michigan State (1995-1999)
Overall: 34-24-1
Big Ten: 23-16-1
Last Season at Michigan State: 9-2 (6-2)

Bert at Wisconsin (2006-2012)
Overall: 68-24
Big Ten: 37-19
Last Season at Wisconsin: 8-5 (4-4)


Yes Bert, your record with an established Wisconsin program was better than Saban's when he was rebuilding Michigan State.

Perhaps you should put more time and focus on winning at your current team than comparing records between Saban and yourself from different eras in the Big Ten.


Bert, your team is 3-4 with the wins over powerhouses Louisiana-Lafayette (34-14), Samford* (31-21) and Southern Miss (24-3).

*Losing 21-17 after the 3rd quarter.


You have not defeated a team in the SEC.

After today you should be 0-1 against Saban and 3-5 on the season.

It's surprisingly easy to root for Sabama today.

Karma 216, Bert 3.

We have filled the Braxton Miller position.

Forgot to put this in the piece:
Saban in SEC: 70-21 (42-9 at Alabama)
Bert in SEC: 0-3

I will root for Alabama to lose.  I hate Bert, but Alabama needs to lose.  They won't, but I will root for them to.

I will too, but will be quite happy when Bert's boys lose this one.

He will be coaching Bobby Boucher at South Central Louisiana State University in two years.  This is Arkansas pulling a Rich Rod. 

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

I think he'll succeed Ferentz in a few years, when he's fired at Arkansas and Ferentz finally gets cheap enough to buy out.

Jonnferrell's picture

By the time he bombs out in Arkansas he will have to succeed Bobby at Western Ky.

Keep forgetting about that, Bert has his resume appropriately updated:

We have filled the Braxton Miller position.

Im not sure he even wins an SEC game this year the team is not very good and his chances of beating Bama today are about as good a chance as Brady Hoke passing up a Buffet.

Michigan Sucks!

What a delusional fat slug that Bert is....hahaha

Class of 2010.

fat boy will be 4-8 at seasons end if he's lucky.  the only possible win he has left on his schedule is Mississippi State and thats not a sure thing.  bert will be home for the holidays because the hogs will not be bowl eligible this year.  they will get destroyed by bama, lsu, ole miss, and auburn.

Did he say this again? Bert made the same comment regarding Saban's B1G record several months ago. I'm surprised that he would have said this again after his little losing streak.

Then again, it is Bert. I guess nothing he says really surprises me anymore. Unless of course he said "No more pie for me, thanks". That would surprise me.

We can't stop here; this is bat country...

You would think that poking the Saban bear would be something to avoid when your team has done nothing this season.  Bert being Bert.

Fat ass = Fat head = Bert

This looks like the Bert transitive theory.

BERT, has to be one of the stupidest coaches in the country. He had a lifetime head coaches job at Wisconsin. Instead he takes the HC job at Arkansas and actually believes he can coach them to a National Title, but instead he will not survive his current contract.

Poison nuts's picture

I'm beginning to wonder if he'll make it to next season. I think he's done. He's not just losing, he's losing in a way that's straight up embarrassing.

Bert is a turd and everyone knows it.
You have to look at Arkansas. From the beginning, you had signs this was a bad fit. Sometimes there are hires that just look like a bad fit. There are no signs of you competing in the SEC West anytime soon. You have the in-conference competition and you have T. Boone U., Oklahoma, and the Texas schools close to you. You are very close to Missouri with Kansas City and St. Louis, and you have schools like Ohio State with Urban Meyer coming in and getting players like Ezekiel Elliott. Fayetteville and Northwest Arkansas is growing and has some money with the Wal-Mart and Tyson chicken folks. Ozarks are nice, but you are off the beaten path so to speak. You don't see a way out for Arkansas. You wonder when they are going to realize it, cut ties, and start over.
Bert could end up at Iowa, but I really wonder if some of the big schools would really take a chance after the way things are turning out at Arkansas. He is an asshole. He has big name enemies in the coaching profession, like Urban Meyer and his former boss, Barry Alvarez. He will still get a shot at a mid-major school.

Bert - you couldn't beat LUKE FICKELL!
