Not really that big of a deal.

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

This article confirmed everything I'd ever assumed about Bielema.  That he's a complete moron.  I always wondered what happened to the fly/jet-sweeps that they used so successfully to trounce us in 2010.  Then suddenly they were back in the B1GCG along with great use of pre-snap motions and a lot of misdirection we know for certain all that stuff is credit to Canada and Chryst.
Bielema thought they were good enough to do simpleton stuff to win games.  Yea, against most of their schedule, but obviously that broke down against elite competition.  Had he unleashed the bright coaches he had they'd have been even more successful.
Bielema is going where he belongs, to the SEC to coach alongside the likes of other stagnant offensive schemers like Miles, Richt and Saban.

^^^^ THIS times a million. I was going to post about Bielma's stubborn, heavyhanded ways, but you beat me to the punch. Plus points about pointing out that he'll fit in perfectly with all those moronic offensive head-pounders at LSU, Auburn, and UF.

Not trying to sound like a prick, but those "stagnant" offenses are winning national titles. I don't see many spread passing teams winning it.  Those offenses are designed to wear you down by the end of the 3rd QTR, it's not pretty, but it works. Typically teams that run a spread offense suffer on defense. Too many clock stoppages, and not enough rest for the defense. I'm not sure how many titles that stagnant type of football has to win before people realize that spreads were designed to keep less talented teams in games. At the end of the day its about balance. With that being said, I'm pretty excited to see what Braxton can do once he evolves as a passer, but we will still be a running team.

Dustin Fox was our leading tackler as a corner.... because his guy always caught the ball.

Uh, spread doesn't mean you don't or can't run.  You're assuming all spreads are the same and that they're all passing spreads.  That's just not true.
