We knew he was obnoxious, but this strikes me as unseemly; slimey even.

...the Razorbacks left the rest of the country gobsmacked last week by poaching the architect of back-to-back-to-back Big Ten championship teams at Wisconsin.

Oooh, he's "the architect" of something now, and we've been gobsmacked!
Now that he's in the SEC, it seems the media thinks he's God's gift to the world.  What's the over/under on his stay there, 3 years?

3 years sounds right.
Hope his agent negotiated a huge buyout.

I'll put $50 on the under.

Distinguishing characteristics of the class act that typifies The B1G as exemplifed by our illustrious Leaders.GO BUCKS!

I wish I didn't know now what I didn't know then.

If you look closely you'll see that the letter is written on a Golden Corral napkin! I can picture Bret dipping a huge drumstick into the chocolate fountain!

All this proves is that Bielema wanted to go to Arkansas as soon as September.

Yep. It was a subtle foot in the door for the job search that was inevitably coming (even before the epic collapse, I don't think they were going to stick with JLS).

BB the architect of a 1-5 record against the Buckeyes.  My favorite line is "as a head coach I know that my comments are looked at in every way possible."  I'm very impressed that he resisted the urge to put a "wink, wink" at the end of that statement.  I would guess that most of the Wisconsin alumni and fans now sees what a douche they had as coach for the last 7 years.

Nice way to lay a foundation for future employment.  It worked!  I dislike Bert as much as the next guy, but it seems to be smart business to get your foot in the door whenever possible.  He wrapped it up in an ecouraging letter of support.  Good for Bert.  He' better start sending letters to all the MAC schools next, because he'll need the inroads when he falls on his face in the next 3 years.
