Yes this, and his wife is a twat...he left the B1G like he was making some statement that he was too good for this shit..in reality Alvarez probably kicked his fat ass down the stairs. Anyone have Bert falling GIF? He just a smug SOB

It's not hate... it's just a running gag about the fact that Bert is almost certainly the douchiest coach in the FBS. I never really thought much about him at all - maybe even thought he was a decent coach - but his exit from Wisconsin was particularly douchey, and the way he and his wife conducted themselves online after moving to Arkansas was especially nasty.

I'm sort of confused as to why an OSU fan doesn't understand or know of the hate towards Bert. The guy is a selfish ass bag and deserves every bit of shit that comes his way, particularly with the way he ran his mouth with how he basically didn't want an SEC coach in the B1G and then ran off for a low end SEC team. And for good measure, this is about as enjoyable as it gets...

That fall measured on the Richter Scale...

My personal favorite was how he used a Cal player's death, immortalized in his statement "death certificates", to campaign against the no-huddle.

Yeah, I almost added that in but figured it would get mentioned as well. He's a heartless, selfish piece of shit that merely wants people to change the rules to adapt to him and will go to great lengths to attempt to prove his point; regardless of how heartless it is.

I think it may have been his first year as HC at Wisconsin and  they were playing Penn State. Right before halftime, Wisconsin scores and has to kick with like :26 seconds on the clock. Bert apparently noticed a rule where he could kick it out of bounds and get a :10 run off, so he did that twice. JoePa was incensed and Bert stood there with a smug grin on his face like he was the greatest thing since sliced bread.

I've hated him ever since. Fun fact, that was also the game JoePa broke his leg.

I remember that game. That was the lone year where the clock started as soon as the ball was kicked on the kick off.

Yep, twice their coverage players ran about 10 yards offside before the kicker got to the ball, and they ran all the seconds off the clock.  Bert had the audacity to deny they did it intentionally afterwards.

Have you seen the guy? how can you not hate hiOSU.

1. He accused Urban of cheating in recruiting and created this whole "we don't do it like they do it in the SEC" crap. That gentleOSUens agreeOSUent BS just because a recruit preferred OSU but verballed to Wisky after tatgate.

2. his wife and her #KarOSUa (not to OSUention the disgustingness of that relationship to begin with)

3. he is an Asshole!

4. Wisconsin is a rival and he was their forOSUer coach (although it is hard not to like Gary Anderson, but I don't)

5. he acted like he is too good for the B1G, and he isn't.

Favorite pic of him.   It really is spot on.  The guy is just so arrogant and he hasn't won anything.  He did get osu once but other than that he loses rose bowls and loses to any decent team he played.  I think I hate him more than any coach in America and that includes jimbo

I wouldn't have to control my anger if you would control your stupidity!

The guy back...waddles into three conference titles, thinks he owns the joint, and pissed and groaned about recruiting tactics.

Dude is/has/always will be a buffoon.

I had to run away high, so I wouldn't come home low...

I think it's his double standard in both coaching tactics and recruiting.

Is this thread even real? I thought everyone knew to hate Bert. I hope all those living in ignorance view this thread so they know how to properly focus their hate.

My friend from college is a Wisconsin fan, and they hate him too.  They really weren't at all sad when he left for Arkansas, even though the timing and the manner in which he left was pretty screwed up.  Seeing him fail in the SEC is icing on the cake for them, almost on the level of joy we get watching Rich Rod win in Arizona after the repeated failure up north.

Also, #karma.  You can thank Jen Bielema for contributing to the hate, and then laughing at the irony of it when bert proceeded to lose all the remaining games on the schedule that year after that point.

Edit:  Let's also not forget Bert's former partner in crime, Bo Ryan.  They were the most punchable tandem of head coaches at a school at any point in the last decade.  Remember #DealWithIt?  Yeah, I do, and I remember the curb stomping we gave you after it.  14 consecutive 3-pointers.

Living in WI now, I can confirm that the state wasn't sad to see him go. Surprised, maybe. The people in this state are so gosh darn nice, but there is definitely a lot of schadenfreude seeing his struggles at Arkansas. His play calling totally sucked (Bollman^2), and his teams consistently failed to finish off big games.

Pay it forward

Wouldn't it actually be just like Bert or Jen to create an 11W account for themselves, just to find out why they are so despised on this board?

Don't forget going for two when they were way up on Indiana late in the game and when a reporter asked about it he couldn't even man up and admit to running up the score and instead rattled off a bullshit "that's what the chart says in that situation" excuse.

He's the equivalent of a "less-smart" version of Homer Simpson. Note: see above gif and NSFW topless pic from the kegger.

I can't remember who on this site said it but I have always remembered this: on the sideline during the game he always has this look on his face like he just ripped a really nasty smelly fart and he's really just enjoying the smell and the fact that everyone else has to smell it too. #yourewelcomeforthatvisual

Flat out said Meyer's recruiting tactics were not above board (illegal), then went on to say he didn't want the B1G to turn into the SEC, which is where ironically he ends up taking a job. He is also a whiny bitch and just a plain asshole.

I must profess I do enjoy a good Bert gif.

He's a turd. Says turd-like things, and acts turd-like ways. He deserves Arkansas, and yes, I mean that, because of their mascot.

I have to upvote this. That is all I can think about this question. This is either an Arkansas fan or someone who just starting following college football this year. If he is an OSU fan he must be 10.

EDIT: I just saw he is 15 so I'll give him some slack.

I currently live in Wisconsin and the hate for that man up here is huge. Sure he won but he was a major douche and treated the fans like scum. I read a thread somewhere where someone said that *ichigan should go after Bert. Just when I didn't think I could hate *ichigan any more...

he created a b1g rivalry/hatred because of outlandish claims and an entitled attitude.

now that hes in the SEC i wish nothing but the best for him to totally eat them alive from within like a cancer.  #bestcoacheshailfromtheB1G

I don't like him for his habit of running up the score on the cupcakes UW scheduled before the conference season started, like 2010 when he put up 70 against Austin Peay.  Really Bert?

HS
ShawneeBuck74's picture

One of the big reasons was that he would talk about going to 3 Rose Bowls and the like, acting as if Wisconsin was on top of the B1G...talking a lot of smack despite the fact that he was 1-5 versus tOSU when it was brought up(and that the only reasons Wisconsin looked as successful as they did under him was that either tOSU was playing in a better BCS Bowl OR we were on probation for Tat-Gate.  He is a decent coach, but couldn't really win the big games for the most part. 

You win with people.

He used to run up the score needlessly...oh wait, that's in vogue now, never mind.

Not that I'm disagreeing with the other things that have been said here.
