New, 3 comments

Oh, man, this is maybe the best thing to ever happen to Badger Hate Week. BIELEMA FOR BIG NOGGIN ON SATURDAY!

Let's turn it over to Yahoo Sports' Pat Forde, who appears to have broken the news:

In a stunning coup, Arkansas will hire Wisconsin's Bret Bielema as its next football coach, Yahoo! Sports has learned.

Bielema, who has taken the Badgers to three straight Rose Bowls, was nowhere on the radar amid months of speculation over who Arkansas would hire.

BWAH HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA

*deep breath*

BWAH HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA

Oh, man.

And there's this...

Better make sure that Arkansas contract is ironclad before you head out to Pasedena to get destroyed by Stanford first. Can't the Rose Bowl step in here and tell UW that they don't want that to happen so, y'know, Wisconsin fans don't spend the whole game booing Bielema?

How about some words from Every Day Should Be Saturday's Spencer Hall?

Oh, and he'll be playing a much tougher schedule than he did at Wisconsin, will face Les Miles and Nick Saban every year for the foreseeable future, and has no idea how nice and reasonable Badgers fans will seem in comparison to the deranged embrace of hardcore Razorbacks fans.

Whoopsies.

And what's this?

Except for the paychecks. And the locations.

And speaking of locations, I'll send you out on yesterday's Bomani & Jones. It dealt with the concept of lots of schools and their fans thinking that Jon Gruden might be interested in their job, but the section starting at the 1:03 mark seems particularly relevant right now.
