Curious as to what everyone's very first reaction was when you first heard the news of Brent Bielema as your new coach.
Gringo Mafia Sergeant at Arms - 5 time POTW
Disagree. This was not a "homerun hire."
This was more of a seeing eye single that somehow made its way up the middle, right outside of the diving shortstop's glove.

i'll be the first to admit that after reading his name yesterday i thought "f. no long surely didn't hire that guy. i can't stand him"
but after watching his introductory PC a few minutes ago, my perception of the guy is completely changed. i am eagerly looking forward to next year and the years that follow. i think he will do good things for the football program.
Mine was F$$$ Notre Dame. They got lucky vs BC, Stanford beat them, and Pitt should have.
based on presser, seemed hard nosed and also extremely intelligent. I came away extremely impressed. regardless of how this thing went down, I truly believe we got a great one! WPS
I think for the most part man, Arkansans only watch 1) razorbacks 2) sec ball... so I dont think I can speak for the state but I expect most people were like "Oh no!"
Im guessing that he will be the most popular guy in Arkansas right around spring ball and remain that way as long as he delivers.
Personally Im ecstatic. Great hire, this is a guy that really gets tough play football and I think it will translate well here.
Home is where the heart is. This is a map of mine.
Be prepared for up north smash mouth football. This guy recruits offensive line and power running backs extremely well.
Thanks for the info.
