    Besides the point, but who are you putting as #3 in the west after Bama and LSU? Miss. St.? Auburn? Those are questionable at best, I'd say.

    I guess my point was if you are at a BCS job where they love and appreciate you, yea, I would just stay there. But if Bielema thought he was going to start feeling the heat soon anyway, then you might as well start chasing paychecks.

    Re: Bielema to Arkansas

    I always thought Bielema was a bit of an idiot. The program made him more than he made the program. All he had to do was not eff it up. I think we will be much better off without him long term. Alvarez will make a good hire and Wisconsin will continue to roll. I can't imagine him having much success down in Arkansas. He'll get destroyed playing programs like Bama, LSU and Florida.

    This is an ego move. He didn't build squat at Wisconsin and was handed the keys to a very good program. He's out to prove that he has what it takes to be successful on his own without Alvarez to help him.

    Isn't it obvious? He was terrified of the hell that Kirk Ferentz, furious from a miserable 4-8 record, was going to unleash on the Big 10, next season.

    We're talkin' something on the scale of the Rave Massacre in the first Blade movie.

    All that's going to be left of the B1G at this time next year, is a room full of blood, chewing gum, and stale farts.

    As a former Iowa player, Kirk gave Bielema the courtesy of jumping ship before the slaughter begins, but make no mistake, Bret only continues living because the Captain allows it.

    The guy just went to 3 straight rose bowls, granted this year it is a farce but it is still 3 straight appearances. That has to give him some equity.

    SEC West 1) Alabama 2) LSU 3) Auburn (look at their history, not just the past couple years with Chiz) 4 and 5) Arkansas/ATM 6) Miss St 7) Ole Miss

    I think that is pretty fair and right now Arkansas would have an edge over aTm but Sumlin seems legit and if Manziel is the real deal they will be tough to beat for the next three years.

    Never argue with an idiot. They will bring you down to their level and then beat you with experience.

    This is an ego move, of course Belima is a Hok so not surprising.

    I can't imagine the money would be that much different.

    Wisconsin is the #3 job in the B1G, or am I missing something. OSU, Mich, Wisconsin, PSU (PSU used to be 3, then child molestation happened) the remaining eight besides maybe Nebraska don't carry any real national weight, but Wisconsin is an established program, with decent tradition and excellent backing.

    Don't get me wrong I think it is funny, but I just don't get the logic.
    Arkansas is a great job. I don't think he's a good fit but Arkansas is a better job than Wisky.
