Regardless of their records/resume when they were hired, Bielema is in a 10x harder situation than Miles came into. He is entering a division that has 4 out of the last 5 national champions, possibly 5 of the last 6. He is coming into a division that has 3 10-win teams this season. He is bringing an offense where he will have to out-recruit Saban AND Miles just to have marginal success. On top of that, he is in a state with mediocre high-school talent.
You can't deny that 11 wins at Wisconsin is pretty impressive. Let's see what he does with a lot more talent.
But a 2-4 bowl record including 0-2 in BCS games is slightly more telling.
