Is Bret Bielema the right "fit" for Arkansas?


The qualifications needed for Arkansas' head coach were pretty heavily debated on this board with many Arkansas fans saying they needed a nails recruiter (b/c in their words, paraphrased, Ark is a desolate wasteland devoid of any football talent) , a great QB developer and an innovative offensive mind.

That said Bielema is a pretty good coach but did Arkansas just hire Les Miles-lite without the hardware?

Is ocelot4ark predicting what the next 5 or so years will look like?

Arkansas already had Les Miles' offensive philosophy with Houston Nutt. It worked, sometimes, to around the same winning percentage miles enjoyed at OSU. Miles' philosophy won't work at Arkansas because he wouldn't get the athletes in the trenches needed.

If he's as big a dick as they say he is, they followed the formula to the letter. I can't wait to read the letter he leaves for his players when he sneaks out of Madison.

Which is even more laughable now that they hired a guy who flat out has never recruited.

All I said is we needed someone who could develop talent...which is why Miles wasn't a fit IMO.

Bielema can cuz he apparently doesn't recruit worth a shite.

I wonder what the fan base for Wisconsin's feelings are about his departure?

Bielema will say he just plans to make Arkansas the Nebraska of the SEC. So if he treats it like he did at Wiscy, expect lots and lots of roided up white dudes on the OL.

I really think Bielema's a good coach and wouldn't mind him here (maybe) given our resources.

This post isn't really even to call out ocelot4ark specifically; his post just summed up the general sentiment of a lot of Arkansas fans on this board from what i could tell.

Not sure yet. He is a proven winner and always fields a tough physical defense. If he can even get a decent recruiting class here he will do fine. He's a great evaluator of talent and turns 3 star linemen into first and second round pics. I think he will fit better here than most are thinking. Can't argue with wins and he has a better resume than most of the candidates that were on our "radar". Time will tell but I am actually pleasantly surprised by this hire.

I'm betting fans in Pittsburgh are thinking someone is about to pillage their coach once again

Like I said, my opinion. Apparently a lot of your own fan's opinions.

NFL loves....I mean LOVES drafting and paying undeveloped players especially in the first round. It's an interesting business model to be sure but i'm sure they have their reasons.

its just funny to see some you highlighting specific things you like about him, which can easily be said about Miles, yet most of you felt your job was above Les

To be fair, he has a far better resume than Les Miles when he was hired by LSU in 2005. But then again, Brett Bielema isn't walking into a program that was built by Nick Saban.

which is fine


we'll see, certainly didn't see it


but LSU fans are going to take shots at this

all we heard for a week was how no piglet wanted Les Miles

then ya'll hire Les Miles without much hardware

Could work out. But for all the "hate" LSU fans took for defending Les, well 85-20 in the SEC>>>>>>>>>>>>65-30 in the big10

that's a fact


but it's a big name somewhat I guess

I never said I love this hire anyway. We'll see if it grows on me later.

I just don't feel it's humiliating or laugh worthy.
