Bret Bielema spoke to the Saline County Razorback Club, claiming he came to Arkansas to win SEC Titles. He also threw in a dig at Nick Saban,
pointing out how he was a much better Big Ten coach than Saban was at Michigan State.
“I came to the SEC for a variety of reasons, but the major one in my mind was to win an SEC championship.”
The new head Hog, hired in December from Wisconsin, then addressed two-time defending national champion Alabama and Coach Nick Saban. “The reason the SEC is talked about all the time is one team, because of their dominance. But I didn’t come here to play Alabama. I came here to beat Alabama.
“You can take Saban’s record when he was at Michigan State and when he was a coach in the Big Ten and put it against mine, and he can’t compare.”
