Some are calling the Bielema hire a "homerun hire." lol what?
Here's what I said:
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 agree. The homerun hires wouldn't leave to go to Arkansas. It's to risky. The one that are left are outside the SEC. So it was safe for them. More like a ground rule double. Think he's a good coach. For his sake he'd better be. The waters of the west are shark infested....
I think Bielema isn't a bad coach. He's an above average coach. Many fans of Iowa have been saying how much they want him to coach here because his pro style offense actually has a pulse, he isn't an uptight conservative coach like Ferentz, he is young with fire, etc. Personally, I don't agree with all of that. Maybe I just have too much of a disrespect for him to ever picture him on the sidelines as Iowa's coach.
That said, I don't think it was a bad hire. Not a home run hire. IF I were an Arkansas fan, he wouldn't be the coach I would want.

this was the most confusing hire ive seen in a while. i heard it on the radio when i was driving home from work yesterday and thought surely i was mistaken. he doesnt look like hed fit in with the SEC crowd at all. talk about coming out of left field

You just went from "crazy uncle" to "sloppy loser cousin who waxes his old Trans Am in a wife beater while blasting Van Halen."
