The following post was made on Hawgs247 by a Wisconsin fan. (I have also included the link to the original post):
SEC needs to stop poking the sleeping beast
First, I'm on record saying this is a good hire for Arkansas and I understand none of you will understand this statement in a vacuum of excitement (or lack there of) in this hire.
But the B1G ... yes the nations richest conference has been asleep for the better part of 2 decades. Complacent, fat and happy. Facilities... who needs them. Coaches / Assistants salaries... we'll find someone.
This hire has had a ripple effect in the B1G. A conference that is two years away from signing the richest TV deal in the history of college athletics... hearing 50+ million per school. The advantage that the SEC has had for a couple decades... passion, most importantly $$... I get the feeling is about to evaporate.
I wish you the best of luck. But people are starting to get pissed of in B1G country. As the old sayin goes... never hit the guy with the bigger stick. Should be interesting to watch over the next decade.

BornToBeRed said: WPS, just a head's up. We might be the most family-friendly board on the network, so take it easy on your normal wps-ness.
The SEC had a good run.
No I did not lose a sig bet, but I am really really really ridiculously good looking.
So a huge TV deal to watch a bunch of mediocre to below par teams try to play football?
Yeah, sounds awesome.
10 Major Poll National Titles (CFB record)
35 Bowl Wins (CFB record)
72 Wins over last 6 years (CFB record)

Telling myself it's not as hard as it seems - Led Zeppelin
Oh no! We suck again!
Dude seriously got his panties in a wad over Bret? Wow.
We are going to able to do cash handshakes and drop bags of cash all around campus during visits just like the SEC. I can't wait.
The Big Ten makes it rain with the Arab Money that's about to be flowing in. LOL at other conferences.
I already have procured a solid list of southern churches...
NCAA is onto the churches. Classic B1G. Always behind on how to cheat.
We play in the ACC! Watch out bitches!
Pain is temporary. It may last a minute, or it may last a year. But eventually, it will subside. If i quit, however it will last forever.
Free Bojangles for all ACC members!

The ACC will rise agai....oh wait.
I figured y'all would love this lol
I will see you Jan 1 buddy!
I don't expect that game to be within 28. I have Georgia at 33 confidence points in my bowl pick em pool.
Y'all can get your own damn thread. Let's stay on topic. Make fun of the Wisky poster.
We're too busy showing everyone how to make $$$ in tv....it happens.
I think your giving way to much credit. It will be will be a good game.
Big Ten already spent all that money on Bielema's farewell party. It involved a cruise ship and nobody named Bret on board.
This came from a fan of ... Wisconsin?
I mean of all teams to say that they're about to go on a spending spree

Can't make fun of the Wisky poster when I agree with him. B1G coming for you fools.
