Arkansas should let Bielema go after the season

By Anthony Caruso III | Publisher

Arkansas football coach Bret Bielema is looking like a fool right now. A new video came out today that showed that he flopped in order to draw an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty against Alabama Crimson Tide offensive lineman Cam Robinson.

After drawing the penalty, Bielema celebrated as his defense walked off the field. He has been a horrible fit for the Razorbacks and the administration should look at giving him the door now and look to make a decision in the coming weeks.

Bielema is not good enough to coach in the Southeastern Conference with some of the best coaches in all of college football. He has to cheat to win, but that penalty didn’t help his team as they still lost to Alabama.

His team is just 2-4 this season. They opened the season with a huge win over UTEP with a 48-13 score. Then they were able to escape with a 24-20 win over the Tennessee Volunteers.

He took the Razorbacks job after he complained about his assistants not making enough money with the Wisconsin Badgers. He could have been the Badgers head coach for the rest of his life before retirement – yet, he took the money and ran.

Sometimes, the grass isn’t greener on the other side, and that’s the case here. Arkansas is 12-19 during his tenure thus far.

He had a respectable 7-9 mark during his first season. Then, they dropped to 3-9 last season before this season’s record.

In the past two seasons, his team had big leads on the Texas A&M Aggies at AT&T Stadium in Arlington. However, each time, the Razorbacks lost in overtime.

The 45-year-old has an 80-43 record, as a head coach. But as you can see, the majority of those wins came with the Badgers.

He was the Wisconsin head coach from 2006 through 2012. He was 32-8 in his final three years at the school before heading South.

Since he left, the Badgers are on their second head coach as Paul Chryst replaced Gary Andersen when he left for Oregon State in the off-season.

No question, Bielema should be fired after the season. But we know he won’t be going back to the Badgers since he ruined that relationship when he decided to leave.
