In 2013, Bret Bielema was just starting at Arkansas. His wife Jen criticized the Wisconsin Badgers, his former employer, after they lost to the Arizona State Sun Devils early on that season.
Jen posted in Twitter, “#Karma” after the loss. Bielema left the Badgers following the 2012 season after he felt like his assistant coaches were underpaid.
The Badgers began the season with 2-1 record following the loss to the Sun Devils. Despite the loss, Wisconsin finished with a 9-3 record under former head coach Gary Andersen.
Andersen was the Badgers Head Coach for two seasons. In those two seasons, the team went 19-7.
In Bielema’s first season with the Razorbacks, the team went 3-9. In two seasons, they went 10-17.
Following the 2014 season, the Badgers hired Paul Chryst has Head Coach. Through this season, Wisconsin is 50-12 since the Sept. 2013 #Karma tweet by Jen Bielema.
In contrast, the Razorbacks have gone just 26-34. His best record at the school was 8-5 in 2015.
This season, Arkansas went 4-8 this season and just 1-7 within the Southeastern Conference. Following their season-ending 48-45 loss to the Missouri Tigers, Bielema was fired as he was walking off the field.
Wisconsin is perfect this season with an 11-0 record. Following the loss by No. 2 Miami (Fla.) Hurricanes on Friday, the Badgers, if they can defeat the Ohio State Buckeyes next weekend in the Big Ten Conference Championship game, will advance to the College Football Playoff.
Clearly, Bielema made the wrong decision by going to Arkansas. He’ll try to rebound on his feet with a new job this offseason.
