Hell’s bells, is there anything more amusing than Houston Nutt passing judgment on Bret Bielema?
Makes you wonder what Pork Rind Jimmy’s up to these days.
Filed under Bert... uh... Bret Bielema, Sometimes You Feel Like A Nutt
Nutt’s probably correct in his assessment, but it’s hard to take it seriously coming from him.
And, wow, the rest of that article just had “mail it in” written all over it! You can tell the “writer” is ready for vacation.
I wonder how Nutt’s sidepiece that he was texting with his work phone is doing?
Bert has been able to seemingly get credit for his big wins and somehow the losses have been teflon. In that respect, Arkansas is a microcosm of SEC West. Ultimately, his teams are NEVER complete, and I think it is a reflection of the fact that he is not nearly as detail-oriented as one needs to be to succeed in the SEC. The fact that Arkansas is a competitive disadvantage in recruiting relative to Bama, LSU, Auburn, A&M, and arguably Ole Miss (on account of cheating) narrows his margin for error.
Unless things go drastically wrong or an ugly 8-4/7-5, I can’t see them firing him in 2017.
Stick a microphone in a man’s face and he will say something.
Pay a man to say something and he will eventually say anything.
Bielema is the new mad hatter except his ballsy in-game decisions have failed more than they’ve worked. Don’t know how many times I’ve seen them lose because he decided to go for it on 4th down when it wasn’t even necessary, only to end up losing any momentum. It’s not so much his choices but WHEN he makes them. It kinda reminds me of how we ran our offense this year.
Pork Rind Jimmy remains legendary for the best Nutt cutting procedure in the people helping business
