Bielema On Saban: “Can’t Compare.” On Previous Staff: “Emphasis On Pretty Boys”

gfx - they said itWhen Bret Bielema was at Wisconsin, he didn’t hesitate to talk about the SEC.  Now that he’s at Arkansas, he’s not shy about bragging about his days in the Big Ten.

Speaking to a booster club in Benton, Arkansas this week, Bielema aimed a portion of his comments at Nick Saban and Alabama.

 

The reason the SEC is talked about all the time is one team, because of their dominance. But I didn’t come here to play Alabama. I came here to beat Alabama.

 You can take Saban’s record when he was at Michigan State and when he was a coach in the Big Ten and put it against mine, and he can’t compare.”

 

While Alabama has won three titles in recent years, Florida (two), LSU and Auburn are also responsible for the SEC’s seven straight national titles.  And as this graphic on winning percentages shows, a lot of coaches have had better winning percentages than Saban did at Michigan State.  Saban compiled  a 34-24-1 record while coaching the Spartans.  It’s what he’s done since then – a national title at LSU and three championships in four years at Alabama -that have made him the stuff of legend.

Bieleman, a former defensive lineman, also had this to say about the type of players recruiting at Arkansas under former coach Bobby Petrino.

 

“The previous staff had many guys at wideout and running back. They really had an emphasis on the pretty boys.”

 

To fit his offense, Bielema told the crowd he wants to recruit heavily in Texas and Florida.

In case you’re wondering, Bielema’s Razorbacks will travel to Tuscaloosa to face Saban’s Alabama team on October 19th. (Hat Tip to CBSSports and ArkansasExpats)

He's not exactly endearing himself to the rest of the conference either by implying that the SEC only has one quality team.  You can pretty much guarantee that every conference opponent will have the Arky game circled on their calendar this Fall.

Nick Saban could take the same sentence, make it current instead of ancient history, apply it to Bielema, and it would go something like this:

"You can take his record for the last ten years and put it against mine, and he can't compare."

Something tells me words won't be necessary to get the point across.

In fairness, Saban also coached in the Big Ten when it was a better conference.  Outside of OSU's string of success in the early-mid 2000s, the Big Ten hasn't been playing any great football in about a decade.  I hope Bielema makes Arky competitive as I hate having weak schools in the league, but the dude needs to walk the walk before he starts talking.

Simply an idiotic comment.

Whatever Beilema's current winning percentage is against Saban, I would be willing to bet it's the highest it will ever be.

Well, while I would normally hesitate to predict the outcome of any sporting contest 5 months in advance, I think I will take Bama and Nick Saban this year over Arkansas, but a lot. Here's to hoping Beilema is as entertaining talking about Lea Miles, Sumlin, Freeze, Mullin.........

@I4Bama Assuming the "point" will be made on national tv, I'll make sure I'm watching.

Please don't mention Kiffin. Us Vol fans are trying to purge him from memory. Every time his name is mentioned, it makes us get diarrhea again.
