Hogs’ Bielema Compares Fans From Different Regions

gfx - they said itBret Bielema has been a head coach in the Big Ten and now he’s a head coach in the SEC.  Who better to ask about the difference in fan fervor between the two areas, Midwest and South:

 

“(At tonight’s event) you’ve got 700 people, sold the place out, very excited, very passionate people that love their Hogs, love to hear about them on a daily basis.  The great thing is, it’s been this way everywhere we’ve been, no matter if it’s northeast, southwest, everywhere we’ve been in Arkansas has been very positive…

(At Wisconsin there was) obviously not near as much passion especially in all the maybe small- or medium-sized towns where you’ve got the whole people coming out and supporting everything and doing it in a way that they show all their passion on a daily basis.”

 

Bielema was also asked by SportingLifeArkansas.com about a comment he made to boosters last week that turned into a national story.  Bielema has since said he was joking when he compared his resume to Nick Saban’s.  “It’s just also a reminder on a daily basis that everything is public.  It’s just, you can’t interpret tones.  When I made a comment last week, it was kind of a rebuttal to a question and everybody was laughing and joking around and obviously it was taken out of context.”
