Watching Bret Bielema And Arkansas Lose Was Everything I Hoped It Would Be

Watching Arkansas lose to Texas A&M Saturday afternoon was an incredible experience.

As we all know, Arkansas football coach Bret Bielema and myself are locked in a feud for the ages. I live in his head rent free and he loses football games. It’s a consistent formula for the past year.

People are finally floating the idea that he’s on the hot seat, and a loss to Texas A&M could end his career with the Razorbacks. Naturally, I rushed out to get a ton of beer this morning so I’d be prepared to watch the Aggies rock Bielema and his team.

It didn’t disappoint. The Aggies won in overtime and possibly broke Bielema’s soul at the same time. I also managed to crush plenty of beer as I bathed in the tears of the Arkansas faithful.

I have no idea how much Bielema regrets cutting and running from Wisconsin for a quick payday in the SEC. I’d have to imagine he wishes he had a time machine to reverse his decision because Arkansas is crashing while his former team is flying high.

I never asked for this war with Arkansas. I didn’t want to destroy their program. I’m a simple guy who likes beer, football, hot women in bikinis and hanging with the guys. I wish I could have kept to my usual routine, but Arkansas forced me into this war.

Since our feud started over a year ago, Bielema and the Razorbacks are only 3-7 against Power Five teams. I told them this would happen, and they didn’t want to list.

Congratulations Bielema and Arkansas fans everywhere. You made this bed, and now you get to sleep in it.
