The Daily Caller’s David Hookstead joined ESPN 99.5’s “The Forum” with John Nabors to set the record straight about his feud with Arkansas head football coaches wife Jen Bielema.

Bret and Jen Bielema have two conflicting stories about how the couple met according to Hookstead, and he has pointed to several discrepancies between Bret and Jen’s accounts of their meeting. Arkansas fans are absolutely losing their minds about it.

After Hookstead explained the discrepancies cited in a number of interviews with Coach Bielema and his wife to Nabors, the Arkansas radio show host refused to agree that the accounts didn’t match up.

“You are making a lot of assumptions in trying to really kill the character of public figures, especially when you really have no true facts backing it up. You’re just making assumptions and that’s really dangerous,” the radio host said.

Many Arkansas fans have also come after Hookstead with no apparent regard for the facts. (RELATED: Let’s Set The Record Straight On My Feud With Bret And Jen Bielema)

“I have seen some of the Arkansas Twitter responses, if you will. And I gotta admit, most of them are kind of funny,” Hookstead said on “The Forum.”

“But I will say one of the things that’s disgusted me the most over this whole thing is that people — some people on Twitter — who have pushed this narrative that I was motivated because Jen Bielema and I might have had an affair or a relationship when she was in Madison. And that’s sickening and disgusting. And there is no allegation of that nature, to ever be made about someone without concrete proof. Which there isn’t because it’s a ridiculous statement,” he asserted.

Clearly Hookstead’s argument has caused a hell of a stir down in the state of Arkansas.
